Ralph Edwards Sportswear Suede Leather Cowboy Vest - Mens Medium

Twenty-year-old Dillon Wakes stepped off the Greyhound Bus in Nashville with guitar case in hand and one large duffel bag stuffed with the dreams of becoming the next big country music star. Though he was young, he'd already paid his dues playing the west Texas honky-tonks. Now he was determined to go for broke by taking on Nashville. he'd given himself six months to get signed with a record label.

The first item on his "to do" list was to get him some new duds. The few clothes he had stuffed in his bag did not say, "Successful Country Singer" but his wallet was about as dry as the west Texas plains he came from. Across street, he saw a vintage clothing store so he stowed his gear in a bus station locker and headed over to see what he could find. After browsing through the racks and racks of clothing, Dillon came across a sweet suede leather vest with faux fleece lingin--It spoke to him, literally.

"That's you cowboy." a voice came from the rack of clothes.

"What the...? Dillon said aloud, startled by the talking vest.

"You've got to buy that vest," A cute blond girl, in her early twenties said as she popped up from behind the clothing rack. "It's your look, it'll be your brand."

Five and a half months later Dillon stepped out of long black limo, wearing the suede leather vest with a record deal in hand and a blond prophetess on his arm.

Here's a comfortable (and warm), well-made, Ralph Edwards Sportswear suede leather vest with faux fleece lining. We are dating this piece to the 1960's or 70's. This tan vest has a "cowboy look" with nice double-stitch panels. The vest snaps shut with 4 brass snaps and has two side exterior pockets. This vest is a Men's Medium and is approx. 25" from the collar to the back bottom hem; armpit to armpit across the back shoulder is 19".

This vest is in very good vintage condition. We found no rips or tears and very limited signs of wear. The suede is in good condition, soft and supple and very clean. There are a few light marks and some light soiling along the pocket and arm seams but we think they add to the patina of this vintage piece--you may choose the have it cleaned. The stitching all looks good and no foul odors.
