This waistcoat always receives compliments when I wear it - it looks very fine indeed and fits well; and the tone-on-tone texture is another standout of its appearance. A very fine summer-weight dress waistcoat I think looks equally good paired with either a black or a burgundy coat.

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

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.

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!

Vest for Wedding
I bought this vest after being less than impressed with my 'old fashioned' vest from another retailer. I absolutely love this vest! It has a full cotton, tan back to it. The cut is great. Going for a bit of a settler look for my wedding on my side, and this one helped me hit the mark. Strong recommendation for the look and quality.

Very Pleased
The last night of a planned overseas vacation, we will be celebrating our anniversary at a fairly posh restaurant in London. They absolutely require men in long sleeves and would like a tie and jacket. Not wanting to lug a jacket all over England, I purchased this herringbone vest for him. With dress pants and a bold tie, the vest turns from Old West to English Country Gentleman. We are pleased with the construction and the color.

Middlethorpe Vest
The ordering process was easy and efficient. A lot of items and styles to choose from! I wanted a festive vest for a holiday party. The emerald color was a little darker than anticipated and I was hoping for something a little brighter green. Also, I needed to have the vest altered some, I’m a slim and thin guy. Nonetheless, it is of good quality and I like the fabric and style very much. It will provide the style and “festive dress” requirements for the party. I’m grateful to have found a company and supplier of unique and stylish garments for men, above and beyond the run of the mill.

Purchased this for a party and it came within a week. Great materiel and cut. I bought it big because other vests I have purchased came small. This one was exactly what they said it was going to be. Materiel was great and cut was professional. Vest can be used for multiple purposes, not just as a period costume. I highly recommend this company and will definitely use them again.

I've very happy with this item, as I've been with all the fine clothing I've bought here. I do, however, wish that there were 'matching spats" and perhaps a bow-tie to go with so many things I've bought...or at least if they would buy some of the material from wherever they come from and offer it to purchase so I can have the spats made to match. We do want our attire to be coordinated you know.

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.

Perfect cut & fit
This is the perfect everyday vest, I had to get the extra large and Iím glad I did. It fits me perfectly in the pecs and tapers nicely at the waist utilizing the strap in the back to tighten the look. XL fit best, Iím 5í11 broad shouldered at 220. Quality dense fabric gives this an authentic look of a Wild West/Victorian working vest.

Abilene Vest
Historical Emporium has a knack of having a the most unique line of fashionable cloths on the planet. The Abilene vest is one of them. A very well made vest and it looks great. It lends itself to bringing a little class to any function you attend. Personally, I prefer natural fibers with the same backing as the front, longer "tall" versions and front-peaks, and wish that these features be extended throughout many of their lines, but the straight cut work vest also has its place. I highly recommend this vest to anyone who wants to improve their appearance and reputation.

Not quite as stiff as the similar canvas vests (which soften with wearing), a bit lighter, and just a little more formal. Colours go well with many of the shirts available trough Historic Emporium. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

A bit darker but still nice
The item is lovely, I've been wearing it quite a lot in fact. The color of the item was a bit darker in Real Life than it is on the Picture but it doesn't matter much to me. I still love it. and I still love the quality this store gives

Very functional
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.

Wear it all the time Now
I originally purchased this vest as part of a Victorian outfit to wear at a special occasion, but I like it so much that it's become a regular part of my wardrobe.

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.

Great looking vest
Great material and color of vest. Picked up a medium and found it to be a good fit with minimal adjustment.

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.

You can find better
I am currently putting together a wardrobe for my eccentric friends wedding and have bought numerous articles of clothing from this website. Mostly Iíve been impressed of quality even if Iím put off a bit by the prices. However the vest seems Ö. Ummm.. cheap. I had bout a gold vest on Amazon complete with tie for under 30.00 with FREE shipping.It fitted fine but the buttons were poorly stitched to vest So I opted for one from historical emporium for 65.00 plus 15.00 for shipping. Quality wise it was no different than 29.00 one from Amazon ( though to be fair buttons were better attached. However I miss judged size. It didnít fit.At that point I had to return it.at my cost for shipping. New one was sent but again with shipping charge ! Sooo long story short. I spent 65.00 for vest and 3x15.00 for back and forth shipping. (Really?!!) 65.00+45.00=110.00 for a single vest that I could have technically done without. With as much money as Iíve spent recently with them coat-157.00 Pants-60.00? Shirt- 50.00+ Spats & tie 50.00. Plus 3 separate shipping charges. Ps shirt is nice but paper thin and practically see through. This place definitely has some nice stuff and overall Iím happy with the outfit Iíve pieced together. My advice get your shirt and vests somewhere else.however ,if you donít , at least order it all at one time and avoid the shipping charges .and, if you gotta send some back do it all at one time as well or youíll pay for shipping...

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!

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!

Very stylish
My wife gifted me this vest for Christmas, I have to say I'm overjoyed with the material and style. This will be a great vest for date night or any other occasion I need to dress up more than just casual. The fit, the quality, the overall construction, just perfect.

Well Done!
The fall and winter months are rapidly coming upon us and there no better time than to breakout the Aberdeen Tweed Vest - Olive Herringbone for the coming colder months ahead. The olive green color is as lush and lively as a bountiful grassy field on a brisk fall day. And its rough but stunning texture harkens with character and gentlemanly appeal. The olive hue gives the vest a sleek air of serious sophistication. If you are looking for a vest that will give your outfit that polished and refined appearance then this vest is definitely for you. It can be worn to formal, informal or semi formal events and its mid weight and breathable construction allows it to be worn year round. Well done Emporium!
