Quality vest
I already had the pants but now I needed the vest. They were out of stock on the mediums so I had to get a large & take it in. I'll def check availability. Great quality!

A Dandy of a Vest!
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!

GET THE WHOLE SUIT
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.

This is really one good looking vest! I have quite a few of your vests and am delighted with all of them. I'm a very big vest fan; don't consider myself fully dressed without one. This is the first striped vest I've bought and it certainly won't be the last. Congrats for a terrific product!

The vest was very great quality!!! It was amazing I was very satisfied! I wore it my first day back to school and I think I made an impression I got many compliments and saw many signs of envy This isn't a costume it's a real suit It's a little boxy on me since I'm a girl but other than that it was absolutely fabulous

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.

Fantastic
This vest fits me like it was tailored to my frame just for me by a master tailor. The pockets are really cool an in the right spots for my pocket watch and pocket knife. Looks better in person then on the computer and when matched with the trousers, 100 % awesome. Formal when wearing my Frock coat and top hat or switch hats to a bowler for a more semi formal look. A really nice addition to my suit.

Love it!
An excellent vest. A lot of reviews of the vests here were saying they ran big, so I ordered a smaller one than I would have otherwise. Turned out to be a bit too small, but the replacement I ordered fit perfectly and arrived a whole lot faster than I anticipated. Looks great with my Steampunk outfit I put together.

Styling...
I find the most helpful reveiws discuss sizing and not aesthetics. For me, the fit depends on the cut of the garment, I am to thick to wear "skinny" tailored clothes and often, if I go one size larger, it can look like I am wearing my father's clothing. In a sport coat I look for a 43" regular and once again depending of the cut of the garment, along with my own seasonal weight loss or gain, the article of clothing "fits" or looks styling or looks like I am in desperate need of a tailor. Out of the bag, my ordered "Commander Vest" fit nicely and allowed enough room for me to feel comfortable without adjusting the back strap. I purchased this vest for part of a SteamPunk costume I've assembled to wear to DragonCon in the fall of this year. I'm still working on some other applications... Thanks,

The vest is as described, and has a nice weight to it, I've taken to wearing it with my pair of Wahmaker Frontier Canvas Pants in the brown color, with a white or red dress shirt, it adds a nice casual look to the somewhat dressed look that I wear on a regular basis.

Military fashion show!
Another fine vest you gotten me into! This high collar vest provides a distinguished and unique look that will have you looking like an officer and a gentleman. It looks great with an ascot or can even be worn with a regular tie and suit for the avantegard anachronistic look. I was impressed with the craftsmanship and durability that is usually reserved for overpriced designer wear. Since it is worn close to the neck, I would suggest getting a size larger than you would normally wear. It has a surprisingly fitted feel.

Great medium weight vest, good for the warmer months. Sizing is correct, rare in this world, I'm about a 45 chest and the large fits just right. The stripey fabric goes good with lots of shirts. A Yale man might even wear it over a t-shirt.

Top notch vest! Looks great as indian wars era cowboy action gettup. Quality product very well made. Looks so good I'm wearing it on sundays also. I wear XL in canvas vests to fit shoulders then they fit my belly loose, but the cut on this vest is perfect.

WOW
So much more than I expected! I thought my other Frontier Classics vests from Historical Emporium were tops, but this one stands out. Large vests are to snug on my belly, extra larges is what I wear with the adjustment belt in back snugged up some, but the Buchanan vest is just right in extra large. Smooth fit and looks great as an Indian wars era cowboy action getup. This vest will also see action on Saturday nights and Sunday mornings.

Great Addition
This vest is definitely a surprise, and a pleasant one at that. There is just enough wool in the fabric to give it the proper feel. The fact that it is self backed makes it perfect for use without any type of jacket or coat. On top of that it is decidedly comfortable to wear! I purchased this with one very specific use in mind, which required the stand up collar, and Navy Blue was exactly what was needed for the Tartan it was to be worn with. But now that I have it, I'm finding that it works quite well in many other ways. It will be seeing a great deal of use year round. This is definitely worth the extra bit of time that a special order requires.

This vest and many others we’ve purchased are for my handicapped brother. He is slightly obsessed with the period clothing and loves your Victorian products! With his handicaps, I greatly appreciate the vests that are machine washable- not just wool options. He has shrunk a few rather expensive ones :(.

