This handmade leather vest has lapels, a back yoke, and a zipper closure. In the pictures of them the new zippers seem so bright and a bit gaudy. That's not really the case though. I never see many vests made with zippers so I'm rather liking the feature. I do have to charge a bit more for them because of the extra work of hand sewing them in. I don't even own a sewing machine. These leather pockets also have pockets on the inside of the vest. That makes for a total of four pockets on this vest.
