This vest fit like a glove! Depite some reviews claiming that the green color is much darker than pictured, I found it to be only slightly so. It looks great, and the quality is superb for this price range.

Superb Emerald Isle Vest
This vest was slightly darker than on-screen, but that wasn't a bad thing. The color is definitely an emerald tone and it is absolutely gorgeous! It is finely crafted and just what was needed! Beautiful! Very gentlemanly indeed!

Beautiful, well built and fast!
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

I find myself swooning over this vest. I was a little worried, because it wasn't designed for females, per say, but everything else about it was perfect so I took a leap. I'm glad I did! The color was accurate, it felt great once put on and I can't think of anything I would change. Also, real pockets, good lord it's nice to see real pockets.

Love it!
Love it! Quality of the fabric and styling are excellent! Great crossover piece with a classy touch for my favorite looks -- can go from formal to casual depending what it's combined with. Something I can wear to work, church, and downtown. The rounded bottom hem works nicely for displaying a fancy belt buckle. The Large size is slightly big for my 44" chest, but the adjustable buckle in the back makes it work, sizing is comfortable without buttons straining. Love the four front pockets, plenty of options for storage. The color is better described as brown/black, not brown/navy. The darker stripe is a soft black, not a blue tone. Love the brown/black stripe as it is, coordinates with more of my shirts/pants/jackets than the brown/navy would. The vertical stripes give a subtle slimming look.

Bought this and the matching Ferndale Striped spats to complete my patent medicine salesman 'living history' persona and am 1000% pleased with the fit and appearance. Both items look great in the website photos but are even more impressive in person. Really liked the higher neckline on this vest and the 4 pockets in front are perfect for everything from my pocket watch to a small bottle of 'cure all'. Thanks Historical Emporium for offering such great merchandise!

I ordered the whole suit; Frock coat, pants, vest and spats. Great quality. I'm 6'2" 215lbs and the XLs are a little on the large size, but I'll be getting them tailored. Not sure if the large would have done it, so not a big issue. LOOKS GREAT. Good weight to the fabric.

Seems great. Haven't tried to wash/clean it yet but the quality is nice. Trust the tape measure. I couldn't bring myself to order a size large as 100% of my wardrobe is XL. Ended up having to exchange it. I think I could have even fit a medium. Trust the tape measure procedure they give you. Also, go a size up on the pants as suggested. The Ferndale combo looks pretty sweet.

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 fit, color, style. The only thing I did not love about it is that this material has a little sheen to it that is did not anticipate. This is the second vest from HM for me. The other one (canvas double breasted, black) is a solid 5 star vest.

Maverick Vest Gray
I received the vest very quick, It looks very nice.. I give both the delivery time and looks of the vest an A +... However the vest is very thin material and from what I see you handle with care. I have several vest that are well crafted western style and the material is much heavier (thicker) material. This particular vest I guess would be fine for a hot summer day.

Refuse To Conform
The Maverick vest - Gray, is yet another tremendous and inexpensive addition to any Gentleman's wardrobe. Another word for maverick means to be unique or non-conforming. And that is precisely what this dark, charcoal-grey tone vest brings to your wardrobe. A gorgeous sleek and polished piece that awakens the inner Maverick of any outfit that you might adorn. This vest is tailor-made for formal or informal wear and it can easily be matched with almost any color scheme. And its durable but yet lightweight construction makes it the perfect vest to wear year-round. There is just no way that you can go wrong with this vest. Thank you Emporium!

I love this vest! I provides a nice sense of dignity and elegance to my wardrobe and I'm pretty sure my IQ goes up when I wear it. It's comfortable, seems very well made. For example, even the back is substantial, unlike the chintzy material that so many use! Now I just need to find a quality pocket watch!

Excellent quality
This is just what I was looking for. The vest seems sturdy, built to last. The blend feels nice-- a touch of wool (25%) but not so much that would make it too warm to wear indoors. I wear this as everyday work wardrobe, not as a costume, so I need something that will last. It's also available in tall sizes, which I need, and which are really hard to find in a lapel vest. I buy vests regularly, but am disappointed with most of them. And most cost more than this one. This vest I am extremely happy with. I may even buy another one--something I never do with clothes. It's that good.

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.

Just what I was looking for
This was my first purchase from the Historical Emporium along with a satin silver puff tie and I have to say this exeded all expectations, the vest is very well made and is extremely light over all I love it. I will say this when I got it there where a few strings around the buttons but I was assured by a friend of mine who does a lot of tailor work that it was just the tie off point were they closed the stitching for the button holes. Well there is my " complaint " for this review and all it took to fix it was about two minutes with a small scissors and you couldn't even tell so all in all I give this 5 stars.

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.
Feb 20, 2020

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...

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!

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.

Talls are hard enough to find, but I also prefer lapels, and so many vests these days are cheap, no lapel satin boring things meant for tuxes. This vest is appropriate whether you're trying to sport a vintage look or just trying to accent your current wardrobe.

Drake vest worthy a Dragon's Hoard!
To be honest I wanted the order the Dragon Vest in red and black but it had sold out by the time I placed my order. I chose this as my back up and what a pleasant surprise! There is a lot of luster to this black on black vest. The subtle but beautiful pattern allows this item to easily match different blacks. Wear this to add panache to an otherwise dreary black suit.

Good looking vest. Fit great. Not made in USA and that saddens me.

Birthday Gift
I bought this vest as a birthday present for my husband. He absolutely loves it! The quality is superb and the cut is just right for dressing in (Gothic-)Victorian fashion, which he loves. Delivery from Gentleman's Emporium was swift and painless. Definitely worth the price!

Tall Sizes?
The only problem I had with this vest is that it was a little too short in the back because of my size. I am 6'6" so it rose a little in the back. Also, the cut is a little generous, so speak with the customer service reps about how you'd like it to fit. They are actually very knowledgeable and helpful and really try to help you put together the right look and feel for you. So I give 4 stars to the vest and 5 to customer service! How about it HE, tall sizes?

14 Year old really likes Drake Vest
My 14-year son old wore the Drake Vest to a school dance so he could look a little more polished than a shirt-and-tie. He really liked how he looked, and of course, as his mother, I cried.

Drake Vest
Got this vest to wear at my "Alice In Wonderland/Mad Tea Party" Wedding - absolutely love it! The material is beautiful, the subtle stripes on the back piece were an unexpected treat. I was thrilled that there were so many sizes available. The fabric is thinnish - this is probably not the vest for every day wear - but it made alternations easy (the vest is very generously sized.)
