Awesome
Beautiful shirt. Sewn well. Great lace. Fits well. Too long,I wish I could tuck it in my pants. Long like a nightshirt but certainly not one. Looks great w a captains coat,and your black gloves. Wore a top hat w it.

Bellamy shirt
I'm a 180 pound, tall woman who bought this shirt in a large to wear with my jacket and Victorian skirt. I could have done better with a medium. The sleeves are very long. I love the quality and the shirt looks perfect underneath my jacket.

Perfect match.
I ordered this shirt in combination with other items for a party costume. I ordered a 2x even though I am a 1x. This was a good decision as the shirt fit perfectly. The scent out of the bag as unique but not unpleasant. After washing and ironing the shirt looked better than before. This shirt can be used for anything from baroque to pirate! Thank you for a great product.

Pure 18th Century!
This looks like something out of Errol Flynn's "Sea Hawk" wardrobe! Great fit and a ton of attitude. You can tuck the lace up into the cuff for less frill and the jabot is removable as well so you've got some flexibility with the look! Now ...... where'd the rum go??

Very happy with the quality of this shirt. The material is comfortable and it really looks "the part." I especially loved the frilly lace at the bottom of the sleeves. There's an elastic material in there that allows you to easily move the sleeves around to your liking.

A Great Shirt For A Workin' Man
Some week ago, I received my latest order, the Chocolate-colored Fundamental Work Shirt. What can I say, no loss in quality regarding this item, on the contrary in fact. The fabric feels terrific when I wear the shirt. It has a warm brown color, which actually isn't done justice in the pics online. I'll definitely order some more colors of this shirt.

Work shirt.
If I wanted to nitpick, I would wish the fabric of this shirt to be a bit heavier. As it is, it appears to be well made and true to the mid 19th century style. I'm happy with it and will make additional orders in the near future.

A superb colour that will work well with anything! I bought it to fit a 19th century worker's outfit, which I can casually or formally wear to any event. The fabric is very comfortable. Definitely add an ascot and a vest to this, and you'll receive compliments right away!

Not only are they as pictured, they are of the highest quality and seem to be what your grand or great grandparents would have gotten back in the day. These would last for years if worn daily much less for events. Not cheap in price nor in quality. Your money well spent.

I needed some 1850's period style clothes for a pioneer trek that we have planned with our church youth group. The shirt is one item I ordered. It is great. The style and cut add to the whole outfit. The shirt is well made and of excellent quality I am well pleased. It arrived quickly and fit perfectly. I would highly recommend it. It helps me to feel "old fashion" and pioneer like. Although at my age it may not take too much.

I do love all your clothing , and have yet to be disapointed in a purchase ... I must say at first I thought this large shirt was to small , but after the first gentile wash and wear , I realized it was the nature of the natural "crinkle" of the cotton and now it's one of my favorites ... One of many more to come I'm sure .........

Superb!
Once again, I am simply delighted by the superior quality of this item, its authentic styling and true to size fit. It's also quite stylish and damned comfortable, to boot. I've only one, eensy problem with the shirts available here: I love french cuffs, and they simply aren't available on many of the shirts. You might want to seriously consider asking your manufacturer to offer them. Otherwise? Fine garment!

Love the Look!
If you love the look of the Wild, Wild West, you will absolutely love the Coulter Shirt. This shirt has the perfect collar for a hand-tied bow or string tie. It is comfortable to wear and can go well with any solid-colored vest. The fit is fantastic! Best of all, it does not need dry cleaning. Machine wash in cold water and hang to dry for best results.

a wonderful buy
When this shirt arrived the first thing i noticed was how soft the fabric was . Once i wore out to a halloween event and felt how good it was on my body i thought how outstanding it really is i wore it with my velvet collar mourning coat black white spat boots and my nobleman's cane and stood out i can recommend how comfortable this shirt is you must not wear a vest/waist coat with ito though as it will hide the overall beauty and fine craftsmanship/tailoring of the shirt unless you wear a open vest Once more a wonderful item from this company with fast shipping

I was very pleased with the shirt as a whole but the big draw back was the neck was not big enough. On an XL or 2 XLR shirt the neck size should be bigger. I'm going to have to take it to be adjusted by a tailor.

Another great purchase
The navy shirt has quite a distinct cut, slightly more full than the red workman's (forgot name) I purchased earlier. I am equally pleased with this shirt as the last, and will be looking for a deep green one next. By the way, they wash beautifully, but bleed til second wash, so just wash with darks..and do NOT dry. Hanging them to dry has left the style and size intact. Off to shop...

GREAT SHIRT!
Material feels substantial but comfy; sleeves give lots of room to move; comfy neck and cuffs; nice detailing. The only point I would EMPHASIZE is that it MUST be washed in cold water. The pleat detailing beside the button band reduces the stretch across the chest. It is not forgiving - esp. if you shrink the shirt by washing it in warm water (like I did). I tried to order a larger one in navy, but it was not available.

The Victorian shirt I've always wanted
THIS is the Victorian/Edwardian shirt I've been looking for all along. Finally a shirt with a properly tall collar that fits so well I may not have to starch it the way I've done with other shirts that I've worn in the past. The collar is quite comfortable. The material is a little thinner than the Frontier Classics Dodge City shirts I'm used to but it fits well and would be cooler to wear in warmer climates. I cannot begin to express how happy I am this shirt is now available. If my budget permits, I hope to order a second one soon.

Perfect fit.
I had some concerns about the sleeve length on the large size shirt. The large size is 16 1/2 35-36. I am 6'4 1/2" tall and I usually wear a 16 1/2 36-37. I called the customer service number and I spoke with Eve. I explained my concern to her. We were both online at the time and she told me that the gentleman modeling the shirt was 6'5" and he was wearing the large size. She told me this size would fit me perfectly and if not I could return it. I received the shirt in a timely manner I might add and the shirt was a perfect fit. Everything was perfect. Thank you very much for the wonderful service and wonderful product.

Flabberghasted!
Unlike most of the Historical Emporium's clients I buy these shirts for motorcycling. I've found that pull over button up shirts like this help keep bee's out of my shirt and I am very allergic. Henely's as they are sometimes called are basic and there are very few out there in commercial land that are anyway near as colorful as your selection. This Pipestone shirt is my first and I got an XL. The collar is big and I am waiting for the first wash to see how it shrinks so I'll know what to get in the future. It is functional and, dare I say, fashionable. I wonder if I may start a new trend, probably not but hey I'm happy. This is a sturdy shirt for being so fashionable.
