I have a Hitmonlee and I don't know what item to give it,

Evs: 252 Atk / 252 SpD/4 Spe (pretty standard)
Trait: Reckless
Adamant Nature
- Blaze Kick
- Fake Out
- Close Combat
- Bullet Punch/Mach Punch

What's a good held item for it? Would Assault Vest work well?

I would recommend replacing Close Combat with High Jump Kick because:
1. High Jump Kick has a higher base power, which is additionally boosted by Reckless
2. High Jump Kick doesn't lower your defenses

Give it the normal gem. It will power up fake out so you can deal big damage on the first turn. Assault Vest will work too. And choose Mach Punch because you will have STAB. Hopefully this answers your question.
Hope I helped!(ish)

thank you :) really i wanted confirmation that assault vest would work, because i didnt want something like normal gem that only had the one use to it for the battle. i think i might go for bullet punch, because although mach punch is stab, bullet gives me a counter to fairies :) thanks!
No problem :)
