Great coat
I bought this coat for my nephew and he loves it. I was impressed by the quality of this coat.

Coburn coat
I like it a lot. It fits great, even over a sport coat. I wore it to the last meeting of the Sherlock Holmes Society. I have a couple of minor complaints, however. First, there should be some way of fixing the cape together at the front. I wore the coat in windy conditions, and the cape kept blowing over my head like a hood. I felt like the Grim Reaper. Even in a mild wind the cape is unstable. Secondly, the cotton lining of the sleeves offers a lot of resistance when you put your arm through the sleeves. You really have to push, and the cuffs of your shirtsleeves wind up half way up your forearm where they are tight and uncomfortable. Sleeves should be lined with rayon or something offering less friction. Third, I don't like the fabric-covered buttons. They don't push through the button holes as easily as buttons made of other materials, and I can see that they are going to fall off at some point.

Coburn Great Coat...
This is truly...a "great coat." I am very impressed with the quality of this coat. It does run on the large side so I would order the next size down from your normal coat size. Also, it is it is somewhat heavy, but very stylish and will work perfectly for the use I have planned for mine in a new show I'm putting together. Highly recommended...

Almost perfect
Style, fit, and finish of this coat are all excellent. My minor quibbles are as follows: - I found, as did others, that the pockets were somewhat under-sized. My size medium hands barely fit in them. - The wool could be a tad thicker. If it was, this would make a rather good daily wear Fall/Winter coat. - The buttons could be a might more robust. They are of rather light construction. All-in-all it's an excellent coat though.

Amazing quality
This coat, while being wonderfully warm, is light enough to wear over a suit without adding uncomfortable weight! The only possible future issue might be the fabric covering the buttons wearing off from repeated use. Easily repaired, though! I share this because I plan on getting much use from this coat! Too bad there isn't an increase in men dressing like gentlemen!

Perfect for Fred, Scrooge's Nephew
This coat was purchased for San Jose Youth Shakespeare's production of A Christmas Carol. The smallest size was a size too large for the young man playing Fred. We ordered it anyway figuring that the cape would hide it. We removed the small belt in the back (it hit him totally wrong) and the coat was perfect.

I love this coat. Its price competes with any 21st Century coat like it you can buy. It is warmer and more comfortable than any coat I have ever owned. The only complaint is that the pockets are a little small for holding gloves.

so so great coat
The picture of this coat is truly awesome! The fit is exactly as I had hoped and I couldn't be happier with that. The style is nice, and I've gotten a lot of compliments on it. There are a few minor things I would do to improve that, such as having a tie on the front of the cowl, which was common when these coats were popular (really helps on windy days), and I would make the outside pockets big enough to actually fit a glove in each one. The problems are with the workmanship on this. When I was talking with a friend, he said that it's a pretty good price for a costume piece. I don't usually buy things just for costume, and was looking at this or a modern overcoat in a local store. Since the price for this was only a little higher, I chose this. I would have been happier with the one from the store. This coat is definitely for costume purposes only! The main material is so thin that I can see through it. The collar and pocket tabs are of really poor quality and are already worn out. And I've only owned the coat for a few short weeks. The buttons have started falling off (and it fits me a little loosely, which I wanted). And these buttons are also wearing out! I've never seen a button do that. The inside liner only covers the top half of the coat, which a proper one doesn't do (it would cover all the way down). I will be taking this coat and having someone make me one of a similar design with decent materials, which this one is not made with. And it'll probably cost me...

Mad Scientist coat in red
I am very pleased with the quality of this coat. The cotton fabric is very substantial without being bulky or uncomfortable. It is well constructed and I know I will be able to wear it for many years. The only thing I would change is the number of button holes on the adjustable tabs on the back of the coat. There are two buttons but only one button hole. I would love to see 3 or 4 button holes to allow for more adjustments. I ordered the 3XL and it is very roomy which I like, and again I would like the ability to have more adjustments to the back. I paired this with a red top hat, black gloves and a glowing jar around my neck. I got so many compliments at the Edwardian themed party I attended. Red always makes a statement.

For only needing this as a costume it kept me warm while running around. I went with a size larger than recommended and it fits me perfectly. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to do a Dr. Horrible cosplay or even a mad scientist costume.

