These Livingston Brushed Vest are always a winner. My actor needed two(2)in Black. Vests were in stock and fit perfect. Thanks to the adjustment strap on back of vest. Always a great feature and so very helpful.

Only one issue
All of the items I have received have met or been above expectation. The only issue is this particular vest is too short for my frame. But I do like the style and quality of it! Respectfully, Nathaniel Branch

Awesome vest!
I ordered a vest, and I was EXTREMELY happy with the product I received. It was shipped VERY quickly, and it was very high quality. I would absolutely order again from them!

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.

Just what I wanted
Got a gift of some cash & decided to buy this to add to my vest collection. The quality was just as good as all the other vests I've ordered. The only caveat is to be sure of your size. This was one that I got the XXL as the chest size called for it. It fit perfectly.

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.

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.

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.

I think the title says it all. It's a beautiful item that is very well put together and got to me the next day despite being told it would take much longer. I was a bit iffy about the cost, but that was until I actually had the item in hand. I do believe it worth it and will be back for a similar item in red some time soon.

A very nice vest for wear with my garb. Vest is well made and not overly heavy under a frock coat I will say the size is right on the mark. If you are heavy or have a stomach, you might consider another vest...not much stretch in the material :-(. I am 5'10" and about 210lbs, purchased large. Fit awesome and looks amazing. David

My favorite waistcoat.
I wore one of these waistcoats (vests) in a theater production as part of a costume and loved it so much that I had to get one of my own. It fits true to size and is sturdy in its construction. Any time I wear it I get compliments and it coordinates well with jeans, dress pants and my kilt.

Canvas Double Breasted Vest - Crimson
Not as red as it looks in person. It's more of a dark burgundy/brown colour. Which is more authentic to the era and the more practical nature of it. But otherwise looks and feels fantastic. Has bronze buttons which are easy to do up and undo. Best way to do it is the left vertical row first then the right.

Vest Fit
The quality of workmanship is excellent. I love the look. I'm 5'10 and about 175 pounds and the medium fit well except for one place, the arm pits. I really love this vest yet the arm hole size makes it almost unwearable. I don't have big arms and a large would have been way too big everywhere else. I can still wear it but it is quite tight. Other vests I've bought from you are not like this. You might want to mention this fact to whoever makes these for you. I understand that the world is not perfect and things like this happen. I still love it and might pay to have it altered in the future. Thank you, Dedicated Customer.

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!

Great character garment, I have always admired the character clothes of actors in the old westerns, from great actors to the B-class movies. I reccomend this company for the quality and impressive results in recreating them so well. Checking sizes will help you, however you will not find better than this company anywhere in my impression.

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.

There are times when my Harris Tweed sport coat is too heavy. This fits the occasion perfectly. Very classy.

What I needed
I had a Great Gatsby party to go to and I needed a vest to go with my suit. This was exactly what I needed AND, it is also what I wanted to add to my wardrobe. Love it and received many compliments

My Wedding Vest
The vest fit great and the quality is, damn, good. The back of the vest is a light color and different material which was the only thing was like, "ehhhh" about. But great vest!

Very nice
Well made and looks very sharp for the bad guy in our Western short film. There is satin fabric in the back. I wish it were all the same tweed material, but it is still very nice.

Solid everyday wear
I fell in love with the four-pocket canvas worker vests, but eventually realized that I needed something more elegant, but still casual enough for everyday wear. This is perfect for just hanging out, getting things done, stopping for a cuppa, or a casual supper.

NICE Comfortable vest
Bought this with the possibility of sending it back if it wasn't a quality item. When I received it I was impressed with the delivery packaging and the quality of the vest. The workmanship was very good, it was very comfortable and the sizing was great. I ordered a 'Tall' as I like a longer vest and it worked perfectly for me.

I was worried that this vest might be "costume quality." It definitely is not. This is a well made vest and has received lots of compliments. The grey one will be my next purchase.

