Love my vest!
When I initially bought it, I was planning to get it tailored, so I won't be complaining about the fit. The vest has the matte black material all around, so it can be worn as a stand-alone vest. The two front pockets are real, not fakes. I have had it for a year now and still love it. Overall, this is a very sturdy vest and would definitely recommend it.

Almost Perfect
I am 5'11, 308 and got this vest in size 3XL. It fits perfect around the chest. Construction is very comfortable and loose fitting. Material is very lightweight. The midnight ebony color combined with lighter contrasting colors will make you look like a million dollars. The only complaint would be that I wish that this vest was made in size 3XLT. The extra 2 inches will make all the difference in the world for guys my height and taller. Great vest and company.

None more black...
Spinal Tap references aside - this waistcoat is seriously black. Not so much just 'black' as BLACK. It's so black it even provides contrast against other black clothes. It's so black that light bends around it. This is a good thing. Like all of the other Bonaventure waistcoats, the texture of the velvet is is lush, the cut is sharp, the colour is rich and deep, and the internal contrast provided by the bright antiqued buttons and the trim (through texture and sheen) is a strong design feature in and of itself. A highly recommended purchase, and one I wear regularly to work, and casually. It also works as a formal waistcoat, naturally, and is durable as well as attractive. It also has the dual benefit of going with absolutely everything in my wardrobe and immediately raising the tone of anything I wear it with. It is pure class in waistcoat form. You will not be disappointed with this item, believe me.

Great "Straight Edge" Vest!
This vest pairs nicely with the Fairbanks Striped Trousers I purchased on the same order. As a 6' 2" 240lb man with both a "pot belly" and a colostomy bag (cancer survivor) to hide, the straight edged bottom of this vest is EXACTLY what I needed. The more typical notched bottoms on most vests often exposes excess shirt material blousing out. Exactly what the vest is intended to conceal. The cut of the vest is also a bit sliming without acting like a male girdle like so many "fitted" vests. I am very pleased with the quality. One of the few items I've purchased online that doesn't seem like it needs the buttons to be re-attached with "good" thread.

Great vest with great details
The vest arrived in perfect condition in a very timely manner. I'm very impressed with the quality detailing of this vest. The contrasting piping/edging is very well sewn and applied, and the construction of the garment is excellent. The pockets were not basted shut, and they did not pucker a bit. The look is rich and goes great with a nice jacket and shirt. Ultimately, the vest fit me like a glove, so I'm a happy man.

Santa & Ragtime
I have a substantial grey beard. This vest is suitable for my visits as Saint Nicholas' younger brother--his, ahem, younger, handsomer brother. A Santa Claus suit is a costume, a vest is clothing--and a step up in refinement from lighter weight vests I have worn. As an occasional performer of ragtime and kindred older piano, such a vest is expected. Of course for the role as a piano-playing Santa Claus, this burgundy vest is best.

fine craftsmanship
I am really enjoying this vest; it's comfortable and looks great. I have seen the real thing as I have worked at museums for a while and it definitely allows me to see what some of the vests would have looked and felt like when they were new 140 years ago. And yes I have received compliments on it!

Rich in colour and texture
The pictures really don't do the waistcoat justice. The cut is superb, the texture is quite lush and the colour is rich and vibrant, and offset perfectly by the black trim. I wear this to work on a regular basis and it always gets compliments - works well with a black coat and trousers (I wear it with the Livingston brushed cotton trousers and the Victorian cutaway frock coat) and a white shirt for excellent contrast. One of my favourite items in my wardrobe - you'll probably find it becomes one of the favourites in yours, too.

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.

I love the feel of the silk fabric and it fits so swell. The buttons are all covered with rich distinction of supine appointment. I wore the vest to a Christmas party and really felt as if I ascended into another relm. Compliments galore. It really has a rich wine burgandy color that shines taste. I will be looking for more items like the jacket in the future.

I bought this for my husband to wear at our town's Heritage Day celebration, but he loved it so much that he's worn it to work several times already! He's tall, so the extra length in the tall sizes is a welcome plus. The paisley pattern is absolutely gorgeous. This is the 5th or 6th vest we've bought from Historical Emporium, and we'll continue to buy new ones.

