Rich Goldsmith purchased this black bikers leather vest with braiding from me and he sent me these pictures of himself wearing it. It was made to fit over his jacket and it has an extended back, or draft flap, and small D rings on the front for snap fasteners. Rich wrote the following nice entry to my web site guest book about it.
Dave, Thanks a bunch for crafting me a braided vest. I have been looking for a quality vest that was unique and attractive and finally found one. The braid work is incredible and the quality of leather is far above any others I have seen. I ride a motorcycle and wanted a vest that would look good and fit well over my riding jacket as well as just over a shirt, quite a tall order but one that you managed quite well. I really appreciate the way you communicated with me to get just the right style and fit. Rich Goldsmith
I took these four pictures using my computer web cam. I used them to discuss with the buyer the type of fasteners he wanted. The close ups of the fasteners also show a very good view of my braid work. Click on them to see the larger pictures.
