Hello Zammers and TDH at large!
I'm working on the Zam vest right now, had a few technical questions for those who have completed the vest...
Looks like from the pictures (especially ref picture DSC04219), that there is leather behind the lacing on the sides of the vest. Gauging from the wear line vertically on the front vest piece, and the seams attaching leather to the edges of the sides of the vest, it's a pocket flap (terms failing me here).
Like a big fold, with the lacing on top. Unlaced, it would allow the vest to expand (theoretically, although it's zipped shut). The flap is stitched, probably, to each edge of those sides visible in that picture (front and back left side).
Any thoughts? Anyone make it this way? I'll go ahead and mock it up like that and see how it looks.
Also, how did Zammers finish the neck, especially in the back? Did you do a high neck? The hood covers it.
Any measurements on how far up those shoulder foldover thingies go?
And one last question... any favorite sources for lacing and the copper-colored grommets on the sides?
Thanks! I'm using orthotic cow leather, white, seems to be the right weight and it is very cheap (as leather goes, anyway). It's split.
