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

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.

Top Notch
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.

Great coat
This is a great lightweight well made coat. As a shorter round guy the M/L fit me well with the only adjustment needed was the sleeves (stitch witchery fixed it). I actually used this as more of a dark wizard cloak and it worked well. I do wish it had pockets but very minor gripe as i was able to access my own short pockets underneath when needed. The lightweight is great for summer events. Delivery was fast.

it is a very nice nice material and not to thick
it is a very nice nice material and not to thick. i got the medium cause I read other reviews that said to get that for a size 42. it just barly fits me but that's ok cause I am losing weight. The look though is impeccable you will be surprised hwo good you look in it and I'm not a person to brag on myself. I do recommend wearing light clothes under it though

I love it and it looks great!
I love everything I've ever gotten from Historical Emporium, and this coat is no exception. It's durable, well-made, and designed to be comfortable for folks with a more generous figure. My wardrobe is slowly becoming all vintage/cowboy/steampunk because I can get good looking, good quality clothing here that fits and is comfortable to wear - usually for a lower price than ordinary clothes bought through some major outlets.

Love my coat
I purchased my Howie Lab Coat with the intention of using it as part of a Halloween costume. It is so comfortable that I sometimes just wear it around the house for fun.

Lab Coat Awesomeness
Absolutely loved this product, it arrived literally within a few days, and I used it for my historical tours here in Old Town San Diego as a mortician. It goes great with my leather steampunk belt bag that I got from here as well. Sadly when my car got broken into 2 days ago, this coat was stolen. I will definitely be getting another one as soon as I can. So if car thieves would rather have this coat than my GPS device, then I'm sure you'd like it too.

As described. Perfect for my scientist from Metropolis costume. Only thing I did was to "age" it.

Mad science at its best
I LOVE this coat. This is going to be great for times when I want to unleash my evil mad scientist side of me. It radiates a sexy kind of sinister genius all throughout. I like that the buttons go from the mid section all the way to the top of the neck. I really like the look of it on me when it's all buttoned up from the far right side along the shoulder to the neck. My only complaint is that there are no pockets on this coat. However, that can be easily accommodated with a shoulder bag or better yet, a utility belt of some sort. I'm even thinking this might be a conversation piece at Rocky Horror screenings. Thank you HE.
