Exactly as expected
When I received the vest, I tried it on immediately, perfect fit. The size chart is spot on, almost to a fault...needed just a hair more room, but is still very comfortable. The fabric was everything I expected and more. The picture doesn't do it justice. Very satisfied with the time of shipping and delivery. Would purchase from this site again if ever the need arises. Thank you so much for the quality and integrity of your company

Great Vest
Bought this vest to brighten up my formal wear. Mission accomplished! Now have this Royal Blue Twin City Vest and Wah Maker's Dragon Vest to liven up a tuxedo. I despise having to get dressed up but it is far more tolerable when you feel good about what you are wearing, these vests do it for me. Quality, style and cut of this vest is just what I was looking for.

Twin City Vest - royal blue
A great vest! I love the way it looks. The only downside is the strap in the back has an annoying fastener: you pretty much have to take the vest off to tighten/loosen it yourself. Other than that, the vest is worth it.

great color but sent it back
I ordered the best in the long version of my normal size. This vest was barely long enough but was far too small around the waist. I then ordered two more vests, one size bigger and two sizes bigger, but they were not available in longs. The one size bigger vest was fine around the middle but was terribly short. I ended up sending all three vests back. I understand the vests are cut shorter in the old style, but I think these went to extremes. I'm only 6'1" so it's not like I'm overly tall. I would have had to wear pants almost up to my chest for the regular length vest to work. The color of the vests was terrific - every bit as brilliant as you see in the photos. I wasn't really thrilled with the material though. It was very thin and flimsy . . . it wouldn't hold up to more than a couple CW reenactments, I'm afraid. It felt like a cheap costume rather than a real vest, and for the price I expected better quality. If you're shorter than average the length may not be a problem. If you're average or taller you really need to go with the LT version of the vest and hope it fits. Expect to order one size bigger than you normally would as well. If you need the vest for a one-time use and you can get one that fits, it will work very well for you. If you plan to use it for multiple events I think you'll be disappointed in the material. Gotta love the color though, and the vest looked very nice. I wish I could have made it work. It was perfect for our wedding.

A good looking vest
As a professional Magician, I bought this Twin City Vest to replace on of my current vests (purchased elsewhere) that has worn out. It arrived well packaged, along with the two matching garters that I purchased as well. The vest looks and fits quite well, but the material (especially the lining) is a bit thinner than I was expecting. All in all, still a good looking vest at a good price.

Not the best Vest
The vest seems to be a bit small to size but it still fit. However the finch was a bit lacking. The button holes were not good because the cut in the material was not clean. Also, the thread on some of the buttons will have to be re-stitched because they skimped on thread with some but not all of the buttons.

The Vigilante Vest is perfect~~I bought it online as a Christmas gift for my husband. Not only did it arrive on a lightning bolt, but, Christmas morning, when he tried it on the fit was just right! Completely true to size, as show on the website! The vest itself is beautifully constructed...sturdy fabric, and in a style that will easily go from blue jeans and flannel shirts (as it did yesterday, ALL day..), to a more demanding social event! All around great vest...love the collar, love the pockets, love everything about it!!

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.

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.

Nice vest. Color a bit more subdued than online pics. I've been wearing this to holiday parties lately and gotten compliments and passes as contemporary, not just historical. A bit surprised that I generally end up calling attention to the dragon pattern. Good fit; I have stocky build. Back adjustment strap refines that fit. The back of vest is acetate materials, in subtle grey stripping on black, silky, but not shiney. Delivery fine. Good purchase.

First, let me assure everyone that this is very true to size. It is luxurious and quite fancy, as the Brits used to say rather dapper. The buttons and seeming all look nice, the back is of high quality and I look forward to using this for quite some time. Historical Emporium shipped this very quickly and I received it in less that a week.

This is a great vest, and very sharp. As a matter of fact, it's my second of this style. Before I discovered the Historical Emporium, I purchased my first at a local brick and mortar store for an upcoming show. I just finish multiple shows this past weekend at a Busker Festival. The fit is great and I got a number of compliments on the vest (and my shows too). The fit is spot on, so don't go by the sizes, go by the sizing chart. I'm looking for many years of good service from my new vest!

Highland vest
Another reviewer noted that the buttonholes were ragged, I realize that we live in an imperfect world so some imperfections will turn up but it should be the exception and not the rule. I received my vest and guess what, ragged buttonholes, for the price and the fact that it is made in USA, it is extremely disappointing and unacceptable. If it cost 15.00 no problem, but 71.00, give me a break!

Vest exactly as expected. I'm going to have it tailored, however, to cinch in the waist. Chest is perfect but needs to be taken in at the waist. With the reasonable price of the vest, the cost of tailoring is not an issue.

A bit heavy
So far so good. I've only worn it once. Matches a black suit of mine fairly well. The material is a bit thicker and heavier than I was expecting from a wool/polyester blend. The most annoying thing is that there were many loose threads around the button holes that caught on the buttons and had to be burned off. But I'll probably wear it again.

I love this vest. It is classic and classy and the 4 pockets are well placed and are constructed in a way to offer a great appearance, offer a good place for my time piece. This vest is excellent value for the high quality and the designed is excellent. I am a size 40 chest and the medium vest fit perfectly. ( I thought I was always a size 42 but remeasured my self) These sizes are true to the actual US sizing guidelines.

Quality Vest
This vest was very durable and looks great. The only complaint that I have is that the vest is not available in "tall" sizes, making it feel as though it is riding up any time I raise my hand over my head. Fortunately, when combined with the high waist of the Highland Pants it is less of an issue. I would recommend purchasing this vest with the other items in the Highland line for a nice retro suit.

