I absolutely love these boots! I bought them to complete a steam punk outfit for WonderCon and they were a hit. I still love them and am trying to work them into my everyday routine. They were comfortable and not too tight fitting since I sized up to a 10. My only warning is the bottoms of these are super-slick. I was gliding all over my home carpets. Still lovely and can't wait to break them out again.

This shirt is very well made, and is of a fine fabric that drapes beautifully, washes well, and air-dries without too many wrinkles. My husband loves it, and wears it as often as he can!

Once again the sizes are dead on and material is one of the most comfortable to wear. Giving a crisp look but soft against the skin. breathable fabric is never hot and that is a plus in Florida. Beautiful print makes this a keeper for casual and dress alike.

Good, hard to find product. I'm a bit disappointed there is no inner lining in the trunks, so I'm not sure what garment to use around my genitals. If I am to trust the design's authenticity, I suppose the lack of an inner lining only underscores bathing suit innovations since the era of this style suit. Also, with no draw string to hold up the trunks, there is a danger toward a moment of the every immodesty that I am trying to protect by purchasing this product.

Makes any victorian outfit classy. When reenacting historical characters, this jacket suggests authenticity to the woman I'm portraying. I would recommend this jacket to anyone needing a lovely jacket.

I had to cut off the bottom white slip because I'm short, but it still works as a lovely victorian dress. I reenact historical characters and this dress helps to create the right element.

My husband had his groomsmen wear this vest at our wedding. They looked incredibly sharp in it. Even though black was not one of our wedding colors, the intricate pattern on the Midnight Hour vest offset the severity of black. Thus, the men looked great.

My husband wore this vest for our wedding. It was so beautiful that he didn't want (or need) to wear a jacket over it! It went well with a black ascot and white long-sleeved dress shirt. We highly recommend this vest for anyone who likes a classy and non-traditional look for any formal occasion.

I've had the black puff tie for a year now, and it's fantastic! Beautiful, easily adjustable, and decent construction. I notice other reviewers have complained about durability, but it's never been a problem for me. I leave the pearl tie tack permanently in it so as not to have to poke more holes in it every time I put it on. Note that you definitely cannot wear this with a traditional point-collar shirt - if you're wearing it with an off-the-rack modern shirt, it has to be wing-collar.

Pretty good goggles. They seemd a littlewonky at first, but after surviving my 1yr old daughter trying to put them on and off my face they definately earned their merrit. If you're going for steampunk these are the way to go. Durable and definately giving the wearer no less than a +3 to his/her charisma.

While I love the look of this product, the model who was to wear it for the photo shoot had a very thick neck and I could have used an additional 2 inches of length at each end to help keep it tucked into the vest. I will continue to use it but I apparently need to find smaller people. Hopefully a longer version of this product will become available.

Make no mistakes - this is a truly excellent article of clothing. It is well made and I expect to get many years of use out of it. I initially got it for a photo shoot but upon seeing the quality I have worn it to several events and I receive a lot of compliments and questions about where I found it.

It's just a tie tack but they're hard to find anymore. It came quick, in great condition, and was reasonably priced. I don't know if it's a real pearl but it will fool the casual observer. The shipping box was huge though, big enough to park my RV inside.

I love my trousers! I wear them all the time! I thought that they might be a little big at first but after heir first washing they fit like a dream! They are perfect for the industrial revolution look but I've also work them with a 40s top and western tie and I was a perfect 40s look! I felt like I was in a honkey tonk band!I would buy another pair in a heart beat! And I hope to do so soon!

Even better than advertised. Shipping was extremely fast, and customer service was excellent. The hat arrived in sturdy packaging, padded well. I couldn't have asked for better.The hat I purchased was of the best quality, and received many compliments when I wore it. I wore the hat for two full days and it stood up perfectly to a great deal of abuse. It remains in top quality condition, and I expect will serve me for many years.Thank-you Historical Emporium! I look forward to my next purchase.

I am very pleased with the gloves. They will make a perfect gift for each of the women attending the party!!They are whimsical, and should fit each woman regardless of her size.**Please note that I ordered and paid for 22 pair of the gloves, but only received 21 pair as you did not have enough in stock when I placed my order. I will look for the last pair in the mail in the near future. **

I have been looking for German goggles with the screw off interchangeable lenses for over a year. These are the exact model I was searching for, they fit well and are fairly comfortable. The lenses they ship with are tinted slightly green, and difficult to see out of at night. During the day they are a perfect substitute for sun glasses. This can be easily fixed by purchasing clear lenses and switching them out.Design flaws? No peripheral vision! I wanted to ride a bicycle with these on, but I do not recommend it for safety reasons.The fasteners on the elastic straps come off if you stretch them any decent length (over a helmet for example) but that's the ONLY real down side of them, and can be fixed by sewing, or riveting the elastic to your desired length.All in all, YES I would buy another pair and, or recommend these, they look awesome and function well.

