Perfect cut & fit
This is the perfect everyday vest, I had to get the extra large and Iím glad I did. It fits me perfectly in the pecs and tapers nicely at the waist utilizing the strap in the back to tighten the look. XL fit best, Iím 5í11 broad shouldered at 220. Quality dense fabric gives this an authentic look of a Wild West/Victorian working vest.

Abilene Vest
Historical Emporium has a knack of having a the most unique line of fashionable cloths on the planet. The Abilene vest is one of them. A very well made vest and it looks great. It lends itself to bringing a little class to any function you attend. Personally, I prefer natural fibers with the same backing as the front, longer "tall" versions and front-peaks, and wish that these features be extended throughout many of their lines, but the straight cut work vest also has its place. I highly recommend this vest to anyone who wants to improve their appearance and reputation.

Excellent quality, superb fit
I have decided in my old age to wear vests every chance I get. I bought this one to have a navy blue vest. The quality is excellent. The fit is true to size. I have worn it twice now out into the world and have received many compliments. Highly recommend.

The perfect everyday waist coat
A perfect waistcoat for everyday wear, and also for wearing with a kilt. Nice tailoring, fits well, and is very comfortable. Not quite as stiff as the similar canvas vests (which soften with wearing), a bit lighter, and just a little more formal. Colours go well with many of the shirts available trough Historic Emporium. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

A bit darker but still nice
The item is lovely, I've been wearing it quite a lot in fact. The color of the item was a bit darker in Real Life than it is on the Picture but it doesn't matter much to me. I still love it. and I still love the quality this store gives

Very functional
Great vest, but it's a bit hard to iron the old fashioned way. The pockets make it great for organizing all that crap in your pocket. Watch out for guys who are 44 or 46, as they could go L or XL. I got the tight one, but it helps my back.

Wear it all the time Now
I originally purchased this vest as part of a Victorian outfit to wear at a special occasion, but I like it so much that it's become a regular part of my wardrobe.

Plenty of pockets
I bought this vest for wear mainly as an underlayer to the Model 1876 U.S. Army blouse for Indian Wars reenacting. This blouse has no external pockets (unlike modern military uniforms), and only a single internal pocket. The Abilene vest, worn as an under layer, provides pockets enough for all of the small items which I need to have close to hand when reenacting.

Great looking vest
Great material and color of vest. Picked up a medium and found it to be a good fit with minimal adjustment.

Dark but quality
This vest is darker than it appears, but that doesn't mean you won't have a handsome navy blue tone coming through. It can look black in poor lighting, but most of the time it'll be noticeably blue. Material and buttons are sturdy. I recommend adding a pocket watch to this, especially with a silver chain.
