Princess seams, which the Soho has along its front and back, are vertical folds sewn into a garment to create a more female-friendly shape. The standard, boxier cut of a unisex item is pulled inward by the seams, thus making a better-fitting silhouette.
Vantage Apparel's Zocket system allows for easy access to embroidery areas, zippering open so the lining isn't punctured and closed so the embroidery back won't show afterwards.
Soft and breathable internal taffeta lining.
Sueded polyester body includes a water-repellent finish.
Optional turn-back cuffs are finished on the inside, so when they're rolled back the lining isn't exposed.
A stylish vest suitable for corporate or casual markets, the Surveyor is great for times when a little extra warmth is needed. (800) 824-6464

The Surveyor uses Tri-Mountain's EmbAccess system, which Danny Tsai, vice president of merchandising for Tri-Mountain, Irwindale, Calif., described as, "A hidden zipper along the jacket lining seam that unzips to give the embroiderer access to hoop the garment without having to go through the lining."
Nylon yoke panels are not only stylistically distinct, but are also water-resistant.
Tsai explained that the vest is color-blocked to give a sporty, rugged look. "We find that the more we're willing to push the 'edginess' of our line—whether it be color-blocking, contrast stitching, piping, etc.—the more distributors like it," he said. "I think today's end-user is willing to take more chances style-wise." The vest is available in four color-blocked combinations and two solid colorations.
