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.
