I need to get zippers added to the front pockets of a leather jacket with very heavy leather, as the pocket openings are sagging a little bit with use. Any suggestions on good leather jacket makers in the New England area who can tackle this job without a significant impact to the jacket? Thanks!

I would first ask around at local cobblers. A shoe repair guy could easily add a zipper.

I didn't realize it would be that straightforward!

Where could I purchase a couple of high quality YKK zippers in antique brass with a ball and chain pull to match the rest of the jacket?

Like this pull in the pocket:

Or at least one with a small talon that can be hidden away yet sturdy enough to not easily break since I do use the pockets from time to time. Thanks!

This looks bad ass.
