Black Twill Bustle Skirt
This skirt is well-made and perfect for the stage...very comfortable, too. I chose to wear a petticoat under it, but it also looks good without one.

best skirt yet
This is the 2nd skirt I have purchased here. I bought this skirt 1 size smaller than my previous skirt because I know the sizes run large. It fits perfectly, partly due to the elastic waist. It is also the right length right out of the box (I had to have my other skirt hemmed). I would definitely recommend this to anyone who needs a basic Victorian skirt. Keep a lint roller handy, because the twill attracts almost everything!

Lovely skirt!
This is a very beautiful, well made skirt. It can be thrown in the washer and dryer and the folds and layers in the back can be touched up with an iron - don't have to dry clean! I'm paring this with a pair of victorian boots and the Abbington blouse. One could probably wear this skirt not as a costume, with a long sleeved V neck T-Shirt and a wide black belt.

Beautiful!
This is a gorgeous garment. It is twill, so the hems will tend to fold over in the dryer and it will need a touch-up with an iron when it comes out. but you CAN put it in the washer and dryer, which is huge when you're talking about practical clothing. The length, weight, and drape of this are just beautiful. I have a thick waist, measuring around 36", and I ordered the XL. It fits well enough that I'm not going to exchange it but if I had it over I would order the Large -- there's ample stretch in the elastic and it would be a bit more snug/secure in the smaller size. Would love to see this offered in other colors!

a rustle in the bustle
This is a super skirt. I wear a size 18 or better and it fits to perfection. AND doesn't look too big. the ruffle is only in the back and makes a nice silhouette. the front panel hangs smooth, just as it should. I would buy this in other colors too, if only it were made in brown, rust, tan or navy.

Walkabout
This skirt came with plenty of length for me at 5'8". It is well constructed and the elastic had a comfortable amount of give. It looks good alone; but the twill has a soft hand after washing. I don't find this a detriment at all for it makes it very comfortable. But it loses a little fullness because of it. It also looks great over hoops or with just a small bustle pad.

Great skirt
Ordered this at the last minute before an event and so glad I did. Lovely weight and quality of fabric. Great, comfortable design. Looked great, was easy to put on and it fit nicely under a corset. If only it came in a lovely dark brown...sigh. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a bit of a fancier back but still maintaining a general simplicity and elegance.

Very nice shirt
Love the shirt, the fit is great and the look is exactly what I wanted. I found out at the cleaners that it needs to be dry cleaned because it does not open up in front and can't fit on the ironing device they use. So it costs a little more to get cleaned. No biggie but something to consider I suppose.

Styling...
I find the most helpful reveiws discuss sizing and not aesthetics. For me, the fit depends on the cut of the garment, I am to thick to wear "skinny" tailored clothes and often, if I go one size larger, it can look like I am wearing my father's clothing. In a sport coat I look for a 43" regular and once again depending of the cut of the garment, along with my own seasonal weight loss or gain, the article of clothing "fits" or looks styling or looks like I am in desperate need of a tailor. Out of the bag, my ordered "Commander Vest" fit nicely and allowed enough room for me to feel comfortable without adjusting the back strap. I purchased this vest for part of a SteamPunk costume I've assembled to wear to DragonCon in the fall of this year. I'm still working on some other applications... Thanks,

Another fine vest you gotten me into! This high collar vest provides a distinguished and unique look that will have you looking like an officer and a gentleman. It looks great with an ascot or can even be worn with a regular tie and suit for the avantegard anachronistic look. I was impressed with the craftsmanship and durability that is usually reserved for overpriced designer wear. Since it is worn close to the neck, I would suggest getting a size larger than you would normally wear. It has a surprisingly fitted feel.

Morning Coat
If you got your measurements done well this coat is a wonderful fit. I did some research on how the coat should drape on the person, and this rests really well on me. I am below average height for a Caucasian male in between 5'5" and 5'6". The morning coat is longer than is traditional due to my shorter stature, but I don't mind that at all. It looks like it was tailored just for you if the measurements were done right.

Good Purchase!
I am in a garage rock band, all of us 55+ years old, and we are beginning to play some larger gigs. I needed something to provide a little more stage presence, so I shopped around and ended up buying this coat. Fits perfectly, perfect look over a T-shirt with black jeans; gave me exactly the look I was after - - not over the top, but unique and a little classy. The quality of the fabric and the craftsmanship is much better than I expected - - much better than some blazers I have spent much more money for. This coat is good enough quality that I would wear to a formal party. A good purchase!

Worth the wait
I waited two years to buy this coat and when I slipped in on for the first time I was immediately in awe over the feel of the fabric as it draped around my body. The quality of this coat has no equal. I still need to take the coat to a tailor to make the coat form fitting but this coat demands attention as is.

This hat is absolutely gorgeous! It is exactly as pictured. The green in the hat is minimal and the hat itself reads as black from a distance of 4 ft. for more. The hat is a little on the large size, but it is well balanced. It can easily be secured with a hat pin. Turn of the century glamor personified.

This is a black hat and looks fantastic. We used it for Lady Bracknell in The Importance of Being Earnest. It does get hot after awhile - but the look is so great it is worth it. It fit my teenage daughter's head easily - no weird tightness. Well-shaped. Well-made. There was one spot inside the hat that had some sort of roughness which was making her forehead itch - but, there is no indication of poor quality. It's worth the price! We temporarily stuck a small piece of fabric over the spot and will seek a more permanent solution when we have time.

