Humboldt Striped Vest

Good Casual vest

Item: 002568



You’ll be at once fashionable and fastidious when outfitted in our Humboldt Stripe Vest, a style that legend says hails from the lines found in ledger books used by Victorian-era bankers. By all accounts, a proper and powerful look when paired with our matching trousers.

Fashioned in the best cotton available, this navy and tan pinstripe vest features five vintage-style buttons up the front with four welt pockets for keeping small necessities within reach. Completely high-quality, the back is fully pinstripe fabric and features a belted fastener for the proper adjustment; interior fully lined in acetate.

Imported. Made with a 100% Cotton Exterior / Acetate lining, self backed. Professionally dry clean only. Available in sizes S - 3X.

Returned Vest
The vest was a little small in the mud section. I have returned the vest and requested a larger size. Thank you

Humboldt Stripe
This is my new favorite outfit. I feel like a fancy banker or perhaps a mobster. The color is like a worn/distressed navy and the stipes add a dapper touch that accentuates my 6'3" super slim frame. The buttons match the stripes nicely. I feel as the fabric and pattern will wear well for many years. I'm a bit in between sizes, 42" chest, but the medium fits handsomely. 36" waist is my normal, stayed with 36" and they fit great. I do wish the best came in a tall option, but it covers my suspender tabs and waist strap on my trousers. I couldn't wear it with modern waisted pants, but again I'm 6'3" and 190 lbs. I have several vest and trouser sets from Historical Emporium, super excited to finally have something blue.

The vest is of course great quality as I have come to expect. Fit is perfect, however with the light on the pictures it gave tje appearance that the color was that of a lighter blue. It is in fact very dark. It is almost a denim vest. Not exactly what I had expected.

Humbolt - well made, runs slightly large
Just got my Humboldt vest, this is a very well made and sharp-looking vest. Nice heavy material, in a dark slate blue/grey, with pleasing stripes. This one does run slightly large - I ordered a XXL, and have a 50" chest and stand 6'2". There is definitely room in the chest, and more in the waist, so order your natural size at the most. Would definitely recommend this vest.

A vision in stripes! (Part 1)
I've never owned a suit that wasn't black, or a black pinstripe; the Humboldt stripe vest (and matching trousers) makes for an excellent change, and one that stands out and gets you noticed. The fit is generous, the colours compliment each other very well (and the buttons match the stripe perfectly), and the texture of the fabric makes the waistcoat suitable for casual wear, as well as part of something more formal, or as I do, for work, on a regular basis (I match the Humboldt vest and trousers with the Livingston black brushed cotton town coat, black boots and a white shirt and black tie combo as in the pictures above - trust me. It works). If you're thinking of buying it, believe me, it'll make a very fine addition to your wardrobe.

Good Casual vest
This one was a bit more like a blue jean vest than I expected but it works well on more casual work days with khaki's as the stripes blend in to match.
