This a terrific addition to my formal wardrobe. It fits perfectly and the color is exactly what I wanted. The delivery was rapid and the vest is as advertised. Very good product. I will continue shopping here.

This vest is a fabulous find. The price was reasonable and the fit is perfect. My husband and I are leaders in the Steampunk community and we will be purchasing at least one more in this style.

Excellent product. Fits well. The only drawback is that the vest pockets are too shallow for a large pocket watch - they need to be deeper. Otherwise an excellent and elegant vest.

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!

Simply The Best
An old concept meets new style as The Emporium takes possibly its finest vest and gives it a new look. The double-breasted Cavendish vest is derived from the Walden. And just like the Walden, it has the same handsome appeal, top notch construction and unmatched character. The neutral golden brown color, double breasted front and the herringbone patterned texture immediately enhances any formal or semi-formal attire paired with it. In case you can't tell, I absolutely love this vest and I think you will too.

I bought this as a possible groomsmen vest but instead decided that my father would wear it and it fit perfectly. It's true to size and the quality is impeccable. He tried on one of the cotton vest and liked the softer, less stiff feel of the baker city vest. Thanks!

Rathbone Vest
Excellent quality and fit. The pockets are deep and can accommodate a nice sized pocket watch. It goes down farther over the waist than some of the other styles, fully covering the belt, and the collar is slightly higher. I have bought several vests from these folks and they have all been excellent, but this one looks like it is going to be a favorite.

Top Notch Vest
If there is one person that can attest to the sheer style and quality of vests made by The Emporium, that person would have to be me. I have purchased over a dozen of their fine vests and with each purchase have added a new retropair of style, beauty and character to my entire wardrobe and this vest is no different. The soothing metallic color, herringbone pattern and double breasted front pairs well with any color and any formal or semi-formal attire. Truly another great creation by The Emporium.

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!

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!

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 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 isn't costume quality. It's truly wearable and durable clothing. I'm very impressed with the cut and feel of this vest. The attention to detail on every part -- the stitching, inner lining, and buttons -- is spot on. When I put it on, I felt like wearing it on a normal basis and not just for the costume I was putting together for it. I highly recommend this product. I'll defiantly be back to pick up other items should the quality remain this high.

I recently received my double-breasted vest in the crimson colour, and I have to say, it looks every bit as great as it fits! It feels sturdy and well-made and best of all, I have something I can wear casually as well as to events and conventions with equal aplomb! I may well find myself ordering more of these if the one that I got is any indicator!

Class of the past
My wife was concerned that it seemed stiff. I had to explain to her, this is a working vest, designed for a hard working environment. I showed her some pictures of the time period and she got on board with me and said they had more class and self respect back then. I told her that i do not see any reason we can't have class like that today. So now she likes it, not as much as me, but it is me that wears it, and I like the stiffness of the vest. Gives me a uniform feel to it. With add many years I put in to the military, it makes me feel right at home.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Bancroft Vest
Excellent vest, excellent fit and finish. I saw a past comment about the buttons being too small, this is a period garment and smaller buttons were generally used on what were considered upper class items - this would have been considered evening wear from the 1870's and 90's. Larger buttons being course or cheap. So, yes the buttons are smaller, and not what we are generally used to. Still an excellent and well made garment, a good buy for under $100.

Bancroft Double Breasted Vest
I received the vest quickly. The vest is of decent quality but be aware that it is very tubular in shape I wear an athletic cut and even tightening the adjustment on the back of the vest it was still a bit loose at the waist. If you need the vest for an event be sure that when you are ordering you give yourself time to have alterations made. I will get the vest altered and I am sure I will be quite happy with it for some time.

Great look at a great price. Buy a size bigger than you need, it runs small and I ordered the 3x tall, it was a good thing I did. I'm only 6' tall and this came JUST to the top of my Vigilante pants. The buttons are very flimsy, I'll have to have them tailored on properly, but other than that, this vest is the bomb!

Striking
When I received my medium Bancroft Double Breasted vest, I was disappointed. This disappointment had nothing to do with the quality or look of the vest, both of which were above my expectations, but the fact that the medium ran really large and I was excited upon seeing how handsome it was that I really really really wanted to wear it to work the next day. When I tried it on, I had to cinch the strap in the back to the max and it was still really loose by at least an inch or more. The armholes were also cut for arms much bigger than mine. Needless to say, I returned the item for a small and the Historical Emporium carried out their standard practice of excellent customer service and shortly delivered my small vest, which I am wearing right at this moment at work. I have already received 3 compliments on the quality. Another thing worth mentioning is that I am not a small guy. I am 6' 165lbs with a swimmers body (large upper body, slim torso), so if you have a similar body type, then you may want to order the small.

Simply Amazing
I ordered this after reading all of the positive reviews, but still somehow expecting a problem: wrong size, customer service, shipping time, etc. -- But I cannot explain how impressed I was with everything. The quality was amazing, shipping was fast, and the sizing was perfect. I didn't need to experience the customer service past the initial purchase because it was great. I bought it for a friend of mine as a birthday gift, and I had to watch everyone swoon over his excellent vest that I picked out and purchased. I am making all of personal purchases from Historical Emporium from now on as well as gifts. I could not be happier with my experience.

I've ordered costume pieces from other vendors thst were, on arrival, just costume pieces. The Bancroft double brested vest from Historical Emporium, however, feels and looks authentic, but also is finely made. I'll be back!

as advertised
I ordered mine a bit large and had it locally tailored to fit, which I would recommend. Button holes are a bit small, but that is an easy fix. Only real concern is long term if the cloth covering the buttons snags, there are no spares.

Just as promised
Nicely made, sharp cut to its angles, just as pictured. Took this for a spin at our local pirate fest, with great results. Very sharp layering piece for historical or steampunk applications. Considering the above, this vest in particular spans a number of time periods, allowing great versatility. Buttonholes were sturdy enough to support a watch chain, though I would be careful with the buttons themselves: Being small and light, they are prone to becoming loose if any single one is submitted to strain. Even on my size small, arm holes allowed freedom of movement. Two pockets, both of which are somewhat shallow. They will contain a pocketwatch of fair size, but business cards will protrude by half their length. A solid piece of clothing-grade (not merely costume-grade) apparel.