I ordered this shirt for a concert, and received it in impeccable timing. It certainly fits well, and the look of it always gets a great reaction from my fellow classical musicians. Combined with the cravats and vests this makes a simply wonderful look, and it's a must-have for anyone intent on building up a great outfit. Marvelous!

I rather like these goggles. I've had a habit of ruining every pair of sunglasses I've ever owned, but the solid brass and tin case have kept these surviving. I have to admit that the cloth components have a tendency to wear down, but I was intending to change out the straps any way. On that note, these make a great starting point for any crafty folk to modify and add their own personal flair. Wonderful.

Quite a wonderful cravat that works well with anything from high elegance to the average working man (of distinction). I've found myself wearing it with any number of vests from both this site and from others. It certainly goes well, and different styles of knot are also a possibility (with some practice and experimentation). Good show!

I purchased a couple tokens for my husband, kind of as a joke. I am absolutely pleased with them. They're good and sturdy, and the imprint on them isn't going to wear off anytime soon. I was pleasantly surprised, especially with the low cost of them. They're definitely worth it.

This is a bit thinner than i had expected. I bought it looking to get a winter type ( something like a P coat) coat but instead it feels more like a modern suit jacket. That's not to say I don't like it. Quite the contrary it looks great and it incredibly comfortable. I can't wait for the cooler weather so I can wear it again.

I bought this walking stick recently for my husband to finish off his costume for the Dickens festival coming up in December. It is a very nice heavy wooden walking stick and the silver plated cap gives it a nice touch of elegance. I have seen antique walking sticks that look very similar. This is not a cheap costume quality cane, it is a usable wood cane. I am very happy with the quality of the cane, especially for the price. I know my husband will be able to use it for years to come. Thanks for your great products and service!

After breaking my ankle in an auto accident,I needed a cane to help me get around. Surching on line, as this was the only shopping I could do, I found this sight. Easily got what I needed, and at a good price. Helpful instructions came with it, to find the correct length for me and simple to do.

This hat is delightfully impractical. It looks fantastic on, and while there is a dearth of places to wear such a thing, it was the perfect thing for a graduation gift. It has a good form(wearable, as well as dressy), and is of a nice felt(and the pin and feather on the side is a nice touch. The hat arrived in quite good time, considering that we ordered it rather late, and I can think of nothing to say against it.

I already owned one of these on a necklace that I'd bought from a jewellery artist on etsy. This one is just as impressive, and I'm sure it will make an excellent gift. The only thing that I'd be concerned about is that the hourglass is a little loose in the brass casing. It's padded, though, so hope for the best.

This is a high quality pant. Do be sure, as the instructions tell you, to order up a size for your waist. One size up gave me a perfect fit. Also remember the pants are period-- they have a button fly, not a zipper!I wear these pants for a victorian-era street festival. I had many compliments on them this year.

Firstly, this tie is not satin. It's polyester. The webpage does say 'satin' and while I didn't believe it was a satin tie for a second, it really should be advertised properly. Secondly, this tie is simply a modern black tie. A 19th Century tie should be shorter. Thankfully I'm fairly tall, so I can make it fit - just, but a lot of smaller guys are going to have this tie poking out under their waistcoats, which is definitely a 19th / early 20th Century fashion faux-pas. Still, if you can make it fit, and if you're above 5ft 10" tall, it looks good.
Beery

When I first got the hat it looked nothing like the image on the webpage. This hat's brim is almost flat all around - looks more like a Pork Pie hat than a bowler. Bowlers should have at least some curve and lift to the brim edges on each side - this bowler had none. Also, the felt used is very thin indeed - almost toy hat material.I decided to take the risk and adjust the hat myself in the shower, figuring that if it fell apart it wasn't worth having anyway, and I didn't care enough about the cost to return it. Fortunately, after a good soaking its shape adjusted pretty well and now it looks like an old fashioned Derby hat should. Unfortunately, in making it right the felt lost some more stiffness and is probably one light rain shower away from falling apart entirely.Still, it came out okay, so I'm happy enough, especially since the price was right. I just wish I hadn't been forced to adjust it to get it looking right.

This skirt is awesome. It feels nice and light and great on your skin. It is very trendy as it can be tied give a bustled skirt look. It is also a bit longer than it looks in the picture advertised which makes it even better and gives a better look. I would definitely recommend this skirt to any woman who wants to feel like a princess.

The watch was exactly as shown on the picture--if there was any difference, it was negligible. I wear it every day with no signs of wear and tear thus far. The chain the came with the watch was more than long enough (I can put it on without unfastening it without any struggle).The delivery was VERY prompt and well packed. The comfirmation email I received felt less like a standardized email and more personalized--a refreshing change. I had no problems with anything during the whole process. And I got a free replacement battery with the watch!

