Very Pleased
The last night of a planned overseas vacation, we will be celebrating our anniversary at a fairly posh restaurant in London. They absolutely require men in long sleeves and would like a tie and jacket. Not wanting to lug a jacket all over England, I purchased this herringbone vest for him. With dress pants and a bold tie, the vest turns from Old West to English Country Gentleman. We are pleased with the construction and the color.

Solid everyday wear
I fell in love with the four-pocket canvas worker vests, but eventually realized that I needed something more elegant, but still casual enough for everyday wear. This is perfect for just hanging out, getting things done, stopping for a cuppa, or a casual supper.

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!

Expedited shipment had it here just when we needed it.

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.
Aug 14, 2015
Sam

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.

This waistcoat always receives compliments when I wear it - it looks very fine indeed and fits well; and the tone-on-tone texture is another standout of its appearance. A very fine summer-weight dress waistcoat I think looks equally good paired with either a black or a burgundy coat.

Instead of a blazer
Bought this to use instead of a blazer. I have large arms and a suit coat that fits my arms will be huge in the middle unless I have significant tailoring done. This was a great option! The size chart was on point, the vest fit perfectly and looks great! The materials are all high quality and it feels so much more substantial than I thought it would. The vest came in a long which is nice as I have a long torso. Definitely 5 Stars!

Buford gray tweed vest
My favourite vest so far. I knew when I was purchasing this vest that it had the herringbone pattern, which gives it a very nice look. I ordered a 2x tall which works wonderfully for me. The only down side has been that the lining is leaving black lint on my white shirts which the dry cleaners has to fight to remove. Otherwise awesome vest.

Great Vest!
This is a well made vest. The material is a heavy duty cotton and feels like very soft canvas. I gave it 4 stars only because of the plastic buttons. They are heavy duty buttons, but I would have paid more money for a vest with buttons that were more period correct (such as wood or another natural material). Also, the tag on the vest says "Gunslinger Vest" and the brand on the label is Frontier Classics. So it is designed as a western style vest. I was wanting something in a Victorian style to wear with my bowler hat, but it will also go well with my western hat. I ordered a size Large and it fits true to size. I wear a size 42 suit and it was a little big, but was able to adjust it down to my size with the tab belt on the back. Plenty of pockets.

THE USUAL HIGH PRAISE
I have purchase numerous shirts, pants ,and vests prior to this purchase. Every piece of clothing has been sized correctly, very well made, and of excellent materials. This vest is no exception to that praise. The shipping service was incredibly fast this time. I do not hesitate to recomend this company and their wares and have numerous times to numerous people. I am a Single Action Shooter Society competitor ( Cowboy action shooting ) . All of the clothing has survived long rugged wear on the shooting range and a great deal of physical activity, with little or no signs of wear. When I want period correct clothing there is no other choice, in my mind -- HISTORIC EMPORIUM

Wearing this vest is not only comfortable, but remarkably historic.

Just what we needed for our wedding.
We were looking for a vest for my (now) husband. We finally found the right one on the site. We bought 2 sizes as we didn't know which would fit best. We chose the smaller one and returned the larger one. We had a family member take in the vest a bit because it was still a little big, but there is no way my husband would be comfortable in the next size down. All in all the vest was just what he was looking for and he looked great at our wedding!

Nice Earth tone
I really like how this can fit into almost any earth tone outfit. Works with tans, olives and browns. The only drawback is the shorter "gunslinger" flat front doesn't work on me as well. However it seems to be very sturdy with strong buttons.

Purchased this for a party and it came within a week. Great materiel and cut. I bought it big because other vests I have purchased came small. This one was exactly what they said it was going to be.

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.

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!

Twin-City black vest
The Twin-City Vest in black is stunning, and whilst light weight, is of quality workmanship. The self pattern is striking but subtle making it a stand out vest in my gentlemen's attire. I am very happy with the product

Best Vest
Love this Twin City Vest in black. Looks so classy with both my black silk puff tie and the grey silk puff tie. Intend on buying the Twin City Vest in grey, in future as well.

Twin City Very Nice
The fabric patterning is much more visible in person and the overall quality is good for the price. The vest does fit a bit snuggly at the largest part of the belly. We did measure and purchase for the appropriate size and he is on the low end of the sizing for the size we purchased. Other than that love the item.

Nice Vest Sizing not Right
The vest is very nice, and well made. However, the sizing is not quite right. I measured my waist and belly, and based on that I got a Large. Turns out I should have gotten an XL. I think you need to revise your measuring chart, as this inaccuracy cost me a button which popped the first time wearing it.

Versatile item
A good value for the price. The vest is typical of the second half of the 19th century. It can dress a honest family man, a fancy clergyman, a black hat cowboy, or a greedy capitalist. The construction is lighter than what is was then, but it makes it more comfortable and not too warm. lI have worn it recently at a traditional Xmas party with a red tartan bow tie and it was a success.

Sorry to say...
I received the vest in record time. No issues with customer service, or the order process. I tried the vest on and hated it. You see, I'm going to a wedding and I wanted something different. I felt that the over look of the product was cheap. So.....sent it back yesterday. I will continue to use your shop...just not that vest. Thanks.

I sew - so I know fabrics. This fabric was not the quality I hoped for. Other wise - It's OK.

Very Nice!
Excellent quality for the price. Received in a very timely manner. The only down side is that it is a little tighter across the chest than other vests I have ordered that were listed as the same size. If you are between sizes, you might be much better off ordering the next size larger.

Very Attractive Vest
This is a nice looking and well made vest. I ordered by the measurements and the first one was too small for my husband. I re-ordered and sent the first one back as a return. The transaction and refund were quick. The only problem is that paying all the shipping both ways is a little costly.

Classy and sexy
I absolutely love this vest/waistcoat and so does my girlfriend! It is great for a formal look but equally attractive with jeans for a more casual artsy look. The fit is perfect and the quality is top notch. I give it four thumbs up (two of the thumbs belong to my girlfriend)! Thanks Historical Emporium!
