Vests still have fitting mechanisms in 2014. They usually have that little ribbon that you can loosen or tighten to make sure it sits smoothly under your coat.

That vest makes the callus on my middle finger hurt from thinking about all those hand-bound eyelets (no idea if the costume has hand-bound eyelets, but if it were traditional it obviously would have been hand sewn).
