10021829 - Rio Grande vest, handwoven wool with lining-Rio Grande Vest

This style of vest draws from the oldest part of our weaving tradition, the Rio Grande striped blanket. The strong vertical lines of these vests are the defining design elements. This vest has rainbow stripes of grays and natural included in its design. Our nickel buttons are cast copies of the old indian head/buffalo nickels, because buttons made from the real nickels are hard for us to get anymore. The vest is a size 38 and has the following measurements: Chest measurement = 22 inches (44 inches), shoulder measurement= 15.5 inches, regular cut length=24 inches, Flat bottom length 26 inches
