Lighter than expected, well built
XXL fits larger than expected, but not drastically. Canvas feels durable. Lighter and cooler than expected. Pockets are reasonably sized and useful.

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!

It's a heavier, thicker vest with a straight cut and round bottom. The fit was almost perfect, and I keep getting complimented on it. I may need to find a 'reason' to purchase another.

Abilene Vest
Historical Emporium has a knack of having a the most unique line of fashionable cloths on the planet. The Abilene vest is one of them. A very well made vest and it looks great. It lends itself to bringing a little class to any function you attend. Personally, I prefer natural fibers with the same backing as the front, longer "tall" versions and front-peaks, and wish that these features be extended throughout many of their lines, but the straight cut work vest also has its place. I highly recommend this vest to anyone who wants to improve their appearance and reputation.

The perfect everyday waist coat
A perfect waistcoat for everyday wear, and also for wearing with a kilt. Nice tailoring, fits well, and is very comfortable. Not quite as stiff as the similar canvas vests (which soften with wearing), a bit lighter, and just a little more formal. Colours go well with many of the shirts available trough Historic Emporium. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

Very functional
Great vest, but it's a bit hard to iron the old fashioned way. The pockets make it great for organizing all that crap in your pocket. Watch out for guys who are 44 or 46, as they could go L or XL. I got the tight one, but it helps my back.

Plenty of pockets
I bought this vest for wear mainly as an underlayer to the Model 1876 U.S. Army blouse for Indian Wars reenacting. This blouse has no external pockets (unlike modern military uniforms), and only a single internal pocket. The Abilene vest, worn as an under layer, provides pockets enough for all of the small items which I need to have close to hand when reenacting.

Dark but quality
This vest is darker than it appears, but that doesn't mean you won't have a handsome navy blue tone coming through. It can look black in poor lighting, but most of the time it'll be noticeably blue. Material and buttons are sturdy. I recommend adding a pocket watch to this, especially with a silver chain.

This vest is spot on. Had to workout an exchange because I needed a tall - MEASURE THE LENGTH! You'll save yourself the trouble. Once I got this vest though I was sold. The quality is great. Nice solid canvas with a beautiful texture. It's already starting to soften and bend more easily with some wear. The buttons and back strap are all super solid. It's just super well constructed, great fabric quality, excellent fit. I'll be back for more. This is exactly what I was looking for. Great quality at a great price. Thanks!!

Great Quality and Price
This is my second purchase from HE, and I'm as pleased this time as the first. The vest is a "sturdy" weight canvas (love it), and very well made. I bought a XXL and the size is perfect for my big torso. My only regret is that I didn't order this as a "Long". It comes right to my waist (what it is intended to do), but being a "big guy" I prefer something that extends below my belt-line a bit. The added 2" in the long version would make this perfect for me. However, I'm NOT going to return it, because it will inspire me to lose a few pounds. Shipping was next day (WOW!!!!), and the price is UNBEATABLE! I will be buying more from this company.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Vest-Victorian
The material and fit of this vest was excellent for the Victorian look I was after, essentially emulating Darcy of you know where....:} The ladies loved it at the Victorian ball, and even two gents commented on how 'proper' it looked. What makes this vest special is the subtle blue paisley pattern, not overstated. I did order this vest one size larger to compensate for the bulkier shirt I was wearing. No issues.....good value...

River blue vest
I am very pleased with this vest! It's a great additional to anyone's wardrobe! Everyone is right to say the pics does not do this vest justice! It has a nice rich blue undertone that does not make this vest to flamboyant. My only complaint is that you the pockets are sewn shut, but that's most of their vests and all you need is the right tool or visit your local tailor to rectify! Overall, another awesome purchase from historical emporium!

Fine Vest
Just reiterating some of the points of others here. The vest's material and workmenship are great. The colors are muted and not flashy but the designs beautiful. The fit is a little different then other vests ive bought on this site, a little wider in the lower back, but nothing severe. I found i could adjust it down to fit me pretty well. (Im a large, i know the reviewer before me had different problems in a small) Finally be aware the pockets here are mostly for show. You can fit about a thumb in and thats it. I was expecting deeper pockets, but not a huge deal. Overall A good vest and one i plan on wearing alot!

A nice vest for formal occasions.
The River Trail Vest looks and feels quite nice. It has a durable build and the price is great. The downsides, it is sized a little larger then most other vests, especially in the waist, so even ordering a small, it was a little too large on me. I had to adjust it myself to get the fit I really wanted. The material, while quite elegant, also feels like it would be easier to mess up or damage then other waistcoats I've ordered. Definitely a great vest for fancy occasions but perhaps not so good for every day wear. Still, a good vest and I'm quite happy with the purchase. Maybe just a slight size adjustment or making the back-strap have a great range of adjustment.

Even better than the photo
I was totally pleased with the River Trail Vest. The photo doesn't do justice to the front fabric, which is a deep and elegant indigo with a subtle black pattern: most suitable for a dignified gent! The buttons give just the right touch of understated sparkle. With the Callahan Frock Coat and the Silk Puff Tie: perfect!

River Trail Vest is great!!!
The Blue River Trail Vest has quickly become my favorite. It looks absolutely great. The color is not too flamboyant. It is just right. Workmanship is first class. Sell this is several different colors and I just might buy them all.

Excellent Vest
I purchased a large in another style, and then exchanged it for this vest in a medium. It has good quality fabric all around.

missing real pocket for watch
I like this vest and it looks great with my outfit. However, I was very disappointed to find that the watch I bought with the outfit would not go into the vest pocket because the pockets are dummies. I would think for the money there should be a real pocket on this vest.

Great vest with great details
The vest arrived in perfect condition in a very timely manner. I'm very impressed with the quality detailing of this vest. The contrasting piping/edging is very well sewn and applied, and the construction of the garment is excellent. The pockets were not basted shut, and they did not pucker a bit. The look is rich and goes great with a nice jacket and shirt. Ultimately, the vest fit me like a glove, so I'm a happy man.

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.

Classic canvas vest
The vest of a solid working man, not some brocade wearing effeminate banker, a man's man vest. Sturdy, well made, durable. Feels like body armor. Get one.

Looks and fits great
This Vest looks and fits great. I wanted to get 3 but they only had 1 left in stock, which probably say something about how popular this vest is. But I will keep checking back until they get more in stock.

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.

So happy
I grew up on old western and I have always liked the style of the vests they wore. This vest is perfect, it has that old style and looks great as casual wear or dressed up. It is everything the discription says. I could not be happier