A little disappointing
This was listed as a dress vest and, from the picture, it looked like the material would be nicer than it is. It's made of a fairly stiff cotton and seems to me more like a work vest. That was something of a disappointment since this was the only black, collared vest without patterned material that I could find. It seems well made and is fine for what it is, it's just not what it looked like on the website.

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!

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.

Excellent Presentation
This Waist Coat, (vest) is a superb example of dignity, professionalism, class, and Style, all rolled into one garment. You don't need a sports coat, Suit, or anything else to make a statement when either, out on the town, or just a day of semi-business. Either buttoned or not you stay to anyone who sees you; "I am a professional "

great
I am conductor on the Leadville, Colorado & Southern Railroad. I needed a vest to fit the part. 5 years ago I purchased this vest. I like the fit. It has clean lines, great buttons, looks like a conductor's vest from by-gone railroad days. It has served me well. I spend a good part of the day in the sunshine and the back was beginning to fade. I looked at several stores and found nothing that compared to the fit, style and quality of this vest. It was time to order a new one. I will wear this proudly.

Great item. Just what I was looking for. Provided a nice touch to a white french-cuffed shirt and black slacks. The silver buttons provided a nice touch. I received many compliments from the NYE group. Thanks!

Sharp Looking But Simple
I love this vest! I recently purchased this to add to my growing collection of vests from The Gentleman's Emporium. My Black Baker City Vest is wonderful, but it's a little flashy for work. So I bought this New Banker Vest. It doesn't have the fancy patterns or slick texture of the Baker City (nor is it double breasted), but the New Banker Vest is really sharp! Even with a standard white shirt and black necktie, it stands out in a crowd. I am very happy with it.

Have been looking for a reliable and trustworthy company to supply my "western wear" needs. Have finally found a home! The vest I ordered arrived on time. The quality, fit and style are unsurpassed. I am totally satisfied. Will be back.

Good every day
The bankers vest is a smart addition to my historical attire, but I wear it often for regular wear. Sharp looking, it adds a bit of warmth in my chilly office. I carry a pocket watch anyway, so having the chain displayed adds a bit of charm... and smiles to faces who see me.

Great vest!!
I ordered this vest sort of as a trial. Having never ordered anything from these guys before, and wondering if the low price meantalso meant low quality, I held my breath. The order arrived very quickly. I must say I am very pleased with the product! The fit is perfect, the fabric and construction first rate, and the look when worn with my costume is every bit as good as the photo on the website. I highly recommend this vest and I expect to order more items from HE soon!

LOVE this vest!
This is the THIRD version of this very same vest that I've owned (to accommodate my spreading waistline). The color and styling are "sharp as a tack", and the workmanship of top quality. WAH vests tend to run a little smaller than some other companies, so one might consider ordering a size larger and than one might usually order.

Red Baker City Vest
Nice article. I have been wearing it as part of my Christmas apparel when doing presentations at Seniors Residences & in the Christmas weekend at the Fanshawe Pioneer village were I portray an 19th century print shop owner/operator. One thing that appealed at the seniors home (where they keep the thermostat set high) is the light weight material in this vest.

The Material was made thin and cheaply. Once putting it in the cleaner. I do not think I will get too much wear out of it.

Love this vest!
I love this vest. The color, the style, are all just as presented. I have purchased several other vests and have always been more than satisfied with the quality. Keep up the good work.

excellent
This is the second vest I purchased, and just like the first vest, it looks the same as it does on the web site. The color, pattern, and texture of the vest is outstanding. I like the double breasted variety and will be purchasing more in the future.

Got raves about the vest, Love it .. just one thing, not quite long enough in the front, I am not a very large man tho I weigh 270, but 6 ft tall so your vest rides up and allows my waist belt to show. Still looks sharper than anyone else.. Thanks

made the outfit
Many of my friends at the Historical Society Christmas party asked if it were a vintage piece, it was such a compliment to my black vintage tail coat, worn with your gold ascot and white formal shirt it could have been Christmas 1912!

Baker City Vest-Red
This vest was true to the representaion in H.E.'s advert. The colour was spot on & looks smashing on my man. Excellent value, finer material than the tux-4-hire shops. Product arrived on time, and in mint condition. We have since purchased the complete outfit without hesitation. I have forwarded this site to all my friends and associates. Excellent 'toe-in-the-tub' product if you are hessitant to purchase. Merci H.E.! K

This vest is perfect for my fiancé for our wedding...only thing is, since he is 6'4, we ended up having to exchange the vest for one size larger for length...

Very Nice vest
This vest fits well and looks great. Note when purchasing vests - I typicall wear a 42 - yet I will end up with a medium vest as it fits my torso better. Remember, without sleeves there is no real worry about arm movement. The material leaves a bit to be desired - the finish, while nice, also leaves a bit to be desired. The button holes catch loose thread on the buttons. This is fairly typical with the acetate vests. A little more attention to detail on these finish items and this would be five stars.

Fantastic value.
Very lightweight and well made. Striking! Recieved many positive comments the first time I wore it. The vest fits perfectly and even comes with a spare button inside. Thank you.

Nice warm vest
I'm 5'9" and 150 lbs and I ordered a small. It fits perfect with the strap on the back pulled in a little. I've noticed it is warmer than my old thin leather vest. Nice buttons that have a pewter look. Four pockets are nice to have. Looks like a cotton liner, not nylon or synthetic. I wear it with my Dodge City pants. Both are great quality.
