How grandpa got dressed
This is my second shirt from Historical Emporium, but my first collarless. With it I bought three different collars (in the same size) and some collar studs. Quality-wise the shirt is well made and perfectly satisfactory. Ordering the right size without an actual fitting can be hit or miss, but the shirt fitted very well using the Emporium's guides to measure up. I didn't need the collar studs. The shirt has a button at back of the collar and comes with a stud at the front. Collar studs aren't visible under neck-wear, either; still, it's nice to have a set to my own taste and small items get lost, so spares are good. Wearing it - now there's a small learning curve! I hadn't had a detachable-collared shirt since the air force cadets (way back in the '60s) issued us lads mismatched WW2 uniform equipment, and mine never fitted! This shirt and the collar did, both me and each other. But how did grandpa get dressed without the help of a gentleman's gentleman? I found, after fruitless contortions, the easy way is to attach the collar by the back button, and one end of the collar to the collar stud, but leave the other end free. Pull the shirt on (it only unbuttons part way!) then do up the shirt and attached collar. Then add your period neck-wear. And a vest/waistcoat. A gentleman never wore his shirt fully exposed. Finally, wear it in public. Be ready for conversations. Possibly, ask Historical Emporium for a supply of their cards to hand out.

Love this shirt!
This shirt is the ONLY one (thus far) which possesses a Breast pocket! A feature many men require. Fits well and like the other shirts, the sleeves are just a little too long. I would Easily recommend this product to anyone!

Wonderful Dress Shirt
This is a wonderful dress shirt. The size runs very true and it is beautifully made. I purchased the wing-tipped collar to go with the shirt and it looks fantastic. I wear this shirt as part of my regular rotation of shirts I wear to work. I'm planning to purchase a variety of collars, so it will be like getting multiple shirts for the price of one. I love it!

Well crafted, great period cut
This resembles a good 19th century shirt that I use for daywear as well as formal evening attire. Had some sizing issues at the start, but Historical Emporium sent me a replacement and this time they fit better, just had my tailor have a slight hand over the collar. Since it was my first order I wasn't so familiar with the sizing table, but for my future orders I am now perfectly prepared. Will order from Historical Emporium again!

Fairchild Shirt Suggestion
The Fairchild shirt is a very fine product; however, although I take a large shirt in the chest and arm length area, my neck is not a large. I had to take the shirt to a tailor who sewed another button hole into the collar about a half inch in from the original. I would recommend that the manufacturer do the same, thus giving the customer the option of insuring a perfect fit. Since I ordered a large stand up collar for the shirt, the tailor did the same to the collar. All in all, everything worked out fine and it goes great with my swallow tail coat, vest and homburg. My lady friend and I should make a dashing couple at the San Diego Gas Lamp Gathering this September.

Great Choice!
Much to my surprise, I've come to the conclusion that if you only have one shirt in your Victorian kit, this is definitely the one to choose. With the detachable collars it's like having 4 shirts at bargan basement prices. The quality is definitely there, but it is the versatility that makes it stand out. A good example of this is when I indulge another Victorian fashion, a love of all things Scottish, and it's time to attend a "Burns Knicht," it fits right in with a bit of lace pined to the cuffs, and a jabard pined at the throat. Then with a change of hat, collar, tie and coat, it works for the piano recital of 1860's American music, held in a historic house of the era. I really recommend this shirt!

would have preferred a full-button front to placket and an ordinary pocket, not "western" type also had to change all buttons as needed plain white ones

This is the one shirt I thought would be the most versatile. The Fairchild looks nice and fits well. If the emporium offered shirts like the Fairchild in a variety of colors (like light blue, peach, striped etc.) combined with their attachable collars, this would be the best shirt ever. Right now it's only the best shirt.

Nice shirt
Arrived promptly in the UK, unfortunately, it didn't fit, but that's down to me not checking the sizes properly. No reflection on the service.
