Sliky Smooth!
I have been building my mid-1800s wardrobe recently and this was a fantastic addition. I wore it recently to my work's holiday party (Excelsior dress shirt, plus a cravat that I made, and top hat and cane purchased at the San Francisco Dickens Faire). It was the perfect bit of finery for the festive occasion - especially after taking off my coat since it was pretty warm inside.

Great quality on this vest. The Gramercy velvet vests are lacking in material assurance. Had to throw them out due to chunks of velvet coming off. I will probably order another Buckingham vest.

Fantabulous vest
I absolutely LOVE this vest. The red/black Buckingham vest is completely stunning. It came to my home in about 2-3 business days from the time I bought this vest. The vest is absolute splendor and beauty. It also fits me very well. I do have some words of advice to those who want this vest. First: you're going to want to reenforce the buttons as they are a little loosely attached. Second: be very honest about your measurments. This vest is cut smaller than other vests made by HE. Other than that you will be the talk of the town in the Buckingham vest. If you love victorian style vests; get this now.

It would have been nice if you had vests in smaller sizes than Small. This vest we had to sew in. But still a very nice vest and a good fabrick.

5 Stars is not high enough!! The Buckingham Vest is exactly what I wanted it to be and how the website portrays is! The materials used are high quality and it is well made. It will be used with a costume, and will compliment it wonderfully!

I am very satisfied with the service that I have recieved. The transaction was very simple. I'm not going to lie I was a little skeptic about the vest measurements, but the vest fits so nicely. (Don't cheat on your measurements!) The shipping was awesome! I ordered the vest two days before Christmas and I recieved it within 5-7 days. I have nothing but positive feedback and I look forward to my next purchase from this site!

review of vest
beautiful garment I had the all black version too. Now I want one that is purple, that is black with purple accents, buttons and edges. It wears well and many people tell me how attractive it is. But then I love vests perhaps a morning coat in similar colors would be fitting as well

best vest yet
I am particular about my purchases in clothing, and I have been looking for a vest like this for a while. To say I am pleased with this vest is an understatement. Shipped fast and arrived before promised. The style, make, quality and the perfect fit means I will be shopping with HE again and very soon. The best vest yet.

Historically accurate? Maybe. Awesome? A resounding yes! This is a Sharp(e), dashing waistcoat that got me noticed the first time I put it on. The fabric is excellent and the buttons are good quality. The button-hole stitching is machine-made: enough said. The cut is longer than the usual vest and is generous through the stomach area without being over-large in the shoulders. Beautifully shaped and tapered so you don't miss the adjuster strap at all. Only downside is that the inside French seams did not leave enough room to cover the rough edges so after one wearing I had thick threads hanging out all over. However, that's easily remedied with snips and should not put you off the purchase. Multiple buttons give several different looks. One of their best products. Highly recommended.
