Cavalier Vest - Black Velvet

Item: 003995




Availability: Closeout

Undoubtedly dashing, our Cavalier Vest in Black Velvet is sure to make female admirers swoon and male adversaries take note. Establish your reputation as “the” man about town with this luxe Regency-inspired vest.

Opulent in black velvet, our flat-front, fully lined vest fastens on the inside with a sturdy button and then on the outside with a row of five engraved metal buttons. The remaining row of exterior buttons are decorative to create the popular double-breasted look of the era. Another touch of elegant Regency tailoring is found at the neckline with the separation from the 2-inch, stand-up collar and 5.5” wide lapel, which is similar to an 1810 silk vest from the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s collection. No pockets to enhance the slim silhouette.

Fashioned from a plush blend of 55% viscose and 45% polyester with a 100% rayon back and lining. Made in the USA. Dry clean only. Available in men’s sizes S–2X. Offered in several colors.

High Quality and Great Fit
This is a GREAT looking high quality vest. I am a size 40R (US) with an athletic build (with slightly broader shoulders for my height and weight - 5'10"/160) and purchased a large version of this vest. If you have an athletic or slim build you may want to try the medium if you want a super tailored look. However, there is a fitting ribbon in the back that ties up nicely so I was quite pleased with how the piece fit and looked. I was originally going to purchase the Classic Canvas Work Vest but I thought I would spend a little extra and get this vest and am super glad I did. TOTALLY worth the extra $ IMO.

I am very pleased with this vest. It fits wonderfully and goes very well with several of my shirts. I received several flattering compliments upon the very first wearing.

Very smart
This vest not only looks handsome but comes with a silk cinch/tie at the back, which really enables you to tighten the fit and taper the torso. Very handsome indeed! and covers Regency through mid-Victorian styles.

I love the look, I love feel, it has it's own character which puts you in character of a true gentlemen. Enhancing any everyday outfit, even jeans and a smart/ Collar shirt. Now this vest, it could be a little tighter in the waist - for those of us who are avg 5 to 7 lbsover wt/ht chart or slimmer). But, most of all you have to respect IT'S CURRENT affordable PRICE :) Btw, if you shop here at Gentleman's Emporium I hope never wear your trainers/ sneakers outside the gym. Hence, if you do...Go find a good pair of shoes. Be different, be better, be a gentlemen.
