Love this shirt!
I absolutely love this shirt. The collar height is perfect. I habitually dress Victorian and Historical Emporium clothing is a staple of my wardrobe. This shirt is the perfect addition to my dress shirt rotation.

Ran big
Great quality cotton shirt pullover with buttons half way down chest and gathered back. Putting it on transforms you into an old time shopkeeper or gambler. The XL was very roomy. I usually wear a 34 sleeve and 17 neck. Neck was comfortable but I probably could have gone with a large. Was long too so plenty to tuck in. Well worth the cost for its authentic build. With the unique collar, a regular dress shirt cannot compare.

Gorgeous shirt
I bought this shirt for my wedding to go with the River Vest. I bought an XL and it was way too big. The style of the shirt gives lots of pleating at the back for a billowy appeal. Very sharp. So, I reordered another shirt in a Medium and it fits perfectly. Wow what a great shirt. The style is wonderful, the quality is very good, and the material is a nice cotton. The shirt has sleeves that are a bit loose (on purpose) and it is a very attractive Victorian look. I will wear this to my wedding with the vest. Can't wait.

Comfy and casual
This is a casual shirt with a simplistic, frontier style that I like a lot. The color was lighter than I expected - but this is good because I find I can wear it with all of the vests and dungarees of different colors that I have. The fit of this shirt is loose and comfy. The back stitching has a great, subtle, frontier look. Perhaps this shirt can be made in the color black? I think the style of this shirt plus the color black would give it a very dramatic look.

Too big
Shirt seems to be well constructed and fabric is quite lightweight, great for summer. It is too big however. Ordered a Large for my neck size, which is a 16, and I can fit my hand into the collar. I sadly threw away the tags and packaging before I could really try it on with the vest I bought previously, so unreturnable. It's a good shirt, nice metal buttons, but if you buy one, size down!

Great quality for price
Coulter shirt in natural color is excellent quality for the price. Will definitely be using this company again. Shirt is slightly roomier than expected, but is more historically accurate in that regard. Natural color is not too dark. Sort of an off-white linen color. Better than I was expecting. If you want a more fitted shirt, try ordering a size under what you usually need. I wear a medium in most shirts, but suspect that a small would still fit, even in the collar, for a more fitted appearance. Overall great shopping experience

Too large
The shirt was exactly what I was looking for. However, I wear an extra large and ordered same. Regrettably, the shirt was huge. Thank you for graciously accepting the return. Again regrettably, the shirt was not available in a large. Success, another item in a different style was ordered, shipped immediately, and the large was perfect.

Beautiful shirt.......and just as seen on the site. Fits perfectly. Yellowy in colour, and looks fantastic when worn with a mixture of browns like the Griffith Frockcoat in walnut......and the Sweeney Trousers with the Herringbone pattern. Go for a browny/ greeny / tweedy type vest with the THIS shirt, and the other types of Brown available in coats and trousers.......and you'll see what i mean. 5 stars.....and well deserved.

This blouse runs extremely big. I had previously ordered a bella blouse in large. It fit a little too snugly so I ordered the bellamy blouse in extra large. It was way too big, I looked like I was wearing a parachute. It is currently at my local seamstress's to see if she can figure out how to make it fit me.

I perform in a Fleetwood Mac Tribute Band. I am the drummer, so i am portraying Mic Fleetwood. He wears pirate shirts, so i ordered this one. It will work well, along with my black vest..... Now, if I could only grow about eight inches taller!!! The shirt is nice, seems like better quality than my old one. Washing it twice to try to get the unusual smell out of it

Great Product
The denim Longview Bib-Shirt was my 6th shirt of that style... each one a different color. ( I have one of every color available in the Longview Bid style) For me, the style is kind of my > 'signature'. When wearing one, I get a lot of positive-comments when I take my wife dancing (Texas-two-step dancing). The style certainly fits the Western-Dance persona. Presently, I am waiting for a 'heads-up' from Historical Emporium, as to they're re-stocking of my size in, 'Brushed Twill Longhorn Shirt'_ colors Green and Gray... When I am alerted that the shirts are BACK in stock, I intend to place an order for them. Folks_You can't go wrong , if you chose to invest in anything from Historical Emporium. I've found the items I've purchased fit true to size. The items are sent promptly. Well-made. And reasonably priced.

You cannot go wrong with this shirt.
I am serious. It feels so good ( wash before wear ) that you just want to wear one every day. They are cool in another way. The stains that accumulate from a few small drops of stout may stick but the effect is an increase in the character or the shirt. I liked the first one so much that I bought two more. In this shirt, you can look diesel as hell or fop about on the town. Add a waistcoat though...for decorum's sake.

Work shirt
I really like this style, its really comfortable. But be sure to order a size larger than what you normally wear, I wear a size 17 neck and when I received my order and tried it on, it felt a little tight in the chest area, I think it had something to do with the way the shirt is sewn at the bottom of the opening, it kind of bunches up a bit. I sent it back and got a size 18-18.5 and now it fits a lot better.

OK shirt
I liked the Laborers Shirt much better than this one. This was of a thinner material and I liked a collar much better than the mandarin look. Quality seemed ok but again in my opinion not as nice or authentic as the Laborer Shirt. If you like this style of pure white color and a thinner material than you could do worse I'd think. Just ok.

