A handsome waistcoat
It was the perfect complement to a pirate costume I was assembling. Thank you!

First time is a winner!
This is the first time I've ordered from Historical Emporium. I've perused the items for some time, but never had the courage to order. Well, I was not disappointed! The vest is exceptionally well made and exactly what I was looking for. The next time I need something, I won't hesitate to order again!

It's really unfair to look this good
Recently I had the opportunity to attend an event called The Steampunk Masquerade Promenade and I was decked out in clothes from Steampunk Emporium. This was the first time I'd worn the Commander Vest, it fit fantastic, and was comfortable all night long. It's quality clothing that's made to last. My entire outfit consisted of the following from (Historical) Steampunk Emporium: Commander Vest Baily Trousers Mini Gauntlet, Brown Black Pearl Ornate Pocket Watch Brown Leather Buckle Suspenders Pin, Gears and Wings Additionally, I wore a black button down shirt where I'd replaced the buttons with "copper gear" buttons, and a steam punk top hat I'd acquired a year ago randomly. Anyway, I got compliments everywhere I turned all night. Men and women alike complimented the style and the look. I think that a big part of this outfit looking so good is the quality of the clothes. Unlike anything you'd pick up in a costume shop, this stuff is made to last. I've actually owned the Baily Trousers for a couple of years now... and I've not been nice to them. They still look great, fit amazing, and have held their color after repeated washing. The suspenders look great and fit well thanks to the elastic on the back. The pocket watch I like so much I've started wearing on a regular basis with my jeans, clipped to a belt loop (finally an opportunity to use that 5th pocket!!!). The Brown Guantlet fit my wrist better than I would imagine as it was listed for women......

Great quality, bit tight
The only thing to mention is that the vest is a bit tight. Every other vest I've gotten here an "M" is very comfortable, looks good, and has just a bit of room. This one though is snug. Not uncomfortable, not a 'problem', just keep it in mind. If I were to have gotten a Large I'd undoubtedly have to have it altered to fit correctly.

Great Vest!
I wanted to write a review about the Commander Vest because from reading the other reviews I had concern about the sizing with some saying that it runs small. I usually wear a 35 or 36 which is right on the border of a small. I ordered a small and medium with the idea I would keep the one which fits and return the other. I opened the small first and it fit perfectly so no need to even try the medium. It is a fitted cut though through the waist which I like very much. It is a very nice looking vest with the aged brass buttons giving it a sharp look. It is a great part of my steampunk outfit and I am very happy with the purchase.

Great style...but fit & washing issues
Love the style & color of this vest. But beware of fit and washing issues. My other 10 vests are mediums and fit well. This vest is apparently cut for a VERY snug fit and the medium felt like a girdle! Had to return it and re-order a large, which is a little too big, but is wearable (although I ended up having to pay for shipping three times over for a double purchase and return). Machine washing & drying the garment per label instructions ("machine wash cold, tumble dry low") unfortunately yielded a VERY wrinkled vest which required 45 minutes of careful pressing to get it looking decent again. The Emporium website suggests "machine wash in cold and line dry...or professionally dry clean." It would be helpful if Historical Emporium could eliminate the conflict between website and label in washing/drying instructions. Although this vest may technically be machine washable and dryable, Iíd strongly suggest dry-cleaning. If you can get the size that fits and avoid machine washing and drying it, this otherwise nice vest should look good -- and shipping was amazingly fast.

Great Purchase!
The Commander's Vest arrived within three days of placing the order. The vest is great! Fitted well, high-end materials, etc. Wore it during REnFest in Miami and received lots of compliments.
