handmade custom leather vest using braided seams, edges, etc. 
​ 
 All of the features about how this vest was to be built were decided by the buyer. It was built using my Black and Mahogany leather. It has front and back pointed yokes, two hip pockets with flaps, one breast pocket - all of which also have inside pockets - that makes for 6 pockets. The back of it has a 3" draft flap. The D rings (attached with braiding) are for a closures that the buyer had.

 I encourage you to read my guest book to see what others have said about the leathers they have purchased from me.

 As I recall, this guy was very explicit about how he wanted his vest built - I double checked each question/answer. The brown and black leathers are both moccasin cowhide. The vest features front pointed yokes and a back pointed yoke. It has one (credit card size) breast pocket and two patch hip pockets with flaps - those hip pockets also have mated inside pockets (without flaps). It has the curved back draft flap and four D rings mounted for his closures.

  A customer/friend/musician of mine has a vest something like this - only one that's made with just a single color. On his, he chose to have the yokes be suede side out. Then, once in a while he'd wear the vest inside out. He told me that and said "Ya know what? - I'd wear it inside out and I still had the nicest vest in the house"
