Hmm. What do you use for "the scuffing up"? A file, as suggested above?
Ack, I had hoped for better options than the circular file.I have contemplated applying some kind of tacky material to the rings or even trying to roughen the metal somehow but only as as last resort. I would rather not damage the belt at all if possible.
[Not to be confused with a slippery O ring. ] The metal rings on some of my ribbon D ring belts are extremely slippery. They will not grip the fabric securely so I am constantly re-tightening the belt over the course of the day. Anyone else have this issue? How have you solved it?
I have a vintage light brown leather jacket I would like professionally (re)dyed a dark blue. Can anyone recommend a (cobbler, tailor, whatever) shop that specializes in this kind of work? I live in the DC Metro area but I am certainly willing to ship my jacket to another state if necessary to get the best result.

Would prefer no obvious branding but a very small, discreet logo would be ok. I checked out Monoprix but their few offerings were both too big and canvas constructed. Any recommendations for where to look (and hopefully buy) would be greatly appreciated.
