Larry from Hellers Cafe bought a early 1890's Levi hunting vest that has something like 80 rivets on it.... He brought it to last years inspiration show and had it hanging on one of his clothing racks for anyone who wanted to check it out.... Levi first produced hunting vests at the end of 1873.....Levi started producing blouses/jackets on February 1874.

Sansome,  is that the hunting vest that LVC reproduced in the last two years?  It had a ton of rivets in between each shotgun shell pocket.

Sell me your Mister Freedom stuff. :)

Yea I think that's the one, it should be....and I think it has the correct label.

@ mr randal - I'm sure you posted a photo of the original 1873 duck coat on sufu.  It was a photo of it in a glass fronted wooden case, taken in the foyer of the Levi's building.  Or maybe my memoriy is shot?
@Sansome/attackwithstones - I have photos of that hunting vest, the label is in the inside of the garment and the buttons had wild dogs or boar heads on them.
 
The repro vest from 2001 is rare, I've only seen three on ebay since they were made.
Here's one, shame it's a small (comes with the book too) -

^That was the duck popover, which I believe is dated later than 1873, though it looks very much the same.

That is my Duck vest up on eBay.  The vest is beautiful, and the duck is more slubby than my 1873's.  I've had it for about a year and a half.  I wish I could keep it, but since I haven't worn it yet and I quit my job a few weeks ago I need it for income.  :(

Attack, I can totally empathise with you.  No shame - happens to us all, I may also be putting a few things up for sale after chrimbo, including the duck stuff, just so's I can pay the bills :(
