Ebay vests (really good)

Post by Godfather »

This one is ending on 10/16, check out the pointed pockets, I guess charloots fixed them.  Looking real good:

This one is claiming to be identical to the movie vest, and it is pretty darn close:

Charloot's does look good, just too bad he is still using those crappy A-1 patches.

Know what you mean.  I head to put a few hours in to modify mine.  One thing ive noticed; the name of the current bidder, J***i.  Ive seen that name a few times before.  Isn't that the guy thats had the warriorcleon cloned mondotees mk 2 patches for sale on ebay a few months back?  If it is, then I wouldnt be surprised if we see that charloots vest get resold with a new warbird and a higher price.

On the vest in the second link; I'd just like to state that despite the simular user name, that is definatly NOT me.  It looks like the piping has been taken off an A1 vest (look at the dots between the diamonds) and added onto a vest from a store.  Ive worn leather vests since the early ninties, and in my personal experiance, the more "v" shaped the angle of the cut (when laid flat), the more baggy and loose fitting it is around the arm pits.  As a replica vest, it looks OKish, but I personally prefer a vest thats made from 4 large sections and shows less stitching.  Its not a bad purchase though and its got a decent set of patches.

All the patches are the same size, but the vests are not.  The rocker will be closer to the arm trim on a smaller size vest.  These are definatly the same as A1 as they come from the same manufacturer.  Winning bid was $350, which is less than some of his starting bids.
