This custom and handmade leather vest was made in the USA with moccasin cowhide that was tanned in the USA. All of it's features were decided by the buyer. Those features are front split yokes, a back pointed yoke, two patch hip pockets, and conchoes that I fashioned to hang straps from.

  Bob Peel of Mongomery, Texas ordered this vest and wrote in my guest book: "This guy is GOOD. The vest he made for me is really fine. Dave worked with me and made just what I wanted and I didn't even know what I wanted. I can't pronounce the name of the town Dave lives in but he would certainly be welcome in Texas. Thanx Dave for a job well done. Later, Bob"
 Bob's email to me after receiving the vest included:

" Hi Dave,
  I got the vest today and all I can say is just FANTASTIC.  I Hope you don't put this one on your website because I think it is probably a one of a kind...If you show it everybody will want one....Just kidding.   Wonderful job. You are truly an artist at this kind of work. I know you are proud of your work and you certainly should be.  I want to thank you again for your patience and suggestions. It really turned out great. I hope to do business again.  Sincerely, Bob Peel " 

 I think anybody liking this vest can think of a big enough change to make to it to satisfy this one still being a one of a kind vest. ...Dave
