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.

It fits the 3x/4x is true its true. Being a big person it's always a crap shoot when ordering something like this when I go to the event I'll take some photos. Extremely happy.

Buy no others!
You tired of the back and forth with amazon. Poor quality, runing late, and lack of durability. These is the answer. It has a great thickness balanced well with the wieght . I followed the instructions on sizing and it fits perfectly. Buy these guy you will not regret it, don't be fooled buy the others. This one is for keeps.

Amazing quality and fits wonderfully!
The quality of the coat is well worth the money payed for it. It's made from good material and you can tell this isn't some crappy costume you would buy at a store. I bought a size small and thought that even then it might be a bit too big for me but it fit great, although a little long (seeing as I'm only 5'4"/female) it's not an issue. If you are looking for something like this I definitely recommend buying it from this seller, you wont be disappointed and will most likely be buying something that will last a long time and make many awesome memories no matter what occasions you dress up to.

Great Coat
This is a fabulous item. This is the second version of this coat I have purchased. This is for a plague doctor. I also own a white version to be a mad (well, slightly peeved) scientist. Both fit wonderfully and are comfortable to wear for an extended time. The only negative is the buttons can be a little difficult to work sometimes due to placement. It is a great purchase that will last many years (my white coat is around 5 years old and in near-perfect shape).

It's a Big Coat (For You)
Superb quality fabric and excellently adhered buttons. It is indeed larger than expected and sizing down is a good idea. This is a commercial-quality coat that has so far done a fantastic job of repelling the blood and fluids of political prisoners and coronavirus-infected degenerates.

Well-made versatility
Do not confuse this with halloween costume crap - it will stand up to close scrutiny - all the buttons are working buttons. It is stage quality. Bought this for an Uncle Fester halloween costume for 2 reasons: it appeared to be well-made and it wasn't a monks robe (which every other dealer tried to pass off as Fester's coat). Alright, this wasn't going to be Fester's coat either, but it looked much closer than anything else I could find. It was perfect! I ordered a XXXL because I wanted to stuff a pillow under it and the fit was still a little loose - at 5' 10" the length was all the way to the floor without tripping over it. Add some makeup and a trick light bulb and, poof - Uncle Fester! Helps to start out with a bald head because skull caps are a pita. I also bought a pair of German made welder goggles with 3 different pairs of lens shades - only ones I could find that actually had metal rims, everything in the steam punk world was plastic. Take off the makeup, add the goggles and some wild hair (or not) and let the mad loose. The coat is made from a good cloth and stitched well so it should last for years, unless you really are a scientist, mad or otherwise, and expect to use it daily. I could see using this for a Mortician as well as the Uncle Fester and Mad Scientist costumes. I just ask myself, "What would Christopher Lloyd do with this coat?"

The best.
Really, no joke. It is almost too big which for me is a pleasant surprise, I ordered a size larger out of habit expecting to have to send it back for being too short, or not being able to put my arms through the sleeves, instead a well made and accurate sized garment arrived in record time. I am quite pleased.

Love this Lab Coat
I am a MS chemistry student in California and was looking to replace my cheap white lean coat for something more aligned with my personality. I wear this while teaching a general chemistry lab class for non-science undergraduate students. I have gotten a lot of really positive responses from colleagues and my students. The fitting is nice and the quality of the material is worth the price. I only wish that it had small slits in the sides at waist level so I could get into my pockets without having to flap open the front.

I was really impressed with the quality of the material, not mention how comfortable it is as well. This is a perfect coat for the mad scientist costume you want. I wore this to my local comic con and it went over way better than I imagined it would. My only nitpick was how long the coat was. I put it on and it went all the way down to almost a half inch from the floor. But fortunately, it was an easy alterations fix. Worth every penny for the mad scientist in anyone.
