Adore this vest! Can't wait for winter to come! I live in Southern California that's how much I hate winter but this vest has changed my mind. The workmanship on the vest is perfection in itself. This is my 2nd item from this shop but it won't be my last!

This seller was so wonderful to work with. We went through a number of convos on this coat and she got right back to me every single time answering my constant queries with grace and aplomb as well as a dash of humor. The minute I got my financial act together she mailed me the coat! I have also purchased a vest from this shop and as soon as I can save up some more dough I will be back to purchase more. Nothing says "Positive Feedback" like the Repeat Customer I am!!
One-of-a-kind pieces with a story.
We all have a story - so do the things we acquire.
People shouldn't be reproductions of one another - its boring.
People should look like individuals, because they are.
People should be treated like individuals, because they are.
Products should be given a second chance, just like people. Sometimes they might need a third or fourth chance too and that's ok. Just because something needs a new coat of paint, doesn't make it garbage. Maybe if we looked at our junk in a creative way, we might find that we can rely more on the things we've already made. After all, there's nothing more sustainable than those things that already exist. At coppeRivet, our product line is based on extending the life of a product through craftsmanship and innovation, often changing how that product functions in society.
By upcycling discarded goods in a creative and artisanal manner, we provide products that aren't mass produced and express individuality. Our product has a real story and a rich history,
which can't be manufactured.
Each item is one of a kind, just like our customers - just like us.

Note that size of our items can vary given the nature of working with vintage and discarded materials. We make sure to provide you with a size "estimate," but also provide EXACT MEASUREMENTS of each item listed. PLEASE be sure to check these measurements before placing your order to ensure that the item you are purchasing will fit you or the person receiving this gift. We do not accept exchanges/returns due to an item not fitting - all measurements given on the listing are accurate.
HOW WE TAKE OUR MEASUREMENTS:
1. RISE: The "rise" of a jeans is determined by the distance between the crotch, up the zipper, to the center of the button at the waist. The rise is usually around 12 inches on classic pants. In comparison, the average measurement of low-rise jeans is roughly 8 inches, with some as little as 3-4 inches.
2. INSEAM: To measure "inseam", take a pair of jeans and fold them in half. Using measuring tape, measure from just below the crotch to the hem/bottom of the pant.
3. WAIST: The easiest way to measure the "waist" on a pair of jeans is hold the pants flat and stretch the tape measure from one side of the inside waistband to the other side. Don't stretch the pants!!! Then double this number- example 12" across = 24" waist.
1. CHEST: To measure the chest of a jacket that fits you well, lay it on a clean flat surface and button it. If it is a two or three button jacket button the second button (from the bottom) only. If it is double breasted button it completely. Measure under arms as shown in picture one in the following link (http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/Tutorials/AndrewHarrisEBayMeasurement.htm). Your measurement x2 is the total chest measurement indicated in our listing.
2. WAIST: The waist of the jacket is usually found at the second button (from the bottom.) The waist measurement is usually 2-4” smaller than the chest measurement.
3. SHOULDER WIDTH: Measurement is taken from shoulder seam to shoulder seam at the widest point when the jacket is flat front down.
4. LENGTH: On the back of the jacket, this is the bottom of the collar to the bottom of the coat.
5. SLEEVE LENGTH: Measurement taken from the top of the sleeve at the shoulder seam to the middle of the end of the sleeve. Often the sleeve is cut on a slant so make sure to measure in a straight line down the center of the sleeve.
