I was very pleased & excited when I received the lamb leather vest. The quality is excellent & the color was accurate as shown on the website. The buttons are tight on the vest. If I need other items from historical emporium I will not hesitate.

Buttons poorly sewn.
Great looking vest, good fit, only problem was: worn once and a button came off, put that button back on, second wearing another button needed sewing back on. Looks like I will need to have all the buttons done before I can wear it again.

Very Dressy Vest
I was very impressed with this vest. Very dressy, suitable for wearing with a suit or sport jacket. The color was absolutely perfectly matched all throughout the construction. It is thin and very light weight so it is not for cold weather protection or to wear on a horse. Love it and looks great. Be sure to get the long because it adds an inch to the length and I am 5 feet 11 inches. Price is about right for the quality of the vest.

I ordered the vest to wear at my daughter's wedding that had a western theme. The vest fit perfectly and the Italian Lamb Leather is of top quality. A number of guests commented on the appearance and feel of the vest. I am extremely pleased with my purchase.

Very pleased with the product and service
Purchased the Trailrider Vest as a Christmas gift 3 weeks before Christmas. Had searched many sites that did not have the vest in stock and could not guarantee that it could be back ordered in time for Christmas. Not only did Historical Emporium have the vest in stock, but I received the vest 6 days later, well in time for Christmas. The vest was of excellent quality! It was better than I imagined. The leather was very soft and very well made.

The vest I always wanted
I'd always wanted this vest. But, it was out of stock when I looked in to order. Finally it became available and their customer service sent me a note telling me. I called to order and the gent who answered the phone was very helpful. The vest arrived, clean and on a hangar (!) in matter of 7 days sent from San Jose to New York City. I am very pleased. The leather is soft, pliable and the interior pocket is well done, not cheap and sewn beautifully. I wore it immediately to an appointment with a man who also admires vests and he remarked how sharp it was. I thank you all. Quality stuff sent with alacrity. Bravo!

Western Single Point Vest - Soft Touch Lamb...
Having already bought the black equivilent of this vest which I was very happy with, I was a little disappointed with the the black cherry one as the color was rather blotchy. However, rather than send it back all the way from Aust, I decided to keep it, as it passes off as a well-worn antique vest.

Single point Vest - soft touch leather
Truly like the vest and purchase. I wear as a compliment to any shirt and sport jacket. Even in summer months, I can wear when there is a breeze and cooler. Have received many compliments. Even though the back is also leather and warm against a chair, driving, etc., I still enjoy. Did not want a fabric back as a personal decision. Thanks for listening. Pete

Great western vest
This is a great western vest with soft leather and distinctive silver snaps. As for the fit, I think it runs a little large. This is good to know, if you are a true Large, order the large not the XL. JP

Not one of the best products I have purchased
This product was one of the worst items I have bought. The Vest has lost most of the buttons and when put back on they still continue to fall off because of the buttoms themselves. They have such sharp edges that they cut the material used and fall off again. The vest is now full of needle marks after having to redo the buttoms so mamy times.

SIZE MATTERS
This particular vest, the Duke, is real soft leather with a grain, not suede as it might appear in the online pix.......high quality, soft, great back of cooler cotton, 4 outside pockets a standout, nice lapels, nice light brown or tan shade...... BUT BE CAREFUL OF SIZING.......this cut is for a person with a belly, NOT a military or "in shape" cut.....if you DO have a belly, this is your kinda vest! ALSO, THE RINKY-DINK clasp in the back to adjust the fit can only make a very minor difference, and really looks trashy......an easier to operate brass or even faux brass clasp could add SO much......even if the original clasp is somehow historically "correct", it adds nothing to the enjoyment of the vest! It is evil, and must be destroyed!!!....which a tailor could do very easily, but shouldn't HAVE to.

A great vest that is well worth its cost.
This vest is made of extremely find leather and is wonderfully attractive. It fits and feels great and has a terrific old west look. I have been looking for a quality vest for some time and was told by a shop owner that I'd never find just what I had in mind. She was dead wrong. This vest is exactly what I was looking for and I expect to wear it for years to come.

The Duke Vest
I was not expecting my Duke vest to be of the quality that it is, but I was very happy when it came in and I can tell I will continue to wear it with pride as it will gain character over the years as I go horseback riding and to the western shooting (SASS) events.

Not what was expected
It was a great looking vest and very well made. When I received the vest I was a little disappointed because it was black and not brown. The picture looks like a dark brown. It was however my own fault as I did not read the description where it plainly said BLACK. The only thing that was upsetting when I opened the box it looked almost as if it had already been worn. It had a few spots of something white on it that almost looked like toothpaste. At first I thought maybe is was chalk or something from when they made it, but it did not rub off easily like chalk would have. I did not attempt to get it off because I was sending it back to exchange it for the brown one I originally wanted. Returns are extremely easy with this company! I am quite sure I would order from them again if the occasion arises.

Terrific Vest
Having a video-shoot of our Cowboy Action Shooters for a regional Television Show coming up, I thought I'd like to look even more authentic. I searched, seemingly everywhere for a Western style vest, both locally and online...to no avail. I finally found this "Historical Emporium" website. They showed this vest and it looked perfect...at least in the picture. When it arrived (right on time), it actually did turn out to be perfect! The fit was exactly right and the quality and color couldn't have been better. It worked right in with the rest of my attire to a tee! The video-shoot went great and all of our cowboys looked the part. I could not have been more pleased with this vest!

Good, not perfect
I expected the leather to look richer than it does and the cotton back panel to be lighter in color. Both appear that way in the picture on your website but not on the actual garment. My goal was to buy a vest that replicated the one John Wayne wore in the movie Chisum. On your website, this one looked exactly like it; in reality, it comes close but it's not a true match. Still, the item will suit my purpose all right but I was just a little disappointed with the overall look of it when it arrived.

The Real Deal
Pictures don't do this vest justice. I'm extremely pleased with it. Whether I'm wearing it to a western themed event like I did last night or just sitting in my living room chair reading the vest is an authentic and comfortable addition to my jeans and boots. The vest is well made and the leather is an excellent grade. I highly recommend this vest to anyone who enjoys true western fashion.
