With this vest, Sugar Cane pays tribute to the old indigo fabric manufacturer Stifel.
Stifel was operating in West Virginia from 1835-1956, and is most known for their dark blue indigo fabric with a white dot pattern; called many names such as Wabash, Calico, and Polka dot.
The dots had the practical function of making the wearer stand out in a crowd or against a background, making them a favourite amongst laborers and railroad workers.
This vest has the classic look of early 20th century workwear, with black-painted iron buttons, slash pockets, button-hole for pocket watch, and a cinch-back.
