leather vest with a zipper closure
 This black leather vest had slit pockets and a large brass (YKK #10) zipper. It has a back pointed yoke and unlike the majority of my vest, the bottom is squared off around its whole length. I probably added a zipper pullafter the picture was taken.
The braided leather vest pictured below is made with moccasin cowhide leather and has a large brass zipper closure (YKK zipper - size #10). It was built using a pattern made from a vest that the customer sent me. It seems to me that the zipper is more hidden than it appears in this picture. The slit pockets on it can be made any size (width/heigth) that a buyer would like.
