elkskin leather vests 
 The guy who ordered this vest had his own elk skin that he wanted to use. As I did with this vest, I suggest is that I use my regular moccasin cowhide leather for the laces. It is much stronger than elk skin lacing would be and makes the vest stronger in just the right places - the seams and edges. It is built with my braided construction, has a shawl collar, two outside pockets, and two inside pockets (same location). 
 This custom leather vest was fashioned after a vest that the buyer sent me. He also sent me the Elk skin to make it with. I decided to use my moccasin cowhide laces as that would make for a stronger vest. It has a shawl collar, two low hip pockets with two more matching hip pockets on the inside (four pockets in total).
