  1. 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.
