    Just received the vest I ordered. Elk skin vintage vest. Wow! It is way beyond my expectations, soft and supple and the fit is great. Can’t wait to wear it. What great craftsmanship! Thanks Fox Creek for a great product!

  2. Custom Elkskin vest 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Apr 15th 2018

    I ordered a pair of elkskin chaps and matching vintage vest, and I could not be happier with my purchase. The quality, workmanship, leather- all are perfect. Will certainly be purchasing from Fox Creek again in the future!

  3. My build your own vest 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 19th 2018

    I just purchased a Tobacco suede vest in elkskin. I`ve never seen any vest that even comes close to matching the quality of this vest. I`m only 5-4, so I always need alterations, no problem Fox Creek always comes thru.

  4. Custom Elk Vest 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 15th 2018

    I didn't initially think I would go Build-Your-Own on a vest, but what the only go around once, right? I ordered a Vintage model made with elk leather, mercury dime snaps along with some custom fitting. My vest IS essentially perfect for me. The stitching is faultless, and I love the unique characteristics of the elk leather. The fit is exact...I couldn't ask for better. There is no compromise in the leather; this is a thick but supple vest. It feels substantial, and not like some average vests which are mainly for looks only. This vest will out-live me and someone else will enjoy it eventually. Thank you Fox Creek!

  5. Where do I start! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Dec 6th 2017

    The quality of Fox Creek Leather is just so over the top of other high priced leather companies out there that it's no comparison! Then the equality of workmanship... holy moly!! You know it's American made! Do I need to say more??!! And now to the customer service... you'd think that these folks were your nebor! They make 110% sure your getting what you ordered and they make darn sure your custom made leathers are "exactly" what you want!! You ain't going to get better, friendlier, professional attention to detail than Fox Creek Leather! I'd bet my pay check on that!!

    First rate in all ways. I really like this vest and the choices I made (buffalo leather, Indian head snaps, side laces, full back). Highly recommended.

  8. Quality 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Dec 28th 2016

    I rarely write reviews but I am so pleased with my vest that I feel the need to say so.
    Ordering the vest from their website was easy. I got exactly what I wanted. The vest was sent to me in a short amount of time. I expected a quality product and I was not disappointed in any way. The look, fit and feel of the vest is fantastic. I will be a repeat customer.

  9. Elkskin vest 5 Star Review

    Best fitting vest I ever owned. Custom made and shipped in 3 days. Fits perfectly. Gun pocket is a bonus.

  10. American Quality 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Aug 16th 2015

    I ordered this custom made vest in October 2014. The quality and craftsmanship was excellent. The seams, the supple leather, the Indian Head Nickels, and the beautiful Blue Liner far exceeded my expectations. I have had many import vests that I thought were sufficient for riding, but this vest is spectacular. Frankly, I took great joy when joining my riding group and opening my vest to show the beautiful Blue Liner.

    Unfortunately for me, in a moment of stupidity, I had patches sewn on the vest. In June 2015 I removed the patches only to have visible holes left from the stitching. I contacted Fox Creek Leather and requested their assistance in repairing the damage I had done to the vest. Fox Creek replaced the panels in the vest, replaced the liner, and returned the vest within a week and did so at an incredibly reasonable price Again, upon inspection of the repaired vest I found the workmanship to be excellent. I had the same pride and excitement that I experienced when I first received the vest on my initial order. Fox Creek Leather is not just a manufacturer of leather goods, they are truly artists in the creation of leather goods. Fox Creek Customer Service is the best.
