an alternative to the everyday vest
We were unexcited with the sameness, dull colors and lack of functionality of the so-called "Midtown Vest" and most of all, the stigma of wearing one so we constructed our own, sustainably and responsibly, bringing a tailor's mentality and luxurious wool to a wiser audience.
"Ritter is selling fast for a new brand and it is now my go-to vest because of the minimalist sans chest logo design combined with the versatile alpaca merino blend which is perfect for ever-changing conditions."

"I am living in my present vest. Love them. You should get them into some game shooting shops here. Everyone seems to wear Schoffel vests. Your vests are so much better."

"Holy sheep shit I love it!
So freakin' comfortable.
When I put it on and put my hands in the pockets I said to myself ... the geniuses at Ritter put pockets within pockets with zippers ... 🤯 Woot!
Totally stoked and going back online to get another color"
