Exactly what I was looking for.
This vest is spot on. Had to workout an exchange because I needed a tall - MEASURE THE LENGTH! You'll save yourself the trouble. Once I got this vest though I was sold. The quality is great. Nice solid canvas with a beautiful texture. It's already starting to soften and bend more easily with some wear. The buttons and back strap are all super solid. It's just super well constructed, great fabric quality, excellent fit. I'll be back for more. This is exactly what I was looking for. Great quality at a great price. Thanks!!

Brown work vest
Great looking vestments, I am sure glad I found these!. I reccomend this to anyone who loves wearing blue jeans casual, I knew how good this thing is going to look, just as soon as I saw, and touched it, I haven't seen much of any other clothing offered anywhere else this good. Check the sizing, but it's fully recommended. Thnx.

Great Quality and Price
This is my second purchase from HE, and I'm as pleased this time as the first. The vest is a "sturdy" weight canvas (love it), and very well made. I bought a XXL and the size is perfect for my big torso. My only regret is that I didn't order this as a "Long". It comes right to my waist (what it is intended to do), but being a "big guy" I prefer something that extends below my belt-line a bit. The added 2" in the long version would make this perfect for me. However, I'm NOT going to return it, because it will inspire me to lose a few pounds. Shipping was next day (WOW!!!!), and the price is UNBEATABLE! I will be buying more from this company.

Canvas work vest
First, I buy these vests for work - as the title suggests. I wear vests often for the warmth without the sleeve constriction of a full Carhartt jacket. We live on a horse farm and could well have a good number of outdoor chores and repairs any given week that would require freedom of movement. This is a good made vest. I was disappointed when I opened the package and noticed immediately that it was not a Wah-Maker brand. This vest was replacing a ten year old Wah-Maker that has finally given up it's seams and button holes. Thankfully, it seems cut from the same pattern with stout canvas as the Wah-Maker - so it fits like my old vest. A very good thing. The buttons though are not metal like the Wah-Maker - time will tell if these plastic buttons will hold up. Good pocket depth.

8 years later
I purchased this vest in October of 2013 and 8 years later it still holds up to the test. I had to have it taken in and the tailor was surprised to work with canvas but it fits even better now than it did the day I bought it. I immediately followed up with the same vest in crimson and will be repurchasing this color again for a richer black. The black color, though faded, is still good 8 years later. All pockets are functional. Purchase with extreme confidence. I have about a 53" gut at 6'3" and the 2XT is an absolute perfect fit.

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...

Very good quaity
This is a well made and historically accurate vest. I like the way it fits but the material, though cotton, is heavy. I thought it would be much more lightweight for the summer which is why I got the cotton instead of wool. They are closer to a canvas. Otherwise, I would give it 5 stars.

The vest is as promised. The material is heavier than I expected and it is warmer than I expected, but that is probably my lack of understanding. I think that the vest will be a reliable garment that I can use for reenactments for many years.

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.

The perfect everyday waist coat
A perfect waistcoat for everyday wear, and also for wearing with a kilt. Nice tailoring, fits well, and is very comfortable. Not quite as stiff as the similar canvas vests (which soften with wearing), a bit lighter, and just a little more formal. Colours go well with many of the shirts available trough Historic Emporium. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

Plenty of pockets
I bought this vest for wear mainly as an underlayer to the Model 1876 U.S. Army blouse for Indian Wars reenacting. This blouse has no external pockets (unlike modern military uniforms), and only a single internal pocket. The Abilene vest, worn as an under layer, provides pockets enough for all of the small items which I need to have close to hand when reenacting.

Dark but quality
This vest is darker than it appears, but that doesn't mean you won't have a handsome navy blue tone coming through. It can look black in poor lighting, but most of the time it'll be noticeably blue. Material and buttons are sturdy. I recommend adding a pocket watch to this, especially with a silver chain.

I followed the size chart, but I was in between sizes. Got the larger size, which fit me under the arms just right, but was HUGE at the bottom. These seem to be made for large bellied men. Had it tailored and took two inches out of both sides to fit it all the way to my waist. Moral of the story, these flare out a good bit.

I just gotta say this is a fine garment, a very fine garment indeed! Much nicer then expected, not a "costume" actual clothing and of the highest order!

great vest
This is a great vest. And the choices of colors, I had quite a time deciding. I went with the walnut color. It seems to go with alot of other things. The quality is quite good. I gave it one wash before wearing it. And it looks good. I have been wearing it almost daily. As an added layer to keep the cold out. when I've gone outside since getting this vest. It looks like it should hold up for a long time.

Just what he wanted for Christmas
My husband requested a new vest to coordinate with the walnut canvas trousers he had previously purchased from Gent. Emporium. He is a blacksmith and travels for history days in our Midwest/Ozark area and really needs pockets for a wallet, reading glasses, nails, etc. This vest has plenty of pockets, and if this vest washes and wears as well as his last vest from the Emporium we'll be very pleased. It looks very dashing, and the brown color doesn't show the coal smudges!

Amazing Product
I absolutely love the fit and color of the vest. It works beautifully to accent a suit or a formal steampunk costume. While the fabric is comfortable and not too restrictive, it proved too thin to support the clamp on the end of my pocket-watch chain. A minor disappointment in an overall wonderful product that I would recommend in a heartbeat.

Vest for Wedding
I bought this vest after being less than impressed with my 'old fashioned' vest from another retailer. I absolutely love this vest! It has a full cotton, tan back to it. The cut is great. Going for a bit of a settler look for my wedding on my side, and this one helped me hit the mark. Strong recommendation for the look and quality.

Very Pleased
The last night of a planned overseas vacation, we will be celebrating our anniversary at a fairly posh restaurant in London. They absolutely require men in long sleeves and would like a tie and jacket. Not wanting to lug a jacket all over England, I purchased this herringbone vest for him. With dress pants and a bold tie, the vest turns from Old West to English Country Gentleman. We are pleased with the construction and the color.

What I needed
I had a Great Gatsby party to go to and I needed a vest to go with my suit. This was exactly what I needed AND, it is also what I wanted to add to my wardrobe. Love it and received many compliments

The vest fit great and the quality is, damn, good. The back of the vest is a light color and different material which was the only thing was like, "ehhhh" about. But great vest!

Well made and looks very sharp for the bad guy in our Western short film. There is satin fabric in the back. I wish it were all the same tweed material, but it is still very nice.

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.

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

I ordered this along with the matching trousers and we pleased to see how well it fit and how well-made it was. I would definitely recommend this ensemble to anyone looking for durable non-costume period clothing.

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.

The pockets are far too shallow. There are no inside pockets. The fabric is too heavy. The button holes will soon fray. The arm holes are too large.
