Hi all,
This probably could go in SW&D or MC but I figured that this group is bit more savvy when it comes to tailoring and alterations on things other than jeans so I'd like to ask for some advice...

I'm interested in having a pair of tall leather boots altered. In particular, I'd like to add a side-zipper. These are not the boots I have, not the style but it just gives you a basic idea of what I had in mind:

My boots certainly aren't any where near the price range of the Rick and CCP boots shown above, but I don't want to half-ass it or screw up a DIY attempt. I'm hoping that someone could recommend a leather tailor in the DC/Baltimore area who could do this type of work?

thanks in advance!

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
