More than happy!
I honestly did not know what to expect as far as quality and I have to say I was very impressed. The cape is beautifully made. It is not some cheap reproduction but a well put together, stunning piece of clothing. Its one size fits all is a little big on me. Im 5 11 at 185 lbs and the shoulders are a little large, but I can certainly live with that. I would recommend Historical Emporium to anyone looking for quality period clothing.

Real clothe, not a costume
Was perfect for acting Jack The Ripper last Halloween, it's twice the price of a cheap costume but 10 times better quality, even more!

The black Inverness Cape
The cape looks good, all seems to be in order with it, how it is made, the buttons, etc. The black satin lining is nice.

Plays the part
I needed this for a cemetery tour that I was involved with. And I wanted to do the Victorian era and this was perfect. I got many compliments on it and it really looks good on me definitely happy with the purchase.

A quality costume
Got this for a Halloween costume. Also for my stage theater. This was a very good value decently well made with good pockets. Wore it in NYC Halloween 2021 and it was comfortable and warm enough but not suitable for really cold weather. Glad I bought it and will have many future uses.

Excellent cape at an excellent price. And there is very little sticking on the black cotton. So glad this cape became available again.

For many years I have wanted this very coat and at long last, I have one now, and it is absolutely wonderful! It is the perfect fall coat, light enough to wear on its own or, should the weather turn a bit chilly, with a light jacket underneath and you are set to go. I was not sure if I'd like the sleeveless design but I absolutely love this coat. I will be purchasing the full sleeve, 100% wool version soon for when the snow starts. This is not a coat for everyone due to its style and cut and it raises eyebrows whenever I wear it but I am glad I did.

This is a beautiful well made jacket, it is heavier in weight than I expected, but very good quality .

Wow! Completely exceeds expectations
Full size cape with no skimping. Quality wool, fully lined, and full length. I was very pleasantly surprised to find a genuine usable over cape. This is not a flimsy costume cape. Itâs the absolute real thing. First rate. Worth every penny and much more. Wow

Bigger is Better, Capes are Warm
This is a cape, and some might not understand what that means when they purchase, because most folks in the U.S. don't go about wearing capes often. Good wool, good liner, very warm, good design. It is a "one size fits most," garment. People who are less than 5 feet tall will probably find this coat too long (although it can be tailored). It is much bigger than I thought that it would be. The benefit is that it will fit over whatever you are wearing. It will fit over and protect/conceal your clothes, baby, lap dog, armour, weapons, tools, backpack (but maybe not all at once its not totally Mary Poppins.) It will also make a general purpose blanket if you are trapped in the cold somewhere. I recommend it. Capes for everyone.

For The Vintage Brother
Beautiful! Classic appearance; Well made; performs well even while wearing a suit beneath the cloak. Both fantasy and vintage style mixed together. Exactly what I ordered; exactly what I imaged.

Well made wool cape coat
I bought the black...I normally wear a large...the Cape fit extremely well....very long..a about 3 to 4 inches above the ankles... that's exactly what I wanted...great for a person who likes or needs to wear suits to work..this fits perfectly over jacket and does not make bullkie like regular long wool dress coats. The delivery was also faster than I expected...overall, if you are on the market for a formal wool cape like you see in the picture, then this is for you.. I would say this coat will fit from a large to an xlarge... don't know beyond that or below for a medium might be too big... that's my perception guys as I said I am large..and I could see someone a little heavier than me (5'9 190lbs.) Fitting into this because it is a cape which allows for more space inside

The inverness Cape is a beautifully crafted item in 100 percent wool! I can't afford a Harris Tweed one for my highland kilt oufit but this will do wonderfully

High Quality Garment
This cape is quite stunning. I previously purchased the Inverness Ulster in tan herringbone, and I am just as happy with this. I will need to have this one shortened slightly, but that is due to my lack of height, not to the product. Historical Emporium is a class act through and through.

Awesome Cape!
This cape is well constructed of high quality materials, definitely an asset as an everyday coat or costume. I am very happy with this purchase, it was exactly as advertised and arrived on time in great condition.

inverness cape
Button hole for the top button is not in the right place causing a wrinkle , because the next button hole is too close to the top one. I'll have to have it fixed here. Other than that I have enjoyed wearing it.

