Looks great! Looking forward to getting a lot of wear out of it this winter.

I was underprepared for just how thick and durable this vest was going to be. It really is a thick canvas material and pairs well with canvas trousers for a formal look that is still functional for work. Do not recommend wearing this on a hot day though, it is seriously a thick fabric. The fabric is so thick I struggle to get my US Marshal badge through the fabric for my cosplay XD!

Love this vest!
It's a heavier, thicker vest with a straight cut and round bottom. The fit was almost perfect, and I keep getting complimented on it. I may need to find a 'reason' to purchase another.

Very impressed
I had been trying to source vests in Australia for a number of months with no luck. I found Historical Emporium by pure chance and decided to give them a go. I ordered this vest along with Humboldt Stripe Vest and Classic Canvas Work Vest - Black in a single order as the three with shipping from the States was still more reasonable than anything that I'd been able to find in Australia. I had deliberately ordered a size up to be safe and on arrival I was very impressed with the quality, style and the time that the vests took to jump the puddle from the US. My tailor when I went to have them taken in (yes I probably should have trusted the sizing listed) also commented on the quality and styling; when measuring and after making the adjustments. Thank you very much (and yes I've now ordered additional vests), highly recommend both the service and product. I'll be back again.

Dashing in 1830 California
I had a dual purpose for ordering this vest. First, I am a volunteer with the California State Park System at Monterey State Historic Park in Monterey, California. I help to put on a program called "Hands On" which teaches 4th grade students about life in early Alta California in the 1830's. One of the "tasks" I teach the children is branding cattle. I already had this vest in tan canvas, but it was always getting sooty from the branding iron fires. I didn't want to eventually ruin that one with multiple washings, so I ordered this vest to show less ash and soot during a week's presentations. Secondly, I am also a Civil War reenactor and this vest will be often worn with my Confederate Marine officer's uniform when it's too hot to wear my wool vest under my wool frock coat, or at a period ball when I want to be just a bit more formal in my Southern gentleman and officer portrayal.

Excellent Canvas Waistcoat
This is a very well-made piece, suitable for real work or for wearing almost anywhere. It's not a costume piece by any means. It's fairly heavy, but it never feels hot or restricting. This is my second waistcoat from Historical Emporium, and I'll be getting another soon: I'm getting into the habit of wearing one almost every day!

Amazing quality and workmanship. this is my fourth order from them and I am never let down. This vest will last for years if not generations. It does run a touch on the larger size. I buy for stage productions and they get quite a beating. but these are well beyond stage quality and will fit nicely into any wardrobe.

Searching for Edwardian clothing in support of a significant competitive production, Historical Emporium clearly has a corner on the market. The vest choices were almost overwhelming but, by process of elimination, we finally settled on this brown, double breasted version. Love the styling, the double row of buttons, pockets, feel, and square at the waistline. More elegant to see and wear than the description. Excellent choice!

Got it for my adult son for Christmas, he's decided he likes vests now for every day wear. I think he wants to become a hobbit. Anyhoo, it was delivered in timely fashion, as ordered, and I asked him how it is and he said "frontier suave". He likes it! He picked it out himself from the on line catalog and forwarded the order form to me, ready to submit. Everything worked slick! I've never even seen it yet, but I'm satisfied.

Canvas Double Breasted Vest - Crimson
Not as red as it looks in person. It's more of a dark burgundy/brown colour. Which is more authentic to the era and the more practical nature of it. But otherwise looks and feels fantastic. Has bronze buttons which are easy to do up and undo. Best way to do it is the left vertical row first then the right.

Vest Fit
The quality of workmanship is excellent. I love the look. I'm 5'10 and about 175 pounds and the medium fit well except for one place, the arm pits. I really love this vest yet the arm hole size makes it almost unwearable. I don't have big arms and a large would have been way too big everywhere else. I can still wear it but it is quite tight. Other vests I've bought from you are not like this. You might want to mention this fact to whoever makes these for you. I understand that the world is not perfect and things like this happen. I still love it and might pay to have it altered in the future. Thank you, Dedicated Customer.

