Purchase the Scoundrels Long Pirate Vest in purple. The color was true to the color advertised. It is very well-constructed. It looks fantastic on and he received numerous compliments and where did you buy it. The only problem we had with this garment is the buckle in the back does not stay closed. But, I fixed it with just a few tacts with the needle and thread. I would highly recommend this product to any Pirate or Privateer that wants to look a little more classy.
