Repairs & Resizing
In addition to our made-to-measure and custom design services, Vanson also offers expert repair and resizing services. The Unit Number embossed into every garment enables us to pull up the original patterns used to make your jacket. Additionally, we track any repairs and modifications made to each garment, so we can rebuild or remake the garment at any point in time.
We will repair crash damage and replace zippers and snaps to the point where any damage becomes virtually unnoticeable. Aging and cosmetic blemishes can also be rectified using our Wash + Re-dye Service. Graphics and Logos can also be changed or replaced as desired.
We can also open up or take in your Vanson jacket if you’ve changed physically since the time you purchased your original Vanson.
While most repair and resizing work is fairly straightforward, every situation is unique and will be evaluated and priced out on an individual basis.
You can return your Vanson jacket for repair or resizing through your dealer or by sending it directly to us.

Need a Repair? Follow these three easy steps:
Down load and fill out our 'Vanson Repair Form' (contact information and what you would like repaired). If you have any other information write a note and attach it to the form. PLEASE DO NOT INCLUDE PAYMENT INFORMATION. Please include specifics, such as inches to increase and where, if you can. We will inspect garments for safety as per request.
Send your garment with your comleted 'Vanson Repair Form' to our repairs department:
Fall River, MA 02724
Wait 2-3 days from expected arrival of your garment at Vanson to be contacted with a repairs estimate and timeframe. Most repairs without pattern work take 2 weeks or less of 5 full business days. Special circumstances, significant work, pattern or graphics work, or a large influx of repairs can expand this timeframe. Please be prepared to provide payment information at time of contact for expediting the delivery of your jacket.
