I am going to start doing track days with my new 08' zx-10r so I decided to buy a 1 PC Alpinestars suit. I found the one I want and the size I need but unfortunately I am 5'10" and the suit that will fit me is for a person who is 6'3". The suit fits pretty good everywhere except for the length. I did some searches online and it looks there are a number of shops in the US that do alterations to leather suits.

But here is the question: can you guys recommend the best alteration shop you know of because I am a little bit nervous about sending a new $1000 suit off to a shop without knowing something about their reputation. Shops in the southeast would be preferred given that I am in Atlanta. Thanks.

yea it was pretty cheap and they made sure to inform me that they reinforced all the stitching according to how the suit was originally made, i was happy with it.

If you are spending $1000 plus alterations, you would be better off just going full custom. You will have a much better suit as well as one that fits perfectly.

I've been very happy with my syed. For $1100 to $1400 you can get whatever you want.
