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.

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 they’re 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 wool…and had good reviews. This one runs about the same price as a good quality topcoat, so it wasn’t unreasonable. When he opened it, he was delighted for three reasons: 1) It fit! he’s 6’4” 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°.

Inverness Cape Review
Honestly this is such a nice coat! It arrived in a timely fashion and looks good on stage! It’s a little heavy but that’s because I’m weak!

A complete success
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 for the price
Good quality. Warm and substantial but not overly "heavy weight". Fully lined. Expeditious delivery. Reasonably priced. No complaints.

superb styling
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.

Fabulous
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!

A hit on the first night
I wore this coat to Phantom of the Opera in New York, and it fit perfectly with the venue and the event (it's the oldest show on Broadway...dress up). The quality has inspired me to purchase from Historical Emporium again.

Classy Protection
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.

Inverness coat
The coat is beautiful! The quality is excellent. The fit is generous and long, just right for me and my large frame. The coat is fully lined. The workmanship is excellent. Thank you Historical Emporium.

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.

Top quality yet very affordable!
Unbelievable quality! Every seam is hidden and the entire coat is well sewn, with no loose ends or messy oversewn stitching. The material is top quality with an excellent weight. The coat is versatile. Any man who sees this coat asks where we bought it!
