Vest
The vest is as promised. The material is heavier than I expected and it is warmer than I expected, but that is probably my lack of understanding. I think that the vest will be a reliable garment that I can use for reenactments for many years.

Livingston Set
I bought the Livingston vest in Medium size to match the frock coat for a formal civil war dance; the fabric is soft and the fit is perfect. I can even wear it with modern suit pants and jacket.

Fantastic
The vests are nice. They were a bit shorter than expected, but still acceptable. I feel like they were worth the money and wait.

Just what I wanted
Got a gift of some cash & decided to buy this to add to my vest collection. The quality was just as good as all the other vests I've ordered. The only caveat is to be sure of your size. This was one that I got the XXL as the chest size called for it. It fit perfectly.

This Is The Vest To Buy!
Let me make this perfectly clear: I'm on old school biker with a number of leather cuts. I have always been a vest person, preferably leather. But when my youngest daughter began planning her wedding this summer she really trimmed her budget in a number of areas and wanted to keep things simple for the wedding party. She asked me to wear slacks, a vest, dress shirt and tie to give her away. The wedding will be outdoors in late July in the South (hot & humid). I wanted a vest that would breathe as much as possible in the heat but it also had to be well made and stylish. When I sent some links of the Livingston Black Brushed Cotton Vest to my daughter she was absolutely elated by it. She rarely gets excited about things, but she was certainly excited about how this vest looked. This vest looks and fits amazing. The crew at Historical Emporium treated me like a king with stellar customer service. I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase, especially when it makes my daughter and wife happy.

Nicely done
Wonderful jet black brushed fabric. Buttons nicely stitched. Careful wearing a pocket watch with this vest: If the vest is a little tight around the middle, the roundness of the watch will form a slight mated circle visible from the front. The nature of the depth of black of the fabric is the cause -- use a lint brush to make the area jet black as the surrounding material. This is a very warm fabric.

Quality piece
The vest is very well made and fit perfectly. I am trying to replicate a railroad conductor's uniform and this vest is as close as they come to what was worn by old time railroad conductors.

Well made lapel vest
I bought this for a casual dress wedding I was attending - wife got the idea from Pintrest. It goes great with white dress shirt, jeans and some boots. I would not limit its use to just historical dress wear, this is a nice looking vest that can be worn for any occasion. As for quality, it is excellent - thick material, very nice lining inside, & well made. It was a little pricey, but after receiving it, the quality stood out, and I felt like I got my moneys worth. I have a fairly large build and I find this is much more comfortable through the arms and chest than wearing a sport coat. If you are looking for a lapel type vest, this is one to consider.

Practical yet elegant
I needed a more dressy vest and this fit the bill. Dry clean only encourages me to to not wear it in the barn or fields. Great fit. Love having 4 pockets!
