Fine product, but not for me.
Looking for a light weight vest, but this product didn't work in that regard.

Superb Vest
One of my best & favorite vests, this one has a classic vintage color and look. Itís got great functionality with four pockets, and is very durable and built to last. Very pleased!

Looks great, fits fine
Looks great. The Lg fits a tiny bit loose, but then the Med fit a tiny bit snug so I'm in between sizes I guess. I'm going to wear this vest (the Lg) a lot.

My New Favorite Vest!
I chose to exchange my ill-fitting Wahmaker vest with this most excellent Abilene Vest in tan. I could not have made a better choice! This vest fits PERFECTLY and looks great! It's very well made and I'm sure it will last for many years to come. I looked for a long time for just this style of vest, one with a straight cut across the bottom, a lapel, and buttons, not snap closures. I just wish I could find one like that in leather. But really the canvas is just fine! Historical Emporium has come through for me again!

6th HE Vest Purchase
Once Again, the quality and construction of this HE vest are first rate-and the fit is excellent, and runs true to size. This is my sixth, vest purchase from HE because, esp. for the price, you cannot beat their quality or selection. Like all my other HE vests, this one is wonderful as well. The canvas and lining are sturdy and first rate. The color is true to the photos. A note on the buttons: The Abilene Vest is billed and shown as having star-patterned buttons. The buttons on my vest were just plain brass. This is fine with me as it makes the vest more versatile when wearing different fashion styles. However if one really wants the patterned buttons as pictured, it would be best to contact HE and make sure your vest has this feature. Combine this quality vest with HE's usual fine and fast service and, again, I am a very satisfied customer!

great vest for work and play
Love the look, durability and quality of the Abilene vests, I own 2 of them. They are great for work or going out in the evening, offer a great four pocket style with suitably deep top pockets for glasses and cell phone, good lower pockets for keys and pocket watch (Hamilton 992 of course), I love the durable metal buttons, and lastly, I am a conceal carry permit holder and your vests allow me to carry a firearm discreetly which makes both myself and others more comfortable. Thank you Historical Emporium, you will continue to be a supplier to my daily wardrobe!

Very Nice
I am very happy with my Abilene vest. I have had nothing but compliments. It is very well made. I wear it with my modern day suits. I don't think a gentleman is really dressed without a waistcoat! Even when you take your coat off, you still look dressed

Fine, but...
I ordered a 2X vest and it arrived safe and sound. It turned out to be about 1.5 inches short where it does not cover the belt.

The vest did not fit properly. Apparently there were some places on the site that warned of this but I could not find. In fact I had to call to ask about it and the person I spoke to did not advise. It appears as though the return is going to be handled easily and it has been returned. I look forward to doing more business in the future.
