Excellent quality reasonably priced. Recommend to all!
It was great!! The original one I purchased was a little too snug. So, I sent it back and was able to switch it out for a size bigger. It is nicely made and hopefully will last for a long, long time.
I have worn a particular size sports coat for many years. Before ordering the waistcoat I had my chest and "belly" measured to be sure I was ordering the correct size. I must not have gotten the "belly" measurement correct and it was too tight to wear. After talking to Samson, I returned the waistcoat and ordered the next size up. No problem with the procedure for the return, it was cheerful and easy. My new waistcoat came in and fit very well. Looks great! But I know the measurement I had made was wrong. So get a good tailor to make your measurements, it will save time and money.
I already have two waistcoats from Samson and I picked up four more on this order for our regiment. Good quality construction, materials and fit. The pockets securely hold a pocket watch and a flint wallet. Will no doubt be coming back for more as our regiment grows.
Nicely made. The wool is fairly thick, good for cool/cold weather. It fits snugly, as 18th century waistcoats should.
Excellent quality and fit
I recently ordered a waistcoat from Samson Historical's online store. The order arrived in three days, in good condition. Unfortunately, it was a bit too small, so I used the online service to request replacement and sent the item back. The replacement waistcoat arrived in five days, and was exactly what I needed. The waistcoat is perfect and the purchase and replacement process was far easier and faster than I expected. Kudos! I'll be back!
The quality of this waistcoat is phenomenal. I just received it today and I absolutely love it! The price is so affordable!
Great family to work with. Nice construction on the weskit. Fits well I would just like to see real pewter buttons used. That is the only thing I would change . Awesome company to work with .
Thank you for the feedback, we are pursuing this option and expect to implement the change very soon.
I bought my waistcoat when Samson historical started their business .my waistcoat is still going strong .I have not replaced a button or had a rip or tear in the material it is still going strong I do 30 events a year and I want it every time I highly recommend them get yours today
I love it fits great. The buttons are a little shiny for my station . Easily fixed. Thank you I am very pleased Your Most Humble Servant Matthew smith
The fabric and fit are comfortable. Rounded up about an inch for the initial order, but wound up exchanging for the next size above that (and I'm not a larger person). Comfortable and a nice cut.
excellent value - working pockets are a plus - seams well sewed - fit is very good - fits in perfectly with our Clark's Regiment uniform
Wonderful. Well made.
A well made waistcoat of excellent quality materials, good fit, speedy delivery.