This was a gift for my husband. The quality is excellent: the seams are sturdy and well-finished, the fabric is soft but strong and the cut is very flattering. Worn with a vest, this is a classic item that stands out in a crowd while understated. In warmer climates, such as TX, however, the use of this shirt is limited to the cooler months of spring and winter.

This ascot appeared white on my browser but is in fact silver. It is almost too beautiful to wear. Lovely material, perfect ascot shape. I want to buy several different stickpins to show it off properly. Not a good idea for extremely hot days as it is not as breathable as one might think.

bought vest to wear over shirtwaist. happy with quality of vest but was way too large for me to make use of it. my boyfriend who is normally a 3x tried it and it was still somewhat large for him. sizes normally run small for us. will make my next purchase smaller. vest is strong and durable and more of a chocolate color than walnut.

This skirt has rapidly become one of my favorite things in my closet. The fit is fantastic and I love being able to adjust the bustle.

Because of my unusual measurements, I knew my coat would require some alteration. because of this, I didn't get to wear it very often before the warm weather set in. however, I got lots of compliments and comment from people about it's handsome look and cut. I myself am quite happy with the texture and look of the coat. It is pleasantly versatile, handsome, and is exactly what I had wanted from it. I have recommended this company to others as a result.

For the price, this pith helmet is a great buy if you want a nice costume helmet. It's fairly light and the adjustable head strap inside does the trick to make sure it fits your head.The one thing I don't like about it is the chin strap. In the photos you can see that the chin strap is wrapped up around the front (or back) of the helmet. Well that's where it's gonna stay. The chin strap was not made to be used as an actual chin strap, it's sewn into the helmet in such a way that you can't pull it down under your chin to keep the helmet on. It's just there for show. I'll probably end up cutting it out and putting in my own REAL chin strap.I have tried to find a more substantial "real" pith helmet for a lot more money, but I haven't been able to find one in the 19th century style like this. So if your a stickler for a victorian/Edwardian period look, this one is your choice, unless you're lucky enough to find a vintage one.

If you ever wanted that stylish look at an inexpensive price this is the outfit for you. Don't forget the bloomers because they really make the outfit. People stop me wherever I go and ask me where I found my outfit. It's not just for the beach. I love it and I have fun wearing it.

Cutest hat, right out of the 1920's and everyone comments on how cute it is. It was really a great and fun summer find. Keeps the sun out of your eyes and the conversations rolling.

This is simply awesome! I look fantastic in this waist coat!It's super durable and it feels like a utilitarian piece of clothing rather than a piece of formal wear. I would recommend it to anyone! I love having the extra pockets this vest offers! Buy This!

The skirt runs large both in the waist and the length . I was actually looking for an ankle-length skirt for a turn-of-the-century, Gibson Girl look. That's how the skirt is pictured. However, it's actually floor length and more appropriate to a mid-19th c. look. I'm 5'7" so I would imagine it would be REALLY long on a shorter person. Other than that it is well made.

My now husband purchased these shoes after months of looking for the right style. We did a steampunk/victorian based wedding. We purchased all his clothes for the wedding from this site after months of looking elsewhere we returned to complete the outfit. They where just the last piece to match some wonderful clothes. We did an out door/indoor wedding. They stood up well to the dirt, dancing, and sword play at our wedding. We then took them on our hoonymoon and they filled in for modern dress shoes.The shoes did squeak throughout the wedding and week long cruise, so do take some time to break them in before any important events. They are stiff, but that like the squeking we preseve with go away with a proper break in period.We will return again to buy more outfits for future events from this site. My husband looks horid in a modern suit but dashing in the victorian wear.

This is a wonderful coat, very high quality materials, good fit, looks great. I really like all the men's products at the HIstorical Emporium; this coat is of good cloth, not too warm, and well constructed. The one criticism I have is that the buttons seemed out of place and inauthentic; I swapped them easily for some rubber buttons of the period (you can find button dealers at local vintage fairs, or perhaps online) and all was well.

I'm a colonial re-enactor and hammer dulcimer player. I started playing a Victorian event several years ago and decided it's time to update my costume to the correct period. I ordered the 49er vest and was very pleased with the historic style and quality put into the vest. I'm sure I'll get many years of use out of it and look forward to ordering more in the future. I highly recommend the product to anyone interested in victorian or old west clothing. It would also be a good choice for cowboy action shooters.

I bought this skirt for my Granddaughter's steampunk Wedding. From the moment I took it from the box I felt like I stepped back into the day when garment sewing was a very serious matter. This skirt is PUT TOGETHER! I need a Petite length, and this skirt goes to the floor in front, and has just a bit of a train in back, which I intend to play up with a great petticoat. If I could offer one suggestion; find a way to make the waists adjustable by as much as 2". Its easy to do and better for the millions of us who don't have wide hips, but do have a wide waist with no hips to speak of.

