Double Lapel Charlatan Vest

To continue some more show and tell of this new collection, today I have the Double Lapel Charlatan Vest from my new collection, American Dreaming.  Available in this beautifully textured raw silk, this is a style I have been aiming to perfect for years now, and am pleased to offer this finished version to you all by way of this collection.  Here’s a bit more history and backstory on the design and its inception:

Clad in clothing of the late 19th and early 20th century, San Francisco rockers, The Charlatans, were innovative in their music and their carefully-studied dress. As a counterpoint to Janis Joplin’s stylized acid-rock Victoriana, the Charlatans gave it straight up. This vest is made for today’s man who breaks from expectation; his knowledge of history and style can only serve the future world.
