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.

Another enduring Vanson classic – our good-looking, beautifully-made Snap-Front Vest features two front pockets and lace-up sides for an adjustable fit. The VLS is meticulously hand-crafted with a man's formal dress construction in the way the backs and fronts are joined at the shoulder. Look closely and you’ll see that all the connection points are perfectly joined and top-stitched, open and flat for a low bulk, smooth fit over the shoulders. You’ll also see how the sides are turned and faced evenly – so the lining is smoothly set into the vest and the brass side-lacing grommets are neatly set away from the lining in two reinforced layers of leather. Rawhide laces give a cowboy flair and enable a perfectly snug fit.  The two single-welted front pockets show the classic heritage of this vest. Available in either competition-weight cowhide or medium-weight Firenze leather. This is a dress vest gone riding and can be worn anywhere.

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.
