The fit and seam orientation was drawn from original "trucker" style jackets made in the 1970's and 80's. The length is a true "waist cut", designed to fall just at or below the belt. The shoulders are narrower and the vest tapers 2-3" from the chest to the bottom and the back. Two tack buttons on each side with an adjuster loop. There is an optional "Tall Cut" as well that will add 2" to the length of the vest.
Made from our exclusive and best-selling, American Bison leather in our distressed "INDY" finish. Our "Indy" Bison was first introduced in late 2021 and has become one of our most popular and best selling vest leathers. The rugged & tough American bison leather has a "worn-in" vintage look and feel. The hides are a full 3-3.5 oz. weight, slightly heavier than most garment leathers, but not as thick as it looks. The deep distressed tannage is everything we love about American bison leather. The natural, bold grain, heavy waxes and healed battle scars set this leather apart. They are a little heavier & stiffer than our traditional bison leather, but it won't last. Wear the leather like a new pair of western boots and you will feel it soften and mold to your body in days. A unique leather and an exclusive design that you won't find anywhere else.
AMERICAN "INDY"BISON | Tanned In Milwaukee, WI
Because this is a true and genuine American Bison leather, expect to see healed battle scars, scratches and other marks that that are not only natural but add to the character of the jacket. The bison tannage has a fair amount of waxes, so expect the jacket to feel firm and stiff for a week or two of use. When the waxes start to break-down and distribute throughout the jacket, it will be softer and become more pliable.
