Default Custom leathers Made to Measure....Any Recommendations

Hi Guys, Anyone here had a good experience ordering a new set of leathers from the U.K. or anywhere really.. I could do with getting some new gear and not having any luck with anything off the peg here.... I had a negative experience with Scott Leathers in the past.... so not keen to go that route....admittedly a number of years ago....maybe they have improved since...

4SR through Cotters.
Custom made race leathers are savage and body armour is top notch too.

BKS leathers. Absolutely top notch, but pricey.
