    1760's Waistcoat

    I was trying to make my waistcoat and shirt from some patterns I had. I started with the shirt and quickly determined I'd never finish in time for the Alafai River Rendezvous that I wanted to attend. I ordered the waistcoat and very quickly received what I thought was a perfect addition to my kit. It fit perfect and looked great with my coat and breeches. The service was excellent, I'll also be writing a review for the shirt I ended up ordering about 2 days later. I will definitely be a return customer, not only because the quality of the items was excellent, but because the service was outstanding. Thanks.

    Nice bit of warmth!

    Being a member of the Michigan Sons of the American Revolution Color Guard, we can be called to muster any month of the year. Bought one of these wool waistcoats in Frankenmuth, MI in the summer of 2018, and this is THE waistcoat to wear when the weather gets chilly. Great material, fit, and price. I would recommend this to anyone looking for something a bit warmer than a cotton/linen.

    Looks cool

    I got the wrong version. They sent me ghe revolutionary war version, but I couldnt get it exchanged because I already wore it. Now I will have to buy the correct one. I think I'll get it in blue this time.

    I am very pleased with

    I am very pleased with my new waistcoat. It is made very well. I like the cotton lining. It is an extra layer of warmth also. At $100 less expensive than the competition, it's a real buy! I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a well made 1760s waistcoat

    A Beautiful and Popular Waistcoat!

    I was looking for a reasonably priced vest as part of a holiday ensemble. I went to all the usual suspects, from Big A through HE, landing at Samson Historical on my way to Brand Zee. And, here I stopped, and here I shopped! Everywhere else either wasn't the simple look I craved or was cheap costumery. I wanted a genuinely historical appearance and sturdy construction, despite the seasonal intent of the kit. I finally found it at Samson! I wore it a conference of Professional Christmas Entertainers three days after its speedy arrival. The vest wowed them! You may expect orders from many Very Large Men with White Beards shortly.
