  1. Best looking best I have ever seen 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Apr 19th 2018

    Fit, finish and materials better than I ever could have imagined. I had ordered a custom elk vest in the full one piece back with every intention of using it as my club vest. Upon receiving the garment, it is so stunning, I don't have the heart to ruin such a beautiful piece of leather. I will be ordering another in standard leather or possibly buffalo to use as a club vest. Well done Fox Creek Leather keep up the good work and impeccable quality.

  2. Custom leather vest is awesome! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Dec 17th 2017

    Being a former Fox Creek customer, I came across their build a vest program on their website, and figured "how cool...why not?" I ordered a tobacco buffalo leather vest with a red liner and buffalo nickel snaps. It is the coolest article of clothing I own, hands down. High quality leather and workmanship, and of course it's made in the USA.

  3. Quality made to measure vest 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jun 26th 2017

    Beautiful leather, love it. Looks like it is built to last so i will have it for many years to come. I wanted a black one, but messed up on the order and have a Buffalo Saddle colour. I think that it is brilliant and is so much different to everyone else's black.

  7. Excellent Product and Service 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Nov 20th 2016

    I have just received my second "Build Your Own Vest" order and both were well made and fit perfectly. The recommendation to send out a stock item for fitting adjustments should be done. The return mailing of stock items was easy and the product was sent faster than promised. Customer service was helpful and knowledgable. I would highly recommend this product.

  8. Top Notch Vest 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 21st 2015

    I have been wanting a vest for a while and even bought one off the rack at a bike show but in the end was very dissatisfied with it. A friend from my forum recommended Fox Creek Leather so I took a look. I was amazed to see the many different styles and had a hard time deciding but eventually decided on the build your own.
    I was able to choose all that I wanted and any questions I had were answered to my full satisfaction. I selected all the options I wanted and placed the order and received my vest as promised. I was amazed at the quality of this vest, the fit and finish was far more than I was expecting. I had no idea that leather could be so supple yet so strong at the same time. I have worn it a few times since getting it 3 days ago and have had numerous comments on how good it looks.
    I like knowing that the leather is from the USA and that the vest is also made in America and not farmed out to a third world country. The fact that Fox Creek Leather also provides a lifetime guarantee only adds to knowledge of a quality product from a company that stands behind what they make and sell. I can state without any reservations that Fox Creek Leather has found yet another lifetime customer.

  9. Great Vest 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Dec 14th 2014

    I got my new vest and love everything about it except that I don't have a jacket to go with it. I think I'll remedy that this week.
    I wore the vest on the bike for the first time today (I've had it a few days) and went to a memorial service for a friend, somber occasion, I had 3 different people comment about the "sharp looking vest". Great look, feel and quality, love the red lining.