Pretty Petticoat
Uncertain of size to order, so I went with Large. Fit good..and with the adjustable draw string, it was secured and gave a nice fullness to the black walking skirt worn over the top. The ruffled hemline gave a very nice affect and petticoat added additional warmth this early, chilly Fall.

It makes such a delicious SWISH sound when you...
Initially, I ordered this in an XL for my 40" waist and I had to exchange it for a large. It is a nice weight of cotton. Not so light that I fear to wear and tear it, but not so heavy that the waist tie binds. Really simply perfect. I wore it around town this winter under another skirt (or three - I'm so not used to this thing called "winter"). The extra ruffled layer that goes from just under the knee to the ground really made a difference on the wind-up-the-skirt chill factor and yet, being cotton, was not uncomfortable when indoors where this marvel called "electric heat" was up and running. Also, it is a titch longer for a section at the rear of the skirt. For the first time in my life, I found a skirt wasn't shorter in back than in front when worn with my overly large keister (I could make Kim Kardashian jealous!). In fact, that extra 2" of length is just enough to make it hang level to the ground should you decide to wear it over a bustle. Liked it so much, I bought it in white, too. :)

Versitile & comfortable
This is a really useful skirt. It's light and full enough for an under-skirt. I've also "cheated" and worn it as an outer-skirt in hot weather/environments. If you put a belt over the waist you can't see the drawstring, and it passes nicely for a walking skirt. I'm very happy it's 100% cotton, so it's breathable in warm weather.

Can't beat the quality
I have purchased other "costume-type" clothing from other sellers online and you never know what you're going to get. Often it is cheap, flimsy, thin material, with bad sewing, crooked seams,skimpy cut, etc. Not so with this lovely petticoat. The fabric is thick and excellent-quality. The workmanship is excellent- I am a seamstress myself so I do recognise when things are very well-made. Given the amount of fabric used (very generous) and the quality of it (where do they get their cotton? Because I can't find anything this nice at the usual fabric stores), as well as the craftsmanship of the construction- I could not make this petticoat for what I paid for it here. The styling is excellent and versatile. I can wear this under a Renaissance skirt with a peasant blouse and bodice, or I could layer it under a Victorian gown for the Dicken's Faire. Or....I may just toss on a french sailor tee-shirt and wear it to the beach!

Black Petticoat
Love the good quality cotton fabric and trimmings! I can never have too many long black skirts! Great for the winter with a short or long coat, or on hot summer nights with my black shroud top & silk camisole when I want to express my inner Goth ...

Really good cotton
I choose the wrong size, too big, but I'm clever with needlework and I'll fix it quickly. Nice enough to be used as a skirt.

Just like Doc's
I wanted a Puff Tie because I'm working on a Doc Holliday outfit. This tie worked perfectly. Shipping was fast, and I received it about 4 days after ordering! Exactly as described. Great value!

Nice looking tie!
I ordered this tie on behalf of my brother for a steampunk wedding we attended. It is a high quality tie. Its color is exactly as pictured; the tonal pattern is more evident in person than it is in the photograph. I can't comment on the tie tack that it came with - I didn't see it, because he replaced it with a steampunk gear tie tack. We were very very happy with our experience shopping with Historical Emporium. The products shipped quickly, arrived on time, the order was correct, and everything was high quality. I would happily recommend this vendor and this tie to anyone who asks.

The most dashing tie ever!
This tie was an important part of my husband's wedding attire. He looked absolutely tantalizing in it! The quality is excellent and the color is rich and manly. I just could not stop telling him how deliciously handsome he was in his black cherry Puff tie. Of course emphasizing the P in Puff made it all the more fun. I highly recommend this item!

Tall Derby
This was my first purchase from Historical Emporium. I have to admit that I was a little skeptical and expected the hat to be more like a mediocre costume quality item based on the price. However, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and workmanship on the hat. It has a full liner and sweatband inside and the construction and materials are very solid; the fit was perfect too. I am a historical music re-enactor and this item is perfect for one of my impressions. I'll be a return customer for sure.

I needed a hat that I look good in AND has no hint of "cowboy". This hat has a curved brim to distinguish it from a British Banker bowler which has a straight brim.

At Last a great bowler
I am delighted with this hat. I plan to wear it with suits and not as a costume. I will most likely order another in a different color. I'm on a solo campaign to bring back the day wen men typically wore hats.

So damn good.
Okay, lets get past the basics. The hat looks fantastic. Just DAMN fine. Now, despite my big head (really big. I usually have to stretch out XLs) it was a shade too big BUT the brilliant internal elastic took care of that very nicely. As a tip, if you pull the elastic out below the brim at the back, you get a very comfortable yet secure fit. Feels great and looks better. Superb value.

Wonderful!
This hat was a special gift from my bride on my wedding day. We chose it for its clean, stylish, formal design, and paired it with a nice hat band. I looked top-notch. The hat shipped on time with a requested delay, and came double boxed so that I could keep the hat box to store it well inside of. Inside of the hat's top rests on my head, so it is wearable while driving a car because it doesn't raise up much taller than I am.

I got this hat because i love top hats and dont see them worn casually anymore... I see fedoras and what have you and thats all, i wanted to stand out in a fashion sense. I get people asking where i got my hat, and that they love it whenever i go out now. its entertaining but not the strict reason why i got it . I just love top hats lol
