The materials the clothing are made from are high quality and very authentic ... true to history! They give a very custom look and feel ... it's possible t hat these articles may be found elsewhere, but I bet it is hard to find, the selection is limited, and the efficiency of ordering is probably more cumbersome. Historical Emporium has figured out how to effectively operate a very niche market.
Trust the size recommendations given on the website ... they know w hat they are talking about ... these aren't contemporary clothing styles ... they are historic styles, and therefore have differing sizing systems from todays clothes.
I had one article of clothing sent in the wrong size (simple mistake), but Historical Emporium's customer service department was efficient and fixed the problem, no questions asked ... a very easy exchange!

I ordered this same top hat several years ago but now needed a larger size. The price had increased about $30.00. The Pecan color this time was a couple of shades darker than the first one - but - it's actually the color I really wanted! So this was good. It's just perfect!
Just wanted to add a comment for customer service rep - food for thought - the first hat which was less expensive was packaged beautifully, with cardboard supports top and bottom, circling all around the hat and a plastic covering over the hat as well (included in the price). I still use that box to store the hat - because it won't be damaged. That perfect extra touch for such a stylish top hat. This new top hat was just placed in the box with some tissue, not even a plastic covering. Had the box been damaged in shipping, so would the hat have been dented. It cost more now and the packaging was so much less. I know things have gone up, but the "premier" packaging should have been included in the new price increase. It's not really a big deal, but I did miss that personal touch in packaging. I do however LOVE the hat and Historical Emporium. Great product(s) and would order again and again. Thank you.