Not Bad
Vest arrived in great condition. Looks good. Feels good. As advertised. Beautiful fabric. Two minor issues: 1. The vest appears to me to be a bit short - I'm 5'9" tall, 230lbs, and it doesn't cover my beltline - my shirt is showing above my belt all the way around me. I've never needed to buy "tall" clothes before, but apparently I would need to do so for this item. 2. The only comment is that tailoring was absolutely necessary. Although I purchased the correct size for my check/waist size, the vest was rather baggy around the lapels/check area. After $60 worth of tailoring, it now does not have the unsightly wrinkles in this area and fits well. In all fairness, I've been given to understand that tailoring is required for most/all vests.

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.

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.

I am impressed with the quality of this vest. I was hoping that I’d get something that I would be able to touch up and use in a few weeks. But this baby arrived in perfect condition! No loose threads, no button holes that are too tight, no problems at all! The fabric makes it so versatile. I wear the vest without a jacket, and I wear it with a suit jacket.

Great vest
Looks very nice and fits well. I dress in a casual style at work with these style of vest: open, with white shirt, no tie, and black slacks. The only reason for not giving 5-stars would be because the back fastening strap/belt tends to come loose from its buckle and hang down. Easy to fix with a quick tack with threads. They are largely ornamental.

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!

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 $$.

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.

Almost perfect
This is a beautiful vest with nice lines. I have not worn it as often as I planned because both welt pockets are stitched in the middle, and though the description suggests they would hold a watch, the remaining gap is too small. Since a fob watch is a common accessory for such a vest, this was disappointing. The vest is otherwise very good. Editor's note: Pockets are sewn shut for transit and can be fully opened with a seam ripper upon receipt.

Drake vest red
I purchased the vest for my husband for Christmas. He loves the covered buttons. He plays the guitar, and was impressed by the covered buttons because they will not scratch his guitar. He loves the color and cut of the vest. And it looks great on him!!

Drake Vest
I ordered the vest and received it on time and was very pleased with the order. Actually I ordered it from this website and it was just like the picture. The only thing that I have against it that I ordered a large where it fits tight. I think I could have purchased a XL instead. I would like to say to anyone that please know your correct size and if possible order a size up. But after all it accented my suit very well. I thank you Historical Emporium for helping me out.

sizing was big
I sized this according to my chest measurement and found it to be too big. I didn't have time to exchange it so I had a tailor take it in and now it fits better. Be careful with the sizing, and perhaps these run a little big. Take some accurate measurements, talk to the customer service folks, see what they think before you place your order. This looks very handsome, feels a little bit like a costume piece with some of the finishing. Given the price, I wouldn't expect anything to feel like a short cut on this, but I'm only taking one star. Without a coat, this is a really ostentatious waistcoat. Be warned. It's an attention getter. With a coat over top, I get the splashes of gaudiness that I was looking for, lurking beneath a bit of classy modesty. The weight of this is really light, probably the kind of waistcoat you're looking for in warmer climates.

This style runs larger than the canvas so despite the gracious return policy I gifted it to a much appreciative friend!

pockets too shallow
This is a good vest; well made from decent materials. Should get 5 stars, but for the pockets. They are way too shallow. Main reason I bought the vest was to accessorize with an antique pocket watch. The standard railroad pocket watch barely fits in the pocket. Another 1/2 to 1 inch depth would make this 5 star.

So who's Drake?
I don't know and I don't care. The vest is just as advertised. It fits well, it's classy, it's smart - what's not to like? My only "complaint" is that the pockets are *too* well sewn up. I was unable to safely undo them before I wore the vest. Ah, well, I tucked my pocket watch into the waistband of my pants as all was well. Still, the stitching is really finished work, not easy to undo. And frankly, I would bet that most of us ordering these items are wearing pocket watches. And that's the worst I have to say. Don't feel uneasy about buying this vest, it's quite worth it!
