Recommendation for leather alterations?

The cuffs of my Dainese W-Frame suit is about 3/4 inch too long. Never been an issue with any of my previous gloves, but I just got a pair of Five RFX race gloves (ammmazing), and under full gas condition when I tilt my wrist, the suit is pushing the gloves off my hand because of the cuffs/sleeves are long.

If anyone in LA has ever dealt with having their leathers altered and can recommend a competent taylor or leather smith, I would greatly appreciate any suggestions.

It's just the cuff, not a high stress / structural area, so I'm not worried too much about safety, but because this is my favorite suit and is no longer in production, just want to make sure they don't fudge it up.

Thanks in advance!

I would also say Anthony’s. They’re the ones that the D-Store Orange County uses for their clients repairs. I’ve taken several items to them, from boots, to Leathers, to gloves, been happy with their service.
