Outstanding
I ordered this and several other items for my daughter's upcoming wedding. The entire package arrived several days earlier than expected, and I was skeptical of the purchase, but once receiving all the items I realized the material quality was high the fit was perfect and the price was great. I could not have bought a suit for the same price. I am amazed at the outstanding customer service from historical Emporium. I even had to change my pants size day after I ordered and it was corrected and I received the proper fit.

Emerald Isle Vest
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.

Very Attractive Vest
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.

I absolutely love this vest/waistcoat and so does my girlfriend! It is great for a formal look but equally attractive with jeans for a more casual artsy look. The fit is perfect and the quality is top notch. I give it four thumbs up (two of the thumbs belong to my girlfriend)! Thanks Historical Emporium!

Excellent!
My second vest of this style (outgrew the first, it's still in good shape). Quality of everything I have bought from Historical Emporium is excellent. After ordering I learned I would need it earlier than expected and standard shipping might not work. I called customer service to see if I could upgrade to expedited shipping. Customer Service looked up my order and assured me it would arrive on time with standard shipping, in fact it arrived a day earlier than expected. They could have charged me the extra shipping fee and I would have never known the difference. It is so nice to do business with an honest company that offers great products.

Love this vest. It's been hard for me to find a vest that will fit. I'm 5'9" and wear a 2xlt shirt due to having a bit longer torso. I just wish it was available in more colors..I wear it to church and any occasion that calls for a more formal attire...

Lightweight vest for semi-formal occasions
The lighter weight but woolen mix makes for a good semi-formal wear. Added a modern point collar shirt with a tie and collar clip for a routine bread and butter outfit. Cut and collar were perfect.

Little pricey, but nice.
I tend to grit my teeth if I have to spend more than $50 for a vest, but I've got to admit it's very well made. Quality material and stitching. So much so, that after I received the double breasted herringbone vest, I was so impressed with it that I bought the single breasted herringbone vest as well.

Gray Herringbone vest
Its pretty dark for being "gray". I do like the metallic buttons and the quality overall is very nice, but should be considering its 3x the $ of every other vest I looked at. Biggest complaint and very disappointed that the backing was a black linen material, fairly thick and heavy which made it very hot. All the pictures showed a light gray backing which was highly desired to match with the rest of the wedding attire. Unfortunate.

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.

Herringbone grey tweed vest
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. Thanks again.

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.

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!

I'm a big guy... 6'3" with a couple of extra pounds, so every time I order a vest it's a gamble of whether it will be wide and short, or baggy and too long, etc etc. This vest was not only a perfect fit (shoulders, chest, waist and length), but the quality was apparent and I'm VERY happy with it. Highly recommended and well worth the $$.

Gold Star Chic
I most recently had the opportunity to attend a “Black Tie Chic” event. I did not want to purchase an entire tuxedo- what do to? I turned to the myriad of shirts and vests at Historical Emporium to put together a “look”. To include the Tuxedo-look of the Sinclair Edwardian Club Collar Shirt and Gold Klondike Vest. Well let me tell you I looked sensational- some folks came up to me and said I looked dapper. I was worried about size but the vest xxl fit fine- I did have a bit of a problem with the vest - one of the metal buttons was not sealed closed properly in the back - it had a very sharp metal opening- which actually when I put on the vest - sliced through the thread of the back of the button- within seconds- button was on floor. I have thought of sending back vest- but will try to send to a tailor to try to repair. Otherwise- vest was as advertised- great fit. Bottom line - I will definitely be a repeat customer. Thank you.

Fantastic product!
I am very happy with my purchase. The vest was top-quality, looked great and I wore it as part of a Halloween western get-up. But I think I will be wearing it all the time now!

Just right
I ordered size XL since I wear 46R coat. The vest fits very nicely and looks real good. Quality is outstanding and the service, including packaging, was excellent. I'm very happy with the purchase.

Very comfortable vest
This is my wedding outfit, period accurate because I am getting married in an 1870 Stage and Pony Express stop. Very excited.

Heavy cotton, feels like armor
Surprised at the heavy weight cotton, less akin to costume wear, more like every day work vest. Buttons are large and tight but will probably loosen up over time.

This vest was a birthday gift as I recently returned in-person to my office job. I’ve always loved dressing up for work, but this (incredibly comfortable and durable) vest has elevated my style game to an entirely new level!!! Everything it’s advertised to be and more!

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...

Formal but not stuffy!
A well made garment (a perfect fit) and ideal for formal and semi-formal occasions without being stuffy. Very happy with this purchase.

Very Nice
Normally, the sizing on HE's clothing runs large, but I had a hunch to go up one size, and I'm glad I did. Even one size up, it was still a little snug, but it's a wonderful vest with the same high quality I've come to expect from HE. Very nice!

Fit for a prince!
The fit and craftsmanship are lovely. I'll be using it as part of a costume for Shakespeare in the park in July. No, not that park.

Vest not useable
Well made, esp for the price. But the size is way off. Bought and normally wear 3X. Product was at best a large. Unuseable for me.

Have been searching for this vest for years!
Have been looking for a well-tailored, high-buttoned vest for a long time. The Buckingham is very well constructed, fully lined mandarin collar vest. Its pockets are deep, and the fabric covered buttons are well made. It feels substantial, like a lightweight suit jacket without arms. When fully buttoned it is not constrictive, and looks fantastic.

Vest.
The vest was perfect for my event and I see wearing it to other social events as well. I had to get it tailored as it was too large but that was only because there was no time to return it for a medium. Still, I am very pleased with my purchase.

Good quality item, poor size
This is a good quality, well constructed vest. I am disappointed, however, that even though I ordered a Small, I'm still swimming in it (I wear a size 37 jacket). That's just the fault of the supplier that they don't offer an Extra Small. I'll just have to take it to a tailor or add a belt in the back. This is actually just the same vest offered by a few clergy suppliers--it is a clergy vest--but offered at a lower price.

excelent product
I bought this vest for a Steampunk Ball and, with the addition of a few cog on the chest and collar, it was perfect! It has since become a regular part of my Good Suit. It's worth noting that each item of clothing I've purchased from Historical Emporium has been slightly larger than I expected. This is probably due to sizing differences from the States to Australia, but It is something customers should be aware of. I can highly recommend this vest.
