Sizing Notes
Our coats are made with typical American sizing, meaning your chest measurement (in inches) is the size you should choose.
To measure your chest: Raise your arms slightly and measure just under your arms. Be sure to cross over the shoulder blades and the fullest part of the chest. If your belly measures larger than your chest, use your belly measurement for coat size.
Longs: If indicated in the selection list (e.g. 46L,) long sizes may also be available. Longs are approximately 2" longer in the back and sleeves.

Just what I needed
The frock coat was a 4 button replace for the 2 button I originally ordered. The process was easy and fast. Oh and the fit was perfect

The perfect 1860 vintage frock coat. I am adding silk facings to the lapels.

only suitable for costume use
Looks OK for a costume, but is not especially well-cut. It's probably the first part of my Victorian costume I would upgrade if I decided to spend more on it.

good coat
I was a little lighter than I wanted and I didn't care foe the feel of the material. Exchanged it for the Highlander.

Callahan Frock Coat - Black
I ordered this frock coat for a theatrical production. Although a bit lighter weight fabric than I was anticipating, I'm happy with the overall look of the coat, and I'm sure it will do well for our show. I'm happy with my purchase.

Callahan Frock Coat and String Tie
The coat arrived in a very timely manner and in excellent condition. I have worn it and the string tie to the Dickens Christmas Faire in South San Francisco on December 3rd and to the Nevada City Victorian Christmas on December 4th. I would definitely do business with the Historical Emporium again.

Looks Sharp
A great looking coat. Would have preferred, maybe, a higher wool content. But it's still a nice lookin' coat. Buyers should know that whatever the size they order, they will likely have to have it tailored to fit 'em "just right" - as I did. But if you're willing to bear that added expense, the coat will most definitely set you apart! Am lookin' to purchase the grey one next year!

So much finer than I expected, this coat's quality and fit exceed anything I'd hoped for. Whatever persona you wish to assume; from banker to gambler, preacher to outlaw, this frock coat fits the bill perfectly. Very finely tailored and absolutely true to size; it fits as though it were Saville Row bespoke. And not too heavy, it's perfect for all-season wear. Simply fabulous!

Nice, but not great
With several upcoming historical functions, I decided to purchase a full outfit instead of renting again. The Callahan frock coat, vest and pants really matched the look I was after. I wasn't disappointed at the style when I received them, but I was less than impressed with the material. It's thin enough to read through, and because of this the drape of the coat and pants suffers. I'm also concerned with the wear and tear on the coat and pants. It's unfair of me to judge that since I've only worn them to check the fit, and have yet to wear them out, but I feel as if I need to be very careful with them. Time will tell, I suppose. BTW, it probably won't surprise anyone to these are made in China. Why not? It allows sellers to make a good profit. And just because something's made in China doesn't necessarily make it bad. The workmanship is fine, equal to what you'd find in most inexpensive clothes. Bottom line: I have a bit of buyer's remorse at spending north of $300 for a coat, vest, pants, and a couple of ties that I'm not certain will last. Still, unless you have something custom made at a much MUCH higher price (I know, I looked pretty extensively) this is the probably the best way to achieve a period look.

Good Idea, Bad Execution
This was just the coat I was looking for at just the right price. Boy was i disappointed when the package arrived. The fabric and sewing were OK at the price but the fit and patterns were terrible. I took the coat to a tailor to see if alterations would improve it and he wondered if I had purchased the coat used. He called it junk. Specifically the shoulders were too wide, the chest was way loose, the waist was too small and the collar did not fit at the shoulders. This coat is not even useful as a costume. Don't buy it. The coat was returned and my money was promptly and politely refunded.
