Absolutely The Finest Vintage Era Clothing
I absolutely love the Vintage Era clothing that is offered on this site. The Vests and Shirts are all constructed of the highest quality materials and look great. I like to dress them down with a pair of jeans for weekend casual wear, and dress them up with a suit or sports coat when dress wear is called for special dress occasions. If you enjoy wearing this style of Vintage clothing, then this is the site to get it from. All my items were shipped quickly as promised, and were safely packaged. I plan on ordering other items in the very near future. Five Stars, highly recommend this site.

Holiday WOW!
This is my second purchase from Emporium. This newest addition to my vest collection was part of my 2014 corporate holiday outfit. It was a fashion hit! It's silky smooth touch and excellent craftsmanship is second to none. The faintest hints of light blue makes this vest pop inside the paisley print. A must for a mans wardrobe.

Can't say enough about the quality and off the rack fit. If I would have been a bit more timely in my order, I would have had it altered just a bit to dial in the tailored look. Regardless, very well made and had many compliments.

I care about how I look and this vest is great to wear and really looks "the business!" If you want stand out from the crowd by looking stylish get a Silverado. The ladies like it!

As an entertainer, having an authentic performance is crucial for an audience to believe what they sre seeing. As a magician, it important for the audience to believe the impossible. Having proper clothes is part of the illusion. This beautiful Kingsley vest turns heads. I have gotten so many compliments on my appearance. I have recently recieved another vest and it has also garnered much attention. Thank You to Historical Emporium !

Even Better
I bought this for a barrel-chested fiddler who is used to wearing reproduction clothing and who is VERY picky about fit & appearance. He performed in it every week-end from Thanksgiving to Christmas and absolutely LOVES it! The colour, the cut, and the finishing is all first-rate. The fabric is exactly what is described - a lightweight canvas - so do not mistake it for dressy. It was perfect for our musician, who was in a mid-19th-century tavern on the waterfront.

This isn't costume quality. It's truly wearable and durable clothing. I'm very impressed with the cut and feel of this vest. The attention to detail on every part -- the stitching, inner lining, and buttons -- is spot on. When I put it on, I felt like wearing it on a normal basis and not just for the costume I was putting together for it. I highly recommend this product. I'll defiantly be back to pick up other items should the quality remain this high.

Fits as great as it looks!
I recently received my double-breasted vest in the crimson colour, and I have to say, it looks every bit as great as it fits! It feels sturdy and well-made and best of all, I have something I can wear casually as well as to events and conventions with equal aplomb! I may well find myself ordering more of these if the one that I got is any indicator!

Class of the past
My wife was concerned that it seemed stiff. I had to explain to her, this is a working vest, designed for a hard working environment. I showed her some pictures of the time period and she got on board with me and said they had more class and self respect back then. I told her that i do not see any reason we can't have class like that today. So now she likes it, not as much as me, but it is me that wears it, and I like the stiffness of the vest. Gives me a uniform feel to it. With add many years I put in to the military, it makes me feel right at home.

Well made, nice fit
I am very happy with this vest. The color, cut and fit was exactly what I had hoped for. The only thing to be aware of is the cut of the shirt you are intending to wear with this vest (as with many vests). The 'arm holes' are such that you need a shirt that is not as loose under the arm as some shirts are. Keeping that in mind, this is a very nice canvas vest!

Marvellous Cut
When this waistcoat arrived I was amazed at how much better it looked in reality. I am using this both for informal daywear as well as for formal evening attire, even works well with the Regency Tailcoat. On top you could use it for a dashing Western outfit. Versatile all around! Had some sizing issues at the start, but Historical Emporium sent me a replacement and this time the waistcoat fit perfectly. Since it was my first order I wasn't so familiar with the sizing table, but for my future orders I am now perfectly prepared. Will order from Historical Emporium again!

Purchased the Trailrider Vest as a Christmas gift 3 weeks before Christmas. Had searched many sites that did not have the vest in stock and could not guarantee that it could be back ordered in time for Christmas. Not only did Historical Emporium have the vest in stock, but I received the vest 6 days later, well in time for Christmas. The vest was of excellent quality! It was better than I imagined. The leather was very soft and very well made.

canvas double breasted vest
I have previously purchased a number of vests from you. I am a reasonally tall slim guy and it is actually pretty difficult to determine which size to order for vests. I started ordering mediums but they were very loose fitting, particularly the single breasted ones so I have found that size small is actually a pretty good fit and they look very trim on. The double breasted in size small have been just big enough up until this most recent one. I have the exact same one in black and it is a bit firm but fits OK. This wheat one is real tight across the chest( waist is OK and also too small under the arms. I have not returned it as the postage both ways to Australia is more than the vaue of the vest!

a versatile, complimentary and useful vest
I would like to compliment you on a vest which I purchased from your store. It is the canvas double-breasted vest, in wheat color. This vest goes well with my blue blazer, my houndstooth jacket, and my tweed jacket. It was part of my ensemble (trousers, shirt, tie, houndstooth jacket, cap) that garnered a compliment from a passerby when I was walking along Fifth Avenue in New York. The canvas is strong, and it provides a mild amount of warmth, and it is machine washable. The four pockets enable me to carry my pocket watch (watch in one pocket, clasp in another pocket, and the chain across the middle) and it still leaves a pocket for my cell phone and one to spare. All in all, this is a versatile, complimentary and useful vest. Thank you for a very good product.

This vest is a conversation piece. It takes an everyday suit to another level and makes me stand out from the other guys with just a suit and tie on. Everytime I wear it, I have received complements and people want to know where I got it. The quality is exceptional. I plan on getting the remaining available colors of this exact vest.

Romantic attire
I have looked for a red vest like this one for a couple of years. I saw some in Paris that were fine but horribly expensive. This one is excellent for a reasonable price. The colours are nice and accurately represented in the website. I wear it sometimes in the house with my fez, for reading poetry, as a man of letter of the 19th century. I plan to wear it for parties and for entertaining at home. Eventually, I may wear it with an ensemble comprising a black frock coat.
