loose fit
i am a bit disappointed that the fit of the vest is not as represented in the photo. The photo shows a nicely tapered fit, although the actual cut is much more straight and becomes too loose at the waist. There is a buckle in the lower back for taking up some of the extra material, but it becomes much to bunchy in the back when the front looks better. The canvas material will also take some working in so it feels more supple.

Great Canvas!
This is an excellent vest. Great 1800's style and has a stiffer lining that doesn't wrinkle as badly as some canvas garments do.

High quality clothing
This is a great looking, well-made vest that is both "pretty and practical." It's a nice deep black (although being canvas, I would expect it to fade a bit with wear and time; we'll see). Plenty of pockets, sturdy fabric, easy care -- just a nice article of clothing that would look as good with a pair of jeans as it does with a victorian costume. We got an XL Tall for my 5'11" husband -- this style is quite short in the torso, typical of the era it represents, and if you have any sort of a belly, it seems like the regular length doesn't quite meet even a high-waisted trouser. The longer length solves this really nicely, so it's a good option for the wider among us as well as the taller! ;-)

Awesome Classic Vest
Wonderful vest, great fit. Shipping time is amazing, its almost as if I ordered and it was dropped at the door. Can't believe how quick shipping is from this wonderful company. Price to quality is amazing, its as if it was priced back in that era because its very well made and the price is super low for what you get. Will be ordering lots more, just have so many things to choose from. Thanks again for the wonderful clothing and quick shipping!!

For Real
My Granddad was a road engineer who was also a prospector. Although his vest was really a mess when we dug it out, this working vest is as close as anyone is going to get to the feel of daily wear of the last part of the 19th century and the first part of the 20th. Because I have a long torso and knew the shirt I was going to wear with this vest was a bartender blouse, I ordered a 3X tall, but normally I would use a 2XT. This gives me plenty of room to carry a small pistol (fake) inside the vest, as well as accommodating the frilly bartender's blouse. Really nice workmanship at a reasonable price.

Awesome Vest
Having ordered from other vendors, when I receive packages, I try to temper my expectations and generally prepare myself to be disappointed. But when I opened my HE packages, I was ecstatically surprised! All I can say is WOW!! You guys are phenomenal! The style, quality, fit, packaging, shipping, customer service... everything has been simply fantastic! I am very proud to be an official new customer! Actually, I have to say the style, quality, and fit of your clothes is superior to my daily modern clothes and I think I'm going to see where i can reasonably swap out your garments for my modern ones. So, I may have another order soon! HAHA! I cannot say enough good things! Although the vest was special order, the vest arrived within a day of the other items. I was expecting a much greater delay and was extremely surprised! Also, Customer Service was very responsive in answering my questions about availability, etc. The other huge factor that is very impressive is your fitting directions! They were dead- on and turned out perfectly! I was worried about having to go back and forth to find the right size... but you nailed it! Your care and effort are greatly appreciated!! THANK YOU!

Dapper Dude
I bought the black Classic Canvas Work Vest a couple of year ago. Love it! While browsing and searching the website recently, I found the (brown) Walnut version. Now, I can coordinate with my black hats and western boots or my brown hats and western boots. The vests look great with jeans. When wearing it, I prefer to button the top button on my shirt, also. It creates cleaner lines, looking good with either short point button-downs or plain collars. Chambray shirts, plaid, striped, or solid oxfords blend well, yielding results ranging from rugged looks to downright dapper. Occasionally, I add a bolo tie. The options are numerous. The fit is excellent. Construction appears to be durable and well-finished. I like the liner inside. Canvas fabric is a nice weight. The pockets are quite handy. The notched collar adds a special touch. I get lots of notice and positive comments regardless of the color -- from people of all ages. Simply put, the Classic Canvas Work Vest is a functional, comfortable, stylish, well-made garment that I enjoy wearing. It's one of those things that makes me feel good to wear it. I look forward to wearing my vests for years to come.

Canvas Work Vest
The quality and workmanship on the vest are outstanding however I have a 41" chest and the medium was too tight to breath comfortably while sitting down and the large is more like an extra large with over 4" of overlap in the front which makes the arm holes protrude forward in a very noticeable way. There needs to be a size in between for this vest. Unfortunately this vest simply does not fit me.

