    Looking for faux leather or vinyl flak vest.

    After a few minutes of looking over the sale threads, I couldn't find any recent offerings of vests made of leather (or leather-like) material. I'm doing a Deathwatch build, but I've been told that Jango-style vests are similar to what I need. Is anyone still taking measurements and making these? My deadline is June 19th for a convention, and I'd rather not have to make my own....the last time I tried to sew anything was for a high school chemistry project I got a D in.

    There was a member here - "Bleahh" I believe - that was making them, but he has not been active. I'm looking for something similar to do the black under-vest for my Bossk build.

    There was a guy over on the BHG forums (Delta13, I think) who was doing custom leather work, but mostly gauntlets and the like. Might want to check over there...

    If you have any luck, please let me know.

    Wish I could help more...

    Thanks for the reply tk231, I'll see if I can get a PM to him.
    As for Delta13, I saw his sales thread on the Mercs and contacted him a few days ago, but he told me he's not doing vests at this time.

    I've done flak vests before and leather before, but not mixed the two. I may be able to help you out. Feel free to PM me your specs for the vest and we can discuss if you like!
