Mad Scientist Howie Lab Coat - Black

Item: 004618



An 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, metal 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.

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.

Great product
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.

A Beautiful Madness
I love this lab coat! Wonderful look and quality. I read other reviews that commented on the material not being heavier, but since I wore mine over a shirt and vest, I appreciated that the material was light and comfortable and not heavily weighted.

It's just wonderful!!!
So this was my first purchase in the historical emporium and I must say the costumer service is very helpful and the product is top knotch, it is worth the money if you ask me, I will use it as a part of my costume and later as a part of my usual or casual wear because it's just such an amazing coat! So guys lets be serious here, it's a wonderful coat! I would totally recommend it! And I will be shopping here again! Cheers!!!

Diabolically Well-Made
I received this coat at lightening speed and was entirely pleased with both its look and its quality. The fabric is strong, yet soft, and it moves beautifully. It washed very well, and the chemical smell (probably from the dying process or the plastic wrapping) washed out in one cold wash. I will likely re-stitch the buttons with upholstery thread, but I do that to all my/my husband's coats anyway.

I am very satisfied indeed, with my new black lab coat. In fact, I will be wearing it for our 10th wedding anniversary party this coming Halloween. LOL! yes, we got married on Halloween. We have been both very pleased with all that we have purchased from you over the years. Thank you.
