Runs big, but excellent quality!

Very Nice!
I go to a lot of opera and symphony concerts, at least I did before COVID. It is a fine garment, but you will get a few looks and maybe some comments. I'm okay with that. The quality is good, even if the garment is not as heavy as some fine coats - especially the lining is a bit thin. That is a function of the price, which is inexpensive for this kind of coat. It is okay for three seasons (in Calgary Canada) and I've actually got the herringbone version for colder weather. The fit is great for me - xl-2x for me at 6'2" and 250 lbs. - I can wear it with a waistcoat or with a full dress coat. I love dressing in Victorian style - if you are okay with being noticed, this is the coat for you!

Great coat. Great fit
I'm a little leery of ordering clothing online. I'm a big guy and have trouble getting things to fit, especially outerwear. I've wanted a long coat for a long time, but could never find one in my size. When I ordered the Inverness coat, my main thought was "Please let it fit" When I opened the box and examined the coat, I was impressed with the quality of the materials and construction, this is garment that could last a lifetime. Then I tried it on. Not only did it fit, but it was roomy enough to wear a full suit underneath, as I imagine a gentleman of the time would do. I am 100% satisfied with this item and would gladly recommend it to anyone.

This coat is world-class. It is so elegant. The one problem I had was the lining. Right out of the box it ripped, and I had to sew it. However, my impression is that the coat is stunning. One word of advice, order a size smaller than you normally wear, it is big!

A hit on the first night
I wore this coat to Phantom of the Opera in New York, and it fit perfectly with the venue and the event (it's the oldest show on Broadway...dress up). The quality has inspired me to purchase from Historical Emporium again.

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.

Inverness coat
The coat is beautiful! The quality is excellent. The fit is generous and long, just right for me and my large frame. The coat is fully lined. The workmanship is excellent. Thank you Historical Emporium.

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!
