This two tone brown, custom and handmade vest was built using braided leather construction of top quality, full grain cowhide. The 1/4" wide laces for the seams, edges, lapels, back yoke, pockets, etc. were cut from the same kind of leather that the parts of the vest were cut from.
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.
