Hollywood western vest

http://www.ebay.com/itm/272056614898

This vintage vest was made in the early part of the 20th century from a mustard colored corduroy, with a buckle back, four pocket front, piped edges and lapels.  At some point it found its way into Hollywood wardrobe.  The plaid overcheck of the corduroy looks to have been airbrushed on at that point in its life. This was used in various westerns over the years, and remained in Warner Brothers’s costume house until fairly recently, as evidenced by their modern style label with bar code.

Chest (pit to pit): 18″ (doubled = 36″)
Length (back): 21″
