I now own and wear daily several pairs of 1800s trousers and have acquired this, my second vest. Have never been a vest fan but I am now--this and my other vest are in daily use now and look spectacular--very well made, too.

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.

This Vest is Amazing!
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

Great Vest for Reasonable Price
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!

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.

An elegant style
I was skeptical at first, but for the price I thought I had to try it and I'm very happy with it now. The fabric is stiffer than I expected, but less than the military version from the same manufacturer. I also own the red version of this model. The ensemble with my frock coat and my cane gives me a very gentlemanly look that I am looking for. I recommend it to you.

Vest too short
This is a nice quality vest but it is way too short. For a size 5xl it is about 4 inches to short. I am 6' 1" tall this vest would fit some one that is about 5' 6". I have a 34" inseam for my jeans so it is not like I have a long upper body. The bottom of this vest ends up about 3 to 4 inches from my waste. I doubt I will ever wear this vest do to it being so short. Had this vest fit as it is showed in the pictures I would have given it 5 stars the quality of material and look of it is very good.

loose fit
i am a bit disappointed that the fit of the vest is not as represented in the photo. The photo shows a nicely tapered fit, although the actual cut is much more straight and becomes too loose at the waist. There is a buckle in the lower back for taking up some of the extra material, but it becomes much to bunchy in the back when the front looks better. The canvas material will also take some working in so it feels more supple.

This is a nice looking and well made vest. I ordered by the measurements and the first one was too small for my husband. I re-ordered and sent the first one back as a return. The transaction and refund were quick. The only problem is that paying all the shipping both ways is a little costly.

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.

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.

So who's Drake?
I don't know and I don't care. The vest is just as advertised. It fits well, it's classy, it's smart - what's not to like? My only "complaint" is that the pockets are *too* well sewn up. I was unable to safely undo them before I wore the vest. Ah, well, I tucked my pocket watch into the waistband of my pants as all was well. Still, the stitching is really finished work, not easy to undo. And frankly, I would bet that most of us ordering these items are wearing pocket watches. And that's the worst I have to say. Don't feel uneasy about buying this vest, it's quite worth it!

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 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.

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.

BUY... THIS... VEST!!!
SO I'm ito the old west as virtually all customers who come here are, and I also like things to be rugged and heavy-duty enough to last. I also like all-black, and ONLY all-black. And finally, may your respective higher powers of choice bless mother nature's invention of pure cotton. So, with those things said, I can proudly say: I'm happy with this vest as part of my old west style regular everyday wear. I wear my old west stuff (now including this vest) while doing such ordinary things as grocery shopping at walmart once a month. I wear this vest and the rest of my all-black old west all-cotton outfit with my black wool felt low-derby hat, my cotagonal-cornered rectangular-lensed old west sunglasses, my square-toed black leather cavalry boots, my brushed stainless steel mechanical wind-up old west style pocket watch--and so on and so on-- whenever I go to town. And all criticism as to my personal style, be damned. The material this vest is made of has the twill knit of dickies work pants, but feels at least twice as heavy-grade there as, like I'd say equivalent in heavywheight density to modern day cotton duck canvas. It also feels just soft enough to feel nice, yet its texture still has the simultaneous crispness (if that makes sense to you) to also feel as-- if not far more-- durable as any Dickies-like work pants. Yet, thise vest (and now that I've sampled its fabric in person, the entire Livingston black brushed cotton clothing line sold here at H.E.) is...

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.

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.

It's swell!
You're a heel, if ya don't buy this vest! Don'tcha know that if you're not in the right outfit that ya could get really give your sugar to a sweet moll. Don't be a sucker chum, get your flashy new threads from these fella's because they're on the level. Fiddlesticks to any would be competitors, there knock off threads are applesauce. Only GE has the goods that will have you on the make!

Wore this as soon as I got it for a Carnival themed wedding. Awesome! Wish you had a bigger size, or it was bigger in the back though.

Awesome Vest!
This vest is surely a show stopper. Got it for a production of Chicago and it always gets the "wow" from the audience. Makes for an awesome Barbershop Quartet outfit as well. Also, it arrived like lightning, so all around great products and service!

Love this vest
It's too bad we're not still walking around in the height of turn of the century fashion. This vest runs true to size, like all of the garments I've purchased from Historical Emporium. It feels good. The pockets are real, not just a couple of fake seems. The pocket watch hangs perfectly on it. Length is on point, love it!

This vest is perfect!
I purchased this vest for a role in a play. It goes great with the Victorian French Cuff shirt, hat spat, and spats I bought for my costume. Beautiful and it fits well!

Great for Santa!
When you first got this in, I hesitated a day too long... Another Santa spotted this, bought his, and posted links online to the Santa community. They bought them all out. As soon as I saw it again, I bought one on the spot. Wore it for several hours last weekend, along with my Gambler's hat, and it was a great look. Got several compliments. Thanks!

Flattering cut!
This is a very well cut vest and very flattering on. The canvas material is high quality and it is constructed extremely well. The metal buttons are also of quality and are very attractive. They definitely add to the look of the vest. I can't wait to wear this! I'm a women's size 2 or 4 and I bought the small. Love it!!!

Just got the Ladies classic canvas vest in black - and it fits very well! Well made, sturdy, and a nice fitted shape with the back belt tied. I am a size 14-16, and the size 40 is a perfect fit for me. Will wear it with both my Dickens Faire costume and my Edwardian walking skirt!

Perfect!
The vest was exactly what I was lookin for. Sizing is precisely what I was expecting. Quality appears to be above average and I expect several years of use from this new vest.

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!

Quality product
This is a great vest, it looks nice and is made from high quality fabric. Unfortunately the vest was extremely large in the chest area, while it actually fits well around the waist. Therefore alteration was needed, which was not quite cheap.

PERFECT!
What can I say? This item is PERFECT! It's so very rare that I find a nice Victorian/western style vest that not only looks great, but fits well. This is all of that. Beautifully made, and highly recommended, and unlike the more expensive Victorian vests you find at Halloween stores, and various costume shops... this vest has REAL pockets! This vest works for me on multiple levels too... for my Victorian garb, my western garb, and even worn with my modern day suit. It makes my two piece into a three piece that is quite dashing, and it's so well made, I won't worry about it ever wearing out. Highly HIGHLY recommended.
