Reconstructed vintage hunter's vest / one-off / large


This is the best vest ever. A true one of a kind.

This was purchased at a yard sale here in Maine. It was just a dirty shell and pretty shabby with a seriously broken zipper and some holes, but structurally very sound and I could see it's beauty. By the looks of it, I imagine this vest was made by a loving housewife for her husband so he would be visible while mowing the lawn or hunting. 

I spent about an hour and a half cleaning paint off of it, trimming frayed edges, completely removed the zipper and replaced it with a very heavy duty brass one, and patched up some bad spots.

It's sized to be roughly a men's large to extra large. Exact measurements are 44" around the torso, 26" length in front and a 29" length in back. Has two large front square pockets. The pocket on the front right side has a patch on the exterior that is a mismatch plaid, and a patch inside on the same spot. It has a medium weight red plaid flannel exterior and a medium to heavyweight tweed style lining, with a middle layer of insulation.

The item photographed is the exact item you will receive.
