CHOOSE YOUR SIZE 


Tall, dark and mysterious, our Charcoal Callahan Frock Coat creates an enigmatic image for the 19th century gentleman. A shadowy yet still stylish substitute for black, our men’s jacket will keep folks whispering about your reputation.

Before the shorter, boxy jacket of the “sack” suit (still being worn today), the frock coat was the standard silhouette for men. Longer and seamed at the waist, our vintage-look coat features charcoal gray fabric with a hint of blue hue, matching fabric covered buttons, a notched lapel and intricate detailing on the back. Necessities can be kept at hand in the interior breast pocket. However, should you encounter an unsavory character in some back alley or less-traveled road, your valuables will stay hidden in two cleverly tucked-away tail pockets. Part of our Callahan collection.

Fabric is 72% cotton, 20% polyester, and 8% rayon with a full acetate lining. Imported. Dry Clean Only. Available in sizes 36 - 54 and 38L-54L for those that need extra length. Also available in a double breasted style.

Note: although this fabric appears to be a solid color at a distance, you will see slight color variations and speckling in the threads when viewed up close. Please see the fabric closeup image for an example.

Sizing Notes
Our coats are made with typical American sizing, meaning your chest measurement (in inches) is the size you should choose.
To measure your chest: Raise your arms slightly and measure just under your arms. Be sure to cross over the shoulder blades and the fullest part of the chest. If your belly measures larger than your chest, use your belly measurement for coat size.
Longs: If indicated in the selection list (e.g. 46L,) long sizes may also be available. Longs are approximately 2" longer in the back and sleeves.

Bad Cut
I wanted to love this coat, but the cut was bad. Too much extra material in the upper chest. You would have to be a weight lifter with a big chest and slim waist for this to fit properly. I returned this and got a cutaway coat instead which does fit better. But paying shipping three ways made it a much more expensive purchase. I would order a different frock coat, but won't take the chance. I'll look local where I can try things on ahead of time.

SEEN ON OLD PHOTOS
The coat was lightweight and well constructed. It fit nicely, and I intend to use it as my "preacher's coat" for many occasions.

Great frock coat
This is a great frock coat. I like the way it fits and looks. The material, though cotton, is heavy. I thought it would be much more lightweight for the summer which is why I got the cotton instead of wool. It still deserves 5 stars..

Love the coat
I wore the coat to church the Sunday after receiving it and I got a lot of compliments from members of the church. It fit well and it looks sharp. I would definitely recommend this coat and Historical Emporium to my friends.

Good Looking Frock Coat
My husband likes the coat and fits well although not like a fitted suit coat. It is a little puffy for him on his chest near the the underarms. Looks very stylish and it will be warn on Burns night and at the Edwardian Ball.

Awesome outfit!
I got this coat, along with the Callahan Trousers and Vest, a few days ago. As soon as I opened the box, I could see the quality was superb! I tried it on, and it fit great! The trousers are being hemmed now, and I am looking forward to wearing it out the first time. I am a War Between The States re-enactor, and I have long admired the styles of the late 19th century. My wife has urged me to get a new suit for when occasions arise to wear a suit. This was my choice, and my wife loves it! She'll be buying something from you soon! Top quality and great service! A special thank you to Marie for helping me decide on this suit and which ties to go with it!
