Every single item I have EVER purchased from H.E. has always exceeded my expectations! The images on the site do not even come close to how the actual products are. But this one was a true topper! This time I was blown away X PI!!!! Thank you H.E. for constantly making the steampunk characters I have designed for myself come TO LIFE! Jeffery Scott (1019)

Good product
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.

Outstanding quality
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.

Happy Dragon Vest Custmer
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!

Very good quaity
This is a well made and historically accurate vest. I like the way it fits but the material, though cotton, is heavy. I thought it would be much more lightweight for the summer which is why I got the cotton instead of wool. They are closer to a canvas. Otherwise, I would give it 5 stars.

The vest is as promised. The material is heavier than I expected and it is warmer than I expected, but that is probably my lack of understanding. I think that the vest will be a reliable garment that I can use for reenactments for many years.

Got a gift of some cash & decided to buy this to add to my vest collection. The quality was just as good as all the other vests I've ordered. The only caveat is to be sure of your size. This was one that I got the XXL as the chest size called for it. It fit perfectly.

This Is The Vest To Buy!
Let me make this perfectly clear: I'm on old school biker with a number of leather cuts. I have always been a vest person, preferably leather. But when my youngest daughter began planning her wedding this summer she really trimmed her budget in a number of areas and wanted to keep things simple for the wedding party. She asked me to wear slacks, a vest, dress shirt and tie to give her away. The wedding will be outdoors in late July in the South (hot & humid). I wanted a vest that would breathe as much as possible in the heat but it also had to be well made and stylish. When I sent some links of the Livingston Black Brushed Cotton Vest to my daughter she was absolutely elated by it. She rarely gets excited about things, but she was certainly excited about how this vest looked. This vest looks and fits amazing. The crew at Historical Emporium treated me like a king with stellar customer service. I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase, especially when it makes my daughter and wife happy.

Nicely done
Wonderful jet black brushed fabric. Buttons nicely stitched. Careful wearing a pocket watch with this vest: If the vest is a little tight around the middle, the roundness of the watch will form a slight mated circle visible from the front. The nature of the depth of black of the fabric is the cause -- use a lint brush to make the area jet black as the surrounding material. This is a very warm fabric.

Dapper Dude
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.

Sturdy Quality
This 'duck' vest is sturdy, handsome and practical. Certainly not a cheesy costume piece. Purchased for general use/wear, I expect it will serve a very long time given the quality of the materials and the usefulness of the pockets. Very pleased that it comes in a 'tall' version, the fit is just right on my 6'1" frame.

Believe the tape
I've had this vest for a month and I'm very satisfied. High quality construction in tough, heavy canvas. A word about size. I had to send back my first vest because it was too big. I ordered the size that corresponded to a 50, the size I get for suits or sports coats. What I forgot is that's the size that fits at the shoulders then they take it in from there. A vest doesn't have shoulders. When I re-ordered, I went to Wal-mart, bought a tape for $2, measured like they said to in the instructions and ordered that size. It fit perfectly. So my advice? Don't guess. Get a tape. Measure with the tape. Believe the tape. Order what the tape says. A word about pockets. I wear this almost daily as a real work vest and, like others here, I wish it had inside pockets for a phone and/or wallet. It doesn't, so we'll deal with it. I ordered pants to go with the vest and when I took them to be hemmed, I asked the seamstress if she could make inside pockets for me. She was happy to, and since the vest is fully lined, she was able to easily do so with nothing showing from the outside. Looks great. She charged me $20 for the pockets, which I don't if that seems a good deal to you but was worth every penny for me. Buy with confidence.

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. 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

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!

Very impressed
I had been trying to source vests in Australia for a number of months with no luck. I found Historical Emporium by pure chance and decided to give them a go. I ordered this vest along with Humboldt Stripe Vest and Classic Canvas Work Vest - Black in a single order as the three with shipping from the States was still more reasonable than anything that I'd been able to find in Australia. I had deliberately ordered a size up to be safe and on arrival I was very impressed with the quality, style and the time that the vests took to jump the puddle from the US. My tailor when I went to have them taken in (yes I probably should have trusted the sizing listed) also commented on the quality and styling; when measuring and after making the adjustments. Thank you very much (and yes I've now ordered additional vests), highly recommend both the service and product. I'll be back again.

Dashing in 1830 California
I had a dual purpose for ordering this vest. First, I am a volunteer with the California State Park System at Monterey State Historic Park in Monterey, California. I help to put on a program called "Hands On" which teaches 4th grade students about life in early Alta California in the 1830's. One of the "tasks" I teach the children is branding cattle. I already had this vest in tan canvas, but it was always getting sooty from the branding iron fires. I didn't want to eventually ruin that one with multiple washings, so I ordered this vest to show less ash and soot during a week's presentations. Secondly, I am also a Civil War reenactor and this vest will be often worn with my Confederate Marine officer's uniform when it's too hot to wear my wool vest under my wool frock coat, or at a period ball when I want to be just a bit more formal in my Southern gentleman and officer portrayal.

