Showman Vest
So far my boyfriend has not worn the vest, it is for a cruise in October. Every year I buy a vest for him from your company and have never been disappointed. Every year on the cruise he always get several compliments on his vests. One year on the cruise this lady got close to him and stated "I always love to see a man in a nice vest"....I laughed and said to myself "this woman thinks she is Mae West....hahaha Anyhow, we are always pleased.

Like the vest. The buttons leave something to be desrired. Two came off very easily and because of their design, can't be fixed to be re-attached to the vest. Will need to look for something else to use for a button. Other than that, very nice.

Beautiful material, great styling. Just now, a 2X fits me in a WAH vest, but a 1X is better for me with this manufacturer. I can get in to an "L", but it's a near thing. The HE staff were infinitely patient with me exchanging sizes until I got the right one.

Showman Vest - gold
The vest is quite showy and looks good, however, it is larger than the typical size category indicates; I bought a small and it was designed more like a medium. Also, the strap in the back only has a limited amount of room to tighten because of how it is sewn: I had to cut those strings blocking it in order to fasten it tight enough to fit. I also had to cut open the pockets displayed on the front, which was tedious. Overall it's not a bad vest but it does come off as cheap.

Good quality, but needs altering
The vest that I bought was a beautiful material, good craftsmanship, and looks just like it's picture. The ONLY problem is, when buying something off a website, you don't get to try it on to see how it fits. Because I am tall and slender, the vest was essentially a beautiful purple tube on me. I had to have it tailored to fit me properly. Don't get me wrong though... I will most likely being making future purchases from this site. They have a great selection!

Purple vest
The product looks impressive but I found it stiff and not a silky feeling as I am used to. Also your sizing is very large. I ordered a small which is usual for vests but easily used an xs. As was I ended up having it tailored to the appropriate size and even the people in the shop thought it was mis-sized. But now it does look good.

Showman Vest - purple
The vest looked great, however, the back strap was sewn with a very limited amount of room to tighten: I had to remove those strands in order to tighten the vest further. Also, the size category is not that accurate: I ordered a small and it fit more like a medium. The pockets were also sewn shut, which I've always found tedious because then you have to cut it yourself, and there's a chance you could damage the fabric. Overall, I love the appearance but it does feel cheap.

Silver color is bright metallic
For a silver vest, the Klondike, the Montgomery, or the Showman all appeared to be quite similar so I based my decision just on the pattern visible in the closeup photos -- I liked this pattern best. What I did not see from the photos was that this Showman vest is VERY metallic silver. I believe the others might be more satiny (which was what I imagined) rather than metallic. It's still a very nice vest, well made and the right fit, and I will still wear it -- but it's a bit "louder" than I was expecting.

Sweet!
I really like the look of this tie. Though I've not worn it out of the house yet, My wife finds it very attractive. I was pleasantly surprised when the "diamond" pin came with it, which sets it off well. For an "all black" ensemble, this is a very good part of the kit.

I ordered this and several other items for my daughter's upcoming wedding. The entire package arrived several days earlier than expected, and I was skeptical of the purchase, but once receiving all the items I realized the material quality was high the fit was perfect and the price was great. I could not have bought a suit for the same price. I am amazed at the outstanding customer service from historical Emporium. I even had to change my pants size day after I ordered and it was corrected and I received the proper fit.

All their puff ties are fabulous. So far, every one I have bought has come with the tie pin. Well made enough to dress any outfit, inexpensive enough to have a rainbow of selections. There is a little tab of fabric under the 'fall' of the tie, where you see the tie pin. It helps you stick the pin in and hold the ends up as puffy as you would like to make it. Excellent value for the price!

I prefer the look of the Floppy Bow Tie on a regular wear basis. This Tie also makes a statement and when worn with white shirts is quite attractive. I might shorten the "arms" just a bit to "balance" the look - my opinion - a bit better.

I told my wife that I was getting this tie to go with my Farnsworth vest and wing collar shirt. She rolled her eyes and muttered, ďDear lord. You want to look like Colonel Sanders.Ē I took that to mean that she wholeheartedly approved of my choice. That was my misunderstanding. However, when everything arrived and I put it on, she did approve! Not only did she approve, she started naming all the places and events where I can wear it! Itís the small moments in marriage that build a lifetime of fun. Donít take yourself too seriously! Have some fun, even if other people think youíre silly!

My husband is obsessed with the old time cowboy look and just had to have this tie. We live in the mountains of Colorado, all cowboy and ranch country, he wore it the first time to our small country church, white shirt, black vest, big black cowboy hat....swore he looked like the preacher himself. Made the outfit very distinguished. Everyone loved it.

Ready for the Open Range
This is just the start of my western ensemble. An "urban cowboy" now, I was raised country, with work boots, slopping the hogs, and a simpler life that I really miss today. Historical Emporium brought back a sense of those days with this cotton neckerchief. Often confused for a bandanna, the cowboy neckerchief was a larger and sturdier bit of gear. Like the shemagh, it has a large number of uses, from shade in the summer to warmth in the winter. Big enough to pull over your nose, it hides the highwayman's identity, but could just as easily keep sand out of your snooter on a dusty trail. Since I've gotten this fine piece of fashion, I've worn it just about everywhere (I'm at the age where I honestly don't care what anybody thinks) and have had several questions about it and even a few compliments. So, I'm a fan of both this neckerchief and Historical Emporium. I look forward to my next purchase!
