Sizing a bit off
I love the products offered here at the Emporium, and have had great success with most of my (albeit still small) historical wardrobe fitting quite well. However, with this particular coat, my chest size (36R) is not available, so I got the smallest size (only a inch or so larger), which should have the correct sleeve length. Unfortunately, the sleeves reach past my wrist to my knuckles when my arms hang down. Having already anticipated possibly having the chest taken in, it is not too frustrating to have to add the sleeves to the list, though it will increase the overall cost and be a while before I can afford it. Still, I had hoped to wear it soon after receiving it, which I may do, though it shall not look as good. Also, it is heavier than I had expected, so it will definitely not be summer wear for me where I currently live. All in all, a very handsome coat, distinctive and historical to boot. I am ready to become Mr. Bingley or Albert Mondego.

Way cool!
Now, THIS is a coat!! A real 18-19th century look here, but man, it is cool! Am looking forward to the cooler weather and maybe a Holiday party or two to break it out. Should stop a few clocks (lol)!

This was the last of the items that I unwrapped, keeping the best for last. And best it was, I have never seen a greater Coat! I always wanted a tailcoat since I was a child, but somehow did not like the standard tails they usually wear for concerts. This one is just perfect, and the fit is good. Wearing this tailcoat you WILL draw attention from EVERYBODY around, even if they don't look curious. The price is such a great deal that I would order another one, if I didn't have a number of other coats from Historical Emporium on my whish list.

a quality tailcoat
Well worth the money, this tailcoat fits snug and is dazzling to look at. The material felt great as well. Overall, this is a superb piece of gentleman's clothing that can be worn to any formal occasion, whether it be a ball, opera, or whatever. I would recommend this site to anyone who needs to get their gentleman's accessory and clothing fix satisfied. It's a pure quality product.

Regency Tailcoat - Black with Velvet Trim
Very nice, but too small for a larger man. something of this sort may have to be tailored if you are of an odd size. Much too tight in the shoulders for me even the tapestry tailcoat in 3X was too small though. Having said that this does not reflect poorly on the product which I am sure I would have been very happy with.

Looks real sharp
It fits really well, maybe only the arms a tad long. Perfect for a Mr. Darcy outfit, even if it's not 100% period.

Better than I thought!
I must say, I like this much better "in person" than I expected. I was dubious about the pointed front and, like the Sovereign tailcoat, the collar and lapels are completely inaccurate for the period impression. However, in black, the lack of contrast helps to disguise the glaring fault! The styling of the tails are excellent, really sexy from the back! The "small" size fit my husband well, even though according to the size chart, he should've been a medium. Slim, broad chested guys might want to take note. I thought I might want to change out the buttons for plainer fabric covered ones, but the silver is growing on me. Quite a nice choice for an off-the-rack coat in a pinch.

excelllent products and service after intial...
Just as advertised. I bought a complete costume and after some (not inconsiderable) efforts to deal with the new customer security verification was happy with the product! Word to the wise, if your a new customer... choose to check your credit card account via phone or online and use that to verify your id, I had a few difficulties that delayed things a few days due to recent changes in address, but customer service was decent in working through things particularly via phone.

Very nice
This is the center piece to my steampunk outfit for our wedding in the fall. This is doubling as my Texas Ren Fest outfit also. I am a slender guy: 6'2" 140. I bought a medium because of my long arms even though I knew the chest was going to be super big. Took this and other GE items to my tailor. He is going to have some difficulty tailoring it because apparently there are no tradition seams under the arms in order to take in the torso. So he is not sure how he will make it smaller but he seems to think it will be possible. The material is fabulous and the price is well worth it. I would like to see the buttons a little more secure however that is a personal preference and does not reflect the truth quality of the coat. The two small pockets in the back are a plus.

Regency Tailcoat Review
A fine garment, very well made and of an excellent sizing for me. Buttons are only for display purposes, but are well made, and well connected. Mine was a size L and it fit my 6ft 3" tall midsize frame excellently. Price was very reasonable for the quality of the garment.

I bought this tailcoat for my son and husband as we are part of an English Country dance group for a local museum. The coat is of excellent quality; the sizing was spot on - no alterations will be needed. The coats were delivered extremely quickly and packed well - out of the box and on the backs with no fuss! I am extremely pleased with my purchase and highly recommend both the tailcoat and Historical Emporium for its service.

regency tailcoat is fantastic!
I love this item. The fit is true to size, and the quality is suberb. The buttons/snaps are also very nice. I know this is a pricey item, but it is well worth the expense.
