Jacket Repairs-

Main Zipper Replacement

Option 1: For $40 we will cut out the old zipper and overlay a new zipper onto the face of the jacket. We don't open any seams for this option.

Option 2: For $60 to $100 (depending on jacket construction) we will open all seams to remove the old zipper. Then we sew in a new zipper. It will look similar to the original construction.
