Mad Scientist Howie Lab Coat - White


Item: 004477



A Historical Emporium Exclusive!

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, sewn with polyester thread. 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.

The Lab Rat
I was looking for a legitimate Mad Scientist outfit for a cosplay photoshoot and You guys did not disappoint. Great outfit for my character. I purchased the lab coat and the black gauntlet gloves. It was well received.

As represented
Feels & looks very authentic. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is there was no outside pocket. But they didn't say that it would have one and the picture clearly shows no pocket.

I was worried that the (small size) bad boy wasn't going to fit, seeing as how I am a 5'4" teenage girl. HOWEVER! It went to just about my ankles/wrists, which is SPECTACULAR. The adjustment strap on the back was a huge plus, too. The fabric is thick, heavy, and comfortable and the buttons and collar are sturdy. It even flows in the wind in the right conditions! It's perfect for contemplating the complexities of human consciousness in. It's perfect for lamenting and plotting your revenge against the scientific community that ostracized you for your questionable morals in. Bottom line: it's perfect. As one (1) mad scientist obsessed individual, I can confirm this lab coat is absolutely a new favorite comfort item!!!!!! On a side note, it arrived in 4 days rather than the expected 12, which I could not be happier about! Excellent service, excellent item.... Excellent... Magnificent.... All according to plan....!

Mad Scientist Howie Lab Coat - White
I bought this for my Halloween costume but it didn't fit. I bought the large & it was too big but the small was too small. The large fit around my bust but everywhere else it was too big. Too bad, that would have been a great costume for work....

good fit
I ordered a small because the dimensions indicated that was the right size for me. It was long, but that is easily fixed. At that price, I was concerned the fabric might be see-through, but it good quality and workmanship. Could not be happier.

Great Coat, Waist a bit small :(
So this is my second clothing purchase for my husband from Historical Emporium and, just like last time, the materials are heavy duty and solid. This is something you can wear for many years, not just on Halloween. Unfortunately, just like last time, it is a bit snug in the tummy. He has a 54" waist and I got the 3x/4x which should have worked since the size chart says it should fit chest/torso up to 58". It will button, but a few of the buttons directly on the widest part of his tummy are straining and a little uncomfortable. He will still use it, but may leave a few buttons undone for comfort. Lastly, as seems to be usual with Historical Emporium, it was a bit long. I hemmed the arms and bottom hem and it looks great now, but that is something that may need doing unless you are tall.

Awesome Lab Coat
This coat is made of high quality heavy material, it is comfortable, and, in mad scientist circles, quite stylish!

Good product, odd sizing
This is a quality product, but you need more fidelity in your sizing. I ordered the "3X/4X" size, because I was concerned that something labeled "XL/2X" would be too small. I mean an XL and a 2X are quite different is size. The 3X/4X arrived, and it was gigantic. I mean, the thing was a tent. So I returned it and ordered the XL/2X... Too small. That's just silly, frankly.

Howie Lab Coat size Large
Arrived early, good quality, not too thin. Only thing is it’s a little long for my 5’9” height. I love the coat, it will make a wonderful Dr Horrible lab coat.

Love this coat. I had one a while back from this site, but I accidentally shrunk it trying to wash it, and donated it to a theater show I was in. I just bought a new one, and it's the same high quality as my old one. I don't think I can trust any other supplier. It's durable and made of sturdy fabric. How ever, working in a stuffy haunted house will make you sweat with this thing on.

On the fence? Its worth it.
I've used this for a couple cosplays. It is expensive, but the quality of the material is worth it. I absolutely love this thing! If you don't mind paying good money for good quality, i recommend this. It went perfect for my Junkenstein (Overwatch) cosplay.

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