This ascot is a quality product- worthy of the finest victorian era gentlemen. Of generous proportions and nice cut, it is silky, sturdy and well-sewn. The paisley pattern is subtle yet bold. Once wrapped about my manly neck, your ascot proved to be a powerful lure that brought the most beautiful ladies at the Ball to shamelessly introduce themselves to me, whether their escorts were present or not!

This is the classic black long skirt. It can be worn as a costume for several different eras from medieval to early 20th century. It can be worn with or without hoops. The waist can be adjusted using a clever button panel. It is timeless and always looks good. I gave it 4 stars because I have to starch and iron it to make it look its best. That's a lot of material to iron!

I was looking for a high collar edwardian shirt. I found an authentic shirt from England that was $150 US. This shirt from GE is perfect. It is very affordable. I wear it with collar up with a vest and cravat. I am a deeply spiritual person and created an ensemble that outwardly demonstrated my inner self. The high collar is reminiscent of a clerical collar, yet is not one. I complete the ensemble with a full length Renaissance robe.Thanks GE for helping to look quire dashing, even if I do say so myself.

The color of taupe was not quite what I wanted. I wore it once, but thought it would be a hassle to return it, so didn't attempt to do it so.The style was okay, but I found I wanted something more authentic--a self-tie cravat. Please do not allow my review to discount the fine quality of GE products. It is an excellent product, just not quite what I wanted.

Who knew that little black lace gloves would be the highlight of my 1910 shopgirl costume? They were. I got so many compliments.I guess they added a bit of authenticity to my black skirt and white blouse. The gloves were comfortable and not scratchy like some lace gloves are. Having my fingers free was great when I worked the gift shop. I could pick up things and handle money just as if I didn't have gloves on. I did recommend them to many of my customers and would definitely recommend this little accessory to make a big wow at any event.

I bought these gloves for my boyfriend. They're great-- they fit perfectly. However, the snaps were too robust for the fabric of the gloves and they tore the first time he wore them. The customer service at Gentleman's Emporium was excellent and they sent me a new pair, but the snaps are still a concern. Buttons might be better.

This watch looks good and operates satisfactorily. It has several negative points against it, however.1) It does not feel solid. The metal is very lightweight and feels as though it is a cheap toy. 2) While the outer magnifying cover appears to be glass, the inner watch cover is thin, flexible plastic. Of course, the outer glass cover protects the watch most of the time, and one only open the cover occasionally to use it as a magnifying glass. Never-the-less, it detracts from a sense of quality.3) The stem on mine is a bit loose. Often, the stem pops up as I put the watch in my pocket. This disengages the gears and stops the watch hands from moving. The result is that I frequently need to reset the time. This does not happen every day, but it does happen much more often than it ought (perhaps 1-2 times a week), and usually when I most need to know the time.

I would recommend it, and have, to others in need of quality, historically accurate clothing.

I don't know where H.E. is getting these, but they're just great! It's sturdy, usable, and looks great when you're in the crow's nest looking for Island X. That being said, It feels like an antique, but acts like a prop. It was shipped in a musty leather case, and I had to disassemble the thing and clean out the inside and the lenses. I say it's like a replica because it's a fairly low magnification with no ability to focus.If you're looking for a sexy, vintage telescope, this is the best I've found in the internet. But if you're looking for a tool to spot land from a mile away, well... better luck elsewhere.

These were my first Emporium purchase. They fit well (ordered my normal waist size, I'm big and tall). Hemmed them myself. Their medium weight works well in the summer (I play period music at historical events) and are roomy enough for an extra layer underneath. The gray herringbone is dressy... perfect with a vest and cravat.

I really love these guys. They're lightweight, comfortable, and seem to match my "Nuclear Winter Survivor" getup better than any other pair of goggles. The glass lenses are sturdy, being held in place by small crimps in the brass rim. They were a little loose when shipped, but nothing a quick squeeze of needle-nose pliers couldn't fix. Additionally, because of the crimps in the frame, they breathe really well, (a rarity with goggles in my experience). my one piece of criticism: the fabric straps are a little flimsy, and if you're wearing them for 50+ hours, you might want to replace them with a more durable fabric. even so, I give this 5 stars, because you actually CAN replace the straps yourself.. and do it for under $5.

I've used a handful of fake glasses in my day, (mostly as an image changer when giving lectures) and I have learned that they are not all made equal. The metal on this particular pair is flimsy, and arrived bent. the lenses are different than standard glasses lenses, and the non-adhesive manufacturing sticker on them has left a permanent white mark. You might want to look elsewhere for this prop.

Black dress GlovesThe gloves are of a very nice sturdy material. I can still text on my phone and multiple other things while wearing them so it's almost like nothing is there. the snap on the gloves also makes it much easier to put them on and take them off

For that posh look, this is the finest collar I've seen. It's stiff and cotton for a real crisp, clean look. Get the next size up if your measurement is in-between sizes and you can't go wrong then get/make a shirt with the same neck measurement.

