USSVI Vest - Any Color & Any Size
Basic USSVI SUBvest
The best SUBvest on the WEB!
The Place to get one Great Vest to show off your Pride of Service!  Custom made for you in Norfolk, Virginia, the largest and greatest Navy base in the world, by a PROUD Navy Wife.
I have been making vests for over 11 years and am thrilled when I see them at a convention or an event. 
One thing to remember is that there are no rules when creating this vest, so if you can dream it up...
I probably can do it.
There are MANY things that are included FREE in the cost of the basic vest -(far more than the other guys) - if they are still out there making vests... Mine are made in the USA by a NAVY wife... custom for you... Made out of a 7 ounce cotton/poly twill these vests are strong and greatly made.
ALL THE TRIMMINGS: Including in the base cost of $50, is a GREAT value. The basic price includes all of the following;
*Gold,Gray, Metallic Silver or Metallic gold braided trim expertly sewn on (sold only by SUBvest)
*Gold chained buttons and button holes (also a SUBvest original) 
*Your name on the right front decoratively sewn on
*Your dolphins on the left, you earned em!
*USSVI large patch on the back
*The name of the USSVI base that you belong to is sewn 1" tall above the logo on the back
*Life Member Text and or Holland Club text sew STRAIGHT across - not on a curve and in SILVER THREAD. City and State can even be added here that would be sewn in a curve under the main logo IN GOLD THREAD, the picture of the Dallas base below is outdated - sorry.
*AND Shipping by USPS with delivery confirmation.
One aspect of a vest that I would point your attention to is the Large Design on the back... the basic price includes the basic USSVI standard patch, which looks ok .   The USSVI patch is shown here to the left.
 But if you really want something to be proud of, please consider the DIRECT EMBROIDERY of the USSVI logo with nicer looking dolphins, especially if you are getting GOLD dolphins, then that is the only way to make them gold.   The cost for that is an added $20, but for 38,000 stitches... as shown here on the right.
 I think it is well worth it. 
Not to mention again that the proud Officer Dolphins, a Mustangs' split Dolphins and the WWII LARGE patch are ONLY here in the direct embroideried form.
Other than that, please take your time and fill out the long form below.  There are many options included, and I have tried to think of them all, but if you can think of something else, then please ask.... after all... it's your vest....
TRUE SIZING: When choosing your proper size, please consider the size you would purchase a sweatshirt for yourself in... only once or twice have I had someone who said that the size they picked was too small....  but over time, I do warn you that the vests "shrinks"  and your stomach will stay the same!  LOL... not really, but I have had folks get great use out of the chained button that can be applied to the front!
BELLS & WHISTLES: This is where you REALLY can personalize your SUBvest! I tell folks, there are NO Vest Police, out there, so the sky is the limit! I do not believe in nickel and diming my customers, I know who I am serving and am proud to be given this honor.
BOATS & HULLS: Each boat name and hull number are sewn 1" tall in Block font for only $5 each, no matter what.  For example,  USS  PIKE SS  173 = $5 and USS  GEORGE WASHINGTON  CARVER SSBN  656 = $5.
Want to signify BLUE or GOLD Crew,
 just write it in the text box. 
Like the look of the script font? 
No Problem!  There is a place for that in the order form.
Were you a plankowner, an XO or a CO?
Let me know in the same space you write the Boat name, and that is sewn on FREE, underneath the appropriate boat.  It will be sewn in a different color and font from the rest, as seen above.
RATES & NICK-NAMES: Sewn on the front chest are only $5 each.... come'on, I know you all have nick-names like Knuckledragger or Rocky.
Just when you thought you seen it all...  
SUBVEST does it again!
With the Blessing of the Past National Strorekeeper - I have created NEW Vest Closures!!!  Now you can wear your dolphins (gold or silver) or your Rate Device as your vest closure for an added special touch!  See below!
PATCHES: When I sew on the patches I make sure that they are secure and that the thread matches the outside edging. I can even repair an ancient patch at no added charge.
Each patch is only $5 to sew on.
And I can get the patches for you too!  
One stop shopping!
See all our patches available here . Select the Patches you would like on your vest and add them to your shopping cart, when you complete your vest order, I will have all the patches you want to!   I generally place all boat patches in time line order on the front of the vest and balance out the rest around the vest.  If you have a particular place where you would like to see a patch, then write me a note in the customer comments, or include it with the patch you have ordered in the box provided.
Would you like some text under a particular patch?  Not a problem,  just add the text desired when ordering that patch. Text under patches is optional.
this is YOUR VEST... your rules ... 'nuf said!
