Excellent quality
I am impressed with the quality of this vest. I was hoping that I’d get something that I would be able to touch up and use in a few weeks. But this baby arrived in perfect condition! No loose threads, no button holes that are too tight, no problems at all! The fabric makes it so versatile. I wear the vest without a jacket, and I wear it with a suit jacket. No matter how you wear it, it just looks classy!

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!

Amazing vest!!!
The craftsmanship is superb!! I was very impressed with the overall construction and look. So many times when I order big and tall items I'm disappointed. Not with this vest, sizing guide was dead on. Thank you Historical Emporium, you will have me as a customer again!!

It's perfect
I am a pastor and occasionally I have an opportunity to do a service that requires a vintage Parsons outfit. I'm going to be speaking at the 100th anniversary of the Easter sunrise service at a famous rock in my city that has been used by traveling preachers since 1837. My other vest was getting a little too tight so I needed a bigger one.

Another satisfied Customer
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.

Great looking and fitting vest
We purchased four of your Drake vests for our barbershop quartet. Since we had some demanding size requirements we were really pleased to have a broad array of sizes with which to work. The vests were well constructed and provided a look of elegance for our members. We are very pleased with our purchase.

I feared the vest would have look cheap or a piece best worn in Halloween. Yet, the material and look is certainly worth the peice of admission. It can be readily worn without feee it looks like a cheap cosplay garment. The process was seamless with very quick delivery to the northeast

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
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.

Comfortable and well-made
I am a professional carriage driver and was looking for Victorian period clothing to wear at work. I have absolutely loved this vest. It is constructed of very high-quality material, stitching, etc. It fits me very well. I have a 43-inch chest, and the size Large Livingston vest fits me comfortably and attractively. The only consideration I did not account for was the fact that the brushed cotton material picks up the horse hair easily and I simply keep a lint-roller on-hand to deal with it. I would happily recommend Historical Emporium and this vest to others.

I'm a big guy... 6'3" with a couple of extra pounds, so every time I order a vest it's a gamble of whether it will be wide and short, or baggy and too long, etc etc. This vest was not only a perfect fit (shoulders, chest, waist and length), but the quality was apparent and I'm VERY happy with it. Highly recommended and well worth the $$.

Gold Star Chic
I most recently had the opportunity to attend a “Black Tie Chic” event. I did not want to purchase an entire tuxedo- what do to? I turned to the myriad of shirts and vests at Historical Emporium to put together a “look”. To include the Tuxedo-look of the Sinclair Edwardian Club Collar Shirt and Gold Klondike Vest. Well let me tell you I looked sensational- some folks came up to me and said I looked dapper. I was worried about size but the vest xxl fit fine- I did have a bit of a problem with the vest - one of the metal buttons was not sealed closed properly in the back - it had a very sharp metal opening- which actually when I put on the vest - sliced through the thread of the back of the button- within seconds- button was on floor. I have thought of sending back vest- but will try to send to a tailor to try to repair. Otherwise- vest was as advertised- great fit. Bottom line - I will definitely be a repeat customer. Thank you.

5'11 200 lbs XL good fit
Twice is a Charm! I ordered a Large the first time and returned it today due to it was too small. Soon as I received it I ordered a Extra Large, it arrived today and is great. Will be ordering the Green one next. Quality Vest for sure.

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.

Vest was perfect!
I used this as a costume piece in a Christmas play. It was just what the costumer wanted to see!

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!

I wear a vest all year long, and have many vests. This one is for more dress up occasions and it did the trick. Was impressed with the quality and look.I will be back for other items.

Love this vest!
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.

I have looked for a canvas double breasted vest for a long time, and was unable to find one, until I found Historical Emporium on a search for another item (which I also purchased from them) and was pleased with the vest and its look!

Perfect, and not heavy at all!
Soft, nice quality velvet, not heavy (like I thought it would be), very comfortable, and looks even better in real life than it does in the pictures!

Quality Product
This vest is perfect for an outfit I am wearing with a vintage "Loden" jacket I recently got from the UK. I was really happy with the great fit, and quality of the waistcoat, and as always, Historical Emporium provided fast, great service on an affordable, quality product. Many thanks!

Love it!
Pretty much exactly what I was expecting. Like previous reviews said, this thing is BLACK, it makes everything else look grey by comparison. Love it!

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.

Surprising Quality!
This recent purchase was part of my first order from Historical Emporium. I am astonished by the quality of the workmanship and the excellent fit. At the back of my mind I guess I was wondering,'costume?' I was wrong! This vest is something I will be wearing for years to come!

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,