It is hard to tell the quality with just a picture but this item is indeed well made, I am a big guy so I ordered the XL/2XL and when I received it and trued it on it fit perfectly. The material is a nice weight not light like some cheaper versions very durable. It was a little more then I wanted to pay but it is worth the price, I am very happy with this item

I purchased this for myself for a Dr. Horrible cosplay. It fit a bit bigger than expected, but I am a female instead of male. Nothing a little sewing can't fix. I wore this at Alamo City Comic Con with a tank top and shorts underneath, since it was long enough you didn't need to see the pants and was quite comfortable.

Nice quality coat for the money
The Livingston cutaway sack coat is a VERY NICE coat for the money . It runs true to my standard suit coat sizing and fit me perfectly . The only problem i had was that the top button hole was sewn too small for the button . Easy fix for me so i just handled that problem in house.

A little stiff
The product came in good condition, and it was very sturdy and well made. It was just a TINY bit stiff when we took it out, so trying to get it into a more natural shape to put on our actor was a little tricky indeed. Otherwise, quick service and very professional communication. Thanks Historical Emporium!

Would use again and would recommend to others

I bought this for my Halloween costume but it didn't fit. I bought the large & it was too big but the small was too small. The large fit around my bust but everywhere else it was too big. Too bad, that would have been a great costume for work....

I ordered a small because the dimensions indicated that was the right size for me. It was long, but that is easily fixed. At that price, I was concerned the fabric might be see-through, but it good quality and workmanship. Could not be happier.

Great Coat, Waist a bit small :(
So this is my second clothing purchase for my husband from Historical Emporium and, just like last time, the materials are heavy duty and solid. This is something you can wear for many years, not just on Halloween. Unfortunately, just like last time, it is a bit snug in the tummy. He has a 54" waist and I got the 3x/4x which should have worked since the size chart says it should fit chest/torso up to 58". It will button, but a few of the buttons directly on the widest part of his tummy are straining and a little uncomfortable. He will still use it, but may leave a few buttons undone for comfort. Lastly, as seems to be usual with Historical Emporium, it was a bit long. I hemmed the arms and bottom hem and it looks great now, but that is something that may need doing unless you are tall.

Good product, odd sizing
This is a quality product, but you need more fidelity in your sizing. I ordered the "3X/4X" size, because I was concerned that something labeled "XL/2X" would be too small. I mean an XL and a 2X are quite different is size. The 3X/4X arrived, and it was gigantic. I mean, the thing was a tent. So I returned it and ordered the XL/2X... Too small. That's just silly, frankly.

Love this coat. I had one a while back from this site, but I accidentally shrunk it trying to wash it, and donated it to a theater show I was in. I just bought a new one, and it's the same high quality as my old one. I don't think I can trust any other supplier. It's durable and made of sturdy fabric. How ever, working in a stuffy haunted house will make you sweat with this thing on.

I've used this for a couple cosplays. It is expensive, but the quality of the material is worth it. I absolutely love this thing! If you don't mind paying good money for good quality, i recommend this. It went perfect for my Junkenstein (Overwatch) cosplay.

First off, perceptional internet research exhibits that "The Historical Emporium" carries the most authentic old fashioned apparel products. The Historical Emporium had my "Mad Scientist Howie Lab Coat" shipped the next morning, and almost immediately provided a shipping tracking number. 100% The Lab Coat itself is 99% what I expected. I like that it is long- similar to a trench-coat. However the buttons are NOT made of metal like stated in the item description on the website, and my hypothesis is that the neck collar is NOT "reinforced". My conclusion is that I am 99% satisfied, I would have loved metal buttons and a more reinforced neck collar. I do appreciate the Historical Emporium and will continue to still do business. I also look forward to submitting customer product photos in regard to the monthly contest. Cordially, MaD JaKe

Looks and feels great, fits well
The sleeves were a little long, but then, I'm 5' 7". It fit perfectly everywhere else, and I just rolled the sleeves up a bit. When I get time I may have them hemmed up a bit. But since I was wearing the elbow-length industrial gauntlets over it, the sleeves weren't a problem. This thing looks terrific - I may have to buy them in other colors, but when you wear the white one everyone immediately knows you're a scientist/doctor (I got it for a steampunk mad scientist costume). It's a fairly heavy material, but it's loose enough for good airflow, and I didn't get overheated in it. It was exactly what I needed and wanted, and my costume was quite popular. Thanks!

