Excellent vest
This particular style and shade was chosen by our barbershop quartet because of its color and range of sizes--our members run between Medium and 3XT! Having an all-silk facing with a subtle pattern gave the vest a very handsome look. Quality of detail and workmanship was excellent. Hopefully now we'll sing as good as we look!

Excellent quality
I love this vest! It fits so perfectly and the quality surpasses the garbage that most mainstream sellers try to push. I wish I could just walk into a store and purchase high quality clothes like this. Thank you Gentleman's Emporium!

Just what I was looking for
This was my first purchase from the Historical Emporium along with a satin silver puff tie and I have to say this exeded all expectations, the vest is very well made and is extremely light over all I love it. I will say this when I got it there where a few strings around the buttons but I was assured by a friend of mine who does a lot of tailor work that it was just the tie off point were they closed the stitching for the button holes. Well there is my " complaint " for this review and all it took to fix it was about two minutes with a small scissors and you couldn't even tell so all in all I give this 5 stars.

A Dapper Vest
This vest is well-crafted and really looks sharp under my black Victorian Cutaway Coat. It will also look great when worn as "Santa casual" with black trousers and an open-collared white shirt.

Good Quality Vest, But Runs Small To Size
I have two 4XL vests from this company and they fit fine for years, but have lost some weight and now fit into 3XL coats and other period (work and informal) vests. But I needed a formal 3XL vest and ordered this one. It's tight and runs quite small for the stated size. That's OK, because I have a few months before the event I'll be wearing it at on stage and I'm still dieting, but if I had needed it sooner I would have returned the item. So if you're a true 3XL, be wary of this particular style, although everything else about it is as advertised.

Twin-City black vest
The Twin-City Vest in black is stunning, and whilst light weight, is of quality workmanship. The self pattern is striking but subtle making it a stand out vest in my gentlemen's attire. I am very happy with the product

Love this Twin City Vest in black. Looks so classy with both my black silk puff tie and the grey silk puff tie. Intend on buying the Twin City Vest in grey, in future as well.

Twin City Very Nice
The fabric patterning is much more visible in person and the overall quality is good for the price. The vest does fit a bit snuggly at the largest part of the belly. We did measure and purchase for the appropriate size and he is on the low end of the sizing for the size we purchased. Other than that love the item.

Nice Vest Sizing not Right
The vest is very nice, and well made. However, the sizing is not quite right. I measured my waist and belly, and based on that I got a Large. Turns out I should have gotten an XL. I think you need to revise your measuring chart, as this inaccuracy cost me a button which popped the first time wearing it.

Versatile item
A good value for the price. The vest is typical of the second half of the 19th century. It can dress a honest family man, a fancy clergyman, a black hat cowboy, or a greedy capitalist. The construction is lighter than what is was then, but it makes it more comfortable and not too warm. lI have worn it recently at a traditional Xmas party with a red tartan bow tie and it was a success.

Sorry to say...
I received the vest in record time. No issues with customer service, or the order process. I tried the vest on and hated it. You see, I'm going to a wedding and I wanted something different. I felt that the over look of the product was cheap. So.....sent it back yesterday. I will continue to use your shop...just not that vest. Thanks.

My bride loved it the first time I purchased it. It runs a little small so if your in between sizes order larger and it has a strap adjustment in the rear. It is very good quality.

Outstanding vest
This vest goes with any ensemble, and definitely makes a statement. Sizing was accurate (ordered a medium), surprisingly, especially for a guy with a bigger upper body chest. The waist is easily tapered with the adjustment strap on the back, so it won't look baggy.

This vest is ok ..not great like I expected from such a reputable source. Actually looks like it was sewn in China.. :( it has darts in the front, that's fine but they are short sewn and make the sides pucker. We needed the vest on short notice..our fault, or else we would have sent it back. Although it is pretty and the buttons are really nice.

A very handsome waistcoat
My first order with the Emporium was a collection of waistcoats; this one is a particular favourite. Fine texture, beautiful colour - pairs very nicely indeed with the charcoal Callahan frock coat and the black velvet Edwardian morning coat. Looks superb, fits well, excellent value all 'round.

Twin City Vest
Received within del. dates shown (as has happened with everything else I have bought). The vest is everything you said it would be in colour and material. It helped that I already owned a red version of the same vest. They make a fine addition to my mid 19th century garb that I wear when making my presentations at the local Historic Village and at the Seniors' Residences where I make historic presentations. I will also wear it for St Patrick's day.
