Shoulder Piece Distressed Level Medium. No issues but the pebbled surface has been worn fairly smooth.
Shoulder Piece Notables Cut and hand shaped from a larger piece of a vintage harness leather. All edges are dressed and burnished the full perimeter. Lined with new suede leather on the bottom. Since the shoulder piece does not slide to adjust position, I’ll need to get an extra measurement from you so I can properly locate it for the custom fitting.
