It's about time for a vest thread

It's fair to say I'm a RRL fanboy. The stuff is heavily overpriced but I just love the style.

First up are two basic waistcoats. I wear them a lot when going to the office, paired with a pair of raw denim jeans and a dress shirt.

The next one is quite a statement piece. Limited edition, hand painted native American style waistcoat.

I really like the striping on the first waistcoat. It's not in your face, but it does a lot to add visual interest IMO. Of course, the Native American piece is a stunner for sure!

This one is pretty cool, is it custom? How can I get my hands on something like this?

Thanks. Yes, custom. The X150 (black) and octagon leather no longer are available. Plenty of similar options.

You can call Vanson but I noticed you are in SF. I’d walk into JL (Johnson Leathers) with this picture, or whatever you want, and work it out with them. Vanson definitely can do it too and they are great. Pricing should be similar.

Thank you, yes I’m already becoming a regular at JL. I’ll ask them next time. I’m thinking it would be great to have this vest in redwood bainbridge and teacore shinki. Or maybe I’m asking too much :)

Never too much. Never. That sounds cool.

I did explore a Shinki Vanson jacket (J-82) years ago. I almost went with a cool gray. Shoulda done it as I doubt it is possible now. Good old Constantine.
