Leather vests

I’m looking to get a leather vest some like this

https://www.jpcycles.com/product/175...k-leather-vest

Does anybody here wear a leather vest? If so which brand and style. And is there a certain leather to get and/or one to stay away from?

Not sure who makes good vest and who makes crap to be honest.

Chris,

The best leather vests that I have ever owned were always Milwaukee Leather Brand. We have a local leather shop that sells the Milwaukee Brand.

The Harley shop also has really good leather but it is awfully pricey .

Leather can get pricy but for the most part you get what you pay for. I have a Fox Creek leather. Expensive but worth it. They have a web site

First manufacturing makes good stuff. I have one of their jackets. They own their own tannery. Check out some reviews online.

My jackets and vests are made by Fox Creek.
Very well made and made in the USA too.


Very satisfied with the quality and workmanship.

I have a Confederate Flag on the back of my vest and I ain't dead yet.

Thanks to all for the input. I’ve got some research to do now. I would like to go try some on to see what size is best before I place an online order. I’ll wear it over a t shirt while hot out and over a flannel when cooler. During the colder months I’ll just wear my leather jacket no vest.
