connecting zips

Recommended Posts

all my gear has 8 inch connecting zips eg trouser to jacket etc, however, i bought a weise jacket that has an 8 inch zip, but doesnt connect. Is there a size i can buy that would pretty much guarantee fitment to my other stuff?

my stuff has full wrap around zips, so i tend to make sure jacket and trousers are same brand..

you can get aftermarket zips to fit but would need a leather stitcher (or horse tack bod) to replace them for you..

ive got them in the tailors(ooo dont i sound posh) just now getting a tear in the trousers fixed so she said she'll try and fit a new zip so jacket/trousers zip into each other, but was just wondering if there was a common size so i can make all my jackets and trousers interchangeable

I thought thats how it was. Must have had it lucky with the stuff ive bought up until now. I've just ordered a made to measure two piece textile suit, so will keep that as my good one. I have another 2 jackets and 2 trousers 1 jacket and the both trousers are pretty big on my now tho as ive lost about a stone due to a back injury and having to give up lifting weights