Great Lab Coat
This is a great quality costume lab coat for the money. It isn't perfect but it is the best I have found for less than $200. The fabric is quite heavy and nice, flows well, and should be easy to age. My only real complaint is the collar is not tight enough when buttoned and flares out like a cone instead of standing up vertically. I will probably move the collar button to try to fix that. The sleeves are big and flared as shown in the photos but that isn't a major issue. The coat does run big so be careful with the sizing. I am a 42 and the M/Lg coat is big on me. This will be perfect for a Dr. Vannacutt House on Haunted Hill party!
Apr 1, 2018

Couldn't be happier
I am 5'9 and around 205 lbs. The L/XL coat was too large and so I returned it for the M/L which fits perfect. I had zero trouble making the return and the turn-around time was less than a full week from return shipping to receiving the replacement.

Great Coat
I do love the coat. The reason I gave it 4 stars is, first, I wish the black accents across the front were a different color. They seem unnecessary in black. The second, I wish the coat was thicker. For the price I expected a heavier coat. It seems a bit thin for the price point that it is at. Other than those two points it is a great coat.

If I Only Had the Shoulders
I bought my normal size of coat, a 52, and this coat fits the size in all areas but one. That being the shoulders. The shoulders hand a good 4" down my arm. I guess I needed the body of Hercules for this to have been a good fit. Unfortunately, this problem cannot even be solved by a tailor. This pattern should be re-thought. If I was not in such desperate need for this coat, I would return it. But due to the circumstances I am stuck with it.

Bad fit
This jacket is nice to look at but the shoulders are huge. The waist fit was perfect but it would never fit anyone's shoulders. It also has some kind of white threading on both arms which is a bit cheap looking. Like the design but not thrilled with the fit or quality for the price.

Slim Fit with Wide Shoulders
The Pros: great quality coat for the price! The fabric feels and looks realistic for battle and camp use. Not too fancy but a very nice coat. Liner is realistic, too. I really liked the design and concept of this, and for the price, it can't be beat. The Cons: the fit and the buttons. It is incredibly slim-fitting, except for the shoulders which are very oversized. Basically, you'd better be in battle-shape to wear this: like a 22 year-old Marine with arms like pipes and no body fat. I tried a size above what I wear and it was too small around the waist and gargantuan in the shoulder. It wouldn't be worth it to take it to a tailor: too expensive. The buttons are difficult to work and feel insubstantial. It would be easy to replace them with something you prefer.

It's a Big Coat (For You)
Superb quality fabric and excellently adhered buttons. It is indeed larger than expected and sizing down is a good idea. This is a commercial-quality coat that has so far done a fantastic job of repelling the blood and fluids of political prisoners and coronavirus-infected degenerates.

Well-made versatility
Do not confuse this with halloween costume crap - it will stand up to close scrutiny - all the buttons are working buttons. It is stage quality. Bought this for an Uncle Fester halloween costume for 2 reasons: it appeared to be well-made and it wasn't a monks robe (which every other dealer tried to pass off as Fester's coat). Alright, this wasn't going to be Fester's coat either, but it looked much closer than anything else I could find. It was perfect! I ordered a XXXL because I wanted to stuff a pillow under it and the fit was still a little loose - at 5' 10" the length was all the way to the floor without tripping over it. Add some makeup and a trick light bulb and, poof - Uncle Fester! Helps to start out with a bald head because skull caps are a pita. I also bought a pair of German made welder goggles with 3 different pairs of lens shades - only ones I could find that actually had metal rims, everything in the steam punk world was plastic. Take off the makeup, add the goggles and some wild hair (or not) and let the mad loose. The coat is made from a good cloth and stitched well so it should last for years, unless you really are a scientist, mad or otherwise, and expect to use it daily. I could see using this for a Mortician as well as the Uncle Fester and Mad Scientist costumes. I just ask myself, "What would Christopher Lloyd do with this coat?"

The best.
Really, no joke. It is almost too big which for me is a pleasant surprise, I ordered a size larger out of habit expecting to have to send it back for being too short, or not being able to put my arms through the sleeves, instead a well made and accurate sized garment arrived in record time. I am quite pleased.

Love this Lab Coat
I am a MS chemistry student in California and was looking to replace my cheap white lean coat for something more aligned with my personality. I wear this while teaching a general chemistry lab class for non-science undergraduate students. I have gotten a lot of really positive responses from colleagues and my students. The fitting is nice and the quality of the material is worth the price. I only wish that it had small slits in the sides at waist level so I could get into my pockets without having to flap open the front.