The vest is made from sturdy, heavy weight material. The sewing is excellent. The waist adjustment strap is much sturdier than the normal, cheap vest. The design is comfortable. The vest may seem a little expensive, but quality of materials and workmanship make it an excellent value. B

A real double breasted waistcoat! Love everything about the way it looks, my only complaint is that it doesn't breath well, or at all really. Definitely a winter garment. Other than that it's perfect. The pockets line up well, stitching is perfect, and the buttons feel very sturdy. I would say another win for Western Emporium, and myself.

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

Fits perfect. I'm 5'10 and weigh 170 pounds With a muscular build. The medium is just right. Not to loose at all. The buttons and finish to the vest look very sharp.

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.

Color
The vest is of course great quality as I have come to expect. Fit is perfect, however with the light on the pictures it gave tje appearance that the color was that of a lighter blue. It is in fact very dark. It is almost a denim vest. Not exactly what I had expected.

Humbolt - well made, runs slightly large
Just got my Humboldt vest, this is a very well made and sharp-looking vest. Nice heavy material, in a dark slate blue/grey, with pleasing stripes. This one does run slightly large - I ordered a XXL, and have a 50" chest and stand 6'2". There is definitely room in the chest, and more in the waist, so order your natural size at the most. Would definitely recommend this vest.

A vision in stripes! (Part 1)
I've never owned a suit that wasn't black, or a black pinstripe; the Humboldt stripe vest (and matching trousers) makes for an excellent change, and one that stands out and gets you noticed. The fit is generous, the colours compliment each other very well (and the buttons match the stripe perfectly), and the texture of the fabric makes the waistcoat suitable for casual wear, as well as part of something more formal, or as I do, for work, on a regular basis (I match the Humboldt vest and trousers with the Livingston black brushed cotton town coat, black boots and a white shirt and black tie combo as in the pictures above - trust me. It works). If you're thinking of buying it, believe me, it'll make a very fine addition to your wardrobe.

Good Casual vest
This one was a bit more like a blue jean vest than I expected but it works well on more casual work days with khaki's as the stripes blend in to match.

excellent for pocket watch wearers
I purchased this vest so I can more frequently wear my grandfathers Hamilton pocket watch and the vest is excellent. Great construction and plenty of pockets for my watch (Hamilton 974 sidewinder from 1908) as well as glasses, pens notepad etc. I like this vest because it wears great with jeans and is durable for frequent wear. The lapels give it a nice style and I am very pleased with this purchase!

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.

A very nicely made article of clothing,no doubt. And also fits true to size. This is the 2nd I have purchased. A shame that all colors arent available in tall though. This tall seems to fit a lot better with jeans. I have the on in crimson also..and the color is wonderful, but its not available in tall. Wish it was. But at any rate..a great garment.

dyed it
The color looked terribly with khaki pants. So I tried to dye it black, it came out dark brown. It looks good. Thread and label didn't change color. Must be made of some kind of plastic. So it's dark brown with tan stitching. Looks good.

Great Vest in all respects
The vest is high quality, and the construction was well thought out. There is a challenge in designing historical type vests in having them look authentic, but not be so thick that they are too hot. Emporium has struck a great balance. The fabric itself is very nice as is the construction and fit.

I think it's lovely...
I ordered the Kendall Vest for my husband because his wardrobe has a distinct shortage of vests. I think this vest looks really good on him. He was a little put out that it wasn't as snug as he'd hoped (at a 39.5", he falls between sizes; the small is too tight, but he feels the medium is a little big. Frankly, I think he's just being picky ^.~) Otherwise, a lovely vest!

My husband wore this vest for his daughters "cowboy" wedding and everyone loved it. It is well made, fit my husband just right and he will wear it for Victorian reinactments. Expedited shipment had it here just when we needed it. This is at least our 10th purchase fron historical emporium and each time we have had great customer service, prompt shipping and high quality wearable garments. Thanks!

Well Designed
I really enjoy this vest. It goes well with "modern attire" and is good for those who like to stand out. I caution that the measurement they give for the vest is exacting. You best add an inch or two when figuring out your size.

perfect except for minor fixes needed.
The pockets in this vest were sewn shut at the factory, but this was easy to fix by cutting the stitches and hand sewing them properly. Unless you are as obese as most people these days, (I have a 30" waist.) it will be necessary to have the vest taken in because it is designed for someone with a pot belly. Still, I highly recommend this vest. It is a blessing that it is available in a man made materiel that does not require boiling caterpillars to death (silk). It is a masterpiece. If you have a pot belly, get off your fundament and start exercising.
