Perfect, and not heavy at all!
Soft, nice quality velvet, not heavy (like I thought it would be), very comfortable, and looks even better in real life than it does in the pictures!

Quality Product
This vest is perfect for an outfit I am wearing with a vintage "Loden" jacket I recently got from the UK. I was really happy with the great fit, and quality of the waistcoat, and as always, Historical Emporium provided fast, great service on an affordable, quality product. Many thanks!

Love it!
Pretty much exactly what I was expecting. Like previous reviews said, this thing is BLACK, it makes everything else look grey by comparison. Love it!

None more black...
Spinal Tap references aside - this waistcoat is seriously black. Not so much just 'black' as BLACK. It's so black it even provides contrast against other black clothes. It's so black that light bends around it. This is a good thing. Like all of the other Bonaventure waistcoats, the texture of the velvet is is lush, the cut is sharp, the colour is rich and deep, and the internal contrast provided by the bright antiqued buttons and the trim (through texture and sheen) is a strong design feature in and of itself. A highly recommended purchase, and one I wear regularly to work, and casually. It also works as a formal waistcoat, naturally, and is durable as well as attractive. It also has the dual benefit of going with absolutely everything in my wardrobe and immediately raising the tone of anything I wear it with. It is pure class in waistcoat form. You will not be disappointed with this item, believe me.
