Perfection
My chest measurement (46) was on the border, so I needed to be sure. I e-mailed CS and received sound advise going forward with the XL. The Wheat color is correctly presented in photos 2-4. The more yellowish-tint or hue from photo 1 is not a good representation. I fell instantaneously in love, forevermore!

I don't use these for costumes. I wear them for business and always get compliments. They make even a pair of blue jeans or khakis look a bit more dressy. Ladies particularly comment favorably.

canvas double breasted vest
I have previously purchased a number of vests from you. I am a reasonally tall slim guy and it is actually pretty difficult to determine which size to order for vests. I started ordering mediums but they were very loose fitting, particularly the single breasted ones so I have found that size small is actually a pretty good fit and they look very trim on. The double breasted in size small have been just big enough up until this most recent one. I have the exact same one in black and it is a bit firm but fits OK. This wheat one is real tight across the chest( waist is OK and also too small under the arms. I have not returned it as the postage both ways to Australia is more than the vaue of the vest!

This is the third color I have gotten of the Double Breasted Canvas Vest. They are so comfortable and stylish, I can't get enough of them. I wear them more than my other vests, and I mostly wear them as regular street clothes, not costuming.

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!

Even Better
I bought this for a barrel-chested fiddler who is used to wearing reproduction clothing and who is VERY picky about fit & appearance. He performed in it every week-end from Thanksgiving to Christmas and absolutely LOVES it! The colour, the cut, and the finishing is all first-rate. The fabric is exactly what is described - a lightweight canvas - so do not mistake it for dressy. It was perfect for our musician, who was in a mid-19th-century tavern on the waterfront.

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!

Eddie Edwardian
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!

Frontier Suave
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.

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.

Superior in every way
The vest is made from sturdy, heavy weight material. The sewing is excellent. The waist adjustment strap is much sturdier than the normal, cheap vest. The design is comfortable. The vest may seem a little expensive, but quality of materials and workmanship make it an excellent value. B

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.

I've very happy with this item, as I've been with all the fine clothing I've bought here. I do, however, wish that there were 'matching spats" and perhaps a bow-tie to go with so many things I've bought...or at least if they would buy some of the material from wherever they come from and offer it to purchase so I can have the spats made to match. We do want our attire to be coordinated you know.

Middlethorpe Vest - Emerald
I love this vest! I purchased it to use with my formal outfit, and it truly is an exquisite work of art. The paisley adds a hint of sophistication, but there is a subtlety about it that keeps it from coming off as garish or gaudy. The wide lapels are an excellent look for a rather wiry lad like myself, as they seem to make my shoulders appear broader, at least to my eyes. I have a pocket watch, so I was hoping the pockets would be functional so I could wear it with this vest. I was far from disappointed! The product page indicated that the pockets were real, but would likely be sewn shut, which indeed was the case. I easily removed the stitching from the top of each pocket using a seam ripper, and my watch slipped into the pocket without an issue. The chain fastens to the buttons without much difficulty as well, and the chain hanging across the front of the vest adds an extra bit of authenticity and elegance. I paired this vest with the Opulent Paisley Ascot - Black, which has a similar if not identical pattern. The vest and ascot complement each other very nicely, and I am exceedingly pleased with the outcome of my order. I will be sure to purchase from the Emporium again! You can't go wrong with this kind of class!

The vest is great. I wish they had an 3XLT version. The satin could have a smoother satin texture.

Excellent quality and beautiful vest. I received tons of complements. The experience dealing with your company was very good. Keep up the good work. I was hoping to find an ascot to go with it but couldn't find it on your site. Thanks RJ

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.

Funny cut
Most vests have a size adjustment in the small of the back. This one uses button tabs instead. But they are too low. So they tighten in the hips while leaving the belly to sag forward. The vest must be returned.

Gorgeous Vest
A perfect fit. The back and front are of the same cloth and absolutely beautiful. I love the button side adjustments and the button lapels are an outstanding fashion touch. I am a minstrel music performer and this is definitely my new favorite vest.

I wasn't sure if the vest would fit, since I am a plus size, but to my surprise the vest fit perfectly. I love the way the vest looks on me. My wife said the vest make me look snazzy. Good looks, good fit, good selection.
