An excellent addition to my wardrobe
I originally found this when I was looking for some accessories to go with a hat I'd found at goodwill. Unfortunately, it wasnt as good a color match as I'd hoped, but this is not a bad thing! The vest is comfortable, lightweight, and durable enough to wear while doing blue collar work. I'm now going out and looking for shirts, ties, and other accessories to showcase my new vest. I'd particularly recommend pairing this vest with any of the canvas pants Historical Emporium sells. Even if it's a different color, the matching fabric type helps to pull the whole thing together (and the crimson of the vest is a bit saddened, so it's a decent neutral color to build a palette around).

Great waistcoat, but there's a catch.
The waistcoat is of excellent construction, very durable, and pretty to look at. However, as others have noted, it IS a bit on the high waisted side. Me and the person I ordered it for share the same chest measurement, yet while it fits my 5'10" frame well, when he, being 6'1" wears it, there is a visible 1.5" gap between the waist of his pants and the hem of the vest. This is no strike against the vest itself, as it is of excellent quality, but if it could be made a BIT taller, it would have been perfect. Still looks good as the finishing touch on his War Doctor cosplay :) Thank you!

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.

Very Pleased
The last night of a planned overseas vacation, we will be celebrating our anniversary at a fairly posh restaurant in London. They absolutely require men in long sleeves and would like a tie and jacket. Not wanting to lug a jacket all over England, I purchased this herringbone vest for him. With dress pants and a bold tie, the vest turns from Old West to English Country Gentleman. We are pleased with the construction and the color.

loose fit
i am a bit disappointed that the fit of the vest is not as represented in the photo. The photo shows a nicely tapered fit, although the actual cut is much more straight and becomes too loose at the waist. There is a buckle in the lower back for taking up some of the extra material, but it becomes much to bunchy in the back when the front looks better. The canvas material will also take some working in so it feels more supple.

High quality clothing
This is a great looking, well-made vest that is both "pretty and practical." It's a nice deep black (although being canvas, I would expect it to fade a bit with wear and time; we'll see). Plenty of pockets, sturdy fabric, easy care -- just a nice article of clothing that would look as good with a pair of jeans as it does with a victorian costume. We got an XL Tall for my 5'11" husband -- this style is quite short in the torso, typical of the era it represents, and if you have any sort of a belly, it seems like the regular length doesn't quite meet even a high-waisted trouser. The longer length solves this really nicely, so it's a good option for the wider among us as well as the taller! ;-)

For Real
My Granddad was a road engineer who was also a prospector. Although his vest was really a mess when we dug it out, this working vest is as close as anyone is going to get to the feel of daily wear of the last part of the 19th century and the first part of the 20th. Because I have a long torso and knew the shirt I was going to wear with this vest was a bartender blouse, I ordered a 3X tall, but normally I would use a 2XT. This gives me plenty of room to carry a small pistol (fake) inside the vest, as well as accommodating the frilly bartender's blouse. Really nice workmanship at a reasonable price.

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.

Bought this and the matching Ferndale Striped spats to complete my patent medicine salesman 'living history' persona and am 1000% pleased with the fit and appearance. Both items look great in the website photos but are even more impressive in person. Really liked the higher neckline on this vest and the 4 pockets in front are perfect for everything from my pocket watch to a small bottle of 'cure all'. Thanks Historical Emporium for offering such great merchandise!

I ordered the whole suit; Frock coat, pants, vest and spats. Great quality. I'm 6'2" 215lbs and the XLs are a little on the large size, but I'll be getting them tailored. Not sure if the large would have done it, so not a big issue. LOOKS GREAT. Good weight to the fabric.

Seems great. Haven't tried to wash/clean it yet but the quality is nice. Trust the tape measure. I couldn't bring myself to order a size large as 100% of my wardrobe is XL. Ended up having to exchange it. I think I could have even fit a medium. Trust the tape measure procedure they give you. Also, go a size up on the pants as suggested. The Ferndale combo looks pretty sweet.

Just right, sort of a 2 in one vest
I ordered the smallest size, as I'm very skinny and stuff like this is hard for me to get a good fit in, and it fits pretty much perfectly, wish they offered more of their vests/coats in a 35 chest. I was expecting a costume quality piece, but when I opened it a tried it on I was pleasantly surprised by the quality. The canvas feels like it'll last a decade or two, almost like how a carhart jacket feels. Worth the price for sure. I haven't seen anyone else mention this, but if you undo the top 2 buttons you can turn down the lapel and it gives the look of a traditional vest, so you can wear it in different fashions. Not to mention its very comfy

It's really unfair to look this good
Recently I had the opportunity to attend an event called The Steampunk Masquerade Promenade and I was decked out in clothes from Steampunk Emporium. This was the first time I'd worn the Commander Vest, it fit fantastic, and was comfortable all night long. It's quality clothing that's made to last. My entire outfit consisted of the following from (Historical) Steampunk Emporium: Commander Vest Baily Trousers Mini Gauntlet, Brown Black Pearl Ornate Pocket Watch Brown Leather Buckle Suspenders Pin, Gears and Wings Additionally, I wore a black button down shirt where I'd replaced the buttons with "copper gear" buttons, and a steam punk top hat I'd acquired a year ago randomly. Anyway, I got compliments everywhere I turned all night. Men and women alike complimented the style and the look. I think that a big part of this outfit looking so good is the quality of the clothes. Unlike anything you'd pick up in a costume shop, this stuff is made to last. I've actually owned the Baily Trousers for a couple of years now... and I've not been nice to them. They still look great, fit amazing, and have held their color after repeated washing. The suspenders look great and fit well thanks to the elastic on the back. The pocket watch I like so much I've started wearing on a regular basis with my jeans, clipped to a belt loop (finally an opportunity to use that 5th pocket!!!). The Brown Guantlet fit my wrist better than I would imagine as it was listed for women......

