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.

Absolutely Does the Job!
An incredible Regency Period style vest. Excellent quality with excellent fit. One of the most expensive I think that Historical Emporium offers, but worth the money. You get what you pay for. I work as a professional historical tour guide in the Baltimore/Washington, DC area and have already received many compliments on it during the course of my rounds. Certainly not my last purchase from Historical Emporium!

Great Product
We got this for our son for his birthday. It was soooo worth it when he opened it and the look on his face. He kept it on and studied the quality of the vest and continued to point out to us how great it was made. Even in these times of "cutting back" on quality to increase profit, this company did not follow the trend and instead put out a quality product! We thank you for that and the look on his face!

I almost cried!
After buying the trousers (Pants) and frilly shirt some time ago I was looking for something loud and thought the Cavalier Waistcoat (Vest) might just do the job. I am not in an historical club or do I have a thing about historical clothing but I feel this is the sort of clothing one should be seen in on any special occasion. Anyone can wear fashion and most people do and that is why they look so very mediocre! before the shirt and trousers came I was somewhat apprehensive about the fit although trousers tend to fit when the waist mesurement is right and shirts are generally good if the cut isn't a tight one. With the Waistcoat, due to bad experience I was really worried. Will it be too short?, too tight?, too loose? or does it, because of my not too streamline figur, look too stupid?! Well, I took it out of the parcel, took off my sweat shirt and whilst only in a T shirt I put it on. I knew, from this moment on, this wanderful piece of clothing was going to be my number one of all time! It fitted so well I almost cried and to help me not do so I had a single malt Whisky!!! Or was it three? By the way Fashion comes and goes Quality doesn't!. You do not need to go back in time to wear quality clothing! Thank you Historical Imporium!!! Graham M. Ellis P.S. I'll be back!

The cavalier vest was absolutely beautiful! I couldn't even wait till Christmas to give it to my husband; he got it a week early. The size ran true; it fit him perfectly. He really liked it too; the only downside is it didn't have a watch pocket. But that was the style of the period piece; not a design flaw. I was very satisfied with this product.

The devil is in the details
I like the pattern and design of these double breasted vests so much that I purchased several in different colors. You don't see anything much like them on the market today. My only disappointments are that I like to sport a pocket watch when I get dressed up and these vests don't have pockets of any sort. Also, the added touch of a buckle on the back strap would have been nice. Two details that seem to have fallen by the wayside in the name of cost savings. I give this vest 4 out of five stars.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

My daughter was planning a Steam Punk theme for her wedding. She suggested your site and we chose this item as the basis for my outfit. The fit was very good and the quality of the product was exceptional.

Great and durable vest
I have two Scully vests almost identical but in two different colors. I wear them almost every night during the summer months between Memorial Day and Labor Day. They hold up quite well and are very nice looking...Even after all of the wear they get!

beautiful color
We will be attending a Jane Austen Society Regency Ball/Birthday Party soon, and I got my husband this handsome vest to wear with his other items of costuming. It is well made, a beautiful color, the L fits him well. I have a short dark green cape to wear with a white empire dress, and I think we shall make quite the attractive, older couple.

As always, Excellent!
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.

Middlethorpe Vest - Emerald
I love this vest! I purchased it to use with my formal outfit, and it truly is an exquisite work of art. The paisley adds a hint of sophistication, but there is a subtlety about it that keeps it from coming off as garish or gaudy. The wide lapels are an excellent look for a rather wiry lad like myself, as they seem to make my shoulders appear broader, at least to my eyes. I have a pocket watch, so I was hoping the pockets would be functional so I could wear it with this vest. I was far from disappointed! The product page indicated that the pockets were real, but would likely be sewn shut, which indeed was the case. I easily removed the stitching from the top of each pocket using a seam ripper, and my watch slipped into the pocket without an issue. The chain fastens to the buttons without much difficulty as well, and the chain hanging across the front of the vest adds an extra bit of authenticity and elegance. I paired this vest with the Opulent Paisley Ascot - Black, which has a similar if not identical pattern. The vest and ascot complement each other very nicely, and I am exceedingly pleased with the outcome of my order. I will be sure to purchase from the Emporium again! You can't go wrong with this kind of class!

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.

Another great Historical Emporium offering! Only knocked a star off because it runs small; I measured, followed the sizing chart, but still needed to do an exchange.

Instead of a blazer
Bought this to use instead of a blazer. I have large arms and a suit coat that fits my arms will be huge in the middle unless I have significant tailoring done. This was a great option! The size chart was on point, the vest fit perfectly and looks great! The materials are all high quality and it feels so much more substantial than I thought it would. The vest came in a long which is nice as I have a long torso. Definitely 5 Stars!

This is a gray herringbone pattern vest. I truly like the quality and fit. I wish all your vests were available in tall sizes. The quality is there, the look is there and the color is perfect.

Buford gray tweed vest
My favourite vest so far. I knew when I was purchasing this vest that it had the herringbone pattern, which gives it a very nice look. I ordered a 2x tall which works wonderfully for me. The only down side has been that the lining is leaving black lint on my white shirts which the dry cleaners has to fight to remove. Otherwise awesome vest.
