Classic Canvas Work Vest - Crimson

Item: 003155



Red, but not inflammably so, our Classic Canvas Work Vest in Crimson reminded him of the canyonís mellow glow when seared by the late afternoon light. A relaxed yet rousing addition to a gentlemanís 19th century wardrobe.

A real winner in reproduction waistcoats, this one features the flat front, higher neckline and notched lapels seen so frequently in the mid 1800s, give or take a couple decades either way. Adding to the bygone charm -- five antiqued brass buttons to fasten the front and four inset pockets to accommodate a pocket watch, a ticket stub or what have you. Cinch self back allows for an adjustable fit and fully lined with a lighterweight fabric. Matched separates also available in several color options.

Constructed from 100% cotton canvas duck. Imported. Machine wash on cold. Available in sizes S through 3X.

Great Classic Canvas Vest
My husband loves classic western wear. This vest is one of his favorites. High quality, not cheap material.

Fine working class weskit
Excellent canvas vest in Burgundy. My last one I outgrew was double breasted, but I prefer this single breasted version. All four pockets work and it is the same canvas front to back, so it still looks good without the coat on. Fits true to size and is easy to clean stains from the canvas with cold water. Great for Victorian London, Western, and Halfling uses! Looks great with a watch chain, I love it!

This Vest Will Make You Look Good - Guaranteed
I needed some western themed garb for a promo I was shooting. I ordered this and the Walnut Classic Canvas Duster. Together with a bandana, a hat, and a pocket watch, it transformed my actor into a genuine looking cowboy. Wouldn't have looked nearly as good without this vest! The build quality is amazing - especially the stitching - and it stands up to all-day shooting and multiple machine washes without wrinkling or pilling (did not machine dry - hung to dry). The buttons are great quality and sewn to the material well, so I'm not worried about one popping off. Even better, the buttons on the duster match the ones on this vest for a very finished look. I highly recommend this as a wardrobe item for film, video, or any other venture in which you might need western wear. Very impressed, 5 out of 5!

Wonderful vest
This vest is well made and looks fantastic. My only issue was the sizing , the 3x was a bit large around the arm holes. No big problem, my wife gets a chance to try out her new sewing machine . Next time I will try the 2x but I will definitely be buying here again.

My 5th Vest/Waistcoat
I am now the proud wearer of 5 Emporium waistcoats; not all at the same time of course ;) Two wool and three canvas. And I am totally satisfied with each of them. The color is advertised as "Crimson"... not being familiar with crimson, I see it as a unique red-brown rusty color. I like the way the color reflects light! ! I am looking forward to Emporium having an all wool, pinstripe, vest.

Great Versatile Vest
Great versatile and durable vest. I wear them to work. Depending on the rest of the outfit, they can be dressy, casual, or western. I liked them so much I have gotten one in each color.

Another for the Wardrobe!
I bought the black single-breasted version of this vest two years ago. Last year, I added the double-breasted version in Crimson. I was so pleased with the unusual deep earth tone of the Crimson, I added the single-breasted version this year. Theyíre washable, durable, and work with a number of different dress styles, as well as being period authentic enough for various 19th Century dress opportunities. Iíll be getting more as I continue to increase my waistcoat collection! Thank you, Historical Emporium!

Very Nice
I love this vest. My only complaint that it is slightly bigger than I thought based on their sizing recommendations, but the next size down probably would have been too small.

Work vest
We bought this along with the canvas double breast vest. Yet again another fabulous purchase. The workmanship and attention to detail that have gone into the making of all that we have purchased from historical emporium is second to none. Thankyou

Wish H.E. carried XS
The cloth and stitchwork are fine quality, no complaints there - but we went with the smallest available size, and the vest was still boxy and shapeless on my 5'7" chest 36" waist 30.5" guy. For a company that provides ludicrously long-legged trousers that everyone then has to go get hemmed, just in case some customers are gangly, they aren't worried about marketing to slender fellas. (Can't comment as to durability/comfort yet; order hasn't been worn past the basic try-on, as they're all going to the tailor's to get hemmed, will update if they wear remarkably well/poorly.)

A solid, classic work vest!
I bought this vest for my husband and I was surprised how solid it is built. He feels that this vest is worth a lot more and is an amazing deal at it's price point. The fabric is thick and high quality and it it looks absolutely dapper. I would definitely order another in a different color for him!
