The first vest that Vanson ever made was a button-front Hippie-style vest - which turned out to be a great way to learn how not to build a vest.  These early vests had lumps at the shoulders where the front and back were joined together, and the linings and grommets looked as though the primary production tool was an Uzi.  But this is how we all learn, by doing, and by realizing that there is a lot more to a “simple” vest than meets the eye.

Vanson’s classic Zip-Front Leather Vest is stylishly fitted and presented in true chest sizes from 32 to 62. The Vanson vests are beautifully sewn with a man's formal dress construction in the way the backs and fronts are joined at the shoulder.  Look closely and you will see that the connection points are perfectly matched and top-stitched open and flat for a comfortable, low bulk, smooth fit over the shoulders. You will also see that this vest is fully finished so the lining is smoothly set into the vest with no raw edges showing. Two front pockets, solid brass front zipper, and a lightweight rayon lining complement this classic design. Available in either competition-weight cowhide or medium-weight Firenze leather. This vest is hand made, great looking, and a throwback to the waistcoats of a more formal time.

BLACK FIRENZE - MEDIUM WEIGHT LEATHER ( 1.2 mm )
Selected skins are gently tumbled for extra softness
and a slight pebble look. Milling brings the grain up
making the natural markings a little more pronounced.
Garments made of this leather will require very little
breaking-in time as the leather is soft and supple right
away.
