Good, but not great. Reads greenish.
Purchased for Horace Vandergelder in Hello Dolly; we decided it was time to build our late Victorian costume stock by investing in a few quality pieces. Unfortunately, this jacket reads dark green, not true grey. Also it was folded for so long that there are deep creases where the shoulder padding meets the front of the jacket that I don't would come out without major steaming. I plan to exchange for a wool frock coat, assuming the 40R works for this long-armed actor; otherwise will have to use this one in black (due to the unfortunate greenish tinge of the grey cotton).

Nice looker
A nice looking coat but was advertised as cotton but in reality is only 75% cotton. Might get to use this if I change the buttons. Good fit though.

Perfect fit
I ordered this and several other items for my daughter's upcoming wedding. The entire package arrived several days earlier than expected, and I was skeptical of the purchase, but once receiving all the items I realized the material quality was high the fit was perfect and the price was great. I could not have bought a suit for the same price. I am amazed at the outstanding customer service from historical Emporium. I even had to change my pants size day after I ordered and it was corrected and I received the proper fit.

Frock coat is perfect!
I spent many hours trying to find a frock coat close to where I live in Portland, Oregon, and came up empty. Then I went online and discovered The Historical Emporium and the Callahan Frock Coat. I measured my actor and when the coat arrived shortly after I ordered it, I tried it on him and it fit perfectly. He is portraying Harvey Scott, the long-time editor of The Oregonian newspaper, so he had to look dignified. Plus, we are filming the short play he is in, so I could not get by with some kind of cobbled together fake frock coat. The Historical Emporium is an excellent resource with good customer service and I am delighted to have found it in my moment of need. Thanks so much! Ellen Spitaleri, costumer New Century Players

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.

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..

Wonderful Comfortable Coat
I just wanted to put together a distinctive semi dressy outfit to wear out with friends and family for nice events, so this coat suits my needs perfectly. It's classic, handsome, masculine, very well made and very comfortable. I am going to alter it slightly by having a black satin detailed handkerchief pocket added to the left chest area, and I'll also consider adding a matching pair of black satin trimmed pockets just below the high waist seem. I like the functionality and look of these pockets. The size 46 is what I measured for and is what I ordered, and it fits me perfectly.

Compliments
Bought the Callahan frock coat to use during Museum tours of which I am a docent. Received many compliments on my outfit, all of which comes from Historical Emporium. I portrayed a Victorian undertaker for the Halloween season and was told I looked like I fell out of a history book. Couldn't have felt prouder. Heavy weight coat which should keep you fairly warm when the cooler fall weather sets in. I'm happy with the color as it is a rich black and not charcoal. Material is a bit coarse but not a problem. Fit is true to size ordered. Happy with my purchase.

Absolutely awesome
This coat is absolutely awesome, classy and gives a dark touch to my Gothic-Victorian look. It is very comfortable, made of a quality fabric and can be worn for any occasion a gentleman needs to show up. I highly recommend it. Only downside: The sizes sometimes require adjustments depending on your size. This was my case for the length of the sleeves.

NICE
I wear stuff like this on a daily basis, so I need it to be quality. Historical Emporium comes through every single time. The product came quickly and arrived with no damage. The fabric is very stiff, so I do recommend either steaming it, or just wearing it a lot when you first get it so it softens up. Also, it runs a little big. Maybe order a measurement smaller than you'd expect. I will definitely be buying another one of these in a different colour, eventually.

Wonderful coat
This is one extremely well made coat and the brushed twill feels heavy enough for some abuse but is super soft from being brushed, I've even had a drunk seamstress rub her face on it (it was super weird). Plenty warm for fall and will be used for laying in winter, may be a bit much for summer. It does have somewhat of a greenish hue under incandescents, but brown under the sun and regular lights. True to size; I'm a size 42 on tape and in my regular suits, so I ordered the same, and it fits perfectly.

Nice coat!
I like this coat, I wanted one for a steampunk outfit and this fits the bill nicely. I have one small criticism and that's why I didn't give it five stars. It has no hip pockets. This may be because of historical styling, but I do find it a bit of a drawback what with car keys and the like. Still, it's a great coat and I love wearing it. The sizing is good (I did take note of the issue with US sizing since I'm in the UK) and it fits really well, looks good too.

Callahan Frock coats
I have taken my charcoal Callahan frock coat to a tailor who says that the "balance points" are all off and the sleeves sewn on incorrectly. Perhaps it would be a good idea to have your coats (and other items that should fit according to formal standards) manufactured in a country, and by people, that are familiar with weraing these type of items...?

Better than Expected
My experience with polyester, including blends, has been a love-hate thing for a long while. I have to watch what I spend on any one costuming item, so it makes certain things attainable for me... but generally doesn't look top-notch, or lacks a bit in how it's put together. Sometimes, though, I get lucky. This coat is an example. The fabric doesn't have that awful polyester shine that even some blends have, and it feels quite comfortable. The fit is nice, though a little roomy in the shoulders. But when worn with a full outfit, it looks right. I happen to prefer a two or three button front, but the color won me over, and I have to say that I feel the desire to buy the other colors. Oh, to be wealthy!

Not well made
This coat was poorly constructed. I took it to the tailor and he could not fix the puffiness in the shoulders because it was not made in a way that could even be fixed without rebuilding the whole coat. He didn't have the fabric, so this was not even an option, not to mention the expense. I found a different coat online that was better.

Sizing issues
The coat was well put together and the material being polyester was as I expected and acceptable. The shoulders, however, made me look like I was trying to try out as a linebacker. I took it to my tailor which I use for minor adjustments and he said that the shoulders were designed for a size 44 whereas the coat was a 38. He would have to take out two inches of shoulder and rebuild them. The total cost of tailoring was more than the cost of the coat. I've been highly pleased with the shirts and pants but this is my second strike with the frock coat.