Perfect Dickens Cape
I've had my eye on this Inverness Cape for some time and finally purchased it to wear at Dickens on the Strand in Galveston Texas. The event was held this past weekend and I couldn't be happier with how the cape fit, looked and performed! I'm six foot tall and the cape is a perfect length for me. It's made of weighty 100% wool with a nice satin lining and is period correct in every respect. The Cape is very well styled and toasty warm. It also has two generously sized pockets which came in very handy. A PERFECT winter weather garment addition to my Regency/Victorian wardrobe. I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase!!!

Cloaked in Mystery
Ever since I was a kid, I have LOVED this look in film. I kept watching this item over the past two years and finally just ordered the darn SO GLAD I DID! It is exactly what I was expecting and looking for. It's a heavy weight, but that's OK, it's rare that you not only get "what" you paid for but MORE than you paid for, but this is one of those purchases. It just sets that air of mystery I've always loved about this look. BRAVO, Historical Emporium. You didn't just "meet" expectations -- you EXCEEDED them with this item!

Great fun and good service
I bought this cape on a whim during the sale. I had a slight snag when ordering (not their fault), but worked with customer service on the phone. My issue was resolved quickly and painlessly, and I now own a really nice piece for Halloween and theater. So much nicer than any piece of junk you'd get from a discount store.

Excellent Quality and Shiping
I ordered this cloak in hopes it would make it here in time with standard shipping. To my delight, the package arrived well before the expected date. Then I opened it. Wow what great quality. The cloak was amazing. This is not a cheap costume piece. Thank you H.E. I will definitely be doing more business with you and have already referred you to others who asked..."Where did you get that?"

I ordered this cloak along with the Historical Emporium's Vintage Black Velvet Smoking Jacket in order to dress as the Third Doctor from BBC's Doctor Who. Worked like a charm, and I can always dress as Jack the Ripper for those more horrifying of times. I am most certainly enjoying it. The satin has a nice shine to it so the red catches the light quite nicely. A downside to my combination of clothing is that the satin slides off the velvet so I spent a bit of time adjusting it to look right, but when I did it was glorious.

Husband is delighted
We live in Michigan and winters can get pretty bitter. My husband had been looking for an Inverness cape for a couple of years, but theyre pricey or costume-y. I stumbled on this one while trying to find the name of the style coat and was surprised to see it was made of wooland had good reviews. This one runs about the same price as a good quality topcoat, so it wasnt unreasonable. When he opened it, he was delighted for three reasons: 1) It fit! hes 64 and broad-chested, so normal clothes are screaming for mercy) 2) It was a heavy-weight wool. This weighs more than the Swiss-issued military dress coat he has. Fits him better, too. 3) It is warm. We are at the beginning of our winter and it was too warm for him at 32°.

My husband loves wearing this cape. When he is really cold there is room to wear it over his casual winter coat and still look good. A complete success.

Good quality. Warm and substantial but not overly "heavy weight". Fully lined. Expeditious delivery. Reasonably priced. No complaints.

I wear formal Scottish attire frequently, and the Inverness is the traditional outerwear. Yours fits wonderfully, and is suitable in any weather. I do not hesitate to recommend it as an excellent value.

Best. Overcoat. Ever.
Possibly the favorite item I've ordered from Historical Emporium so far, this is a strong, sturdy, and warm overcoat with great style. Definitely draws attention, but doesn't look like a cheap costume coat at all. Warm, practical, and effective... kept me comfortable and dry on a recent boat tour of Prince William Sound, Alaska.

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!

Inverness Dress Coat
The Inverness Dress Coat is first rate: the quality, fabric and appearance are of a very high standard. The coat is ideal for any formal occasion or role play. The construction (sewing) is of exceptional high quality, the coat is fully lined and the fit is generous and long, just right for me and my large built. I have searched the internet for quite awhile now (Both in the UK & USA etc) and found Historical Emporium stands out as the front runner in the products it sells. This Inverness Coat is very expensive here in the UK, averaging over £1,000 plus, thus the Historical Emporiums Inverness Dress Coat offers great value for money, even when you add/include shipping, UK Handling & UK Import Tax to the final cost. I am delighted to be a customer of Historical Emporium and I am enjoying my product with the knowledge of investing in an exceptional high quality Inverness Coat. Thank you Historical Emporium and I look forward to further purchases.

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.

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.
