Classic work vest
It is the second one that I have had in several years. It is better than my first one. Only because It has an inside pocket, perfect for my cell phone and is about 2 inches, great for taller men.

I bought the black Classic Canvas Work Vest a couple of year ago. Love it! While browsing and searching the website recently, I found the (brown) Walnut version. Now, I can coordinate with my black hats and western boots or my brown hats and western boots. The vests look great with jeans. When wearing it, I prefer to button the top button on my shirt, also. It creates cleaner lines, looking good with either short point button-downs or plain collars. Chambray shirts, plaid, striped, or solid oxfords blend well, yielding results ranging from rugged looks to downright dapper. Occasionally, I add a bolo tie. The options are numerous. The fit is excellent. Construction appears to be durable and well-finished. I like the liner inside. Canvas fabric is a nice weight. The pockets are quite handy. The notched collar adds a special touch. I get lots of notice and positive comments regardless of the color -- from people of all ages. Simply put, the Classic Canvas Work Vest is a functional, comfortable, stylish, well-made garment that I enjoy wearing. It's one of those things that makes me feel good to wear it. I look forward to wearing my vests for years to come.

Canvas Work Vest
The quality and workmanship on the vest are outstanding however I have a 41" chest and the medium was too tight to breath comfortably while sitting down and the large is more like an extra large with over 4" of overlap in the front which makes the arm holes protrude forward in a very noticeable way. There needs to be a size in between for this vest. Unfortunately this vest simply does not fit me.

I was skeptical at first, but for the price I thought I had to try it and I'm very happy with it now. The fabric is stiffer than I expected, but less than the military version from the same manufacturer. I also own the red version of this model. The ensemble with my frock coat and my cane gives me a very gentlemanly look that I am looking for. I recommend it to you.

Vest too short
This is a nice quality vest but it is way too short. For a size 5xl it is about 4 inches to short. I am 6' 1" tall this vest would fit some one that is about 5' 6". I have a 34" inseam for my jeans so it is not like I have a long upper body. The bottom of this vest ends up about 3 to 4 inches from my waste. I doubt I will ever wear this vest do to it being so short. Had this vest fit as it is showed in the pictures I would have given it 5 stars the quality of material and look of it is very good.

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.

Impressed
This vest is better than I expected in a lot of ways. It is well constructed, made of very study fabric, and of suitable length for any number of possible pairings, including wearing with kilts. This vest works well as a winter layer under a jacket, and neatly holds a scarf in place. The pockets are a little bit on the small side, but perfectly adequate to hold a pocket watch, as designed, though maybe a little skimpy for a larger sized handkerchief. I'm really pleased with this item, and am considering getting another one in black.

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

Good vest
I followed the size chart, but I was in between sizes. Got the larger size, which fit me under the arms just right, but was HUGE at the bottom. These seem to be made for large bellied men. Had it tailored and took two inches out of both sides to fit it all the way to my waist. Moral of the story, these flare out a good bit.

great vest
This is a great vest. And the choices of colors, I had quite a time deciding. I went with the walnut color. It seems to go with alot of other things. The quality is quite good. I gave it one wash before wearing it. And it looks good. I have been wearing it almost daily. As an added layer to keep the cold out. when I've gone outside since getting this vest. It looks like it should hold up for a long time.

Just what he wanted for Christmas
My husband requested a new vest to coordinate with the walnut canvas trousers he had previously purchased from Gent. Emporium. He is a blacksmith and travels for history days in our Midwest/Ozark area and really needs pockets for a wallet, reading glasses, nails, etc. This vest has plenty of pockets, and if this vest washes and wears as well as his last vest from the Emporium we'll be very pleased. It looks very dashing, and the brown color doesn't show the coal smudges!

Amazing Product
I absolutely love the fit and color of the vest. It works beautifully to accent a suit or a formal steampunk costume. While the fabric is comfortable and not too restrictive, it proved too thin to support the clamp on the end of my pocket-watch chain. A minor disappointment in an overall wonderful product that I would recommend in a heartbeat.

None more black...
Spinal Tap references aside - this waistcoat is seriously black. Not so much just 'black' as BLACK. It's so black it even provides contrast against other black clothes. It's so black that light bends around it. This is a good thing. Like all of the other Bonaventure waistcoats, the texture of the velvet is is lush, the cut is sharp, the colour is rich and deep, and the internal contrast provided by the bright antiqued buttons and the trim (through texture and sheen) is a strong design feature in and of itself. A highly recommended purchase, and one I wear regularly to work, and casually. It also works as a formal waistcoat, naturally, and is durable as well as attractive. It also has the dual benefit of going with absolutely everything in my wardrobe and immediately raising the tone of anything I wear it with. It is pure class in waistcoat form. You will not be disappointed with this item, believe me.

