Suggested Fabrics 


Exterior: Wool, wool blends, corduroy, denim, pre-quilted cottons, canvas, cotton drill, suede and oilskin are all suitable fabrics. You could use quilting cottons for a spring weight vest or quilt an extra layer in between the exterior and lining fabric for extra warmth. 
Pockets: Because of the nature of the box pockets, look for fabrics which are sturdy but not bulky, such as cotton drill, lightweight canvas, etc.
Lining: Cotton, linen, and flannel work well.