Great quality, bit tight
The only thing to mention is that the vest is a bit tight. Every other vest I've gotten here an "M" is very comfortable, looks good, and has just a bit of room. This one though is snug. Not uncomfortable, not a 'problem', just keep it in mind. If I were to have gotten a Large I'd undoubtedly have to have it altered to fit correctly.

Great Vest!
I wanted to write a review about the Commander Vest because from reading the other reviews I had concern about the sizing with some saying that it runs small. I usually wear a 35 or 36 which is right on the border of a small. I ordered a small and medium with the idea I would keep the one which fits and return the other. I opened the small first and it fit perfectly so no need to even try the medium. It is a fitted cut though through the waist which I like very much. It is a very nice looking vest with the aged brass buttons giving it a sharp look. It is a great part of my steampunk outfit and I am very happy with the purchase.

Perfection
My chest measurement (46) was on the border, so I needed to be sure. I e-mailed CS and received sound advise going forward with the XL. The Wheat color is correctly presented in photos 2-4. The more yellowish-tint or hue from photo 1 is not a good representation. I fell instantaneously in love, forevermore!

I was not expecting such quality materials and structure for this low of a price. Itís exactly what I wanted, and it arrived very very quickly. I would love to shop here again!

Excellent as expected
I don't use these for costumes. I wear them for business and always get compliments. They make even a pair of blue jeans or khakis look a bit more dressy. Ladies particularly comment favorably.

Excellent. We have had many vests from you. But this and the other we bought are by far the best. For work or other. Just love it. Very classy. The service from Historical Emporium is the best ever. Thankyou

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!

Another Solid Vest
This is the third color I have gotten of the Double Breasted Canvas Vest. They are so comfortable and stylish, I can't get enough of them. I wear them more than my other vests, and I mostly wear them as regular street clothes, not costuming.

Canvas double breasted
Beautiful vest. Fit is what I expected. I really like cotton canvas I thought I would wear it this summer but it is double layered Material so I'll have to wait till winter.

Definitely a Classic
I recently purchased the Classic Canvas Work Vest in crimson color and was immediately impresses by it. It is probably my favorite vest now, which I own many different types of work and dress vests from the 1880's period of clothing. The materials and workmanship are of the highest quality, and the styling is really nice too. I really like the buttons used on this vest, as I am partial to metal buttons. Even though it is classified as a "work" vest, it is as nice as my "dress" vests! I highly recommend this vest if you are looking for a durable, yet "dressy" vest. Sincerely, Doc

Sturdy workaday vest
My husband loves your canvas work vests. I've bought him a couple colors already, and he wears them as often as he can get away with it. He loves that it has four functional pockets with enough room for wallet, phone, keys, and glasses. The construction and the material are top-notch. Thank you for a great product!

Fine working class weskit
Excellent canvas vest in Burgundy. My last one I outgrew was double breasted, but I prefer this single breasted version. All four pockets work and it is the same canvas front to back, so it still looks good without the coat on. Fits true to size and is easy to clean stains from the canvas with cold water. Great for Victorian London, Western, and Halfling uses! Looks great with a watch chain, I love it!

This Vest Will Make You Look Good - Guaranteed
I needed some western themed garb for a promo I was shooting. I ordered this and the Walnut Classic Canvas Duster. Together with a bandana, a hat, and a pocket watch, it transformed my actor into a genuine looking cowboy. Wouldn't have looked nearly as good without this vest! The build quality is amazing - especially the stitching - and it stands up to all-day shooting and multiple machine washes without wrinkling or pilling (did not machine dry - hung to dry). The buttons are great quality and sewn to the material well, so I'm not worried about one popping off. Even better, the buttons on the duster match the ones on this vest for a very finished look. I highly recommend this as a wardrobe item for film, video, or any other venture in which you might need western wear. Very impressed, 5 out of 5!

Wonderful vest
This vest is well made and looks fantastic. My only issue was the sizing , the 3x was a bit large around the arm holes. No big problem, my wife gets a chance to try out her new sewing machine . Next time I will try the 2x but I will definitely be buying here again.

My 5th Vest/Waistcoat
I am now the proud wearer of 5 Emporium waistcoats; not all at the same time of course ;) Two wool and three canvas. And I am totally satisfied with each of them. The color is advertised as "Crimson"... not being familiar with crimson, I see it as a unique red-brown rusty color. I like the way the color reflects light! ! I am looking forward to Emporium having an all wool, pinstripe, vest.
