A fantastic addition to any period look, the Garen Suede Vest works well for the Renaissance fair and historical re-enactments. The leather vest includes eyelets beneath the shoulder cuffs for attaching long or short sleeves if desired. Four decorative buckled straps fasten the front of the long suede vest while adding distinctive style. The sleeveless medieval vest can be worn over a period shirt in a similar fashion to a doublet or jerkin. Made from fine suede leather, the Garen vest comes in black and brown color options for two striking looks.
Please note that colors may vary slightly from what is pictured.
- Available in black or brown

Sturdy and comfortable, i wear mine w/ the short sleeves as a doublet/jerkin to various Renaissance Faires. Quite satisfied with this item.

Amazing product! Bought the brown version to wear for my first LARP and fell in love with it as soon as I pulled it out of the box.

Very nice, good quality leather that’s not too thin. Straps and buckles are nice quality and actually has a little bit of padding in the shoulders. the padding worked out great as I riveted steel plates in to the vest to turn this in to some brigandine. Very happy with the results.

Very well made and styling suede vest, but it might be a little too warm to wear on hot days

Well made and very comfortable, made from good quality leather. I didn’t realize there were sleeves available for it, I will have to look into that. I’m very happy with this vest!

Great quality all around, I got the x-large and it’s a little bit tight but it works out just fine.

Nice, high quality leather for both the best and the straps. Not too heavy, but wouldn’t want to wear it on a hot day.

This is an excellent vest! Quality soft suede leather & premium construction on this garment. Durable, stylish, & comfortable. It will work nicely in cooler weather. You wouldn’t want to wear this on a hot day, for sure. I ordered the Red one & it had a small, dime-sized area down in the front along the bottom hem that didn’t fully absorb the red dye. Other than that, I have no complaints. The color is beautiful & immediately catches the eye. I would buy another one without a second thought.

Excellent, high quality piece. Not quite leather ‘armor’ but very thick, durable, and structured. The red color Definitely stood out at Renn faire, though glad it was a cooler day. Would recommend hanging outside for a while after you receive it, the new leather/suede smell is prevalent.

My vest arrived today and I am thrilled with it! It looks great and fits better than I could have hoped. I’ll definitely be a returning customer!