Top Notch
I was really impressed with the quality of the material, not mention how comfortable it is as well. This is a perfect coat for the mad scientist costume you want. I wore this to my local comic con and it went over way better than I imagined it would. My only nitpick was how long the coat was. I put it on and it went all the way down to almost a half inch from the floor. But fortunately, it was an easy alterations fix. Worth every penny for the mad scientist in anyone.
Sep 27, 2018

Great coat
This is a great lightweight well made coat. As a shorter round guy the M/L fit me well with the only adjustment needed was the sleeves (stitch witchery fixed it). I actually used this as more of a dark wizard cloak and it worked well. I do wish it had pockets but very minor gripe as i was able to access my own short pockets underneath when needed. The lightweight is great for summer events. Delivery was fast.

Absolutely loved this product, it arrived literally within a few days, and I used it for my historical tours here in Old Town San Diego as a mortician. It goes great with my leather steampunk belt bag that I got from here as well. Sadly when my car got broken into 2 days ago, this coat was stolen. I will definitely be getting another one as soon as I can. So if car thieves would rather have this coat than my GPS device, then I'm sure you'd like it too.

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.

I placed my order, ordered 2 sizes bigger than my normal waste, they are slightly big, but I didn't want the tight look.... so perfect for me. I could totally see how some customers would only want to order 1 size larger though, if they wanted the pants to fit near perfect. My order shipped the next day!!!!!! I ordered a bunch of other stuff too, and the whole order shipped the next day! Sure, I grabbed items that the website said they had in stock, but still, great turn around! I bought the pants that go with this jacket as well, and I have to tell you.... I could wear this suit to work on a daily basis and it will hold up the same or better than a normal suit you'd buy at a men's store. I have zero things to say that are bad about this jacket. The longer length is classic. Makes me look like I'm a little more important than the guy w/ only a standard length jacket.....

Too small
I ordered as advised an jacket was too small. Next size up was out of stock so will have to wait a while longer. Fabric is pretty heavy, so not a warm weather jacket.

Hell yes.
This thing is the bomb. Pure and simple.

I love how this fit perfectly on my 14 year old son. If he were an adult I would caution that the coat runs slim and small. Otherwise the quality is great!

Gorgeous & warm
So this came in the mail last week, and it fit as predicted - is a bit large so it can be worn over another jacket, allowing another decent layer of warmth beyond just the coat itself. Nice material, and nicely designed cuts! Only main complaint so far (after having only worn it functionally once) is that the lining is the wrong sort of material - you have to bunch up the sleeves of the undercoat or shirt before putting your arms through the sleeves - otherwise, fabric-to-fabric friction pushes your sleeves up inside the arms of this coat and it's hard to pull them back over your arms. It really should have a silky or satin-like lining to allow it to glide over other clothes.

A In Depth Review
I love this coat. I been wanting one for years. And although it isn't everything I was hoping for, it still passed with flying colors. The outer shell is real wool but it's a woven wool, so it does feel thin. Not a bad thing, still keeps you warm just something that isn't in the description. The sleeve cuffs do roll down like they should. The Buttonholes are a bit tight when buttoning it. The cotton sleeve lining does stick when taking the coat off. But all that isn't so bad, the worse thing about the coat are the front pockets. For a size 42 the pocket width is 4 inches. I can only fit up to my knuckles. But the pocket flap are wider and the pockets do have enough material to be widen to 5 inches max. So with a little work or take it to a taylor, the pockets can be widened and would be unnoticeable. Overall, this coat is a great buy. Where else would you find one like it. (Other than Civil War ones). The "problems" with the coat are minor. They don't interfere with its job. You still keep warm, still can button it, and still can take it on & off fine even with the cotton lining. The only real problem it has are the front pockets being too small. Other than that it's a beautiful looking coat and is perfect for reenacting and/or everyday use.

Coburn Coat
I really like the coat, but I did have issue with the ease of sliding it on as a reviewer pointed when I was looking at reviews. A slicker sleeve liner would be helpful. I knew of this issue when I bought it and bought it anyway. I took it to a conference and received many compliments from many people. It was not a period group, but many loved it. Overall, I am glad that I have it and can live with the sleeve thing.

