My husband loves his new vest. The brushed cotton is a very heavy quality material. The vest's short waist makes it very comfortable for daily wear.

Fantastic product!
I am very happy with my purchase. The vest was top-quality, looked great and I wore it as part of a Halloween western get-up. But I think I will be wearing it all the time now!

Just right
I ordered size XL since I wear 46R coat. The vest fits very nicely and looks real good. Quality is outstanding and the service, including packaging, was excellent. I'm very happy with the purchase.

Very comfortable vest
This is my wedding outfit, period accurate because I am getting married in an 1870 Stage and Pony Express stop. Very excited.

Heavy cotton, feels like armor
Surprised at the heavy weight cotton, less akin to costume wear, more like every day work vest. Buttons are large and tight but will probably loosen up over time.

These Livingston Brushed Vest are always a winner. My actor needed two(2)in Black. Vests were in stock and fit perfect. Thanks to the adjustment strap on back of vest. Always a great feature and so very helpful.

Only one issue
All of the items I have received have met or been above expectation. The only issue is this particular vest is too short for my frame. But I do like the style and quality of it! Respectfully, Nathaniel Branch

Awesome vest!
I ordered a vest, and I was EXTREMELY happy with the product I received. It was shipped VERY quickly, and it was very high quality. I would absolutely order again from them!

Comfortable and well-made
I am a professional carriage driver and was looking for Victorian period clothing to wear at work. I have absolutely loved this vest. It is constructed of very high-quality material, stitching, etc. It fits me very well. I have a 43-inch chest, and the size Large Livingston vest fits me comfortably and attractively. The only consideration I did not account for was the fact that the brushed cotton material picks up the horse hair easily and I simply keep a lint-roller on-hand to deal with it. I would happily recommend Historical Emporium and this vest to others.

BUY... THIS... VEST!!!
SO I'm ito the old west as virtually all customers who come here are, and I also like things to be rugged and heavy-duty enough to last. I also like all-black, and ONLY all-black. And finally, may your respective higher powers of choice bless mother nature's invention of pure cotton. So, with those things said, I can proudly say: I'm happy with this vest as part of my old west style regular everyday wear. I wear my old west stuff (now including this vest) while doing such ordinary things as grocery shopping at walmart once a month. I wear this vest and the rest of my all-black old west all-cotton outfit with my black wool felt low-derby hat, my cotagonal-cornered rectangular-lensed old west sunglasses, my square-toed black leather cavalry boots, my brushed stainless steel mechanical wind-up old west style pocket watch--and so on and so on-- whenever I go to town. And all criticism as to my personal style, be damned. The material this vest is made of has the twill knit of dickies work pants, but feels at least twice as heavy-grade there as, like I'd say equivalent in heavywheight density to modern day cotton duck canvas. It also feels just soft enough to feel nice, yet its texture still has the simultaneous crispness (if that makes sense to you) to also feel as-- if not far more-- durable as any Dickies-like work pants. Yet, thise vest (and now that I've sampled its fabric in person, the entire Livingston black brushed cotton clothing line sold here at H.E.) is...
