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!

The only issue is that it is slightly short on me. Fits well, but I would have liked it down another inch or so.

Great Quality, Tight Fit
Very much liked the quality of this vest, being all cotton and not a synthetic fabric, for example. Same material, front and back. Only problem was too tight a fit, seemed too narrow for me. So I must return this vest, unfortunately.
