- OZZY FOR PRESIDENT - Handcrafted Custom Chain Stitched Worn Down Vintage Vest
We couldn't help ourselves. We're completely addicted, and needed our chain-stitched fix again! Passed down his family for over 70 years, he truly is the master of chain-stitching - and loves doing it on old jackets nonetheless, using antique tools and threads to go along with the vintage clothing that he collects and uses. This old indigo vest not only includes a huge backside chain stitched Ozzy, but also 9 hand sewn patches, 4 lapel pins, and is lined with hammered rivets.
Chain stitch is a sewing and embroidery technique in which a series of looped stitches form a chain-like pattern. Chain stitch is an ancient craft - examples of surviving Chinese chain stitch embroidery worked in silk thread have been dated to the 5th – 3rd century BC. Chain-stitching the back of this jacket took 5-6 straight hours. The pricing on these jackets is higher in order to pay the skilled craftsmen what they deserve for their work and art.
