Excellent quality
I am impressed with the quality of this vest. I was hoping that Iíd get something that I would be able to touch up and use in a few weeks. But this baby arrived in perfect condition! No loose threads, no button holes that are too tight, no problems at all! The fabric makes it so versatile. I wear the vest without a jacket, and I wear it with a suit jacket. No matter how you wear it, it just looks classy!

Great vest
Looks very nice and fits well. I dress in a casual style at work with these style of vest: open, with white shirt, no tie, and black slacks. The only reason for not giving 5-stars would be because the back fastening strap/belt tends to come loose from its buckle and hang down. Easy to fix with a quick tack with threads. They are largely ornamental.

Terrific in every way
I needed this vest for a period-style vaudeville show. It can be difficult to judge how such a stylish vest will look on a large man, so I was a little bit apprehensive. But to my considerable relief it really looks quite good on me (at least my wife says so! And so did the show's director). The vest is made of sturdy, easy maintenance fabric and the subtle floral pattern keeps it understated without being lifeless. In other words, perfect for the stage. I received helpful notifications regarding the processing and shipping of the order and it arrived in a very timely manner. I'm definitely a satisfied customer and I'm sure I'll be back!

Good Quality
This is my second time buying an "Old West" vest for my costume as a "Living History" re-enactment player. The first attempt was at another web site and the sizing turned out to be an educated guess, it didn't fit. At the Emporium the sizing instructions were accurate and it fits perfectly! I also appreciate that I can purchase the components of my character/outfit one at a time and still have that continuity that the whole outfit looks like it was purchased together.

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.

This Vest is Amazing!
Quality is spectacular and the shipping is as if I walked into the store and purchased it, delivery from the west coast was quick like I've never seen. Customer service top notch, size of clothing was as described. Best to get one size larger as with all dress clothes due to the high waist. Best clothing company ever!!

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

Great Vest for Reasonable Price
This is a great quality, great-looking vest. Sewing quality is outstanding. The material is thick and soft. Buttons are quality, too. I normally would fall into the Large sizing, which I ordered initially, but had to re-order a Medium, which fit perfectly.

Historic
Wearing this vest is not only comfortable, but remarkably historic. I have only received compliments when I wore it - everyone has asked me more about it, and I've told them right away about the Emporium. Works superbly with a cravat and a pocket watch. Hopefully, one day, the mainstream fashion can return to this golden age! We can only try.

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.

Great looking and fitting vest
We purchased four of your Drake vests for our barbershop quartet. Since we had some demanding size requirements we were really pleased to have a broad array of sizes with which to work. The vests were well constructed and provided a look of elegance for our members. We are very pleased with our purchase.

Almost perfect
This is a beautiful vest with nice lines. I have not worn it as often as I planned because both welt pockets are stitched in the middle, and though the description suggests they would hold a watch, the remaining gap is too small. Since a fob watch is a common accessory for such a vest, this was disappointing. The vest is otherwise very good. Editor's note: Pockets are sewn shut for transit and can be fully opened with a seam ripper upon receipt.

Drake Vest
I ordered the vest and received it on time and was very pleased with the order. Actually I ordered it from this website and it was just like the picture. The only thing that I have against it that I ordered a large where it fits tight. I think I could have purchased a XL instead. I would like to say to anyone that please know your correct size and if possible order a size up. But after all it accented my suit very well. I thank you Historical Emporium for helping me out.

sizing was big
I sized this according to my chest measurement and found it to be too big. I didn't have time to exchange it so I had a tailor take it in and now it fits better. Be careful with the sizing, and perhaps these run a little big. Take some accurate measurements, talk to the customer service folks, see what they think before you place your order. This looks very handsome, feels a little bit like a costume piece with some of the finishing. Given the price, I wouldn't expect anything to feel like a short cut on this, but I'm only taking one star. Without a coat, this is a really ostentatious waistcoat. Be warned. It's an attention getter. With a coat over top, I get the splashes of gaudiness that I was looking for, lurking beneath a bit of classy modesty. The weight of this is really light, probably the kind of waistcoat you're looking for in warmer climates.

pockets too shallow
This is a good vest; well made from decent materials. Should get 5 stars, but for the pockets. They are way too shallow. Main reason I bought the vest was to accessorize with an antique pocket watch. The standard railroad pocket watch barely fits in the pocket. Another 1/2 to 1 inch depth would make this 5 star.

Have been looking for a well-tailored, high-buttoned vest for a long time. The Buckingham is very well constructed, fully lined mandarin collar vest. Its pockets are deep, and the fabric covered buttons are well made. It feels substantial, like a lightweight suit jacket without arms. When fully buttoned it is not constrictive, and looks fantastic.

This is a good quality, well constructed vest. I am disappointed, however, that even though I ordered a Small, I'm still swimming in it (I wear a size 37 jacket). That's just the fault of the supplier that they don't offer an Extra Small. I'll just have to take it to a tailor or add a belt in the back. This is actually just the same vest offered by a few clergy suppliers--it is a clergy vest--but offered at a lower price.

excelent product
I bought this vest for a Steampunk Ball and, with the addition of a few cog on the chest and collar, it was perfect! It has since become a regular part of my Good Suit. It's worth noting that each item of clothing I've purchased from Historical Emporium has been slightly larger than I expected. This is probably due to sizing differences from the States to Australia, but It is something customers should be aware of. I can highly recommend this vest.

Amazing products from an outstanding company
Once again, great items and first rate customer service, coming through when my horrible local post failed me. I have bought from them before and will continue to do so again.

My husband loves his new vest. The brushed cotton is a very heavy quality material. The vest's short waist makes it very comfortable for daily wear.

Fantastic product!
I am very happy with my purchase. The vest was top-quality, looked great and I wore it as part of a Halloween western get-up. But I think I will be wearing it all the time now!

Just right
I ordered size XL since I wear 46R coat. The vest fits very nicely and looks real good. Quality is outstanding and the service, including packaging, was excellent. I'm very happy with the purchase.

Heavy cotton, feels like armor
Surprised at the heavy weight cotton, less akin to costume wear, more like every day work vest. Buttons are large and tight but will probably loosen up over time.

These Livingston Brushed Vest are always a winner. My actor needed two(2)in Black. Vests were in stock and fit perfect. Thanks to the adjustment strap on back of vest. Always a great feature and so very helpful.

Only one issue
All of the items I have received have met or been above expectation. The only issue is this particular vest is too short for my frame. But I do like the style and quality of it! Respectfully, Nathaniel Branch

I ordered a vest, and I was EXTREMELY happy with the product I received. It was shipped VERY quickly, and it was very high quality. I would absolutely order again from them!

Comfortable and well-made
I am a professional carriage driver and was looking for Victorian period clothing to wear at work. I have absolutely loved this vest. It is constructed of very high-quality material, stitching, etc. It fits me very well. I have a 43-inch chest, and the size Large Livingston vest fits me comfortably and attractively. The only consideration I did not account for was the fact that the brushed cotton material picks up the horse hair easily and I simply keep a lint-roller on-hand to deal with it. I would happily recommend Historical Emporium and this vest to others.

This waistcoat is nothing short of magnificent. I've wanted a white waistcoat for years, and now I have one. One of the amazing things about it it is that the white-on-white brocade has colour-shifting properties that can make the brocade look a pale shade of glacier-blue in the right light. A masterwork.

I have been purchasing form Historical Emporium for several years and have never been anything but completely satisfied with their products or services. I highly recommend them for all your historical product needs.
