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!!!

Ladies Classic Canvas Vest
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!

Very Nice Vest
This is a beautiful vest. I love it! I do wish the buttons were sewn on a little better. 2 fell off when I first tried it on, so I sewed them back on and also had to sew the remaining buttons on a little bit better. Not a huge deal though. Very well made otherwise. Love the design!

Like it very much.
I was wanting a dressy vest for my split skirt or even jeans. This will do the trick.

Wonderful vest
I received my vest in a very short time, and I'm pleased with the quality of the fabric and workmanship. It fits perfectly and will be a nice addition to my Victorian clothing collection which I wear at fairs and other venues when I demonstrate my craft of rug hooking.

Very Smart
I love this vest! The moment I put it on, I felt a boost in my confidence, perhaps a jolt of that "bully" spirit. This will be my go-to piece for big meetings. Exemplary tailoring, beautiful fabrics. This experience with the Emporium has secured them a devoted new customer.

Excellent Item
I have purchased several items from Historical Emporium and they have all been fabulous including this vest. The detail, which is a bit hard to see in the picture, is beautiful. As usual I received it really quickly and in excellent condition. I'm never disappointed in their items.

What a great vest!
The vest was a lovely rich black. It felt good when I wore it and I got a lot of compliments. The quality is excellent. I called to get the order sent faster. The person on the phone gave great service and it arrive earlier than I expected.

Not correct
The vest arrived and the bottom part fit but the bust was huge and distorted with a big gap at the shoulders and armpits. Because it is cut for a man who is fairly even from shoulders to bust. . I noticed that there was no bust dart as almost all ladiesí vests and jackets have to fit the female form. It would take more $10 to send it backÖ.25% of the purchase price. I am trying to get a bust dart put it in. Unhappy. Women cannot wear a manís vest without a bust dart because while the bust sticks out the material, it need to be fitted for the smaller shoulders and underarms. The mark of someone who is cutting a design for men, not women.

Stripes Forever!
I've wanted a classy black and white striped vest for ages, so when I saw this one during the vest sale I had to snag it. At first I ordered a small, because I was having a sick, brainless moment (I'm normally a medium). Having then read some reviews on other vests that suggested this one might run small, I waited for my package to find out whether I would be calling and asking for one size up or two. I did not have to wait long at all. The small not only didn't fit, it didn't come close, so one very pleasant call to customer service later I packaged up my goof-up and shipped it back in favor of a large. The new vest is beautiful. It fits wonderfully, with the exception of a small amount of gaping at the underarm, courtesy of my nice, boyish figure. This will take about five seconds with a sewing machine to fix. Seriously, tiny alteration. Everything else, the length, the waist, you name it, is utterly perfect. I really recommend this vest. Truly. It's classic, timeless, and well constructed from sturdy fabric. If you take care of it, it will take care of you, your daughter, and your grand daughter, just the way well made clothing should.
