"Norris Raymond do repairs and alterations, as well as custom designs, including motorcycle leathers. They replaced a pocket zip in an original Lewis Leathers Bronx Jacket (made by Highwayman branded Aviakit) and went to the trouble of exactly matching the zip and puller. They used the original stitch holes and it is impossible to tell that the zip has been replaced. Cost £25! Another BLUF member had them alter some leather jeans and was very satisfied with the work. I think they are only open to callers in the mornings so telephone first. Nearest station is Dalston Junction."

Five decades in leather – and Norris Raymond is still going strong in Dalston! Master tailor Norris Raymond has seen plenty of fashion styles come and go, from bell bottoms to slim fit suits via ’80s high power shoulder pads. He might have officially retired, but aged 72 he still comes into work to create made-to-measure leather and sheepskin jackets for private clients, which could involve seven hours of fittings. He also works with a new generation of fashion designers like Mimi Wade, all eager to learn his craftsman’s skills.
Great service. Both gentlemen were very friendly, and did a stellar job of shortening the sleeves on my leather biker jacket. They returned my jacket in 2 days, and the pricing was very reasonable. AND, upon collection, the owner said that if there were any changes needed, they'd be free of charge.
Exactly as describen, the delicatessens for the leather sheep specialist
