broken leather buckle attachment tab/loop - buckle boots

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a buckle boot that unfortunately has a broken leather attachment tab/loop. The rest of the boot is in great unworn condition so the damage is kind of troubling me. I'm desperately looking for a solution, I've thought about having them repaired locally but am afraid they will  use the wrong thread, leather, and so on.

I'm thinking about repairing the buckle attachment myself at home with a heavy duty sewing machine but can't seem  to find a good reproduction leather tab anywhere. I could drill out the rivet which is rusty anyway, and sew on a new tab. 

Would this be possible, and if so, does anyone know an address?

Thanks!
