Joseph was the best! I had spoken with him a few times in email regarding a separate matter and he was prompt in returning my messages. When I had a minor issue I needed fixed on my leather bag, I thought of him immediately. He was super friendly, patched up the little slice on my bag handle with some leather cement, and wouldn't let me pay him for it either. When I need some leather fixed, I know JUST who to go to!

I have had a number of items either repaired or made by Joe and they have all been first rate. He has repaired my MC Jacket, & Chaps. The work was perfection and I continue to wear those items knowing if they would ever need more repairs and if Joe would be willing to do the work, he would certainly be my first choice. He designed and made a custom a pair of 501 style leather shorts with suspenders that are simply not available out of a catalogue or any store I've been in. They are a great pair of HOT leather shorts! Thanks Joe!
The absolute best work Joe has done for me was the leather re-upholstering of a 20's vintage oak rocking chair I had restored. The detail in the welting, the attention to detail, and the use of the brand in the hide on the back side of the chair was an outstanding feature. The chair is a beautiful and comfortible addition to my home. Again, Thanks Joe!!!!!!!

I sent Joseph a diagram of a "walking wallet" that I wanted duplicated. After several emails and clarifications I thought I would end up with something really close to the original. Sadly it was not. Not only were the dimensions not right, one request was missing, and the stitching was terrible - uneven, loose - not good. Honestly, it looks like I tried to do it myself. I told him it wasn't what I expected thinking he would ask what I was unhappy with and that we could maybe try again, but didn't get much of a response. He might do some things really well, but sadly, not this project. The leather itself was very nice and there was definitely effort made, but not enough attention to detail.

Sorry about that Kristine: Butt that's not how I read the E mails. You sent a URL of a walking wallet and I got the measurements from there. As far as expressing your displeasure, you wrote, "I should have been there in person." I took that to mean you didn't get someting right and when I didn't get a reply to my next E mail, I assumed that was it. This was days befor Christmas. Out side of the measurments, I still will stand ready to make right any flaw. Again Sorry.

Expert tailoring and prompt service. I mailed a pair of pants from Connecticut for zipper repair and they came back great!

Joseph knows his business...I highly recommend The Leather Tailor.

Message from Leather Tailor

As a 70's biker, I started making my own leather, then my buds and soon their buds and then a tax number. The rest is history. Doing all things with leather for over 40 years. I am a leather maker/tailor located in Milwaukee WI, just down the street from Harley Davidson HQ. I make and repair leather garments of all sorts. Cleaning, alterations, restoration, replace zippers, repair of rips and holes and I don't know what all. I also buy and sell some use leathers and collect vintage WW2 and early biker leathers,







I make and repair gear for and competition bikers, horse lovers, cowboy types, street, fantasy/fetish wear and of course street wear. I have made some very unusual garments and gear as well as every day items for construction instruments and garage door openers. Do you need a purse with matching belt? Something in an exotic leather? Some thing for your lady or guy friend? Maybe some thing a bit naughty?



The selection of leather colors, thickness and finishes is extensive if not mind boggling. I will work with your leather and tanned hides. I have some pictures of my work. Gift certificates available for any amount or item.
