5'11 200 lbs XL good fit
Twice is a Charm! I ordered a Large the first time and returned it today due to it was too small. Soon as I received it I ordered a Extra Large, it arrived today and is great. Will be ordering the Green one next. Quality Vest for sure.

Great Quality -
This Double breasted vest is of great quality. It is tube shaped rather than tapered so gives a little more room to breath so to speak. Match your size according to the larger; belly or chest. The 36 fit for my husband who normally wears 34 pants. We paired it with two different shirts, the Virgil and Bellamy for different looks. The quality is wonderful, the customer service was 10 out of 10. I would highly recommend any products from Historical Emporium.

Lighter than expected, well built
XXL fits larger than expected, but not drastically. Canvas feels durable. Lighter and cooler than expected. Pockets are reasonably sized and useful.

Terrific for the price
The vest is surprisingly thick and warm, and the stitching is carefully done. The double buttons are not for show but are all functional. The sizing was also perfect. I am more than pleased with the vest, obviously, and it arrived quickly after purchase.

I was underprepared for just how thick and durable this vest was going to be. It really is a thick canvas material and pairs well with canvas trousers for a formal look that is still functional for work. Do not recommend wearing this on a hot day though, it is seriously a thick fabric. The fabric is so thick I struggle to get my US Marshal badge through the fabric for my cosplay XD!

Love this vest!
It's a heavier, thicker vest with a straight cut and round bottom. The fit was almost perfect, and I keep getting complimented on it. I may need to find a 'reason' to purchase another.

I have looked for a canvas double breasted vest for a long time, and was unable to find one, until I found Historical Emporium on a search for another item (which I also purchased from them) and was pleased with the vest and its look!

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!

And the set is complete!
When I got my two piece tailcoat set, my intention was not to do full white tie. But then I needed the shirt for my livery and the tie as well and hey, in for a penny, in for a pound! I like it very much. As with the rest, it's well constructed. It took me a second to figure out how it's worn, as it's quite a different cut than I'm used to, but ones on it fits nicely (a concern with any vest, but particularly men's) and looks grand!

No place for pocket watch
The vest is well made, with good quality fabric. Just wish the pocket welts were actually pockets, as my husband wears a pocket watch and chain with his Victorian and Edwardian dress. I am a costume designer and maker, so I will add the pockets myself.

Nice vest
This vest looks great with my husband's Victorian tux with tails. It bulges out at the sides a little, but you can't see it with the tux jacket on. We use this for historical dancing, so he's not supposed to remove his jacket on the dance floor anyway. So, it works fine for us. Looks fantastic when he's got everything on together. Thank you.

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.

I ordered the vest to wear at my daughter's wedding that had a western theme. The vest fit perfectly and the Italian Lamb Leather is of top quality. A number of guests commented on the appearance and feel of the vest. I am extremely pleased with my purchase.

Very pleased with the product and service
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.

Rich-looking and good quality
I like this item because it is unusual and rich-looking without being obvious. The material is thick and tweed-like, and this makes the pattern and colors appear more subtle than the photo might indicate. Unfortunately it also picks up lint rather easily; don't wear it with any item that may shed. But that's the only criticism I have. It's well made. The pattern is well matched, which I often don't find even in more expensive items from higher-end retailers. You must button/unbutton all eight buttons as none are just for show. The fit is good with minimal or no taper. That's good news for those of us who don't have designer bodies. Overall, I highly recommend this.
