Availability: Clearance

Any forecast for 19th century style should feature our Winthrop Overcoat in black. The weighty, wool-feel construction of this distinguished choice in outerwear provides gentlemen a defense from the north wind and other inclement weather.

A velvet collar and buttons, three each at the cuffs and four at the front closure, add luxurious detailing to this coat. Falling past the knees (approximately 51” from back neck to hem), this full coat features three exterior pockets – two flap pockets at the waist and an inset pocket at the chest. One interior pocket provides secret storage space for valuables. Mobility not impaired thanks to a single vent in back.

Made from a blend of 65% wool, 25% nylon and 10% cashmere. Imported. Recommend Dry Clean Only. Available in sizes 36R-54R and 40L-52L.

Sizing Notes

This overcoat is meant to be worn over a dress coat, and so it is made very generous through the chest and shoulders.

Your chest measurement (in inches) is the size you should choose for proper overcoat sizing.

If you do not intend to wear it over another dress coat, then you will likely need one size smaller than you normally wear. Please note, however, that the shoulders will still be oversized as they are designed to fit over the shoulder padding of the regular dress coat.

Happy Husband
My husband is 6'8" and is thrilled with this topcoat! I honestly cannot thank you enough for providing such a quality product that he will enjoy for years to come. This was my first purchase with you and certainly will not be my last!

Excellent quality, excellent color, excellent material and texture. Perfect length below the knee, perfect length in the arms and generally what I have been looking for in a long time.

Good Experience
This was my first purchase from the Historical Emporium, and it was a good experience. The coat arrived within a few days of placing the order, faster than I had expected. It is hard to find this style of coat anymore, measuring 51 inches from collar to hem, a very formal appearance. The coat itself is very sharp, elegant and rich looking; I especially love the velvet collar. It's a wool overcoat with a silky interior lining, and as such it is not extremely warm, but adequate for the type of coat it is. The sizing was perfect. I normally wear a 48L in suits, but I ordered this in a 46R and couldn't ask for a better fit. I ordered it a size smaller taking their recommendation to order a size smaller since I'm not wearing a suit jacket under the coat. My experience with this product and transaction was such that I will look to Historical Emporium again when I need speciality clothing.

Excellent Topcoat
So difficult to find a great, full length, traditional topcoat today! This is truly a beauty. It is well made, very nice looking, and extremely versatile. A wonderful, finishing touch to a traditional suit, a formal tuxedo/tailcoat ensemble, and also pairs well with period attire for daytime or evening. Just fantastic!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

High class coat
Ordered this for my husband for Christmas and always a bit nervous buying clothes online where you can't really check it out first. No worries on this one! This is a great classic dress coat, heavyweight cashmere and wool blend that gives it an expensive feel and the velvet collar adds just a touch of retro class. Husband is a 42 and, as the site suggested, I ordered the next size down since he won't wear this over a suit jacket. Perfect fit! As an added bonus, delivery was quick and it got here in plenty of time for Christmas even when ordering it in the middle of December.

Absolutely fabulous
I love the older styles, and I love long coats in particular. Being 6 ft 5 in, and of a sizable firth makes shopping difficult. Not only was this in a big enough size (I ordered mine in a 52), but there was an "L" option as well. The coat fits great, and it even gives me an amazing silhouette. My only critique (not complaint) is that the buttons felt a little loose. Like they were ready to fall out, or they could easily be torn off. Not a big deal though. Nothing a little sewing can't fix.

Smaller sizes please!
I love the materials used on this Topcoat, it really oozes quality for a good price. I also wanted to adress an issue I have overall on this site, which was extra prevalent on this item (even with an undercoat). Us europeans aren't as large as you americans. I always buy your smallest size and I'm an average/small sized 22 yo male who drowns in every single one of them. A huge part of my life is your clothes since I wear them daily but I don't have the money to resize all of the clothes I buy here. I don't know how many international buyers you have but I daresay that I can't be the only one who suffers from this issue. Keep up the good work and a big thank you from Sweden!

Winter coat for a winter trip
No problem with signing on again to complete my survey either; means their technical support like their customer service, is d** good. Listen, see that "Winthrop Topcoat-in Black" in their line-up? If your reading this then you should get one. You will not be disappointed! As I said before, I wear 46L in suits and I purchased a 46L topcoat in black and it fit perfectly over my suit. Not to tight and not to loose. It was perfect. The customer care rep helped me all the way through. Much appreciated, because other people (1 company in particular) told me to buy my coat 1 size bigger. No, no, no...wasn't necessary with these guys. Moving on, I was concerned about shipping as I wanted to have my coat delivered to the hotel I was going to stay at. And to my surprise the coat arrived at the hotel 1 day ahead of schedule. When I got there I quickly checked into my room and tried it on. Perfect fit. Oh, did I mention that this east coast trip involved low 50 to 30 degree weather? The coat held up with no problem at all. I was most impressed with the style. Love the collar on the coat and it's sturdiness. Fellas, I'm not lying here, I don't work for the company. But since I'm picky about quality clothing, from under-wear to over-wear, inner-wear to outter-wear, I have to keep it real. Especially in these days and times when we all know this is not the time to be wasting money. You will not waste it here! Check'em out..........

Great topcoat
It was a pleasure to receive this Topcoat. As advertised, the coat is very well made and a great fit over my suit coats. I would recommend this to anyone that wants a classic / classy look that has a nostalgic look.
