brown leather vest made with braided seams and edges
This vest was built using top quality, full grain moccasin cowhide. The braided seams, edges, and pocket tops were done with 1/4" wide lacing cut from the same kind of leather that the parts of the vest were cut from. All of the features of it were decided by the buyer. It has a large (#10) YKK brass zipper that is hand sewn with 5 ply nylon thread. It's pockets are made using the same leather and they are very durable
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.
