    I have a very nice old leather suitcase that I would like to get relined with some houndstooth fabric I found. Anybody have suggestions on who could do it? The suitcase does not have a maker listed so I can't send it back to the manufacturer. I live in a moderately sized city (1.5 million) and there is only 1 place that advertises luggage repair...I called them and they don't reline cases, nor could they provide specific recommendations...

    Thoughts appreciated.

    A Google of 'suitcase relining' (no quotation marks in the search) turns up Style Forum as the top hit, so maybe he did. [​IMG]

    I always Google first! No luck, though perhaps if I spent more time sifting through all the junk I would get lucky...

    Have you tried House of Fleming, they might do it or know someone who does?