The entire scope is well made and sturdy. It is hard to use at first, as getting the the two pieces of glass to line up for viewing clearly is tricky, but it is functional and surprisingly clear. It's more than just a steam punk accessory.My only con is the case that comes with it is kind of flimsy and the strap is lame, but I didn't even realize it came with a case in the first place so I'm very happy with my purchase.

The ascot is a much better purchase. The silk puffy tie fell apart after about 6 months. I ended up having to use a paper clip to fasten it in the back and the neck strap kept coming off. The ascot is easy to tie, looks better and is one piece so there is nothing to fall off.

I recently joined a steampunk group based around cosplay and a fantasy story and my costume required me to have a hat. Till now I've always hated hats they're uncomfortable and they never fit quite right but thats what I get for buying one size fits all right? This hat fits perfectly and is made with quality materials. It was more than worth the cost.

For the money, this is a good product and I will and have recommended it to friends. It is not completely historically accurate, but it will pass. Do watch the sizing, however. We bought my husband a large, based on his chest size, only to find that both the shirt and shorts were way too large. I'm also not too fond of the fabric chosen, but understand that cotton knit would probably soak up too much water when used. Aside from the sizing issue, I'm happy with this item.

I took a flying leap of faith with these boots - I can try on 5 pairs of footwear and have nothing fit. I usually wear a 9 or 9 1/2 so I ordered in a size 10 and put in those trimable foam shoe inserts. wore them all day the fist time and walked for miles in a parade. wow! very comfy! I've worn them 4 times since and I'm very happy. Probablly will get them in other colors as well.

I volunteer at a State Park where we dress in period clothing. I bought this shawl to go with a blue skirt and white blouse I have. Unfortunately, the sleeves on the blouse are too full and so the shawl doesn't work the way I wanted it to. When I get another blouse, I will get one with sleeves that will allow me to use the shawl. It's very beautiful and feminine and definitely adds a nice touch to an outfit.

I volunteer at a State Park where we dress in period clothing. I'm stunned at the reactions I get to these boots. Women and men want to see them, ask where I got them, how much did they cost, how beautiful they are and on and on. I do love them and they go beautifully with my summer victorian outfits. The only thing I would say on the downside is that I've had to cover some of the seams where the lace and leather come together with tape so make a smoother edge. That may or may not be an issue for other women.

I bought a 1911 Maxwell and wanted an outfit that a driver would wear in 1911. I bought everything needed to look like a car driving "dandy" and it brought smiles and thumbs up from many people who saw me driving in the period clothes. It was great fun at a fair price. When the pants turned out to be the wrong size (my fault) I called the store and received fast, professional service.

I guess in California handmade includes modern sewing machine. I am a hardcore authentic civil war reenactor in Tennessee. "Handmade" in this hobby usually means it's either handsewn or at least sewn with a period sewing machine of period fabric and thread. Perhaps that's my fault for assuming. This cravat is sewn with a modern machine and the body is senthetic fabric, probably rayon or something like it. It's hard to tell about the thread, but it appears to be a synthetic blend. None of these materials can be used in authentic reenacting. In fact the last few events I have attended they would have told me to take it off and leave it in my vehicle. I'm not saying I don't like Historical Emporium or that I won't purchase anything else from them as they do have a nice selection of repro. pocket watches that I've been looking closely at. I'm just saying that they can't claim this cravat as being historiclly authentic because it's not. I can not use it and the only reason I didn't send it back was because the shipping and hassle of it is more then I have time for.

The pictures do not do the waistcoat justice, its quality being greater than what is shown on the website. The material is comfortable, allows air flow, and mixes very well with any white shirt and dark colored pants. Despite it being an old fashioned waistcoat designed for the late 1800's setting, it works very well for period costumes well up into the 1920's and even the 1930's. For anyone looking for a waistcoat that is subtle from a distance and nicely detailed up close, the Dominic Vest is likely the best choice. The extra buttons shipped with the waistcoat are also a buyer-friendly reliever of worry should any of them come off over the years.

Very Poor quality keychain, it lost all the sand from the hourglass within a day or two, and there was a hole in the glass tube inside, which was also not fastened inside the metal sheathing sturdily, so it flopped back and forth from top to bottom constantly, poor construction. Also not enough sand in the hourglass.

The perfect accent piece for a victorian ensemble! I love my pith helmet, although I get very few excuses to wear it. The adjustable sweatband on the inside fastens with Velcro, for an infinite number of head sizes, although on smaller heads the hat will probably look awkwardly large even though it'll fit fine. As pictured, the chinstrap can be attractively stashed across the front brim if you don't want to use it (although it too works well).

I love the fabric and style of this vest, but the cut is better suited for tall people. I'm 5'9" and I bought a small, and the vest was still quite long in front, and looks especially so under a tailcoat. The armholes are quite large though, so you could conceivably have a tailor take in the shoulder seams to adjust the front length. I still recommend this vest as a good value though.

