This custom made Western style vest was built with top quality, long lasting, 4 ounce moccasin cowhide leather that was tanned in the USA. The lacing for the braided seams, edges, lapels, back yoke, breast pockets, hip pockets, and conchoes were all done with 1/4" wide lacing cut from the same leather as the pieces of the vest were cut from.
On my vests home page you can check out pictures of over 50 vests that I have built. After seeing the many features I can offer, folks contact me with their own ideas/designs and we discuss how I can build one for them. Each vest ends up truly being a unique, handmade, long lasting, one of a kind piece