Great "Great Coat"
I only give it 4 stars instead of 5 because I think it could easily be improved. It's really difficult to get on over most other clothes/coats, due to the muslin used for sleeve lining - changing the sleeve lining to nylon, satin, or anything else "slick" would make a good coat great; The button holes aren't quite big enough, and it's a real bear to get the buttons done or undone - maybe I can find buttons that are just barely smaller; It could be improved if the interior and two exterior pockets were deeper (and wider for the two outside ones) - they'd be a lot more more useful; A nice upgrade would be to change the collar and pocket flap trim from (moleskin?) to velvet or velveteen. Overall, still a really nice coat for the price, and a great fit - I'm going to enjoy wearing it over my wool frock coat in the Winter. Delivered really fast, too - thanks!

I found the fabric weight to be a little lighter than expected and the sleeves fit a bit tighter over the frockcoat than I'd like, but the construction and styling are perfect!

Sizing a bit off. Shoulder width great as normal sizing, but waist and torso is lartge causing the cape and back not to hang properly. Lining could be a little higher grade, as sheds some on clothing under coat. Great design and good weight of wool material.

Practically Perfect in Every Way!
Coat was purchased for a Mary Poppins musical production. The fabric is a very nice weight, flows nicely, and had enough stretch in it that our Mary was easily able to dance without restriction. The price was reasonable for the quality, and coat is highly recommended.

Great Coat!
Oh I was so happy to get this marvelous coat. it is made well, fits me to a t! It is fairly light weight yet it has beautiful weight to it. Very elegant. I was looking for a coat that I could wear as Mrs. Claus and this with a fur collar and cuffs over the satin, will be gorgeous!

Veronica Frock Coat
Even though this coat is beautiful, I am sending this back for a refund. The coat is not a coat at all. It is like a full length jacket that you would wear with a pantsuit. Not what I thought it was by the picture.

Red Frock coat
I went by the past recommendations for the Veronica Frock Coat to order one size up from your usual size and it was the right way to go. The coat is fitted on top, so the extra room works out great! There is plenty of "skirt" on this coat and it could safely be worn as a dress as the buttons do come down far enough to not show too much leg. Very well made, really like the pockets on either side.

This is exactly how it is pictured. The fit is perfect and indeed when they say be honest with the sizing, do that as you will not be disappointed in the resulting product

Not for curvy girls
This was a pretty coat and I was very unhappy I had to return it. As a lady with a small waist and larger hips (Not huge, just hourglass shaped) it really didn't work for me. It made the waist look great, but just wasn't cut for a curvy figure. Customer service was excellent and they refunded it with no problem.

Very Pleased
This frock coat fit perfectly with no need to alter in any way. I am very pleased with the quality of this coat and the price of under $100.00 can't be beat. I wore it to our groups monthly fashion show on the streets of Tombstone and got loads of complements!!

What a very nice, well made coat! Upon receiving, this coat is exactly as it shows in the pictures. It hangs perfectly and all seems are tight. The material is very nice, tuxedo quality. Glad we ordered this coat. If all other items Historical Emporium offers are of this high quality, I'll definitely buy here again!!

Strong Coat
The frock coat is well made, looks good and a fair price for what it is. I am happy with the coat, but wish there were a few changes. The padding in the shoulders feels a bit too stiff and bulky, something with a more natural shoulder shape would be nice. I was also a bit disappointed with the weight of the coat. The site does state the weight clearly, so this was more built up in my head, but a coat with this design, but made of a heavy material (such as wool), would be amazing. All in all, a good coat and I look forward to seeing what other coats Gentleman's Emporium releases in the future.

Frock Coat
The coat is nice over all, well made. But I expected(wished) more rich looking fabric. Also because of thin fabric , I can see through the metal part of covered buttons. I think it may be easy to torn. I wish that more measurements are available when purchasing.

Good fabric, nice details on the back vent of the jacket. This gives it a tailored look even though it fits a spectrum of sizes. We were very pleased.

I purchased this frock coat for my husbands birthday and we could not be happier with it. It arrived in a box packed with enough paper packaging to cushion. The size chart was very accurate so I'm glad we measured before ordering. The detail pleating in the back was very crisp and all stitching throughout the garment is very neat. We recommend this coat to anyone looking for an accurate historical frock coat. It has really taken my husbands steampunk attire to the next level.
