Audaciously in charge, our Cavalier Vest creates an aristocratic and dramatic touch to your most elegant ensemble.

With a shape once seen on officers of the military, this menís vest is given a twist with a large-scale paisley print in bold shades of red on a black background. Cut from a rich tapestry fabric on the front, our waistcoat features a black satin lining and back that ties with belting. The double-breasted, flat front features engraved metal buttons each bearing a lionís crest. The stand collar and over-sized lapels add additional era-specific detailing, not to mention more than a dollop of drama. Alas, no pockets.

Fashioned from a blend of 55% viscose and 45% polyester with 100% rayon back and lining. Made in the USA. Dry clean only. Available in menís sizes S-2X. Offered in several colors.

Elegant and refined
Purchased with plans to attend a formal ball, this waistcoat is a sheer delight to wear. Perfectly cut and suited to the highest levels of formality of the time, it is magnificent.

Absolutely Does the Job!
An incredible Regency Period style vest. Excellent quality with excellent fit. One of the most expensive I think that Historical Emporium offers, but worth the money. You get what you pay for. I work as a professional historical tour guide in the Baltimore/Washington, DC area and have already received many compliments on it during the course of my rounds. Certainly not my last purchase from Historical Emporium!

Great Product
We got this for our son for his birthday. It was soooo worth it when he opened it and the look on his face. He kept it on and studied the quality of the vest and continued to point out to us how great it was made. Even in these times of "cutting back" on quality to increase profit, this company did not follow the trend and instead put out a quality product! We thank you for that and the look on his face!

I almost cried!
After buying the trousers (Pants) and frilly shirt some time ago I was looking for something loud and thought the Cavalier Waistcoat (Vest) might just do the job. I am not in an historical club or do I have a thing about historical clothing but I feel this is the sort of clothing one should be seen in on any special occasion. Anyone can wear fashion and most people do and that is why they look so very mediocre! before the shirt and trousers came I was somewhat apprehensive about the fit although trousers tend to fit when the waist mesurement is right and shirts are generally good if the cut isn't a tight one. With the Waistcoat, due to bad experience I was really worried. Will it be too short?, too tight?, too loose? or does it, because of my not too streamline figur, look too stupid?! Well, I took it out of the parcel, took off my sweat shirt and whilst only in a T shirt I put it on. I knew, from this moment on, this wanderful piece of clothing was going to be my number one of all time! It fitted so well I almost cried and to help me not do so I had a single malt Whisky!!! Or was it three? By the way Fashion comes and goes Quality doesn't!. You do not need to go back in time to wear quality clothing! Thank you Historical Imporium!!! Graham M. Ellis P.S. I'll be back!

The cavalier vest was absolutely beautiful! I couldn't even wait till Christmas to give it to my husband; he got it a week early. The size ran true; it fit him perfectly. He really liked it too; the only downside is it didn't have a watch pocket. But that was the style of the period piece; not a design flaw. I was very satisfied with this product.

The devil is in the details
I like the pattern and design of these double breasted vests so much that I purchased several in different colors. You don't see anything much like them on the market today. My only disappointments are that I like to sport a pocket watch when I get dressed up and these vests don't have pockets of any sort. Also, the added touch of a buckle on the back strap would have been nice. Two details that seem to have fallen by the wayside in the name of cost savings. I give this vest 4 out of five stars.

Just as described and came quickly. This was chosen for the groom at our wedding and it is perfect. Thanks so much! We loved it so much that we got two more for my sons who are also in the wedding.
