Fashioned from rich satin fabric with a tone-on-tone pattern, this menís vest showcases signature elements from the late 19th century including a double breasted silhouette, generously-sized lapels that button in place, and a curved bottom hem. Two inset pockets sit at the waist and self-covered buttons fasten the front. Self-backed in the same fabric as the front, this vest features button adjusters on each side of the waist.

Shell fabric is 100% polyester microfiber, lining is black acetate. Imported. Dry clean only. Available in sizes S - 4X, this vest is cut longer than our other double-breasted styles, to ensure coverage even without a coat. Offered in several colors.

Great product, runs LARGE
This vest looks GREAT! Bought a large, as I am usually a large. CHECK THEIR SIZING CHART. Not sure why they have these sized so large. Definitely buy one size smaller. My brother is 6', 190 pound athlete. He is always a size large and bought a medium. My brothers and I (3 of us) are all about 6'-6-1 and about 185 pounds. I initially bought a large which was far too big. Return was no problem. I ordered a medium and kept the large until the medium arrived. Medium is perfect!

Absolutely beautiful
This vest is on the lighter side than some of my others, which is what I was hoping for. The brocade vest I frequently wear with my Regency tailcoat is sometimes just too heavy for the weather, so this one comes in handy. The fabric has a bit of a shimmer to it. Seen straight-on it's red and black, however, when seen at a bit of an angle it's black and grey. Very nice :)

Great Vest in all respects
The vest is high quality, and the construction was well thought out. There is a challenge in designing historical type vests in having them look authentic, but not be so thick that they are too hot. Emporium has struck a great balance. The fabric itself is very nice as is the construction and fit.

I think it's lovely...
I ordered the Kendall Vest for my husband because his wardrobe has a distinct shortage of vests. I think this vest looks really good on him. He was a little put out that it wasn't as snug as he'd hoped (at a 39.5", he falls between sizes; the small is too tight, but he feels the medium is a little big. Frankly, I think he's just being picky ^.~) Otherwise, a lovely vest!

My husband wore this vest for his daughters "cowboy" wedding and everyone loved it. It is well made, fit my husband just right and he will wear it for Victorian reinactments. Expedited shipment had it here just when we needed it. This is at least our 10th purchase fron historical emporium and each time we have had great customer service, prompt shipping and high quality wearable garments. Thanks!

Well Designed
I really enjoy this vest. It goes well with "modern attire" and is good for those who like to stand out. I caution that the measurement they give for the vest is exacting. You best add an inch or two when figuring out your size.

perfect except for minor fixes needed.
The pockets in this vest were sewn shut at the factory, but this was easy to fix by cutting the stitches and hand sewing them properly. Unless you are as obese as most people these days, (I have a 30" waist.) it will be necessary to have the vest taken in because it is designed for someone with a pot belly. Still, I highly recommend this vest. It is a blessing that it is available in a man made materiel that does not require boiling caterpillars to death (silk). It is a masterpiece. If you have a pot belly, get off your fundament and start exercising.
