Buckingham Vest - Black/Black

Vest Review

Item: 004154



Buttoned up with near military precision, our Buckingham Vest makes a commanding statement of 19th century style. Whatever side of the pond you prefer, this waistcoat will standout.

The front features two welt pockets: one at the waist and one at the breast, plenty of room to stow away necessities. The back is made of the same fine fabric and the interior is completely lined. The back is tailored to fit the gentleman's physique, no belt adjuster attached. Other era-specific details include the 1 ½ inch stand up collar, piping and 10 fabric covered buttons.

Fashioned from a blend of polyester and rayon. Imported. Recommend dry clean only. Available in men's sizes S - 3X. Offered in several colors.

Formal but not stuffy!
A well made garment (a perfect fit) and ideal for formal and semi-formal occasions without being stuffy. Very happy with this purchase.

Very Nice
Normally, the sizing on HE's clothing runs large, but I had a hunch to go up one size, and I'm glad I did. Even one size up, it was still a little snug, but it's a wonderful vest with the same high quality I've come to expect from HE. Very nice!

Fit for a prince!
The fit and craftsmanship are lovely. I'll be using it as part of a costume for Shakespeare in the park in July. No, not that park.

Vest not useable
Well made, esp for the price. But the size is way off. Bought and normally wear 3X. Product was at best a large. Unuseable for me.

Have been searching for this vest for years!
Have been looking for a well-tailored, high-buttoned vest for a long time. The Buckingham is very well constructed, fully lined mandarin collar vest. Its pockets are deep, and the fabric covered buttons are well made. It feels substantial, like a lightweight suit jacket without arms. When fully buttoned it is not constrictive, and looks fantastic.

The vest was perfect for my event and I see wearing it to other social events as well. I had to get it tailored as it was too large but that was only because there was no time to return it for a medium. Still, I am very pleased with my purchase.

Good quality item, poor size
This is a good quality, well constructed vest. I am disappointed, however, that even though I ordered a Small, I'm still swimming in it (I wear a size 37 jacket). That's just the fault of the supplier that they don't offer an Extra Small. I'll just have to take it to a tailor or add a belt in the back. This is actually just the same vest offered by a few clergy suppliers--it is a clergy vest--but offered at a lower price.

excelent product
I bought this vest for a Steampunk Ball and, with the addition of a few cog on the chest and collar, it was perfect! It has since become a regular part of my Good Suit. It's worth noting that each item of clothing I've purchased from Historical Emporium has been slightly larger than I expected. This is probably due to sizing differences from the States to Australia, but It is something customers should be aware of. I can highly recommend this vest.
