The seams, edges, lapels, and pockets of this vest were all braided with 1/4" wide lacing cut from the same material that the vests parts were cut from = top quality, full grain moccasin cowhide. It's soft and thicker than the garment material that most vests are built with ...making for a durable, 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. 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.
