A classic wardrobe item -
I'm one of those people who like having a good denim skirt, shirt, and vest to mix and match with other choices. This vest fits well (I'm normally a small-to-medium in tops, but in Orvis find that XS is my size), has a flattering profile, and is an attractive addition for me.
Button Issue -

Love the vest but... the bottom button was off and laying loose in the bag when it arrived. Being a metal push-into-a-metal-post style button, I am doomed to wear the vest without a bottom button and with an empty buttonhole. Naturally, I can't get the rest of the buttons off because of the button style, so can't replace them all. Didn't want to pay the $10 to return it. . Grrgh.
Great vest! -

I had been looking for a denim vest for a long time, so when I found this one I was elated as it seemed to be everything I wanted in this type of vest -- and when it arrived it met all my expectations. I normally wear a petite large, but even though this is not petite it fits great. Washes nicely, too.

Again, very nice...but...not on me...I feel your fashions are very classic...but...the postage kills you...

The vest is beautifully made. It fits so well. The weight of the fabric is perfect. I love it.

The first vest I ordered, I washed it before I wore it, and the top buttonhole frayed so I called Orvis for and exchange. When the replacement came the buttonholes were not done real well either so I returned it also. The vest is nice, a real good fit, so it really is a shame the workmanship was so shoddy. not sure Orvis handles the same quality of clothing it used to. May think twice before I order from them again.
Just as I Imagined -

The denim vest order was handled extremely well, i.e. delivered promptly, arrived in great condition and, if returned was required, an easy return procedure.
Glad I Bought it! -

Nice weight denim and fit is perfect with large enough sleeve holes to allow it to fit nicely over blouses and sweaters. I will wear this often.

Solid wardrobe addition -

Another just-right Orvis product. I've been looking for a replacement denim vest for some time, and this is what I've been after. The weight and cut make it flattering with tees, blouses and turtlenecks for around town, the office or out to dinner. Perfect!
The Practical Fashion of Vintage Denim
Few fabrics can boast the tradition and the colorful history that denim claims. From gold miner’s staple to the darling of high fashion, this down-to-earth indigo twill has worked its way into our hearts and into our closets. Our signature version, Orvis Vintage Denim is a traditional mid-weight denim made of pure cotton.
The Rugged Outdoor Fabric of Choice for Centuries
No other fabric is as quintessentially American as denim is. Used for the sails on Christopher Columbus’s ships, it first arrived on our shores in 1492, but the rugged textile had already been known in Europe for centuries. From the original serge de Nîmes, denim had been manufactured in France since 300 A.D. ad the outdoor fabric of choice for workers and farmers throughout Northern Europe.
Orvis Vintage Denim: The Toughness of Original Denim, but Prewashed for Softness
This sturdy cotton fabric derives its toughness from the weave — twill is the strongest of all of the fabric weaves, with threads woven in a tight diagonal pattern for increased strength. This diagonal pattern, or twill line, makes the fabric very durable and prevents it from tearing or ripping easily. The steeper the twill line, the higher quality the fabric; this is because the steeper weaves have more yarns per inch. Woven in this strong pattern, our 8 oz. Vintage Denim is prewashed for softness and will only get better with age.
Great for Travel
Orvis Vintage Denim is ideal for travel. Our sturdy, easy-care skirts, pants, and dresses are as stylish as they are comfortable, resist wrinkles, and the mid-weight fabric is suitable for year-round wear. Because our Vintage Denim is so versatile, practical, and popular, we offer a wide variety of styles for women in traditional denim blue, plus a range of wardrobe-expanding colors.
