Styling...
I find the most helpful reveiws discuss sizing and not aesthetics. For me, the fit depends on the cut of the garment, I am to thick to wear "skinny" tailored clothes and often, if I go one size larger, it can look like I am wearing my father's clothing. In a sport coat I look for a 43" regular and once again depending of the cut of the garment, along with my own seasonal weight loss or gain, the article of clothing "fits" or looks styling or looks like I am in desperate need of a tailor. Out of the bag, my ordered "Commander Vest" fit nicely and allowed enough room for me to feel comfortable without adjusting the back strap. I purchased this vest for part of a SteamPunk costume I've assembled to wear to DragonCon in the fall of this year. I'm still working on some other applications... Thanks,

The vest is as described, and has a nice weight to it, I've taken to wearing it with my pair of Wahmaker Frontier Canvas Pants in the brown color, with a white or red dress shirt, it adds a nice casual look to the somewhat dressed look that I wear on a regular basis.

Military fashion show!
Another fine vest you gotten me into! This high collar vest provides a distinguished and unique look that will have you looking like an officer and a gentleman. It looks great with an ascot or can even be worn with a regular tie and suit for the avantegard anachronistic look. I was impressed with the craftsmanship and durability that is usually reserved for overpriced designer wear. Since it is worn close to the neck, I would suggest getting a size larger than you would normally wear. It has a surprisingly fitted feel.

I love this vest
My husband needed a black and white vest for an event later this year during which we will be in historic costumes for a week at a time. This one is not just the best-looking option I could find, but fits well and is well made. He can remove his jacket with confidence; he'll still look well-dressed and period appropriate.

Just what I needed
Bought this striped vest for a Night Circus themed party so everyone needed to wear black and white with a shock of red. This is the best vest I found over the entire internet to fit what I was looking for and the price is good. The product arrived very quickly and I was impressed with the quality for what I paid. The vest is thin, which is what I expected. I wont have to worry about overheating indoors. The fit was perfect when following the size guide.

Snazzy.
Great medium weight vest, good for the warmer months. Sizing is correct, rare in this world, I'm about a 45 chest and the large fits just right. The stripey fabric goes good with lots of shirts. A Yale man might even wear it over a t-shirt.

Chauncey Tapestry Waistcoat
I purchased this waistcoat for my husband to wear to our 3rd wedding which will be held in our Catholic Church. My husband will wear this vest with a white long sleeve shirt, brown pants, a gold plain belt and black & gold shoes along with a purple or light pink and white boutonniere and a plain brown tie. The reason I bought this waistcoat is because it holds a pocketwatch that my husband wanted to wear plus he and I really liked the material pattern. Not one of these pictures do the actual vest justice it is so much more gorgeous in person. The color cannot be captured on a camera. We would highly recommend this waistcoat for anyone that would like something stunning for a special event. The quality and buttons are also very beautiful.

I have been promising myself a tapestry vest for years now. I have lived most of my life in the western US although I am originally from Maryland. I like western fashion, but never had a "Dress Look" until I purchased the Chauncey Waistcoat. When my daughters saw me in my corduroy sports jacket, my Chauncey Waistcoat, an ascot and my big Stetson they both started teasing me about looking for a poker game. I have received compliments for my vest from passers-by on the street! Great fun, great look, great quality - the Chauncey Tapestry Waistcoat.

This is a very well made, tapestry waistcoat. It fits well, and looks and feels authentically vintage (as though it had been made in the mid to late 1800's). This waistcoat has an elegant feel and goes well with almost any variation of colours for shirts and trousers. I would highly recommend this vest and I have referred several people to the Historical Emporium web site! Orders are filled promptly, and delivery occurs quicker than expected.

Santa & Ragtime
I have a substantial grey beard. This vest is suitable for my visits as Saint Nicholas' younger brother--his, ahem, younger, handsomer brother. A Santa Claus suit is a costume, a vest is clothing--and a step up in refinement from lighter weight vests I have worn. As an occasional performer of ragtime and kindred older piano, such a vest is expected. Of course for the role as a piano-playing Santa Claus, this burgundy vest is best.

fine craftsmanship
I am really enjoying this vest; it's comfortable and looks great. I have seen the real thing as I have worked at museums for a while and it definitely allows me to see what some of the vests would have looked and felt like when they were new 140 years ago. And yes I have received compliments on it!

Rich in colour and texture
The pictures really don't do the waistcoat justice. The cut is superb, the texture is quite lush and the colour is rich and vibrant, and offset perfectly by the black trim. I wear this to work on a regular basis and it always gets compliments - works well with a black coat and trousers (I wear it with the Livingston brushed cotton trousers and the Victorian cutaway frock coat) and a white shirt for excellent contrast. One of my favourite items in my wardrobe - you'll probably find it becomes one of the favourites in yours, too.

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.

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.
