These three two toned vests were all bought by the same guy for his bartender employees. They all have split lapels, pointed yokes on the back, as well as, the four pockets done with a simple braid. All of my work is made in the USA using leather tanned in the USA

 custom, handmade two tone brown leather vests 

 These vests are completely braided with leather - no other materials are used on it. The 1/4" laces used on them were cut from the same leather that the parts of the vests were cut from. The seams, edges, lapels, back yokes, and pockets are all done with the leather braiding of moccasin cowhide. This high quality, full grain leather is about 4 oz. thick and makes for a strong, long lasting garment. 

  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, although, these three are more similar than any of the others - a guy ordered them for his bar tenders. 
 After seeing the many features I 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.
