Impressive Quality
Top notch vest! Looks great as indian wars era cowboy action gettup. Quality product very well made. Looks so good I'm wearing it on sundays also. I wear XL in canvas vests to fit shoulders then they fit my belly loose, but the cut on this vest is perfect.

WOW
So much more than I expected! I thought my other Frontier Classics vests from Historical Emporium were tops, but this one stands out. Large vests are to snug on my belly, extra larges is what I wear with the adjustment belt in back snugged up some, but the Buchanan vest is just right in extra large. Smooth fit and looks great as an Indian wars era cowboy action getup. This vest will also see action on Saturday nights and Sunday mornings.

Great Addition
This vest is definitely a surprise, and a pleasant one at that. There is just enough wool in the fabric to give it the proper feel. The fact that it is self backed makes it perfect for use without any type of jacket or coat. On top of that it is decidedly comfortable to wear! I purchased this with one very specific use in mind, which required the stand up collar, and Navy Blue was exactly what was needed for the Tartan it was to be worn with. But now that I have it, I'm finding that it works quite well in many other ways. It will be seeing a great deal of use year round. This is definitely worth the extra bit of time that a special order requires.

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.

Good Basic Brown w/ Flair
I have really enjoyed this one so far. It's not to fancy to be used as a basic brown vest, which is one of my staple colors and not so easy to find for everyday use. It gives a touch of flair without being overly bold.

The product surpasses the photos and description
I do not often purchase items online, particularly clothing. However, in shopping for an attractive, conservative Victorian style vest, I liked the Astor. I decided order it. Because I ordered a large, the company told me to expect it in 10 to 14 days. It arrived in just over a week, and I was absolutely amazed at the quality of the fabric, the workmanship, the fit, and the overall product. I have worn it everyday for work and leisure since December 31, 2016 and I am absolutely satisfied with this product. I will definitely do business with Gentleman's Emporium in the future. In fact, a female friend of mine has ordered two garments from the site and she is equally thrilled. She said she shops garments online constantly, and she has never been more satisfied.

Brother’s vest
This vest and many others we’ve purchased are for my handicapped brother. He is slightly obsessed with the period clothing and loves your Victorian products! With his handicaps, I greatly appreciate the vests that are machine washable- not just wool options. He has shrunk a few rather expensive ones :(.

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.

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.

Elegant vest. Great structure. The back is not shiny vest material, it's a stiffer canvas-type material. Seems more rugged than a typical vest, which is great. It looks like a well made garment.

I am conductor on the Leadville, Colorado & Southern Railroad. I needed a vest to fit the part. 5 years ago I purchased this vest. I like the fit. It has clean lines, great buttons, looks like a conductor's vest from by-gone railroad days. It has served me well. I spend a good part of the day in the sunshine and the back was beginning to fade. I looked at several stores and found nothing that compared to the fit, style and quality of this vest. It was time to order a new one. I will wear this proudly.

Sharp Looking But Simple
I love this vest! I recently purchased this to add to my growing collection of vests from The Gentleman's Emporium. My Black Baker City Vest is wonderful, but it's a little flashy for work. So I bought this New Banker Vest. It doesn't have the fancy patterns or slick texture of the Baker City (nor is it double breasted), but the New Banker Vest is really sharp! Even with a standard white shirt and black necktie, it stands out in a crowd. I am very happy with it.

The bankers vest is a smart addition to my historical attire, but I wear it often for regular wear. Sharp looking, it adds a bit of warmth in my chilly office. I carry a pocket watch anyway, so having the chain displayed adds a bit of charm... and smiles to faces who see me.

As a larger man, I have been having a difficult time finding a vest that would fit and look good on me. After a quick measurement, I ordered a 3x and was very pleased when it arrived, just the right size. I can't wait to wear it at my wedding, although I have already told my fiancee that I will probably be wearing it on a regular basis from then on.

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!

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.

This is my second purchase from the Emporium, and it won't be my last. I'm going to need a new vest for a character I portray, and I'll be ordering a new vest before the festival season begins. Their turn-around and shipping times are great. By the way, while the Buford vest works great for another of my characters, I purchased it to wear at work at the university library and it gets tons of compliments. 'nough said!
