Almost perfect
This is a beautiful vest with nice lines. I have not worn it as often as I planned because both welt pockets are stitched in the middle, and though the description suggests they would hold a watch, the remaining gap is too small. Since a fob watch is a common accessory for such a vest, this was disappointing. The vest is otherwise very good. Editor's note: Pockets are sewn shut for transit and can be fully opened with a seam ripper upon receipt.

Drake vest red
I purchased the vest for my husband for Christmas. He loves the covered buttons. He plays the guitar, and was impressed by the covered buttons because they will not scratch his guitar. He loves the color and cut of the vest. And it looks great on him!!

Drake Vest
I ordered the vest and received it on time and was very pleased with the order. Actually I ordered it from this website and it was just like the picture. The only thing that I have against it that I ordered a large where it fits tight. I think I could have purchased a XL instead. I would like to say to anyone that please know your correct size and if possible order a size up. But after all it accented my suit very well. I thank you Historical Emporium for helping me out.

sizing was big
I sized this according to my chest measurement and found it to be too big. I didn't have time to exchange it so I had a tailor take it in and now it fits better. Be careful with the sizing, and perhaps these run a little big. Take some accurate measurements, talk to the customer service folks, see what they think before you place your order. This looks very handsome, feels a little bit like a costume piece with some of the finishing. Given the price, I wouldn't expect anything to feel like a short cut on this, but I'm only taking one star. Without a coat, this is a really ostentatious waistcoat. Be warned. It's an attention getter. With a coat over top, I get the splashes of gaudiness that I was looking for, lurking beneath a bit of classy modesty. The weight of this is really light, probably the kind of waistcoat you're looking for in warmer climates.

pockets too shallow
This is a good vest; well made from decent materials. Should get 5 stars, but for the pockets. They are way too shallow. Main reason I bought the vest was to accessorize with an antique pocket watch. The standard railroad pocket watch barely fits in the pocket. Another 1/2 to 1 inch depth would make this 5 star.

Great Quality -
This Double breasted vest is of great quality. It is tube shaped rather than tapered so gives a little more room to breath so to speak. Match your size according to the larger; belly or chest. The 36 fit for my husband who normally wears 34 pants. We paired it with two different shirts, the Virgil and Bellamy for different looks. The quality is wonderful, the customer service was 10 out of 10. I would highly recommend any products from Historical Emporium.

Terrific for the price
The vest is surprisingly thick and warm, and the stitching is carefully done. The double buttons are not for show but are all functional. The sizing was also perfect. I am more than pleased with the vest, obviously, and it arrived quickly after purchase.

I was underprepared for just how thick and durable this vest was going to be. It really is a thick canvas material and pairs well with canvas trousers for a formal look that is still functional for work. Do not recommend wearing this on a hot day though, it is seriously a thick fabric. The fabric is so thick I struggle to get my US Marshal badge through the fabric for my cosplay XD!

Very good canvas material and well stitched... Seems durable. I use the items that I buy from Historical Emporium for everyday wear and having access to canvas pants and vests at reasonable prices is very nice. Shipping is fast and customer service is THE best I have delt with lately.... I cannot express how happy I am overall with Customer Service for Historical Emporium. The only small drawback is that sometimes the sizes I want are out of stock at the time I want to order. I have checked back at a later date and been able to find the sizes I want, so I would advise others to be patient and check back.

8 years later
I purchased this vest in October of 2013 and 8 years later it still holds up to the test. I had to have it taken in and the tailor was surprised to work with canvas but it fits even better now than it did the day I bought it. I immediately followed up with the same vest in crimson and will be repurchasing this color again for a richer black. The black color, though faded, is still good 8 years later. All pockets are functional. Purchase with extreme confidence. I have about a 53" gut at 6'3" and the 2XT is an absolute perfect fit.

Vest for Wedding
I bought this vest after being less than impressed with my 'old fashioned' vest from another retailer. I absolutely love this vest! It has a full cotton, tan back to it. The cut is great. Going for a bit of a settler look for my wedding on my side, and this one helped me hit the mark. Strong recommendation for the look and quality.

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.

Great vest
Looks very nice and fits well. I dress in a casual style at work with these style of vest: open, with white shirt, no tie, and black slacks. The only reason for not giving 5-stars would be because the back fastening strap/belt tends to come loose from its buckle and hang down. Easy to fix with a quick tack with threads. They are largely ornamental.

Terrific in every way
I needed this vest for a period-style vaudeville show. It can be difficult to judge how such a stylish vest will look on a large man, so I was a little bit apprehensive. But to my considerable relief it really looks quite good on me (at least my wife says so! And so did the show's director). The vest is made of sturdy, easy maintenance fabric and the subtle floral pattern keeps it understated without being lifeless. In other words, perfect for the stage. I received helpful notifications regarding the processing and shipping of the order and it arrived in a very timely manner. I'm definitely a satisfied customer and I'm sure I'll be back!

The fall and winter months are rapidly coming upon us and there no better time than to breakout the Aberdeen Tweed Vest - Olive Herringbone for the coming colder months ahead. The olive green color is as lush and lively as a bountiful grassy field on a brisk fall day. And its rough but stunning texture harkens with character and gentlemanly appeal. The olive hue gives the vest a sleek air of serious sophistication. If you are looking for a vest that will give your outfit that polished and refined appearance then this vest is definitely for you. It can be worn to formal, informal or semi formal events and its mid weight and breathable construction allows it to be worn year round. Well done Emporium!

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.

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.

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

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.

Middlethorpe Vest
The ordering process was easy and efficient. A lot of items and styles to choose from! I wanted a festive vest for a holiday party. The emerald color was a little darker than anticipated and I was hoping for something a little brighter green. Also, I needed to have the vest altered some, I’m a slim and thin guy. Nonetheless, it is of good quality and I like the fabric and style very much. It will provide the style and “festive dress” requirements for the party. I’m grateful to have found a company and supplier of unique and stylish garments for men, above and beyond the run of the mill.

Sent it back
My husband was pleased with the look of the vest when it arrived, but it did not fit his pear-shaped body. However, we were pleased with the speed of the original mailing and the efficiency with which the return was handled.

Awesome Vest
Purchased this for a party and it came within a week. Great materiel and cut. I bought it big because other vests I have purchased came small. This one was exactly what they said it was going to be. Materiel was great and cut was professional. Vest can be used for multiple purposes, not just as a period costume. I highly recommend this company and will definitely use them again.

Although a little baggy under the arms for my fit, fabric quality much better than I expected. Other re-enactors thought the pattern should also be on the rear, I preferred it the way it was.

Great and durable vest
I have two Scully vests almost identical but in two different colors. I wear them almost every night during the summer months between Memorial Day and Labor Day. They hold up quite well and are very nice looking...Even after all of the wear they get!

beautiful color
We will be attending a Jane Austen Society Regency Ball/Birthday Party soon, and I got my husband this handsome vest to wear with his other items of costuming. It is well made, a beautiful color, the L fits him well. I have a short dark green cape to wear with a white empire dress, and I think we shall make quite the attractive, older couple.

As always, Excellent!
I've very happy with this item, as I've been with all the fine clothing I've bought here. I do, however, wish that there were 'matching spats" and perhaps a bow-tie to go with so many things I've bought...or at least if they would buy some of the material from wherever they come from and offer it to purchase so I can have the spats made to match. We do want our attire to be coordinated you know.

A very nice vest
I have a fondness for double breasted vests. Especially the ones that are different like this one. It fits well and will work with different outfits. It is a little lighter weight than I was expecting but that will be alright in warmer weather and inside buildings.
