Default Zipping up different brand gear

Have a leather alpinestars jocks and rst pants, obviously they don't zip up and I'd rather not spend €300-500 to get the matching pants. Anyone know a good place where I could get a zipper done to match so they can zip up.

Donnelly leathers on Harcourt street will do a deadly job on that for you!

any money spent is worth it to be able to zip up the jock and pants, wouldn't do to get done for indecent exposure.

There's a tailor on main street Swords who can do this - I called them a while back but haven't had it done yet.

FYI, I learned recently that Alpinestars & Dainese waist zips match. And that most other brands seem to use the same zip - e.g. Modeka, Buffalo & RST seem to match.

Never thought of going to a tailor to get it done, would have saved a fortune.
