Stylish and Serviceable,

"This classic herringbone tweed waistcoat is stylish and solidly built, a perfect fit, as good as a tweed jacket but with the flexibility of being able to wear it in any circumstances and with any trousers from formal to jeans. I also have the charcoal version. The inside pocket makes it perfect for carrying a mobile phone."

"Very nice wool fabric and an interesting shade of brown makes this a great addition to my wardrobe. It seems true in size and my medium fits my medium frame just fine. I can't wear a thick shirt with it but a regular weight will be just right."

Versatile and Classy,

"The quality of finish is very good, both inside and out, as I've come to expect from Orvis. The large fit well (6'1" 180 lbs) with the adjustable back strap snugged in a bit. The style is quite unique compared to other vests I own. A great spring or fall layer for fashionable warmth. I received instant compliments on style. This was bought to wear with wool pants and a dress shirt as an alternative to a full dress blazer for a semi-dressed up look. Looks great, it does the trick. I noticed it also works well with anything from full pleated dress pants to casual khakis or jeans. Good job Orvis"

Outstanding Quality.,

"I purchased one of these vests in brown. It is deceivingly warmer than one would assume and because it has a wool back as well as front, it can be worn over a shirt as well as under a sport coat. The collar is the right size to not bulge under a sport coat and not be Western styling. Immediate favorite for Winter, and I'm looking forward to getting one in color charcoal."

poor fit,

"My XL casual wool vest just arrived and when I tried it on over top of my XL Tall Orvis signature twill shirt, there was a 10 inch gap between button hole and button.After borrowing my wife's reading glasses I scanned the vest and I did find the tag that said XL but nowhere could I find where it said Children's size XL. The vest will be returned in the morning. I have always been well satisfied with the quality of everything I have bought from Orvis, it's just the fit that I have a problem with."
