Out West Wabash Vest
If you start out from Philly and pay attention as the landscape changes (suddenly, everything is vast). Barbed wire—or “thorny wire” as Lucien Smith, who made the first prototype, called it—is a rare sight.
You begin to notice this vest on a robust cast of characters, from bankers to rakes (and ones who are both). From cowboys to sheriffs. You take note.
A trim but substantial layer between shirt and coat. Pockets for a watch, a train ticket. For the photo of the one you had to leave behind.
Maybe your next big move is a general store in Bannack or a mining claim in Virginia City.
This vest speaks the language. Strikes out on its own.
The Out West Wabash Vest (No. 7015). Interesting indigo with dressy western charm. In traditional indigo Wabash Stripe or true indigo ombre jacquard woven in Japan. Wabash stripe is a 100% cotton blend chambray. Seven Western-style engraved buttons at center front. Back belt buckles. Vintage style 4 pocket waistcoat.
