Most authentic vest?

Post by carpocratian »

What is the most authentic Warriors vest being produced, officially licensed or not? What is the best place to find it?

Thanks!

The best ones all come from the same company in Pakistan.
Personally, I would opt for Charlloots aka Straightfromconey, as his come with a better warbird and can do custom alteration and vintaging if requested.

Gotta agree with Ninth on this, Charloots is who I'd go with, his vests really look the part especially when customised.

If that fails, you could always mod this vest:

I like the way this rocker looks. I have always said that the rocker looks (I know it might not be but it looks like) to be a canvas back with red embroidery. All you would have to do is "tea stain" the rocker.

The war-bird looks decent. Again I would "vintage" it (tea stain, dirt and run it over with a car a couple of times).

The black piping needs to be modded too. It looks to be missing the circle punches.

The actual vest I do not know what it looks like in person. I do not know if it is leather, pleather or some other material. It looks to be the correct color. I would "vintage" it (tea stain, dirt and run it over with a car a couple of times).

I have no affiliation with the seller but if I was to start on a vest this would be one I would start with. Plus as I have said before it is more fun to mod a costume replica as it becomes yours, one of a kind and the costumes for the flick were hand made.

I think it says Polyurethane on the label. Hope that helps?
