The American Bison is a free-range, roaming animal known to fight within their herds.  Scarring, natural marks and grain variations are common and prevalent, making each and every hide truly unique.


30-Years Of Vest Making

In the Summer of 1989 we designed and build our first leather (CCW) concealed-carry wear vest. It was classic black motorcycle vest that was common in the 80’s built with internal CCW pockets, something not so easy to find back then.

Today, we still design & build a complete collection of men’s leather vests from premium leathers, quality brass YKK zippers and custom sourced snaps, all with internal CCW pockets

We design all of our vests & jackets in our California Leather Shop and built them in our own custom leather shop in Mexico,  where generations of leather crafting knowledge has been passed down. Our craftsmen here work only on outerwear and nothing else. Each vest cut by hand from the finest quality hides from around the world.  We hand-set snap holes, skive edges & pride ourselves on designing functional and timeless vest designs.

A Coronado Vest is cut 2” larger in the upper chest circumference than the labeled size.  For example, a size 44” vest is cut to be 46” around the upper chest (actual measurement). This measurement is taken at the bottom of the arm hole. Generally speaking, you should order 1-2” larger than your “upper chest” measurement.  

If you prefer a longer-body, our Tall Cut vests are cut 1-½” longer in the body.  All other measurements are exactly the same