Simply The Best
An old concept meets new style as The Emporium takes possibly its finest vest and gives it a new look. The double-breasted Cavendish vest is derived from the Walden. And just like the Walden, it has the same handsome appeal, top notch construction and unmatched character. The neutral golden brown color, double breasted front and the herringbone patterned texture immediately enhances any formal or semi-formal attire paired with it. In case you can't tell, I absolutely love this vest and I think you will too.

The fit is great, the look is just what I expected, and the quality appears to be good. I couldn't be happier with my purchase! Would be nice to have this same vest in green tweed as well.

Pretty but button problem
Very pretty vest, but I though the buttons were both inexpensive feeling and poorly sewed on. One popped off when I wore the vest for the first time.

Vest-Victorian
The material and fit of this vest was excellent for the Victorian look I was after, essentially emulating Darcy of you know where....:} The ladies loved it at the Victorian ball, and even two gents commented on how 'proper' it looked. What makes this vest special is the subtle blue paisley pattern, not overstated. I did order this vest one size larger to compensate for the bulkier shirt I was wearing. No issues.....good value...

This is a very handsome vest. It is well made and the material is beautiful. I bought this for my wedding and am so happy with it. I can highly recommend the style and fit of this vest - exactly as described online. The sizing chart was perfect.

River Trail Vest-Blue
My husband has an "executive build", rounder in the middle, and this vest fit him without alterations to the upper chest. Some we have purchased for him at other locations have need taking up at the shoulders in order to be large enough in the girth and fitted at the top.

Beautiful vest!
Love the color, pattern, and quality of the material; just wish the pockets were real pockets into which a watch could fit! Editor's Note: The pockets are sewn shut, but can be opened to use for a pocket watch.

River blue vest
I am very pleased with this vest! It's a great additional to anyone's wardrobe! Everyone is right to say the pics does not do this vest justice! It has a nice rich blue undertone that does not make this vest to flamboyant. My only complaint is that you the pockets are sewn shut, but that's most of their vests and all you need is the right tool or visit your local tailor to rectify! Overall, another awesome purchase from historical emporium!

Fine Vest
Just reiterating some of the points of others here. The vest's material and workmenship are great. The colors are muted and not flashy but the designs beautiful. The fit is a little different then other vests ive bought on this site, a little wider in the lower back, but nothing severe. I found i could adjust it down to fit me pretty well. (Im a large, i know the reviewer before me had different problems in a small) Finally be aware the pockets here are mostly for show. You can fit about a thumb in and thats it. I was expecting deeper pockets, but not a huge deal. Overall A good vest and one i plan on wearing alot!

A nice vest for formal occasions.
The River Trail Vest looks and feels quite nice. It has a durable build and the price is great. The downsides, it is sized a little larger then most other vests, especially in the waist, so even ordering a small, it was a little too large on me. I had to adjust it myself to get the fit I really wanted. The material, while quite elegant, also feels like it would be easier to mess up or damage then other waistcoats I've ordered. Definitely a great vest for fancy occasions but perhaps not so good for every day wear. Still, a good vest and I'm quite happy with the purchase. Maybe just a slight size adjustment or making the back-strap have a great range of adjustment.

Even better than the photo
I was totally pleased with the River Trail Vest. The photo doesn't do justice to the front fabric, which is a deep and elegant indigo with a subtle black pattern: most suitable for a dignified gent! The buttons give just the right touch of understated sparkle. With the Callahan Frock Coat and the Silk Puff Tie: perfect!

River Trail Vest is great!!!
The Blue River Trail Vest has quickly become my favorite. It looks absolutely great. The color is not too flamboyant. It is just right. Workmanship is first class. Sell this is several different colors and I just might buy them all.

I purchased a large in another style, and then exchanged it for this vest in a medium. It has good quality fabric all around.

missing real pocket for watch
I like this vest and it looks great with my outfit. However, I was very disappointed to find that the watch I bought with the outfit would not go into the vest pocket because the pockets are dummies. I would think for the money there should be a real pocket on this vest.
