Default Custom Vest

Does anyone know a place that makes fishing vests? I know someone who wants a custom fly fishing vest made for a non-fishing purpose - they want to choose the fabric color, pocket size / etc. Might also want something written on the back. I've done the google search but am wondering if anyone has personal knowledge or experience.

Hi William,

I can't help and have been thinking of posting some photos of my old vest in a completely unrelated thread. I'll do this right now, the person who did mine doesn't make vests but you'll see what was done soon as I load the pictures.

Stand by

You did'nt mention what the vest might be for. There are vests designed for motorcycle riding, vests made for photographers, and concealed carry vests for handgun owners. You can also get military style M.O.L.E. vests and put any size or style of pouch or pocket combination together that might be desired. Google can take you to any of those.
And.....any city in the country must have a few people who supplement their income doing custom sewing and garment repair. Most dry cleaners have a tailor shop they recommend. A tailor could put together a vest that your friend could design. Hope that gives you some help on the "vest quest "

Thanks for the feedback! Casey, I sent them an email and will see where it goes. Ard, I'll go check for the picture!

Siege, yes I've been following the wonderful google trail, more wondering if anyone had experience or knowledge about buying a 'custom' vest. It isn't for anything as specific as you listed. Its for a company that wants the visual of a fly fishing vest in a particular color (TBD).

Thanks

Oh, gotcha. I was in a sporting goods store Saturday, and all the employees were wearing fly fishing vests. The place was new to me, Element Outfitters. The staff was easy to locate, dressed like that. The vests, however were just plain 'ol tan.
If all else fails, he could buy cotton vests and colorfast dye. ....