This clean, unsuspecting shirt, really is quite a bit more. It's a perfect fit and doesn't distract the eye, especially if hidden by the 'Paisley Ascot' cravat, or just a simple tie. Baggy in all the right places, and comfortable too.

I'd always wanted a pocket watch for my late-19th/early-20th Century impressions, & had always been directed by friends to simply 'go cheap' & buy just any ol' inaccurate, modern pocket watch. The alternative, we figured, was to bite the bullet & go on Ebay for an original. This little watch, however, satisfies immensely & inexpensively! Its not a 1-inch miniscule model as I've seen go for the same price elsewhere, but a nice-sized, slim, lightweight watch that won't weigh down your vest pocket. After a few months the battery is still going strong, something I can't even say about a modern watch bought from Walmart! What's more, the good folks here were kind enough to include a replacement battery, and package it all in a nice, light carry bag. Overall a very good buy for the money!

It's going to be an outdoor garden wedding, in the month of September, so this is JUST PERFECT in every way! It needed only a small amount of altering to make it a bit more tailored through the middle and the seamstress I used said the construction of the jacket was excellent and very easy to alter.All in all a fabulous purchase and a great jacket!

Nothing shows dirt like white, and nothing attracts dirt like your hands. Make sure you wash these between uses! I washed them a few days after wearing them, and all the dirt came right off. While these look good when you need to wear them, don't expect them to fit everyone extremely well.

I was overjoyed when my spats arrived, I put them on straight away and they fit perfectly. It is not a good idea however, to wear them with dark dyed trousers before you wash the trousers first as I learned the hard way (blue dye all over them until I washed the spats themselves). Overall great product, along with respect of random people about town.

Ascots (or at least this type of ascot) are not adjustable in length. I have a 16" neck, and this ascot is too small for me: the narrow part in the middle isn't long enough for me to get it around my neck and into its loose knot. The only reason I didn't return it was the matching pocket square that came with it, which I often wear on its own and think is quite lovely.

I bought this vest in conjunction with the birmingham sack coat and pants. I believe I bought the medium. I have about a 39" chest, and a 32" waist. The vest was a touch too big in the chest, and I might have to fix that myself, but the waist fit due to the adjustment in the back. Overall a nice vest with deep pockets for anything you may have.

I wish you would offer them this way. They are very accurate in style and in the loose cut. They make a nice finishing touch to a man's victorian outfit. I also do wish you made them with French cuffs. Even so, I am very pleased with these shirts and recommend them to any gentleman looking to achieve a complete victorian/Edwardian impression.

These suspenders were well made, but they are too long. I'm 5'7" with a normal proportioned body, but the metal clips ended up at my shoulders, way too high! I had to cut these (right at the clips) to shorten them, but because of the material they are made out of, the suspenders started to fray at the cut.I sewed them together, and my fingers are crossed. I am hoping these will be useful for a 2nd wear.I would be weary of recommending these, unless you are very "long bodied."S

I purchased two pair of these, one in brown and one in black. When I opened the box, they looked much too narrow. They fit excellently! They are extremely comfortable for me. The leather is very supple and conforms to your foot with ease. I have been wearing them to break them in, but they really do not need this. They are a dress quality shoe, not labourer's. I am extemely pleased with this purchase. I only wish you supplied brown laces with the brown shoes.

I was looking for a pair of period trousers for a dramatic performance I was cast in with little advance notice. Because the Historical Emporium was able to get these trousers to me in time, my purchase was one of desperation. From the photo, I had hoped that the trousers might be a little more formal. They are, in reality, more of a denim type material, but properly pressed and from the stage, they filled the bill perfectly. I have no misgivings and do not blame the Emporium for my misaprehention. The trousers were exactly what they advertised, they were delivered very quickly and in perfect shape. The customer service was excellent!

Best pair of braces I've been able to find. Not thin or flimsy, well put together and they hold everything right where I want it, with enough give to let me move - and sit - without any undue pulling, grabbing or tearing.Thank You.

There's a lot of competition out there for pocket watches of various styles. There is inevitably a trade off between quality and cost. I think that this product represents good quality at a cost that doesn't require too much thought.The watch came in a presentable and protective little cloth bag.

I purchased these gloves because they had the extra button detail. Unfortunately the faux buttons started popping off as soon as I slipped them on. As there is no shank to the button, there is no way that I can sew the missing pieces back on. I will probably pop the rest of the faux buttons off and replace them with shank buttons. The gloves otherwise fit well.

I just got my twill duster and I am very pleased with it. It is made of a medium thickness of cotton and would be a good autumn coat. The detailing (the way it buttons at the back) is excellent and the cut is extremely faithful to the original style coats. The price is excellent for what you get, and I can't wait to wear it.

