    I just added zippers to the sleeves in this jacket (where there were no zippers before). The jacket was sent for this reason and also for a new lining which is why you don't see one in the jacket. I don't have that done yet. [​IMG]

    Would you happen to be the one and only Dena of Great Leather? If so then welcome to the fedora lounge! We have been reading a lot of great things and looking at pictures of your marvelous work for awhile now.

    I believe it is! I’ve got two more jackets due back Monday from Dena. I can personally attest that she does indeed know leather and is an absolute delight to work with!
    Welcome Dena!

    Welcome and looks great - it's helpful to say who did it, how much and time frame, also what make of jacket that is. Nice work.

    Yes, she is the famous Dena. Welcome, Dena.

    I'm going to move this to the Merchant's forum.

    This post makes me happy.

    After @ton312 mentioned having some work done by Great Leather that he was happy with, I contacted Dena yesterday to ask about a project I was interested in having her do for me. We exchanged emails for a bit, she was super responsive, and asked me where I heard of her, I told her, and now here she is.

    She's going to get so much love here. Probably triple her business, too. Welcome, @iknowleather!

    When we have questions about alterations and such, she can give her professional opinion. I imagine there will be several of us who will want to avail ourselves of her expertise in leather repair and alterations..

    In the past I have sent my jackets to Allen at JL in San Fransisco, but now that Dena is so accessible, that will probably change.

    Good idea. I'll post a shot of the jacket label, etc. when I check in tomorrow. Thanks for the input!

    I'm still learning how FL works. I thought I just replied but I don't see it. I don't want to miss replying where I should.
    My reply (which may show up twice now I'm not sure) was that I can post a photo of the jacket label, etc. when I check in tomorrow. I also want to thank you for the input:) Good idea!

    So Merchant's forum is the place for me, instead of Outerwear?

    Dena,
    I think you can post in Outerwear now, which is probably where you will want to post because it gets a lot more traffic than the Merchant section.
    @Peacoat, am I correct that Dena can post in Outerwear and elsewhere as she pleases?

    I think the bartender should clarify, but the Merchant forum is more appropriate for a merchant promoting their business. But they should be able to post in other forums as well as, as long as its on topic. Eg, to respond to a topic with their expertise on the topic of the thread, not to promote their business in an off topic manner. Or to start a thread on a topic appropriate to the forum, that isn't a promotion for their business.

    We see a few merchants who post or reply to topics on the Outerwear forum: Carrie from Thurston Bros., occasionally employees from Aero, David Himel of Himel Bros, and Theodoros of Thedi. It's always a treat to see them contribute to the forum here when they have the time.

    I got the lining in today. Here's the only label that was in it. I don't recognize it but the leather is my favorite! Heavy but very soft and pliable. Just like in the old days! fyi- the customer sent the fabric he wanted in it.
