A Historical Emporium Exclusive!

Wearing our Ambassador Vest in Rust, he sought out action rather than attending dull embassy events. In his opinion, tranquility was over-rated and he avoided socializing with the weary and repetitive. A colorful yet classy waistcoat for the Victorian bon vivant!

Admire every dashing detail, from the luxurious silk fabric to the fabric-covered buttons that fasten up the front. The shawl lapel, a rounded front and two inset pockets at the waist replicate the look of a more formal time gone by. The buckle belt in the back allows adjustment for the perfect fit. Available in several colors.

Made from 100% Silk. Imported. Dry clean only. Available in sizes S-3X.

Ambassador Vest Rust
I bought this vest on a whim, it happily being as much as what I'd expected although I did have to get it trimmed by a seamstress. It's great, the paisley pattern and colours are bewitching for which it gets many admiring smiles from strangers and approving comments from those who know me. It's not a garment that would suit a man of small stature, let alone one who's fat, but if you're tall and reasonably slim as I am, on wearing this vest, you become taller than the Statue of Liberty, you make the blitz. Indian people seem to notice it notice it more because of the paisley pattern, one that originated from their culture. I fulsomely recommend this garment, it being perfectly presented by the business that sells it.

Very nice
This vest is very nice and got a lot of compliments. It is a little short in the body, or maybe I'm too tall through the trunk, but it still works pretty good.

As shown
The vest arrived and is well constructed. The Paisley print is very striking, and exactly as represented. I will wear this vest with both Victorian and wild west is a keeper.

Beautiful Vest
Bought this vest for my role as Sir John Middleton in Sense & Sensibility. A gorgeous, well made vest. It complimented my Victorian Cutaway Coat very well. The vest pockets accommodate a pocket watch and chain easily.

not just for costume
I am in management at a large manufacturing facility, this vest is of such high quality, and just flat out CLASS that i will wear as part of my business attire. Also looks awesome over just a v-neck T-shirt, nice jeans and boots. Rock this on a night out if you're a single guy and trust me, you WILL be noticed and approached with compliments on such a unique piece of apparel! Love It! i discovered this sight by accident looking for vest, and this is the first but not the last that i purchased! 2 thumbs way up!

Absolutely The Finest Vintage Era Clothing
I absolutely love the Vintage Era clothing that is offered on this site. The Vests and Shirts are all constructed of the highest quality materials and look great. I like to dress them down with a pair of jeans for weekend casual wear, and dress them up with a suit or sports coat when dress wear is called for special dress occasions. If you enjoy wearing this style of Vintage clothing, then this is the site to get it from. All my items were shipped quickly as promised, and were safely packaged. I plan on ordering other items in the very near future. Five Stars, highly recommend this site.

much better in person than any picture can show you. Its gorgeous and looks very refined. Generously cut, if your tummy protrudes and you up the size beware you man need to have it tailored at the top! :) do not hesitate, if you like it, buy it.

The picture doesn't do this vest justice; when the light hits it, it shines. It was complimented several times over the course of the evening. The tones in the pattern are chocolate brown, black, old gold, and rusty orange. It went just as well with a brown cravat and brown pants as it does with the black pants and cravat in the photo pictured. Lovely quality, and even has spare covered buttons in event of a mishap.
