My family is born and raised in New England with most of them in Vermont. Even though my parents moved to New York, part of me still lives in VT. My great grandmother Edna had a farm in a part of Stowe called Sterling. I have heard stories about this farm from all generations. This vest was designed with that magic place in mind. I can see it as something my Grandmother would have worn as she kept her home, tended to the fall harvest and sipped her morning coffee in. It is designed to be both functional, fashionable and stylish.
