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.

This coat is more purple than the image shows, but boy does it stand out! Fit and finish are good, buttons secure; looks great paired with white, black, or denim

Perfect Plum
Beautiful coat that attracts a lot of attention. Sturdy construction, nice details and very elegant. Lightweight enough for warm summer afternoons and short programs/events - lengthy wear on hot summer days would be challenging. It is a coat after all so that is to be expected. Will be perfect for cooler fall weather and winter wear.

I was pleasantly surprised at the fine quality of the jacket. As a seamstress, I typically make all of my costumes. However, I ran out of time and ordered this jacket in a pinch. When it arrived via mail quite quickly, I saw what excellent craftsmanship went into it. The material was of super high quality and the cut of the jacket was exactly what I was looking for - historically accurate! Thank you for providing such a fine product and a beautiful jacket!

I thought this coat was made for me when I put it on for the first time. We live in the south, so I'm not really into coats, but this thing is awesome. Timeless, even though the look is a hundred years old, I can wear it with any of my existing modern clothes. I cannot stress enough, don't let the price of these garments fool you. They are real garments, not Halloween costumes. Great quality and good looking.

A Fine, Handsome Frock Coat
The Gillespie Brushed Cotton Frock Coat that I ordered is a handsome, manly, well constructed burgundy frock coat that is attractive and fits well. The color is striking, though not quite as bright a burgundy as seen on the website. Darker by two shades than the website image, the color is rich and eye-catching. The fabric is heavy, and feels as though it will be warm and durable. I’m proud to add it to my wardrobe of period attire.

Decided to go with the Brushed Cotton material since it is for events in the southern U.S. I will re-review after a few wearings. It is a rich color that with the appropriate coordinated vest will be a show stopper.

Gillespie Frock Coat
Love the frock coat; beautiful burgundy color. This is a well made and heavy coat best suited for cooler weather. I always need to have the sleeves shortened at my local tailors. The size 50 coat fitted my 49 inch chest size.

Great Design...
I was pretty happy with this purchase...size was right on...I had to have the sleeves shortened but that is typical for me. I wish the material was different, it wrinkles very easily. Also, I did exchange the buttons for a bit more pop to the coat...but I will buy more items in the future. PS...if you ever make this coat in a crushed velvet I want one!!...or a cashmere...dang...

Great quality but runs large
My fiancé and I are having a Hobbit themed wedding, and this coat worked nicely for the groom’s Bilbo Baggins’ costume! The quality is excellent. We did have it tailored to our suit our purposes- the shoulders are quite broad so we took them in for a more relaxed/ less formal look. We also had to exchange for a size smaller- the 38 (my fiancé’s measurements) was HUGE on him! If you don’t plan to wear this over a full suit you may want to order a size down or you’ll look like you’re wearing daddy’s clothes :P 5 stars for great quality at a great price, plus the exchange process was really painless.
