Lightest of 3
I ordered 3 vests simultaneously. This, a Canvas Work Vest, and a Bailey vest. This is the lightest wait of the three which is an advantage when the weather takes a sudden term from near snow to near 90, and looks the most dressy to my eye. Satisfied with fit (though I'd have preferred a long version). Worn a few times so far, no problems.

Umm umm Good!
The photo of the Carlson vest - Brown, does not do its warm, rich, caramelized hue justice. Try to imagine caramel being heated and then poured into a mold in the shape of a vest. This is exactly what you would get. Absolutely delicious! This vest will match quite nicely with nearly any color scheme that shares your wardrobe. It's lightweight fabric can also be worn year round. And it is easily paired with both formal and informal garments. Don't let the inexpensive price fool you. This vest is just as attractive and makes just as much of an impression as does the higher-end vests offered by The Emporium. If you ask me, this is yet another must have for any true Gentleman.

Outstanding article
I love the Brown vest. It fit's well and looks great with my brown suites. Helping me with my own style of dressing as I enjoy the 18th century men's suites. This helps me make an impression on everyone I meet as I conduct my business.

Vest was perfect for my Cuvil War reenactment. Quality was very good and size was just right.

I wish there was a Long Option
I love the quality of this garment. I was right in between the two sizes. The large is fine but even adjusted it is a little bit baggy under the arms. Again, as a taller person with a longer torso, a long option would have been nice thus only 4 stars. Like the other vests, these are cut to wear with high waist pants and suspenders.

I have received my first vest, the Carlson. I am most pleased with it. I was very concerned with a proper fit, but the measuring instructions available in the web site guided me to a perfect fit. I am looking forward to ordering a new vest every month for at least 6 months or so, and a pocket watch, ascots, silk puff ties, etc. etc. Very, very happy with the Gentleman's Emporium!

We used these vests for a wedding (groomsmen) in the mountains. They were just as pictured. Nice fabric, vibrant color and true to size. I received them very fast (3 days) and was very happy with them! Thanks for making the wedding beautiful and our men handsome!

Fabulous Vests!
I ordered 7 of these in various sizes for my daughters Barn Wedding. These vests fit as expected and look even better in person than they do online. The craftsmanship is wonderful and these look very sharp when worn. All of these vests shipped fast and were delivered in perfect condition. I am so happy we chose to place our order with Historical Emporium.

Great vest - perfect for our wedding!
This very nice made vest is perfect for the groom-to-be! With a well-made fabric that lays perfectly and is cut sharp, the vest looks amazing on. The metal buttons accent the color of the vest and look really cool. It has adjustable tabs in the back that are easy to make a better fit. The collar works with a tie and leaves enough of it showing to compliment the wedding colors. Love it! SUPER FAST SHIPPING

Unique Vest
This vest is actually more of a gold than a brown. However that same unique color makes it great to wear with ties or shirts that have some gold in them to make it pop. I really like it but it does get a bit wrinkled by the end of the day hence the 4 stars instead of 5.
