This is for a custom made cowboy or western style vest in a suiting fabric. Old West Victorian style waistcoat in a nice striped suiting fabric. This is another style of vest worn by the cowboy during the time period.
Because of the lack of pockets in shirts and pants, a vest gave the cowboy extra storage space for a watch, tobacco, a sweetheart's photo, and money. Usually made of canvas or wool, it gave an extra layer of warmth in the winter. It also provided a much needed barrier for dust when riding and protection from branches as they worked their herds.
This particular style vest is called the "Laredo Vest". It is made from a nice suiting fabric. You can either have striped or solid suiting fabric. Lining will be in a solid color.
Vest is cut straight across the bottom as was the style very often seen during the time period. It is fully lined with a coordinating solid satin or satin acetate (lightweight lining) fabric. It has 2 working pockets on the vest and buttons up the front with metal dungaree buttons. There is a adjustable belt in the back for vest fitting.
The lapel on this vest is "laid on" meaning it is not a full collar but only has lapels in the front. It is made from a coordinating solid color in canvas or twill.
Because this is a custom made vest in your size and color choice, I will need 10-14 days to complete your vest before shipping to you after order and payment. If you have any questions, please email me and I will happily get back to you.