Sturdy Quality
This 'duck' vest is sturdy, handsome and practical. Certainly not a cheesy costume piece. Purchased for general use/wear, I expect it will serve a very long time given the quality of the materials and the usefulness of the pockets. Very pleased that it comes in a 'tall' version, the fit is just right on my 6'1" frame.

Believe the tape
I've had this vest for a month and I'm very satisfied. High quality construction in tough, heavy canvas. A word about size. I had to send back my first vest because it was too big. I ordered the size that corresponded to a 50, the size I get for suits or sports coats. What I forgot is that's the size that fits at the shoulders then they take it in from there. A vest doesn't have shoulders. When I re-ordered, I went to Wal-mart, bought a tape for $2, measured like they said to in the instructions and ordered that size. It fit perfectly. So my advice? Don't guess. Get a tape. Measure with the tape. Believe the tape. Order what the tape says. A word about pockets. I wear this almost daily as a real work vest and, like others here, I wish it had inside pockets for a phone and/or wallet. It doesn't, so we'll deal with it. I ordered pants to go with the vest and when I took them to be hemmed, I asked the seamstress if she could make inside pockets for me. She was happy to, and since the vest is fully lined, she was able to easily do so with nothing showing from the outside. Looks great. She charged me $20 for the pockets, which I don't if that seems a good deal to you but was worth every penny for me. Buy with confidence.

Great Quality and Price
This is my second purchase from HE, and I'm as pleased this time as the first. The vest is a "sturdy" weight canvas (love it), and very well made. I bought a XXL and the size is perfect for my big torso. My only regret is that I didn't order this as a "Long". It comes right to my waist (what it is intended to do), but being a "big guy" I prefer something that extends below my belt-line a bit. The added 2" in the long version would make this perfect for me. However, I'm NOT going to return it, because it will inspire me to lose a few pounds. Shipping was next day (WOW!!!!), and the price is UNBEATABLE! I will be buying more from this company.

Very good
I already have the walnut work vest, so I had that to compare to my new olive work vest. Since the green one is brushed, it has a softer feel than the walnut. It still has a strong feel with good stitching. It will go great with my new frock coat!

Too Short
The Olive Canvas Work vest is the same quality of the other vest I have bought, with one HUGE EXCEPTION. The vest is TOO SHORT. You need to make this vest in TALL, without exception. Very nice vest, and I will wear it with my suspender trousers, but with nothing else. It is just too short. MAKE IT LONGER, and I will buy three of them.

Building the collection
I purchased two vests for my husband after he declared his love of the vest we purchased here for him to wear at our wedding. He was generally pleased with both vests and we will keep them. The only thing we we were a bit disappointed with was that both vests gap around the front armholes - there was too much fabric in the chest area which is easily remedied. Both vests also seemed somewhat short - he would have liked them a bit longer. Other than those two issues he is very pleased. Thank you!

Appears to be a quality constructed garment of quality materials. Only suggestion would be to tailor the length longer, especially in XL and XXL. It's a little too short in XXL, otherwise it is a five star garment fairly priced. I will be purchasing more items in the near future. Glad you are out there in the market place.

A practical item
I usually take a "short" in a jacket or coat, but I ordered the "long" because I thought the regular looked a bit too short. I'm glad I did because I like longer vests. I also ordered the large although I normally take a medium shirt -- pay attention to the sizing chart. The large let out all the way is a good fit for me, but one size smaller would have been way too small. Perhaps it is my monitor, but the vest is not the bright yellow shown, but a dull brownish yellow or "wheat" color that you'd expect canvass to be. The canvass is somewhat stiff and was hard to button, but once buttoned, it stays buttoned. I washed some of the stiffness out and expect it to get softer with repeated wearing and washings. It did not shrink in the washing, but I was careful to use cold water. I like the vest very much and wear it daily for warmth and to protect my shirt from getting dirty around horses and snagged on things, but it is indeed an outdoor work vest and not a dress item (I have wool vests for that). I especially like the four pockets and their placements. I have pretty much stopped wearing my watch on my wrist and keep it in one of the pockets instead and my keys are easier to get to if in a vest pocket rather than in my pants pocket. Being cotton canvas, there is no doubt it will stain and so I'm careful not to wear it around grease and oil and other products which will permanently stain cotton.

