Sheriff's Vest

Just completed and posted this Sheriff Vest online for sale on TurboSquid. I started out with a low poly mesh:

This is essentially taking about 1 million polys of high detail and getting it to be displayed on a mesh that's only 1925 polys, which makes it extremely optimized.

Lastly, I composited a photo-real texture to be used on the image:

This is the final result with both the diffuse texture and normal map:
