Bruclek – men's vest used in folk costume. Made of black broadcloth. It consists of four pieces. Below the waist, the pieces of the back create loose overlapping dents sewn together so that they create a few dense stiff ripples. The edges of the ’bruclek’ are trimmed with red broadcloth. The front and the pockets are decorated with brass buttons and appliques of sapphire-blue string, brushed into little tassels – 'kitosiki' – at the ends. Scenes of farming work adorn the buttons. ’Bruclek’ is mid-thigh length.
