So, in the near future my third hand GW Dubow is going to need a new zipper as the pin on the non-slider side is starting to separate from the binding. John recommended Dena at Great Leather, who has already been great to deal with and I'd be fine with that but they are in Illinois (I'm in S.F. CA.) and I'd like to avoid the added hassle and worry of shipping my beloved jacket across country. I'm wondering if anyone has experience with Johnson Leathers repair service? They are obviously much more local and I could talk to them face to face about what I'd expect. I have a new zip coming already so that's sorted at least. Thanks for the help. Edited to make things clearer. I hope.
