Inverness Dress Coat
The Inverness Dress Coat is first rate: the quality, fabric and appearance are of a very high standard. The coat is ideal for any formal occasion or role play. The construction (sewing) is of exceptional high quality, the coat is fully lined and the fit is generous and long, just right for me and my large built. I have searched the internet for quite awhile now (Both in the UK & USA etc) and found Historical Emporium stands out as the front runner in the products it sells. This Inverness Coat is very expensive here in the UK, averaging over £1,000 plus, thus the Historical Emporiums Inverness Dress Coat offers great value for money, even when you add/include shipping, UK Handling & UK Import Tax to the final cost. I am delighted to be a customer of Historical Emporium and I am enjoying my product with the knowledge of investing in an exceptional high quality Inverness Coat. Thank you Historical Emporium and I look forward to further purchases.

Classy Protection
If you have to venture out in inclement weather for a formal event in a suit this is the coat for you. It splendidly covers even a tuxedo with tails and does so with a touch of old world genteel fashion without sacrificing serviceability. One recommendation I do make is that you get this garment rainproofed by your local dry cleaner.

Excellent Product/Excellent Service
I am a priest and I sometimes wear a cassock, usually on formal and semi-formal occasions. Rarely do overcoats look good with a cassock - in either length or style of cut. The Inverness Dress Coat is the answer! I'm shorter than the model, so the coat nearly covers the cassock. Also the style better melds with the cassock, especially with the cape. This is true of ecclesiastical head wear as well. The Inverness Dress Coat even makes a Canterbury Cap look good. After taking my measurements I submitted them with a question through the website. The response was quick and reliable. I bought the coat knowing the sleeves would have to be hemmed. Otherwise the fit around the chest and shoulders is perfect. The construction of the coat appears to be excellent. The only negative is that the lining for the pockets feels very thin. Not a place to store keys. Overall, though, I'm extremely pleased.

A little big, but not a problem
Greatly anticipated this product. I ordered the Small and it fit on the shoulders, but given I'm 5'6 with a 36 inch chest, it was a little big for the rest. Some hemming of the skirt, sleeves, and cape will do the trick though for a better fit. This will come in handy for the winter, as well as figures like Poe and Professor Fate.

Top quality yet very affordable!
Unbelievable quality! Every seam is hidden and the entire coat is well sewn, with no loose ends or messy oversewn stitching. The material is top quality with an excellent weight. The coat is versatile. Any man who sees this coat asks where we bought it!

Better than I anticipated
After months of looking, I took the leap of faith and ordered the jacket. When it arrived, I was immediately pleased with the quality and overall look of the jacket. Unfortunately, it was too large. This led me to place an order for a smaller size (holding on to the first one as a comparison before sending one back). NOTE: I ordered the M/L, but in the end I kept the S. As noted in the description they do come large, so a purchaser needs to take that into account. But, here's another thing that caught me off was much longer than I anticipated. Having looked at the images, I expected the coat to stop just below the knees; however, it went to the top of my feet (the M/L size). In speaking with their Customer Service Team, apparently the models used for the photographs are slightly taller than me. I was told they were well over 6 feet, and I am merely such, it did run long on me. Now, when I got the S size, it was slightly shorter on me, but still longer than I anticipated. BUT THIS DID NOT DISCOURAGE MY PURCHASE. This jacket is awesome! It feels and looks great. I just decided to take it to someone for a minor alteration on the length. Some people might not like that as an option, but let me tell you, the jacket is worth the alteration. I've not found one any place else that looked as great or was made to this quality. So, I was not about to send it back simply because I was vertically challenged (as compared to the models). That's been...

Better than I anticipated cont'd
the story of my life (and why I never played basketball), but you learn to make adjustments. So, shorter people might keep that fact in mind...the photos make it look shorter due to the height of the models. Outside of that one observation, I have nothing negative to say about the jacket, the service or the overall experience with my order. I am a VERY HAPPY CUSTOMER!

Sizing an issue
Following directions, you'll find that the coat is way too large. Customer service allowed me to return the coat for a smaller size and that fit across the shoulders, but the sleeves extended beyond my fingertips. I had the coat taken in along the torso (shoulders to waist) and the sleeves taken up about 5" and Scotch Guard (to assist in staining / water). I think it will look exceptional when it gets back. Quality looks good. Drape was a bit wide and I had it tapered as mentioned. Coat is fully lined. Pockets are a bit shallow for my taste and I would like to have an inside pocket, but overall I'm happy with the purchase.

Excellent coat!
Very, very happy with this purchase. The coat is the perfect weight and design. Be warned, though, as it is oversized. I wear a 40R jacket and ordered a M/L as per their guidelines. The coat was huge on me, so I returned it for a small. Even the small will have to be altered as the sleeves are too long for my long arms! That aside, this is a terrific coat and will lend authenticity to my Barnabas Collins costume!

Just like the pictures
This coat is of high quality and I look forward to wearing it. It was still quite warm as I put my different Victorian/Steampunk looks together, so the outfits were quite warm.

OMG ! This is simply the BEST
I've purchased similar coats in Chicago and London but OMG ! the Inverness coat I recently bought from you guys is by far superior in quality and detail. I expected a great looking coat, but was exceeded in my expectation. 1. Quality Awesome, 2. Size 100% true as listed, 3. Delivery on time. I most definitely will shop with "HISTORICAL EMPORIUM" again, and can't wait to wear this fine garment during the chilly fall Chicago evenings. I give you a ten star plus rating********** Thanks for being such an excellent American company. Peace and Love.

This coat came in a box full of AWESOMENESS!!!!!! I was looking for an overcoat as my old one just gave out from too many years of use, and after an extensive search online I found this company and this was just what I was looking for: length, cape, color, style, material and fit. I originally ordered a M/L and I was swimming in it, so I ordered a small and it is perfect. I have a 42 inch chest, 36 waist, 32 inseam, 35 arms and the small fits perfect without a coat or jacket underneath, and the M/L is perfect for a suit jacket underneath, though I will need to get the arms shortened by an inch or two on the M/L. I plan to wear this daily when the rains come and it is colder in Los Angeles (rare, but it does get cold here) and it is a nice addition to my formal wear as well as my business casual wear. If you unbutton the first button of the cape on each side, and button it to the next button under the collar it lays perfectly to display the satin lining over the shoulder. This coat is amazing and the workmanship (workwomansship, do not want to be sexist) is absolutely inspired. I even went back to the website and ordered the Victorian hat as an addition to wear as a Dickens character during the holidays. Well done Historical Emporium, I will shop here again 