These are most excellent goggles I purchased. They are comfortable, easily adjustable, and super stylish. Saddly, they came in the mail the day after the steampunk world's fair. A few costomizations on these babies, and I'll be the hottest tinkerer around.

Especially after washing. The wing is sewn down, so threading a tie through it is a little awkward. I was unable to find a simple wing collar shirt in a long size at a reasonable price, and none at all in wrinkle-free material, which seems increasingly available in most shirts these days.

I was nervous about purchasing this boot as there were comments made about size. I take a size ten, medium. I contacted your customer service department to find out more about the size issue. They were very well-informed about the sizing issue. It really wasn't an issue with size, but with width. I ordered the boot in a ten and it fit perfectly! The boot is comfortable and well-made. I wear them for my two-mile, in-costume walking tour. Thank you for your help!

The walking stick looks great from a distance. Your eyes are drawn to the shiny metalwork on the head of the stick. Unfortunately the casting of the metal pommel lets the item down.The walking stick has a rubber pad on the bottom to prevent slips.

A very nice vest; it works well as part of a period costume and works equally well as a subtle accent piece in a very modern ensemble - I've worn it both ways. The two rows of buttons are all functional and must all be buttoned, which can be a bit of a pain - the buttonholes are only barely large enough for the cloth-covered buttons to fit through. My only substantive complaint is that the pockets are extremely shallow - just deep enough for a pocketwatch, but if you were planning on slipping anything else into them (say, a cell phone), don't count on it.

This apron was exactly what my daughter needed for her costume in her high school version of Les Miserable. It was the perfect length and well made. It certainly saved me time and money and since I am not a great sewer it was perfect. It did not cost all that much and arrived relatively quickly.

This hat is of sturdy construction, is fitted to your head and looks snappy into the bargain.

Not only is the hat fantastic but the shipping is almost immediate and the customer service is both helpful and friendly.

Great quality and detail have gone into this parasol. I purchased it for my daughter, a very proper young woman, and she adores it. The wooden handle is proper for this parasol, though not as strong as other materials. It is not a toy, but the right accessory for young women to use as needed.

This vest is slightly different in person from how it's pictured - Gentleman's Emporium must have changed manufacturers after the pictures for the website were taken. Although the fabric itself is of the same cut as the other deep-necked shawl-lapel vests, this vest has only 4 buttons, not 5. The fabric has more of a golden quality than comes through in the photos, and is fairly thin. Still, I love it - I wore this vest under a tailcoat and it looked smashing!

The material is beautiful, but quite heavy. I had been concerned that I wouldn't fill out a vest of this cut very well (I'm quite thin, and bought a small) but as it turns out the cut of this vest is very flattering! I'm very satisfied with this vest.

I bought 3 pair of these goggles at the very last minute for a 19th c. period show and the Emporium guys immediately rushed them out. Unfortunately, I wasn't too thrilled with the quality of the goggles (they were made in China and folded up- something I hadn't realized), and the director did not like them so I had to do a return. The return process was simple and the money was refunded immediately. I was very pleased with the experience and would not hesitate to consider Emporium for future purchases.

Was pleasantly surprised the waist was elastic.I usually wear a medium and this fit fine in a medium.The neckline was a little low for me so a sports bra worked well underneath. It is great in the water and definitely made a hit at the beach. This is a fun item that you can wear as a cover-up or as your actual bathing suit. Add a pair of bloomers underneath and you will be the talk of the beach.

This shirt is perfect for my SteamSmith costume. Styling is just right. Also, very well made.Fabric is durable and on the heavy side, so the shirt is a little warmer than I had expected. I will be buying another shirt from Gentlemens Emporium in a lighter weight fabric to give me costume options for warmer and cooler weather.

I thought this was pretty nice pocket watch for a really reasonable price, it keeps time well enough although the one thing I think would make it a lot better if it came with a t-bar chain so I could attach it to my waistcoat, I had to buy a t-bar chain separately. Overall I would def recommend this watch.

A bit of an actor who likes to slip back in time, I'm building a boattail car with a wood body, roaring 20's style, but with more.....pazzaz. I can hardly wait to motor down country lanes wearing it.

I wanted a period correct boot for fur trade era re-enactment (Black Powder shootin' Hawk n knife throwin', primitive camping). I was pleased with my purchase. I was worried 'cause of my big flat feet, the salesman (phone order) said, just take out the insole inserts and they'll be fine, and right he was! They fit as well as any other boot I own and are comfortable. They get noticed and compliments are paid. RON-DEE-VOO!

My daughter was on a mission to find a monocle for a costume but it needed to be actually placeable on the eye and seen through and this could do neither. It is to big to fit into an eye socket and then do that squinting thing that holds it in place and the glass is not clear so so it can't be seen through.It didn't fit her needs but if someone wanted one just as a prop that hangs and looks real it would be just fine! we returned with no problems and customer service, in terms of fast shipping and prompt credit for the return was fantastic!

