Almost perfect
This is a beautiful vest with nice lines. I have not worn it as often as I planned because both welt pockets are stitched in the middle, and though the description suggests they would hold a watch, the remaining gap is too small. Since a fob watch is a common accessory for such a vest, this was disappointing. The vest is otherwise very good. Editor's note: Pockets are sewn shut for transit and can be fully opened with a seam ripper upon receipt.

Drake vest red
I purchased the vest for my husband for Christmas. He loves the covered buttons. He plays the guitar, and was impressed by the covered buttons because they will not scratch his guitar. He loves the color and cut of the vest. And it looks great on him!!

Drake Vest
I ordered the vest and received it on time and was very pleased with the order. Actually I ordered it from this website and it was just like the picture. The only thing that I have against it that I ordered a large where it fits tight. I think I could have purchased a XL instead. I would like to say to anyone that please know your correct size and if possible order a size up. But after all it accented my suit very well. I thank you Historical Emporium for helping me out.

sizing was big
I sized this according to my chest measurement and found it to be too big. I didn't have time to exchange it so I had a tailor take it in and now it fits better. Be careful with the sizing, and perhaps these run a little big. Take some accurate measurements, talk to the customer service folks, see what they think before you place your order. This looks very handsome, feels a little bit like a costume piece with some of the finishing. Given the price, I wouldn't expect anything to feel like a short cut on this, but I'm only taking one star. Without a coat, this is a really ostentatious waistcoat. Be warned. It's an attention getter. With a coat over top, I get the splashes of gaudiness that I was looking for, lurking beneath a bit of classy modesty. The weight of this is really light, probably the kind of waistcoat you're looking for in warmer climates.

Sizing was right on, fast shipping, really have to look hard but this vest does have Chinese dragons on it! Will continue to buy from this company.

lovely vest
This style runs larger than the canvas so despite the gracious return policy I gifted it to a much appreciative friend!

pockets too shallow
This is a good vest; well made from decent materials. Should get 5 stars, but for the pockets. They are way too shallow. Main reason I bought the vest was to accessorize with an antique pocket watch. The standard railroad pocket watch barely fits in the pocket. Another 1/2 to 1 inch depth would make this 5 star.

So who's Drake?
I don't know and I don't care. The vest is just as advertised. It fits well, it's classy, it's smart - what's not to like? My only "complaint" is that the pockets are *too* well sewn up. I was unable to safely undo them before I wore the vest. Ah, well, I tucked my pocket watch into the waistband of my pants as all was well. Still, the stitching is really finished work, not easy to undo. And frankly, I would bet that most of us ordering these items are wearing pocket watches. And that's the worst I have to say. Don't feel uneasy about buying this vest, it's quite worth it!
