A Historical Emporium Exclusive!

Our Penworth Vest in Red makes quite celebratory statement of style. Suitable for grand galas or a private party, this vest will guarantee your good looks.

Our vest is cut from a bolt of richly-appointed floral scroll fabric and is inspired in overall design by an acquisition currently housed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art dating to 1843. Generously sized lapels, a curved bottom hem and double-breasted styling with covered buttons create the buzz and banter of a bygone era. Additional details include two inset pockets at the waist, a full lining and a black acetate back with adjuster buckle.

100% polyester microfiber. Imported. Machine wash cold, delicate cycle, line dry or dry clean. Available in menís sizes S Ė 3X.

See our Penworth Collection for additional colors and matching Ascots.

Minimal tailoring required for own female frame at size small. I have been struggling to find a properly nice waistcoat for some time that wouldn't require a great deal of taking in. This one is wonderful.

Wonderful Period Waistcoat
I bought this waistcoat to wear to an upcoming Dickens-themed event, and I really like it. I originally bought a medium based on the sizing charts, but I had to order a large because the extra length of this waistcoat put the tapered portion of the vest right where the thickest part of my waistline is. Historical Emporium's customer service made buying the large and returning the medium quick and easy! The larger size fits well and is very comfortable, and the pattern matches an outfit my wife will be wearing really well. It's appropriate that the inspiration for this waistcoat comes from an original design from 1843, which is the same year that Charles Dickens published A Christmas Carol - which is my favorite story and a centerpiece of the upcoming event. Thanks again for the great products and top-notch customer service.