Amazing
Honestly, I didn't know what to expect. I've never ordered a historic-looking piece of clothing before from anywhere, and I my primary concerns were: 1) that it would be too small, and 2) that it would be so cheaply made, that other folks at the event would have judgment. 🤣 However when this dress/coat came, I was so excited to open it. It looked very quality made... the color matched what the website showed, and I was thrilled. HOWEVER, there was still my other concern: would it fit? Was this something from China that had a sizing guideline where everything was super tiny? I had ordered up one size, just in case (and you might want to as well?)... knowing I could probably sew in the sides a bit if too big. However, it was perfect! I put it on and immediately felt era-appropriate! I did not wear anything under it except for a black tank top to cover cleavage, and some black tights (I already owned some semi-believable lace-up shoes)... and the way the buttons only go down about to the knees, let air come in an circulate as I walked. It was just a very comfortable dress in every regard. And at/after the event, I got so many compliments! So thanks for the terrific garment, H.E. âÄď and I will definitely continue to be a customer!!

Nice fabric, great style
I loved this coat when I first saw it on HE modeled with some trousers I was interested in. While I tend only to purchase natural fiber fabrics, I was very pleased with the look and feel of this blend! I was especially happy that it is a lighter/medium weight fabric than it may appear in the photos. But it's not an inexpensive feeling lightness -- it has a very nice hand. I already have long coats for cold weather wearing here in the PNW, so this one is absolutely perfect for spring, and even summer and fall. I'll be wearing it a lot! This coat is nicely constructed, and will likely hold up for my lifetime. The only negative is the plastic buttons. For me, they detract from the otherwise elegant look of this coat, but the price point for such a fine garment was very reasonable. I did replace them with some nice leather buttons, which likely would have added a lot to the shipped price, but make a big difference in the overall effect.

Very Nice Coat
I really like the Emerson Frock Coat. I usually stick to 100% cotton or wool, but this coat is a very nice blend. The material is soft and comfortable and it has the weight of an average sports coat. It seems to be the same material as the tweed Inverness coat. The flap pockets on the front are functional, not just for show. The detailing is solid. All around, this is a nice, well made Frock coat. I am delighted to have added it to my collection.

Perfect.
This was described well both in the description and in the comments. To be clear to future people purchasing, this is a very thick garment...almost as thick as a jean jacket, but stiffer. I purchased this for everyday dress up and I love it. but it will take a minute to break in and if you are in a warm climate, this is not the best choice. I look forward to purchasing other colors as well. Thank you!

Sturdy
The fabric is sturdy--essentially denim. Brushed, so with the soft hand of old denim, but with the stiffness of new denim. The fit is correct to slim--for a more casual fit, maybe order one size up. I'm not wholly happy with the seems on the shoulders--they don't lay quite right, but perhaps as the garment breaks in, the folds will relax into a more flattering lay. Still, overall, a very nice coat.

Wonderful coat, comfortable and well-made
As I mentioned in my review of the Livingston Black Brushed Cotton Vest (which I love), I am a professional carriage driver and I wanted some Victorian era clothing to help me look the part more. While this coat, like it's matching vest, does tend to attract horse hair rather well (which is remedied with the simple application of a lint-roller) I am absolutely in love with it. The fabric is high-quality, as is the stitching that holds it all together. I love the simple yet elegant design of the coat, as well as the handy inside chest pocket and the (very cleverly hidden) two inside tail pockets. These tail pockets were so cleverly hidden that my girlfriend and I couldn't seem to find them, though the wonderful customer service representative at Historical Emporium gladly pointed me right to their location inside the tails of the coat in the lining. This coat is also rather warm on a chilly night, but not so warm that I cannot wear it on the warmer days. I have a 43-inch chest, and I ordered this coat in a size 46. It fits me quite comfortably over my vest(s) and other attire. I would gladly recommend both the Historical Emporium and this frock coat to others!

Very Simple
This coat, (as I named the review) is very simple. The material has a very thick industrial feel. It's possible that some of the frock coats of that period were. There are no pockets at all on this coat. So with these two facts I could not use this one. This coat is more outfitted for western wear the period maybe the mid 1800's if you are using the coat for costume it would be fine.

Striking
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.

Quality!
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. Iím 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 groomís Bilbo Bagginsí 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 fiancéís measurements) was HUGE on him! If you donít plan to wear this over a full suit you may want to order a size down or youíll look like youíre wearing daddyís clothes :P 5 stars for great quality at a great price, plus the exchange process was really painless.

This is a great frock coat and I really wanted...
This is a great frock coat and I really wanted to love it. Unfortunately, even though the sleeve length and chest were perfect, it is cut really long and just didn't fit my frame (I'm 5'7" coat size 38). The photo shows it to be cut about 2 inches above the knee, which would've been perfect. I could live with it being at or even slightly below the knee. However, it was at least 8 inches below my knees, which just looked ridiculous. I returned it and ordered a different model.

Beautiful Coat
Ordering clothing online can be quite "hit or miss" as to fit. This coat fit perfectly - chest size 46. Wearing the coat for a week+ now has definitely turned heads and garnered many positive comments. Dapper is the most prevalent, followed by "quite a statement." All recognize the era the coat represents, though they may not be able to verbalize it. Several people have nailed the look to TOMBSTONE. (Kurt Russell 1993). Having experienced a perfect fit in this beautiful coat, I am seriously considering purchasing the Rifle Coat in the near future. Indeed, quite a fashion statement.
