    I am most grateful to have found a well made and perfect fit waistcoat.It feels strong and warm. The green is just the colour, often difficult to find. Well done again Orvis. Top company.

    Bought the waistcoat for a birthday present and am very happy with it. It is very good quality (mind you so it should be for the price)! It's worth it though as it looks great. Haven't had to wash it yet so don't know about that yet.

    I am extremely pleased with the waistcoat, both the quality of the fabric and the style are very satisfactory. I found it very difficult finding a quality waistcoat[vest] that was self backed as the majority are Satin backed. Thanks.

    Nice waistcoat - 5/15/2014

    Sturdy, warm and the moleskin has a nice feel to it. Fit is good and the size is accurate per the sites measurements. On the back the strap does offer the ability to draw in any excess quite some way which worked out for me. Definitely a good waistcoat and one for someone's shortlist if you are looking for something like this.

    This is one of the best looking vests I have ever purchased! It looks great with jeans for a casual look, and obviously looks fine with dress slacks. Thank you!
