    I'm looking to recreate a replica of this leather vest from the movie the warriors...
    does anyone have any ideas on how i'd go about doing the leather piping around the edge and the pockets?
    any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You can probably get a diamond shaped die-cut punch tool from a leather shop like Tandy Leather and then hand punch the piping before stitching. I think some or all of the actual movie vests were pleather with painted accents to simulate piping.

    I got mine from an ebay seller satansmothers09 but it seems like he sells only the modified one now with the incorrect Warriors emblem on it since I guess the original bears to much of a resemblance to the Hells Angles. Mine has a reddish dye to it I believe there was a lot of debate as to the actual color of the Warrior's vest since the screen used ones look a lot more brown or tan. I don't think mines 100% accurate but I like it.
