Hi guys,
Although my main persona is almost exclusively devoted to mentalism, since having children I've been remembering how to do general magic and the escapes I learned many moons ago.

Although I had a supplier locally all those years ago, it seems the internet has taken them all the main locals to the ground.

I'm trying to source a good quality leather Tom Horn Transport belt and I'm even having trouble with finding a good ungimmicked heavy straight jacket. This is one of the times when good old google is failing me. In the last few months I've made my local hardware store richer by making my own props, but for straight jacket and transport belt I'd prefer not to make my own.

Any ideas of where I might find good quality, stage-worthy supplier anywhere in the world?

Cheers,

Daeld

I think Jay Leslie was making Tom Horne belts and may have dusted off his straitjacket sewing machine.

Brilliant, thank you so much for that. I don't know how I managed to miss his site during my searches. Thanks again.

Sorry. Not in the US. Jay Lesley has very kindly taken on my case for a custom build. Thanks for your help.

Where are you? I am sure the person who sent me a message ships outside USA. But if you've gone to Jay you have gone the sensible route - a professional at heart with great customer service and a full support system!!

Thank you for your interest. I'm in Australia. I searched for a while trying to find reputable suppliers. Jay has been wonderful and has me sorted for a Tom Horn belt and a jacket; an absolute professional.

However, it might be helpful for others to know what is around in different part of the world. So please do tell.

As for my needs, they were quite specific and Jay has been perfect.

One of the best ever EA equipment makers is in your neck of the woods. Well Australia. Neck of the woods sounds local. Australia is a big place from my understanding.

in truth there are not many places to go to. Jay is awesome though! That's 5% added to all of my future bills right Jay? Like you said? You would give me a good deal if I "bigged" you up? I jest we have no agreement but he has been excellent to me.

Ken Dean in the UK knows a couple of people who can get work done for people. But mainly in the UK. The other place if Richard Sherrie in Canada. There may be a few others here and there too. But none that spring to mind.