An excellent addition to my wardrobe
I originally found this when I was looking for some accessories to go with a hat I'd found at goodwill. Unfortunately, it wasnt as good a color match as I'd hoped, but this is not a bad thing! The vest is comfortable, lightweight, and durable enough to wear while doing blue collar work. I'm now going out and looking for shirts, ties, and other accessories to showcase my new vest. I'd particularly recommend pairing this vest with any of the canvas pants Historical Emporium sells. Even if it's a different color, the matching fabric type helps to pull the whole thing together (and the crimson of the vest is a bit saddened, so it's a decent neutral color to build a palette around).

Great waistcoat, but there's a catch.
The waistcoat is of excellent construction, very durable, and pretty to look at. However, as others have noted, it IS a bit on the high waisted side. Me and the person I ordered it for share the same chest measurement, yet while it fits my 5'10" frame well, when he, being 6'1" wears it, there is a visible 1.5" gap between the waist of his pants and the hem of the vest. This is no strike against the vest itself, as it is of excellent quality, but if it could be made a BIT taller, it would have been perfect. Still looks good as the finishing touch on his War Doctor cosplay :) Thank you!

I ordered this Bancroft Double Breasted Vest to complete an ensemble for an "All White Dress Up" affair. The event is Diner en Blanc held in cities throughout the U.S. and Internationally which requires all attendees to wear all white for an all white surprise group picnic dinner at a secret location. The affair is to be treated as elegant thus the need for the Brancroft Double Breasted Vest. My only wish is that it would have been available in white as cream as ordered was the only color offered in this style that was close to white.

The 1880's
Purchased another vest. This one was the green penworth Paisley design. I am retired and a professional tour guide in St. Augustine, Florida for fun. I portray the great Henry Flagler which is the father of tourism in my state. I've purchased many items from Historical Emporium and they fit the bill for my portrayal perfectly. Everything I've purchased has fit and the quality is terrific.

I've received a few items from you guys now and must say, everything about your company is deeply satisfactory. The quality of the products is beyond reproach, speed of delivery is astounding seeing as I live in Tasmania, and the prices are far lower than the quality would suggest. The only thing that's killing about this waistcoat is that I have to wait five months to be able to wear it at my wedding.... seriously, it's killing me! I'll be wearing it plenty afterwards!

I was eager to get this waistcoat in this style and ordered the large as the medium was not available at the time. As much as I'd have liked to have kept it, it was simply too large. However, I was able to send it back and was given a full refund my GE. If not for it's size I would have happily worn it.

Great vest, but could be even better
This is an exceptionally sharp vest, and I have gotten many compliments on it. Also, I was quite pleased to find that it *IS* long enough to wear with modern pants! Despite the posted sizing note that back length is ~22", the back seam on my medium measures 23.5", and the curved bottom hem of the front hangs down about 2.5" below that when it's on its hanger. I'm quite glad of the extra length, and have found that I can even wear it with my modern Levi's. So why did I dock it a star? Well, there are a few things I would tweak on the design: 1) The back, as stated in the item description, is made of acetate. I would have preferred it to be more of the awesome front fabric (or at least a heavier satin). 2) The pockets are rather shallow, and there is room to have made them a bit deeper. 3) I would have preferred slightly larger buttons. It's still an awesome vest, it's just got room for improvement.

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.

Very nice vest
I got this vest mostly because I needed a strapless vest that I could wear without having to constantly readjust it throughout the day. Once I got this vest I really liked the texture of the fabric, the style of the front (particularly the double breasted button pattern), and the ease of fit and use. Definitely got a lot of complements and the price point seemed very reasonable for a vest like this, so I'd recommend it for anyone like me who likes to have a bit of formal wear that isn't too much of a hassle to use.

Outstanding Quality
If there is anything at all to the adage, "The clothes make the man.", then THIS vest is probably what inspired it: the fit, finish, and quality of this garment is so far beyond my admittedly high expectations. The subtle jacquard pattern is very complementary with the red silk " puff" tie I also ordered. And the black-on-black striped lining is sadly unseen by anyone but the wearer. I've never owned a piece of clothing that fit so well, nor is more flattering to me. If you don't own one of these, you most definitely SHOULD!

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.

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.
