black western style leather vest custom built with leather braiding 
​ This vest was built with high quality, full grain moccasin cowhide. The seams, edges, back yoke, pockets, etc. are all braided with 1/4" wide laces cut from the same leather that the vest parts were cut from. It has four braided leather conchoes, with long straps hanging from them, on the front. And, (what I call) a 3" 'draft flap' across the back/bottom. 
  Over the last 40 years, I've custom built hundreds of vests - you can see over 50 of them on my vests home page. While they are all braided, that's pretty much where their similarities end. After seeing the many features I can offer, folks contact me with their own ideas/designs and we discuss how I should build one for them. Each vest ends up truly being a unique, handmade, long lasting, one of a kind piece.

This custom, handmade moccasin cowhide leather vest was made in the USA using leather that was tanned in the USA. It features front lapels, a pointed back yoke, two patch hip pockets with flaps, and some straps that hang from some braided leather conchoes that I fashioned.
 This picture offers a view of the back yoke and the 3" draft flap extension it has on the lower back.
 This picture is of the pocket (with flap). The vest also has pockets on the inside in these same locations (without flaps).