Canvas Work Vest Wheat
This is a cool vest. I wear suspenders with all my trousers and I thought this would be a nice casual vest with my "emporium" trousers, and other casual pants in my closet...chinos, blue jeans, etc. A vest made with washable cotton fabric is almost impossible to find anywhere but this "emporium". I really like the square cut along the waist and the cotton lining (instead of satin) which is also very hard to find elsewhere. I'm usually a perfect medium, but this vest is a little roomy. If I pull the back adjuster all the way, it fits.....the small would probably be a little too snug for me. I like this vest....ordered one in black too!

The best-dressed young lady in my local Art Scene spotted my new vest immediately and complimented my Fall Colors! This waistcoat is washable, durable, no-nonsense~ yet perfect Steampunk-design... it seems droopy around the ribs when you take it out of the box, but when you put your pocketwatch,tapemeasure and businesscards in the pockets it comes together perfectly!

Definitely a Classic
I recently purchased the Classic Canvas Work Vest in crimson color and was immediately impresses by it. It is probably my favorite vest now, which I own many different types of work and dress vests from the 1880's period of clothing. The materials and workmanship are of the highest quality, and the styling is really nice too. I really like the buttons used on this vest, as I am partial to metal buttons. Even though it is classified as a "work" vest, it is as nice as my "dress" vests! I highly recommend this vest if you are looking for a durable, yet "dressy" vest. Sincerely, Doc

Excellent canvas vest in Burgundy. My last one I outgrew was double breasted, but I prefer this single breasted version. All four pockets work and it is the same canvas front to back, so it still looks good without the coat on. Fits true to size and is easy to clean stains from the canvas with cold water. Great for Victorian London, Western, and Halfling uses! Looks great with a watch chain, I love it!

This Vest Will Make You Look Good - Guaranteed
I needed some western themed garb for a promo I was shooting. I ordered this and the Walnut Classic Canvas Duster. Together with a bandana, a hat, and a pocket watch, it transformed my actor into a genuine looking cowboy. Wouldn't have looked nearly as good without this vest! The build quality is amazing - especially the stitching - and it stands up to all-day shooting and multiple machine washes without wrinkling or pilling (did not machine dry - hung to dry). The buttons are great quality and sewn to the material well, so I'm not worried about one popping off. Even better, the buttons on the duster match the ones on this vest for a very finished look. I highly recommend this as a wardrobe item for film, video, or any other venture in which you might need western wear. Very impressed, 5 out of 5!

This vest is well made and looks fantastic. My only issue was the sizing , the 3x was a bit large around the arm holes. No big problem, my wife gets a chance to try out her new sewing machine . Next time I will try the 2x but I will definitely be buying here again.

My 5th Vest/Waistcoat
I am now the proud wearer of 5 Emporium waistcoats; not all at the same time of course ;) Two wool and three canvas. And I am totally satisfied with each of them. The color is advertised as "Crimson"... not being familiar with crimson, I see it as a unique red-brown rusty color. I like the way the color reflects light! ! I am looking forward to Emporium having an all wool, pinstripe, vest.

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!

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.

Handsome more help on the sizing chart would be appreciated. I think men are getting bigger (sorry) and so what used to be a med could be a large? Anyway it was a birthday gift much appreciated.

I purchased this vest with the hope of being able to wear it outside of costuming. I am not disappointed, the fit and finish on the vest is great and assume it will hold up as any garment should. Thanks for great product.

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!

Quality product
This is a great vest, it looks nice and is made from high quality fabric. Unfortunately the vest was extremely large in the chest area, while it actually fits well around the waist. Therefore alteration was needed, which was not quite cheap.

PERFECT!
What can I say? This item is PERFECT! It's so very rare that I find a nice Victorian/western style vest that not only looks great, but fits well. This is all of that. Beautifully made, and highly recommended, and unlike the more expensive Victorian vests you find at Halloween stores, and various costume shops... this vest has REAL pockets! This vest works for me on multiple levels too... for my Victorian garb, my western garb, and even worn with my modern day suit. It makes my two piece into a three piece that is quite dashing, and it's so well made, I won't worry about it ever wearing out. Highly HIGHLY recommended.
