Client purchased an FXR Boost X Jacket, but wanted some extra modifications. Client mailed in his alterations to have an extra zipper placed into the sleeve to keep some extra money on the go.
- Addition of Goretex/ waterproof material to create a 6×4 inch pocket with a custom zipper for around 3” inches.
Prior to getting this piece altered we needed to help the client acknowledge that with the FXR brand embroidered on the jacket there is always a possibility for this portion to get covered up. As from a pricing aspect it is normally more expensive to open up the layers between the jacket and the lining as an option to ensure that materials are able to shift around.
