Vest too short
The vest is cut far too short to wear. WhileI am a little long bodied, I don't believe the vest covers my navel. I will be returning it.

Bancroft Double Breasted Vest
I received the vest quickly. The vest is of decent quality but be aware that it is very tubular in shape I wear an athletic cut and even tightening the adjustment on the back of the vest it was still a bit loose at the waist. If you need the vest for an event be sure that when you are ordering you give yourself time to have alterations made. I will get the vest altered and I am sure I will be quite happy with it for some time.

Wicked Nice
Great look at a great price. Buy a size bigger than you need, it runs small and I ordered the 3x tall, it was a good thing I did. I'm only 6' tall and this came JUST to the top of my Vigilante pants. The buttons are very flimsy, I'll have to have them tailored on properly, but other than that, this vest is the bomb!

Striking
When I received my medium Bancroft Double Breasted vest, I was disappointed. This disappointment had nothing to do with the quality or look of the vest, both of which were above my expectations, but the fact that the medium ran really large and I was excited upon seeing how handsome it was that I really really really wanted to wear it to work the next day. When I tried it on, I had to cinch the strap in the back to the max and it was still really loose by at least an inch or more. The armholes were also cut for arms much bigger than mine. Needless to say, I returned the item for a small and the Historical Emporium carried out their standard practice of excellent customer service and shortly delivered my small vest, which I am wearing right at this moment at work. I have already received 3 compliments on the quality. Another thing worth mentioning is that I am not a small guy. I am 6' 165lbs with a swimmers body (large upper body, slim torso), so if you have a similar body type, then you may want to order the small.

Simply Amazing
I ordered this after reading all of the positive reviews, but still somehow expecting a problem: wrong size, customer service, shipping time, etc. -- But I cannot explain how impressed I was with everything. The quality was amazing, shipping was fast, and the sizing was perfect. I didn't need to experience the customer service past the initial purchase because it was great. I bought it for a friend of mine as a birthday gift, and I had to watch everyone swoon over his excellent vest that I picked out and purchased. I am making all of personal purchases from Historical Emporium from now on as well as gifts. I could not be happier with my experience.

I've ordered costume pieces from other vendors thst were, on arrival, just costume pieces. The Bancroft double brested vest from Historical Emporium, however, feels and looks authentic, but also is finely made. I'll be back!

as advertised
I ordered mine a bit large and had it locally tailored to fit, which I would recommend. Button holes are a bit small, but that is an easy fix. Only real concern is long term if the cloth covering the buttons snags, there are no spares.

Just as promised
Nicely made, sharp cut to its angles, just as pictured. Took this for a spin at our local pirate fest, with great results. Very sharp layering piece for historical or steampunk applications. Considering the above, this vest in particular spans a number of time periods, allowing great versatility. Buttonholes were sturdy enough to support a watch chain, though I would be careful with the buttons themselves: Being small and light, they are prone to becoming loose if any single one is submitted to strain. Even on my size small, arm holes allowed freedom of movement. Two pockets, both of which are somewhat shallow. They will contain a pocketwatch of fair size, but business cards will protrude by half their length. A solid piece of clothing-grade (not merely costume-grade) apparel.

Bancroft Waistcoat
Always have concerns when ordering online. However, for all who read this, have no fears. The waistcoat I ordered is an excellent purchase; fits to a 'T'; is well crafted; couldn't have asked for more. Have already worn it upon several occasions and received numerous ego busting compliments. Will order again without hesitation. Thank you Historical Emporium!!!!

Awesome!
I received this in the mail recently (and quickly I may add) and am floored by the great item I got! The vest is well made, the fabric is very much above par, and the quality of the vest itself amazing. Thank you!

I love the vest, it fits great. Only thing I'm not too crazy about is the buttons are not very secure. After wearing it a few times, the buttons look like their ready to fall off shortly. Other than that, the vest is great. Thanks again.
