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 Coat!
This coat has a ton of style! Relatively lightweight- good for California winters. The sizing is SUPER helpful- normally i wear a MED but due to the chart and the tailored style, i sized up to be more comfortable with modern clothing, and it is GREAT! If i could change ONE thing, it'd be the buttons- they are domed and solid plastic. I understand thpugh- this coat has A LOT of buttons. I will be replacing with flat metal ones to match my style.

An Amazing Coat
The workmanship of this coat is amazing. It is stunning! But best of all, the customer support was fabulous. I bought this coat for my wife, and while ordering a size bigger than she told me she was, the coat was still too small for her. I called and was presently surprised by the customer service. I was able to return the coat for the right size, (2 sizes up!).

Well Made!
This is a extremely well made coat. Good for mildly chilly weather, its a great Fall and costume coat. Only wished they made it bigger like the frock coats.

Lovely coat
Excellently put together. The seams are clean and the material is quality. I wore it out to the mall and got countless compliments. The fit was perfect. Just follow the size chart. There are decorative buttons on the shoulders that I didn't love, but they were easy to remove with some scissors (no damage done to the coat. Just pull the extra thread it leaves behind and they come right out without leaving a hole)

Inverness Coat
I absolutely love this coat, however, it is either cut very small or I have gained a bit of weight, as it is too small and I was unable to wear it to the event I planned to attend. Unfortunately, I cannot return it because it arrived quite wrinkled and I had to have it cleaned. So, I am hoping that somehow I will lose enough weight to fit into it soon.

Pure class
I really love the coat. I wish it were a little thicker for the winter months but for fall and weather up to about 40 degrees, it should be perfect. Love the button detail and the way it stands out. Subtle Victorian beauty!!! I am so glad I took the large. I am not big, but I do have wider shoulders and the size Large is good. I wish things were made with the wider shoulder for us who have them. The large is good, however about an inch on either side more, would have been even better. No worries, its worth it...

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.

The Great Coat is "Great Looking"
This is an excellent coat. It fits well and is quite the looker. I got great compliments. If you are looking to stand out in an extremely elegantly fashionable way, this coat is for you!

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.
