At first I was concerned that I couldn't find anything to go with the ivory color. But once I started shopping around things started to fall into place. You always recommend black and white but that's not me, taking the easy way out.

Outstanding Vest!
This is a very colorful vest indeed and like some have said the front pockets do work,all you have to do is cut them open and your good to go.

While nice looking, this men's vest from "Historical" Emporium was not particularly period accurate, but worse than that...made in CHINA....

The Color was amazing, the fix was great, had many compliments on this vest. I have purchased 7 vest in all the only thing that I wish it had was the pockets, my glove and my watch with chain will not fit in pockets.

Good Vest
This vest arrived in the usual manner - excellent speed and condition. The quality and coloring of the vest are great. The pockets do have to be cut open, and they leave a little to be desired in depth. If your a card dealer, this vest hits the mark!

Lafayette Vest
Great item. I think it can fit many era's. I found the pattern to be colorful and unique. I got many compliments on it at various historical events. I found the construction and quality to be great. Comes with an extra button. Only con is the pockets are for show and not real. A strong eye catcher. It pops!!