High quality clothing
This is a great looking, well-made vest that is both "pretty and practical." It's a nice deep black (although being canvas, I would expect it to fade a bit with wear and time; we'll see). Plenty of pockets, sturdy fabric, easy care -- just a nice article of clothing that would look as good with a pair of jeans as it does with a victorian costume. We got an XL Tall for my 5'11" husband -- this style is quite short in the torso, typical of the era it represents, and if you have any sort of a belly, it seems like the regular length doesn't quite meet even a high-waisted trouser. The longer length solves this really nicely, so it's a good option for the wider among us as well as the taller! ;-)

For Real
My Granddad was a road engineer who was also a prospector. Although his vest was really a mess when we dug it out, this working vest is as close as anyone is going to get to the feel of daily wear of the last part of the 19th century and the first part of the 20th. Because I have a long torso and knew the shirt I was going to wear with this vest was a bartender blouse, I ordered a 3X tall, but normally I would use a 2XT. This gives me plenty of room to carry a small pistol (fake) inside the vest, as well as accommodating the frilly bartender's blouse. Really nice workmanship at a reasonable price.

Having ordered from other vendors, when I receive packages, I try to temper my expectations and generally prepare myself to be disappointed. But when I opened my HE packages, I was ecstatically surprised! All I can say is WOW!! You guys are phenomenal! The style, quality, fit, packaging, shipping, customer service... everything has been simply fantastic! I am very proud to be an official new customer! Actually, I have to say the style, quality, and fit of your clothes is superior to my daily modern clothes and I think I'm going to see where i can reasonably swap out your garments for my modern ones. So, I may have another order soon! HAHA! I cannot say enough good things! Although the vest was special order, the vest arrived within a day of the other items. I was expecting a much greater delay and was extremely surprised! Also, Customer Service was very responsive in answering my questions about availability, etc. The other huge factor that is very impressive is your fitting directions! They were dead- on and turned out perfectly! I was worried about having to go back and forth to find the right size... but you nailed it! Your care and effort are greatly appreciated!! THANK YOU!

A practical item
I usually take a "short" in a jacket or coat, but I ordered the "long" because I thought the regular looked a bit too short. I'm glad I did because I like longer vests. I also ordered the large although I normally take a medium shirt -- pay attention to the sizing chart. The large let out all the way is a good fit for me, but one size smaller would have been way too small. Perhaps it is my monitor, but the vest is not the bright yellow shown, but a dull brownish yellow or "wheat" color that you'd expect canvass to be. The canvass is somewhat stiff and was hard to button, but once buttoned, it stays buttoned. I washed some of the stiffness out and expect it to get softer with repeated wearing and washings. It did not shrink in the washing, but I was careful to use cold water. I like the vest very much and wear it daily for warmth and to protect my shirt from getting dirty around horses and snagged on things, but it is indeed an outdoor work vest and not a dress item (I have wool vests for that). I especially like the four pockets and their placements. I have pretty much stopped wearing my watch on my wrist and keep it in one of the pockets instead and my keys are easier to get to if in a vest pocket rather than in my pants pocket. Being cotton canvas, there is no doubt it will stain and so I'm careful not to wear it around grease and oil and other products which will permanently stain cotton.

just what I wanted
This vest fit perfectly. I have a 38 chest and ordered a medium. I don't like it when I have to tighten the waist too much. With this vest I barely adjusted the belt. Even though it is made of canvas, I can wear it dressing up or with jeans and cowboy boots.

color not as depicted
The quality of the vest is first rate. I sent it back because it was not the color shown. It does not have a yellow hue. It is indeed "wheat," a member of the "tan" or "beige" family.

Classic Canvas Work Vest
Built on a rather "heroic scale," it is often difficult to find the garb off the rack. Historical Emporium has it. It fits! Appropriate for impressions of either work or more formal events, this vest fits the bill.

Very happy
I couldn't believe the quality of this vest for the price. It's going to be a very nice addition to my steampunk costume

Canvas Work Vest Wheat
This is a cool vest. I wear suspenders with all my trousers and I thought this would be a nice casual vest with my "emporium" trousers, and other casual pants in my closet...chinos, blue jeans, etc. A vest made with washable cotton fabric is almost impossible to find anywhere but this "emporium". I really like the square cut along the waist and the cotton lining (instead of satin) which is also very hard to find elsewhere. I'm usually a perfect medium, but this vest is a little roomy. If I pull the back adjuster all the way, it fits.....the small would probably be a little too snug for me. I like this vest....ordered one in black too!

Mustard-Colored Compliment!
The best-dressed young lady in my local Art Scene spotted my new vest immediately and complimented my Fall Colors! This waistcoat is washable, durable, no-nonsense~ yet perfect Steampunk-design... it seems droopy around the ribs when you take it out of the box, but when you put your pocketwatch,tapemeasure and businesscards in the pockets it comes together perfectly!

A versatile rugged vest
This is my second such vest and while I still use the first one around the house and outside, the new one is even better with slightly deeper pockets. The old one is faded but comfortable and a little wrinkled but still functional.
