Velvet Tailcoat - Black

Sizing needs fixin

Item: 003355



She made an entrance coming . . . and going in our black Velvet Tailcoat, everyone noticed her sensational 19th century style. A fiercely feminine take on the gentlemenís version of a cutaway coat with tails, this dramatic number drapes from the waist down with volumes of plush fabric.

The hem is longer in the back (approximately 36-inches) with a shorter curved front. The sleeves feature striking pointed cuffs and decorative silver-tone knob buttons decorate the lapels with one functional button fastening in the center.

Fashioned with a shell of 100% polyester velvet and a lining of 100% polyester taffeta. Imported. Dry clean or hand wash in cold water, line dry. Available in sizes S - 3X as well as plus size 18. Also offered in several colors.

PLEASE NOTE: This item runs small. Please verify your measurements and check the sizing chart. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Velvet Tailcoat

I ordered the Vivien Fishtail Skirt (Gray), Velvet Tailcoat, and Marcus Regency Shirt with Removable Jabot - White. I was looking for a formal outfit for an awards show, which was out of the ordinary, and these 3 items were perfect! When I dress formally, I lean towards metro-sexual, so this long skirt with this shirt and velvet jacket was both sexy and metro. I received many "amazing" "fabulous" "gorgeous" compliments from others at the show. I ordered all 3 on a two-day shipping, and in fact received my items two days after I ordered online, which is the first time I have ever received items within 2 days. Sizing was correct to the size chart. I am going to wear this jacket more often.

Fit Issues
I think the coat seemed nice, except I could not actually get it on because the sleeves were extremely small compared to the rest of the garment. I called into Customer Service - which was EXCELLENT - they went into the warehouse and measured different sizes for me only to determine that the sleeves only got bigger by 1/2 inch total even though we looked at every size available, including the very largest size available, even a 3X. Additionally, the jacket arrived with a very strange smell, but I presume that came from the manufacturer.

Velvet Tailcoat
This tailcoat is so gorgeous I'll wear it to many occasions. Just make sure to carefully read the label, it 100% polyester. If it was made from velveteen with satin lining I would given it 5 stars.

Velvet Tailcoat
I was very Happy with the quality and look of this Coat. The size chart said to go up one size when ordering and I'm glad I did. The coat does run one size smaller. This coat is a brush velveteen look and I am using this coat for a Steampunk Vampire look. You will be Happy if you purchase this Coat from the Historical Emporium. This is my second purchase threw this site and have been happy with both products.

A favorite
Along with the black touring hat, this was my favorite purchase. It does run small, but looks really really good and can also be worn for contemporary events. Great quality. I couldn't be happier.

I couldn't believe how well made this garment was for the low price I paid. It's fully lined and the construction is solid. I was lucky enough to have it be a perfect fit for me, and my ruffle necked and cuffed blouse was a perfect coordinate for this elegant piece.

This Velvet Tailcoat is very nicely made and the fabric is wonderful. The sizing is a bit off tho, I purchased an 18 which is for a 46" bust, I am a 44" and this was tight on me. I reluctantly had to return it as I knew I wouldn't wear something that was uncomfortable. This coat would be perfect with any Steampunk or Victorian outfit. I have bought from Historical Emporium before and I will again.

Amazing Quality
I think I was expecting a halloween-type jacket that looks good but had a limited shelf-life for use. The quality of this coat is outstanding! The fit is perfect and this coat is more than a costume. It's a heirloom.

I orded this jacket with the other reviews I read in mind. Everyone said that they found it fit smaller then what the sizing chart said, so best to order a size bigger then you would. When I received the item I was extremely surprised to find that it fit into a small USPS box that weighed no more then a feather. Actually when we received it we thought it was my boyfriends feathered wings for his costume. Much to my surprise it was actually the jacket. It is quite a beautiful jacket, very thin, so not what I was expecting. I put it on and could not believe how small it fit. I went off the sizing chart provided then went up a size and it was still too small. I'm not a skinny minnie by any means but I'm not on the flip side either...I'm average. When I held it up for my boyfriend to check out he asked me if they sent me a Small by mistake. I really do think that your sizing needs to be looked at especially since every review has made the same comment. I ordered an XL and it was by no means and XL. Unfortunately due to time constraints and my ego I have to return the item for a full refund. Hopefully down the road I'll be able to retry this with better results.
