    Been looking around and I can't find the right fabric.



    Can anyone link some fabrics that would be appropriate?

    I don't have any links unfortunately, however I can share some small information with you regarding the material . It should be white and have a feel like canvass Click image for larger version.

    Nobody's yet found the "right" fabric for the vest as of yet, sadly enough. Tackle twill is a popular choice due to it's sheen and weave, but its far too stiff and heavy to achieve the correct look. Plus there's evidence that some vests were made of different fabric than others.
