brown leather vest built for rugged use 

 Built with leather braiding, this western style vest was handmade with top quality, full grain moccasin cowhide. The seams, edges, and pockets were all braided using 1/4" wide lacing cut from the same leather as the parts of the vest were cut from. It has two slit hip pockets, a large (YKK #10) brass zipper, and a 3" draft flap on the back/bottom of it.That draft flap can be seen better in pictures of other vests that have it - I've built these draft flaps with several different curves across the bottom. 
  Over the last 40 years, I've custom built hundreds of vests - you can see over 50 of them on my vest's 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 Brown leather vest, whose seams and edges are completely braided. It has two slit hip pockets, a brass (YKK #10) zipper closure, and what I call a draft flap at the bottom of the back.
 The back/bottom of this vest has what I call a draft flap which have become fairly popular with my customers. The first request for it was a guy who wanted the back of his vest longer so his back wouldn't get drafty cold sitting in his pick-up during the long Winters. Since then, bikers have come to also like them as a bit of a wind break on the back. In fact, I've now come to make them with several different curves across the bottom.