The invitation had arrived in the mail. A beach party along the seaside. The host name remained blank, but my hopes did not. For I had a feeling that William Tinsley was recruiting me for a manly game of tug-o-war or perhaps simply wanted to have a laugh as we ate sherbet in the surf. It had been three years since we last spoke, but I knew that he would recognized me in my traditional green and white swim wear... and I would recognize him with his long cane and hat. I came to find that the party was in honor of his dear uncle Lancaster, who had passed at the age of 102, and left him a size-able portion of land along the Adirondacks. He wished that I might lend him some prospecting equipment, since Robert Swarthmore had gone missing in search for black gold. I advised against a needless journey, but William remained insistent of striking gold. So, we cheered a hearty goodbye over a Shirley Temple, and William left his party and made his way down the surf. I wish my good friend the best of luck, and I do so as always in style in my green and white bathing suit. God speed, William Tinsley!

I even wore them to work hidden under my slacks to break them in before the first event I wore them to. I will be getting a second pair in another color. I have huge problems wearing heels, and I can wear these boot & I got so many complements on them!

The vest fits good and I really like the color, but the buttons are a problem. I have had Scully leather vests before and they seem to have this inherant problem with the buttons, the thread comes undone and the buttons will fall off. This time the first time I wore it the button almost came off. I had to go to a seamstress and have all the buttons re-inforced.

Even though the back is also leather and warm against a chair, driving, etc., I still enjoy. Did not want a fabric back as a personal decision. Thanks for listening. Pete

Excellent shirt, fit right and priced right. Every time, and I DO mean each and every time, I wear it, people, including outright strangers on the street, stop me and tell me how much the admire the shirt. They always ask where I bought it and I always proudly tell them.

My wife bought this for me to use in cowboy shooting competition. I was very Please with the quality of the leather and craftsmanship. It has not only served me well in cowboy shooting but is very comfortable while mounted on horseback.I expect many good years of service in cowboy shooting and while riding in the mountains of Northern California.

What a surprise, the trousers were much better quality than expected, they are perfect in every way. They look exactly like what you would expect of the era they represent yet nice enough to wear out to dinner. I wear these type of clothes on a day to day basis, I have the west running in my blood and these pants are a welcome addition to my wardrobe.

I was doing a search for a specific style of vest on the web, when I came across the Historical Emporium website. I was impressed with the catalog of products, as well as the numerous pictures associated with each. When I received my purchase, I was very satisfied with it. I had a follow-up inquiry about the vest, and the representative that I spoke to was very helpful and forthcoming.

I was very pleased with the high quality of the product, as other similar holsters elsewhere were 4 to 5 times the cost. It was also a pleasure doing business here.

I found this product to be represented poorly in the description on the Website. Even taking into consideration the oversize nature of the coats and ordering smaller sizes they were way too big. They were too large in the chest and too long in the body for the smaller sizes that I ordered. Even the tall actors wearing the coats looked like dwarves because they were so long.

I am very pleased with the coat. The fabric is top notch and hangs very well. The coat is fully lined and very comfortable. I had to have the sleeves altered, other than that a very good fit right out of the box. If you want that old west look, buy one of these coats. I guarantee when you walk down the street wearing one of these, your going to turn a head or two. Best of all it's made in the good old USA.

This product was one of the worst items I have bought. The vest has lost most of the buttons and when put back on they still continue to fall off because of the buttoms themselves. They have such sharp edges that they cut the material used and fall off again. The vest is now full of needle marks after having to redo the buttoms so mamy times.

These are dificult items to come by. Originals are scarce and usually in much too small sizes. I would like to see these made in linen, though that would raise the price. I would also like to see more precise sizing. I still feel the collars are quite nice and are very comfortable, which most originals are not. I am glad that you make them available.

This ascot was purchased as a complement to my future husbands cream suit for our wedding. Damask is a theme, so the paisley is similar and subtle enough. He will look very dashing and has already been practicing the multiple ways to tie an ascot. Great quality and we received our order very quickly. Thank you.

The blouse is lovely, well-made, and fits very well. It's a bit more elaborate than it appears in the picture, so I'm not getting quite so much use for work out of it as I'd hoped, but I wore it to a party and got many compliments. The front and back lacings mean the fit can be customized perfectly. Ideal for a steampunk outfit.

The leather is real suede and soft to the touch and has a delightful smell. The cut of the vest is very flattering. You will not be sorry if you purchase this vest.

This is not a work vest. Rather, a nicer go-to-town vest. The leather is great quality, excellent craftsmanship and very nicely shaped. I enjoy a leather vest for many reasons. This one is as fine as any I have ever tried, wore, or examined.

Your selection is reasonably large, and the material aesthetics as well as the clothing cuts are excellent (or at least appear so from your websirte). Also, your website is reasonbly well put-together. The description of what is required for body measurements was quite accurate (the trousers fit perfectly).
