A Custom Buffalo Hide Vest

  A Buffalo hide vest is an unusual request, being that this is NYC and I don’t think there are too many buffalo hunters here! Our gentleman came to us with his own hide, which we were able to accommodate, even though it was tanned for use as a rug. It’s not the ideal finish …

It takes its inspiration from the classic 1950’s trapeze silhouette with bracelet length sleeves, but I’ve updated it with the sporty details of a zip front and rib-trim.
