Formal but not stuffy!
A well made garment (a perfect fit) and ideal for formal and semi-formal occasions without being stuffy. Very happy with this purchase.

Very Nice
Normally, the sizing on HE's clothing runs large, but I had a hunch to go up one size, and I'm glad I did. Even one size up, it was still a little snug, but it's a wonderful vest with the same high quality I've come to expect from HE. Very nice!

Have been searching for this vest for years!
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.

Vest.
The vest was perfect for my event and I see wearing it to other social events as well. I had to get it tailored as it was too large but that was only because there was no time to return it for a medium. Still, I am very pleased with my purchase.

Good quality item, poor size
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.

Buckingham Vest Black/Black
This is a great vest! It is a little heavier than the average vest, which makes it great for cooler temperatures. If you want to use the three pockets, you will have to cut open the stitching, but a simple pen knife makes it a snap. The vest is very stylish and I like the high collar. I received the vest a few days after placing my order: wonderful expediency!

Signature piece!
I was putting together an outfit for a presentation of a 19th-century preacher. The rest of the suit is pretty plain (black coat and pants, white shirt, black tie), so I wanted one piece that stood out and was special. This really fits the bill! The tapestry feel and looks gives a rich texture and the silver buttons really set it off! I love this vest and I want to wear it everywhere!

Great quality on this vest. The Gramercy velvet vests are lacking in material assurance. Had to throw them out due to chunks of velvet coming off. I will probably order another Buckingham vest.

Fantabulous vest
I absolutely LOVE this vest. The red/black Buckingham vest is completely stunning. It came to my home in about 2-3 business days from the time I bought this vest. The vest is absolute splendor and beauty. It also fits me very well. I do have some words of advice to those who want this vest. First: you're going to want to reenforce the buttons as they are a little loosely attached. Second: be very honest about your measurments. This vest is cut smaller than other vests made by HE. Other than that you will be the talk of the town in the Buckingham vest. If you love victorian style vests; get this now.

I am very satisfied with the service that I have recieved. The transaction was very simple. I'm not going to lie I was a little skeptic about the vest measurements, but the vest fits so nicely. (Don't cheat on your measurements!) The shipping was awesome! I ordered the vest two days before Christmas and I recieved it within 5-7 days. I have nothing but positive feedback and I look forward to my next purchase from this site!

beautiful garment I had the all black version too. Now I want one that is purple, that is black with purple accents, buttons and edges. It wears well and many people tell me how attractive it is. But then I love vests perhaps a morning coat in similar colors would be fitting as well

I am particular about my purchases in clothing, and I have been looking for a vest like this for a while. To say I am pleased with this vest is an understatement. Shipped fast and arrived before promised. The style, make, quality and the perfect fit means I will be shopping with HE again and very soon. The best vest yet.

Historically accurate? Maybe. Awesome? A resounding yes! This is a Sharp(e), dashing waistcoat that got me noticed the first time I put it on. The fabric is excellent and the buttons are good quality. The button-hole stitching is machine-made: enough said. The cut is longer than the usual vest and is generous through the stomach area without being over-large in the shoulders. Beautifully shaped and tapered so you don't miss the adjuster strap at all. Only downside is that the inside French seams did not leave enough room to cover the rough edges so after one wearing I had thick threads hanging out all over. However, that's easily remedied with snips and should not put you off the purchase. Multiple buttons give several different looks. One of their best products. Highly recommended.

THIS IS A BIG VEST!
If you buy this vest, order a size down from your usual size. I bought a 2XL as normal, and it turned out to be too long and wide for me. I had to have it taken up, which cost extra for the tailor to do. It was a very expensive process for an already expensive vest. I like the look and shape of it. I just wish there were more like it for sale in different patterns. I wanted one because it reminds me of an outfit from Blackadder's A Christmas Carol, only lighter. It fits into that Regency/Dickens era perfectly. But the pattern itself is a little bit fuzzy up close, which is disappointing (though maybe not surprising, given the technological limitations of the era.) This looks great with black. Lots of black. It really stands out. I haven't tried brown though, as that's not really my colour. Also, it suits a high collared shirt better I think. So either Regency or Victorian high stand collar styles.

Very Nice!
I've had my eye on this one for awhile and finally decided to go ahead and get it. First, the color is very close to what I see on my monitor. The fit is very good, true to size and not uncomfortable. Being a tapestry vest, the fabric is pretty thick. This is most noticeable in the collar area, but not a deal breaker by any means, but l will be wearing it in cooler weather. l have only briefly worn it a couple of times so far and have received a number of compliments on it. The Crimson or Walnut pants really work well with it.

Looks nice.
Unfortunately, this atypical vest was not accurate in its sizing, running small. It is beautiful to look at on a hanger, but you have to be very trim in order to button all the buttons which means your belly must be smaller than your chest because the lower part of the vest is extremely narrow and there is not any adjustment. I was unable to wear it because my belly is larger than my chest. I recommend at least one size up from your normal vest size.

Very Pleased Overall
Beautiful vest which I plan on wearing with my Sheriffmuir jacket and kilt. I plan on wearing including the frilly shirt with the lace jabot and cuffs. The only thing negative is that some of the cloth covering the buttons is coming loose. Not sure what to do about that.

I purchased the Vaughan Green Waistcoat, since I needed a different color and style to accent my wardrobe for an upcoming event. The material is high quality, the color is true and represented well by the photos, and the fit was as described. I was surprised by the quality and how well made it was. Shipping was quick. I am very happy and will readily purchase similar items in the future.

This is an amazing looking vest. The collar will be better if you have a longer neck. I originally ordered a 3x, but had to exchange it for a 2x. Customer service was fantastic. The exchange was made way quicker than I anticipated due to the current Covid crisis. Always a pleasure to shop with HE.

New favorite waistcoat
I've wanted a green waistcoat for the holidays and St. Patrick's day and I finally purchased this one. I love it! The high collar gives it a little oriental look. It's a little longer than usual waistcoats, which I like. If I wear a belt, it's hidden nicely with this. The fabric is beautiful and it's fairly lightweight so I'll be wearing it in the spring as well.

Waist not, want not
Great looking waistcoat and fits the purpose perfectly. A little too roomy at the waistline and does not have the adjustable band at the back; however if I expand, there is room for me to grow! A size smaller would not fit properly in the chest, so prefer the roomier waist as the lesser issue. It is also worn under an 18th century-like coat so no overall worries.
