This is the functional daily-wear vest of the 1880s Victorian gentleman and cowboy. Try getting into your pockets when riding a horse, and you'll know instantly why real cowboys wore pocketed vests.
Our round lapeled vest was the latest in style in the late 1880s. Features a six-button front with a round lapel, two waist pockets and two breast pockets. Seamstress-made in various cottons in multiple colors, solids and patterns. The back panel and lining of each vest are made of a fine cotton, and has an adjustment belt and buckle to achieve a perfectly-fitted look.
Comes standard with a Black back panel and lining. But if you would rather have your back panel and lining in Brown, Tan, or Gray, please include a note to us on your order form stating your back and lining color preference (e.g. "Gray Back and Lining"). There is no extra charge to change your back panel and lining color.
An attractive detailed ribbon trim is available on this garment for a nominal fee. Ribbon trim follows lapel down the front and to the lining on both sides; pocket edges are also detailed. Your trim (or piping) choices are Black, Navy, Brown, Tan, or Gray (please see the last photo below for actual trim colors and placement). If you would like trim added to your vest, please select the "With Trim" option below and, please include a note to us on your order form stating your trim color preference (e.g. "Gray Trim").
