Splatters, spills and stains, oh my! Our Mad Scientist Lab Coat offers full-length protection for so many of those pesky occupational hazards. The go-to garb for surgeons, apothecaries, morticians and other hands-on men of science in the 19th century.

In addition to long-sleeves and a full-length cut, our classic unlined "Howie" style lab coat features an asymmetrical front panel, bold black buttons and a reinforced high-stand collar all create a nearly impenetrable barrier for your safety. Adjuster strap in back for a proper fit.

Well made from a thick 100% cotton twill. Buttons and buttonholes have reinforced stitching for long service.

Imported. Machine wash cold, line dry. Available in four sizes: S, M/L, XL/2X, and 3X/4X

This style is offered in several colors. Note: while this garment is well made of quality materials, it is meant for long-wearing fun and durable performing arts use. It is not recommended nor specified for use as a safety garment.

First off, perceptional internet research exhibits that "The Historical Emporium" carries the most authentic old fashioned apparel products. The Historical Emporium had my "Mad Scientist Howie Lab Coat" shipped the next morning, and almost immediately provided a shipping tracking number. 100% The Lab Coat itself is 99% what I expected. I like that it is long- similar to a trench-coat. However the buttons are NOT made of metal like stated in the item description on the website, and my hypothesis is that the neck collar is NOT "reinforced". My conclusion is that I am 99% satisfied, I would have loved metal buttons and a more reinforced neck collar. I do appreciate the Historical Emporium and will continue to still do business. I also look forward to submitting customer product photos in regard to the monthly contest. Cordially, MaD JaKe

Looks and feels great, fits well
The sleeves were a little long, but then, I'm 5' 7". It fit perfectly everywhere else, and I just rolled the sleeves up a bit. When I get time I may have them hemmed up a bit. But since I was wearing the elbow-length industrial gauntlets over it, the sleeves weren't a problem. This thing looks terrific - I may have to buy them in other colors, but when you wear the white one everyone immediately knows you're a scientist/doctor (I got it for a steampunk mad scientist costume). It's a fairly heavy material, but it's loose enough for good airflow, and I didn't get overheated in it. It was exactly what I needed and wanted, and my costume was quite popular. Thanks!

Great Lab Coat
This is a great quality costume lab coat for the money. It isn't perfect but it is the best I have found for less than $200. The fabric is quite heavy and nice, flows well, and should be easy to age. My only real complaint is the collar is not tight enough when buttoned and flares out like a cone instead of standing up vertically. I will probably move the collar button to try to fix that. The sleeves are big and flared as shown in the photos but that isn't a major issue. The coat does run big so be careful with the sizing. I am a 42 and the M/Lg coat is big on me. This will be perfect for a Dr. Vannacutt House on Haunted Hill party!

Couldn't be happier
I am 5'9 and around 205 lbs. The L/XL coat was too large and so I returned it for the M/L which fits perfect. I had zero trouble making the return and the turn-around time was less than a full week from return shipping to receiving the replacement.

I ordered this for Halloween. It was a hit. Everywhere I went people loved it. Very well made. The material is a nice weight. I got the M/L. I am 6'0" 180 pounds. I took the tightest button adjustment and it fits great.

Excellent Quality!!
This costume is excellent in quality! Real buttons, 100% cotton, machine washable, very well sewn. I'm 5'8" and the M/L fits me fine. If you're bigger, get the XXL.

Everything about buying this item was awesome, from the great person I spoke with on the phone, to the speedy delivery that exceeded expectations. The lab coat itself is beyond great! I bought it for a costume contest at work, and would have won, but my rival had better legs. Seriously, if I was an actual mad scientist, I couldn't ask for a better lab coat, the quality is that good. It's not just some flimsy item that would look good on stage, the material, construction, and workmanship are all excellent.

Best Lab Coat
This is the best period lab coat I've found. It's easy to add accessories on to it. It was also easy to hem.
