An excellent addition to my wardrobe
I originally found this when I was looking for some accessories to go with a hat I'd found at goodwill. Unfortunately, it wasnt as good a color match as I'd hoped, but this is not a bad thing! The vest is comfortable, lightweight, and durable enough to wear while doing blue collar work. I'm now going out and looking for shirts, ties, and other accessories to showcase my new vest. I'd particularly recommend pairing this vest with any of the canvas pants Historical Emporium sells. Even if it's a different color, the matching fabric type helps to pull the whole thing together (and the crimson of the vest is a bit saddened, so it's a decent neutral color to build a palette around).

Great waistcoat, but there's a catch.
The waistcoat is of excellent construction, very durable, and pretty to look at. However, as others have noted, it IS a bit on the high waisted side. Me and the person I ordered it for share the same chest measurement, yet while it fits my 5'10" frame well, when he, being 6'1" wears it, there is a visible 1.5" gap between the waist of his pants and the hem of the vest. This is no strike against the vest itself, as it is of excellent quality, but if it could be made a BIT taller, it would have been perfect. Still looks good as the finishing touch on his War Doctor cosplay :) Thank you!

More brown than crimson
Excellent quality and fit, but mine at least looks much more brown than the red that shows up in the photos. Maybe I got sent the walnut by mistake?

Even Better
I bought this for a barrel-chested fiddler who is used to wearing reproduction clothing and who is VERY picky about fit & appearance. He performed in it every week-end from Thanksgiving to Christmas and absolutely LOVES it! The colour, the cut, and the finishing is all first-rate. The fabric is exactly what is described - a lightweight canvas - so do not mistake it for dressy. It was perfect for our musician, who was in a mid-19th-century tavern on the waterfront.

Great Quality
This isn't costume quality. It's truly wearable and durable clothing. I'm very impressed with the cut and feel of this vest. The attention to detail on every part -- the stitching, inner lining, and buttons -- is spot on. When I put it on, I felt like wearing it on a normal basis and not just for the costume I was putting together for it. I highly recommend this product. I'll defiantly be back to pick up other items should the quality remain this high.

Fits as great as it looks!
I recently received my double-breasted vest in the crimson colour, and I have to say, it looks every bit as great as it fits! It feels sturdy and well-made and best of all, I have something I can wear casually as well as to events and conventions with equal aplomb! I may well find myself ordering more of these if the one that I got is any indicator!
