Again: Circle A Brand

I was so happy with my last custom vest by Circle A Brand, aka Russell of http://russellsshirts.blogspot.com, I asked Russell to create a vest that I had originally designed in a painting.  I cleaned it up in the sketch below and sent it to Russell, what I got back was better than I ever expected! Russell really put a lot of work into and fine tuned the design adding his own touches. 

The Miner's Vest

Made of Cone Mills selvedge canvas, black corozo buttons, hand-set copper rivets, 
and a two-prong buckle.

Constructed using vintage sewing machines from 1920's and 1940's.

As you can see in the photos the color of the canvas seems to change from a greenish brown in low light to a beautiful ochre in bright sun light. 

My favorite selvedge ticking details.
