Also pictured is Julie Grizzle of the Washington State Mounted Shooters with the vest she ordered for their cowboy shooting events. It has the two pockets that you see and also two more, accessed from the inside, in the same location. It also has the front lapels, a back yoke, and a draft flap that extends the back about 3". Below are her words after receiving it.

Hello Dave,
 OMG, I got my vest today and it's PERFECT!!!!!  Yes, it is indeed a beautiful piece of leather, and not one flaw.  Fits just right, and looks even cooler than I imagined. I absolutely love it!!!!!  Your craftsmanship is beyond compare.  Really a work of art, and just right for my cowboy mounted shooting outfit.  I can't wait to show it off next weekend at our next event. 
Many, many thanks!!!!!!!!!!

 This two tone brown moccasin cowhide leather vest has front lapels, a back pointed yoke, and front patch hip pockets (without flaps). It also has two mated inside patch pockets attached with the same braiding as these outside ones. It also has a 3" back/bottom squared off (not curved) draft flap.
 This picture of the back of the vest gives a better view of the back yoke and the draft flap.
 Here the vest is laid out on a table and gives a better look as to how the draft flap is configured.
