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.

I am a competitive chuck wagon cook and must dress in period correct clothing that could have been worn on the trail. I have several other pieces of clothing, and the vest really compliments the look. It fit well, and is easy to maintain.

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.

An excellent addition to my wardrobe
I originally found this when I was looking for some accessories to go with a hat I'd found at goodwill. Unfortunately, it wasnt as good a color match as I'd hoped, but this is not a bad thing! The vest is comfortable, lightweight, and durable enough to wear while doing blue collar work. I'm now going out and looking for shirts, ties, and other accessories to showcase my new vest. I'd particularly recommend pairing this vest with any of the canvas pants Historical Emporium sells. Even if it's a different color, the matching fabric type helps to pull the whole thing together (and the crimson of the vest is a bit saddened, so it's a decent neutral color to build a palette around).

Great waistcoat, but there's a catch.
The waistcoat is of excellent construction, very durable, and pretty to look at. However, as others have noted, it IS a bit on the high waisted side. Me and the person I ordered it for share the same chest measurement, yet while it fits my 5'10" frame well, when he, being 6'1" wears it, there is a visible 1.5" gap between the waist of his pants and the hem of the vest. This is no strike against the vest itself, as it is of excellent quality, but if it could be made a BIT taller, it would have been perfect. Still looks good as the finishing touch on his War Doctor cosplay :) Thank you!

Even Better
I bought this for a barrel-chested fiddler who is used to wearing reproduction clothing and who is VERY picky about fit & appearance. He performed in it every week-end from Thanksgiving to Christmas and absolutely LOVES it! The colour, the cut, and the finishing is all first-rate. The fabric is exactly what is described - a lightweight canvas - so do not mistake it for dressy. It was perfect for our musician, who was in a mid-19th-century tavern on the waterfront.

This isn't costume quality. It's truly wearable and durable clothing. I'm very impressed with the cut and feel of this vest. The attention to detail on every part -- the stitching, inner lining, and buttons -- is spot on. When I put it on, I felt like wearing it on a normal basis and not just for the costume I was putting together for it. I highly recommend this product. I'll defiantly be back to pick up other items should the quality remain this high.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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 Abilene vest was exactly what I was looking for. It is well tailored and looks great. I ordered a second Abilene vest of a different color within a week of receiving this one.

Fast shipping and a clean beautiful vest. Fits "okay" but that's my fault on measuring. Historical Emporium rocks!

I often have trouble finding a vest that fits. This fits perfectly. Very happy with this vest, so much so I am looking at buying more of other styles!

Excellent Canvas Waistcoat
This is a very well-made piece, suitable for real work or for wearing almost anywhere. It's not a costume piece by any means. It's fairly heavy, but it never feels hot or restricting. This is my second waistcoat from Historical Emporium, and I'll be getting another soon: I'm getting into the habit of wearing one almost every day!

Amazing quality and workmanship. this is my fourth order from them and I am never let down. This vest will last for years if not generations. It does run a touch on the larger size. I buy for stage productions and they get quite a beating. but these are well beyond stage quality and will fit nicely into any wardrobe.

Searching for Edwardian clothing in support of a significant competitive production, Historical Emporium clearly has a corner on the market. The vest choices were almost overwhelming but, by process of elimination, we finally settled on this brown, double breasted version. Love the styling, the double row of buttons, pockets, feel, and square at the waistline. More elegant to see and wear than the description. Excellent choice!

Frontier Suave
Got it for my adult son for Christmas, he's decided he likes vests now for every day wear. I think he wants to become a hobbit. Anyhoo, it was delivered in timely fashion, as ordered, and I asked him how it is and he said "frontier suave". He likes it! He picked it out himself from the on line catalog and forwarded the order form to me, ready to submit. Everything worked slick! I've never even seen it yet, but I'm satisfied.

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.

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.

I purchased this vest with the hope of being able to wear it outside of costuming. I am not disappointed, the fit and finish on the vest is great and assume it will hold up as any garment should. Thanks for great product.

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!