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,

Terrible heat retention
I purchased this vest to wear under my open Santa robe. The quality is not as good as other products I've purchased from Historical Emporium but the main issue is simply it is terribly hot. It holds heat in like a plastic bag. I wore it three different times, several hours each time and was miserable. Sweated and overheated. Wearing my black velvet from last year.

Love the vest
I really love this vest it is the newest of the 5 I have purchased so far. I will say that the velvet makes the vest look very luxurious as well as the satin trim. The color is so rich it almost appeared to be black in color but it is most definitely Hunter Green. I will be wearing it to a Christmas Party in a couple of weeks and on Christmas Eve!

Darker than you might think
Like all of the Bonaventure waistcoats, the texture of the velvet is lush, the cut is very fine, and the contrast provided by the black trim (in colour and texture) and the bright antiqued buttons is excellent; the colour is also deep and rich, but in this instance, very dark, depending on the lighting you're standing under. Occasionally this waistcoat looks black under artificial lights - sunlight does bring its rich green lustre to the fore. Regardless, it's a handsome addition to anyone's wardrobe.

I now own and wear daily several pairs of 1800s trousers and have acquired this, my second vest. Have never been a vest fan but I am now--this and my other vest are in daily use now and look spectacular--very well made, too.

Good Quality
This is my second time buying an "Old West" vest for my costume as a "Living History" re-enactment player. The first attempt was at another web site and the sizing turned out to be an educated guess, it didn't fit. At the Emporium the sizing instructions were accurate and it fits perfectly! I also appreciate that I can purchase the components of my character/outfit one at a time and still have that continuity that the whole outfit looks like it was purchased together.

Great Vest!
This is a well made vest. The material is a heavy duty cotton and feels like very soft canvas. I gave it 4 stars only because of the plastic buttons. They are heavy duty buttons, but I would have paid more money for a vest with buttons that were more period correct (such as wood or another natural material). Also, the tag on the vest says "Gunslinger Vest" and the brand on the label is Frontier Classics. So it is designed as a western style vest. I was wanting something in a Victorian style to wear with my bowler hat, but it will also go well with my western hat. I ordered a size Large and it fits true to size. I wear a size 42 suit and it was a little big, but was able to adjust it down to my size with the tab belt on the back. Plenty of pockets.

This Vest is Amazing!
Quality is spectacular and the shipping is as if I walked into the store and purchased it, delivery from the west coast was quick like I've never seen. Customer service top notch, size of clothing was as described. Best to get one size larger as with all dress clothes due to the high waist. Best clothing company ever!!

THE USUAL HIGH PRAISE
I have purchase numerous shirts, pants ,and vests prior to this purchase. Every piece of clothing has been sized correctly, very well made, and of excellent materials. This vest is no exception to that praise. The shipping service was incredibly fast this time. I do not hesitate to recomend this company and their wares and have numerous times to numerous people. I am a Single Action Shooter Society competitor ( Cowboy action shooting ) . All of the clothing has survived long rugged wear on the shooting range and a great deal of physical activity, with little or no signs of wear. When I want period correct clothing there is no other choice, in my mind -- HISTORIC EMPORIUM

Great Vest for Reasonable Price
This is a great quality, great-looking vest. Sewing quality is outstanding. The material is thick and soft. Buttons are quality, too. I normally would fall into the Large sizing, which I ordered initially, but had to re-order a Medium, which fit perfectly.

Historic
Wearing this vest is not only comfortable, but remarkably historic. I have only received compliments when I wore it - everyone has asked me more about it, and I've told them right away about the Emporium. Works superbly with a cravat and a pocket watch. Hopefully, one day, the mainstream fashion can return to this golden age! We can only try.

Just what we needed for our wedding.
We were looking for a vest for my (now) husband. We finally found the right one on the site. We bought 2 sizes as we didn't know which would fit best. We chose the smaller one and returned the larger one. We had a family member take in the vest a bit because it was still a little big, but there is no way my husband would be comfortable in the next size down. All in all the vest was just what he was looking for and he looked great at our wedding!

Wonderful!
Excellent fit for me, look great, well constructed. What more can on say? I would recommend, especially with matching trousers. I look particularly dapper in these at work.

Nice Earth tone
I really like how this can fit into almost any earth tone outfit. Works with tans, olives and browns. The only drawback is the shorter "gunslinger" flat front doesn't work on me as well. However it seems to be very sturdy with strong buttons.

Handsome more help on the sizing chart would be appreciated. I think men are getting bigger (sorry) and so what used to be a med could be a large? Anyway it was a birthday gift much appreciated.
