 western style vest - built with braided leather 
 All of the seams, edges, and pockets (and flaps) of this vest are built with a western style of braided leather. The 1/4" wide laces were cut from the same leather that the parts of the vest were cut from. This 4 oz. top quality, full grain moccasin leather is thicker than what most vests are made with ...making for a rugged 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. 

 I'm not sure why this vest looks so shiny here - the leather has no finish, but then again, I know what little lighting that I have. home page of Anderson Leather Braiding
