    My nephew just received this sweet vintage Grais d-pocket. Broken main zipper is only problem with it. Anyone happen to know of anyone in the Houston area who could replace the zipper?

    Don't know about the Houston area, but Dena at Leather Care Specialists comes with a reputation of doing quality work. She is in Illinois. See link below. Also you might call Alan at Johnson Leathers in San Fransisco.

    Sending my Goodgal to her this afternoon! Just got off the phone with her. Wonderful to talk to and a stones throw from my old home town of Peoria.

    I think you would enjoy the results either way. Looks like someone cut off the top straps, which I can never spell correctly. Beautiful, amazing grain & patina on that jacket. Truly worth spending some $$$ and getting the zipper replaced indeed.

    Appreciate the suggestion. You'd trust them with a main zipper replacement?