Sub-standard Quality
I had ordered this same item before in 2014 but H.E. has changed suppliers apparently. The original shirts were sturdy and very durable and I still wear them often. The current product quality is lighter weight, doesn't hold its shape, is poorly cut and generally shoddy. I won't be ordering again.

Beautiful shirt
I purchased this shirt to have cool protection from the sun. It fit true and is also beautiful. The arms do not get tight in any position. I bought the lightweight all cotton shirt to fit loose, not snug. The front is well made, pleated and buttoned from half way up the chest. It looks like a shirt Charles Ingalls would wear on Little House on the Prarie. Very nice. Would look good in a cowboy shoot.

Nice shirt
I bought two items, a blouse and shirt. One fit, one did not. Fitting mail order items is always a little harder, especially when the items are not of a common design. I was somewhat surprised by the type of fabric the shirts were made from. It was more a of a fine muslin than a broad cloth. A better description of the weave, thread, weight, and behavior of the cloth would have been helpful. The look and quality of the items is great!

Recieved my order quickly and in fine shape. I wore it first to a "workin' folk" dinner. The shirt looked dashing. Then used it on the shooting range (Cowboy Action Shooting) and it functioned even better than it looked. Plenty of arm room and flexibility. Material is nice, not flimsy, the color is fast after washing, the fit is nice and the size to fit relationship is accurate. A excellent workin' mans shirt. I have a second in maroon. I might yet get another.

Good Shirts!
The Fundamental Work Shirt is a good fit. I'm 220 pounds, 5'9" tall, and the 2X fits well, except the sleeves are a little long, but not so long I need to send them back. The Essential Work Shirt Seems slightly fuller, and the fabric seems somewhat heavier, but the overall fit is close. Both types are relatively easy to get on and off, and seem nicely made. The shirts have a definite "night shirt" look to them, but they are comfortable and roomy. I tried them on with bluejeans, and khakis, and they look good--a combination modern/retro look. I expect some looks and comments when I go out in the world wearing these shirts. I fully expect to have to answer the question, "Where did you buy that shirt?" I will wear them alone or with my Woolrich wool vests, which looks great. If you want some casual shirts that are different, and will set you apart from the rest of the herd, give these shirts a try. You'll be the only cat in town with genuine manly puffy sleeves. If you can pull that off, you'll be a man, my son. (Sorry, couldn't help it. A little fun with Rudyard Kipling's poem, "If--.")

Color difference
Great shirt. Very good material. Authentic looking. It looks even better after I ironed it using Magic Sizing (don't like starch) of the Extra Crisp type, in the green can. The material takes to the iron well, easy to iron. The sizes run a little big. I am a 16 1/2 - 32/33. I picked the 16 - 16 1/2. If I loose some weight, I will have to have them taken in on the sides. Sleeves a little long too. But, they are great looking. My wife complimented me when I tried one of the two on. Great quality. I will be taking them to my vacation on a horse ranch soon. Will inform after I come back. My reason for giving it a 4 stars rather than 5 is because the colors are a bit darker than in the pictures. The navy blue looks almost black, even under the sun. The burgundy one is darker than what you see here. But that is no reason not to buy them. Really looking forward to wearing them soon.

Sinclair Edwardian Club Collar Shirt (White)
Very good quality, nice and breezy and handy for summer. And the collar style makes it versatile, so you're paying for two different shirts in one. It's quite baggy around the stomach but a waistcoat takes care of that. I ordered 2XL and it fits me perfectly, which is pretty good for something I bought online. With the collars starched up, I think it probably looks best with a deluxe western-style bowtie or a cravat.

This shirt fit well, was a basic style that covers many eras, the cost was right, the sleeves and cuffs were decent. I may get another as a spare. If you are tall, as I am, make sure you note that somewhere on the form. I did, and was rewarded with the longer fit at the waist...

Disappointed in collar
The shirt quality is excellent. But I am disappointed in the color. I bought this one to use both collar up and collar down. It does not look that great collar up -- I may try heavy starch on that to get it stiffer. Or I may get a different shirt that is designed to be always collar up. I use this when I drive a horse-drawn carriage and the collar is going to have to stay up while I am driving.

Wonderful
This shirt was perfect for our 1869 Christmas Eve re-enactment. We ordered according to the size chart and the fit was overall very good with the neck just being a tad tight (my husband works out and has broad shoulders). But I sew and there was plenty of room to move out the top button which made it perfect. Plus shipping was insanely fast and both this shirt and a separate vest order were shipped on a hanger and bagged. For the price we paid, I never expected such great service!

Great shirt that works well with slightly earlier period clothing. Lace cuffs are great peeking out from an 18th century style coat. Jabot took a little figuring out but once attachment system was understood, no problems.

Just what I needed
I was looking for an appropriate shirt to wear with my Heroes of 76 uniform. This one fits the bill with a fancy addition. The shirt fits nicely and the jabot is easy putting on and taking off. Looks real nice with my uniform. Thank you!

Completely Authentic
This shirt is very well stitched and constructed. The sleeves have ample extra fabric for both the width and length, as would be appropriate for this style, and the lace is a decent length as well so that it would extend beyond the cuffs of a frock coat style. Although not made of natural fibers, the rayon fabric is soft and not too heavy and is comfortable to wear. This shirt could also pass for a late 17th early 18th-century formal shirt, with a different jabot. Highly recommended.

Great shirt!
Bought this to pair with Historical Emporium's red and black Cavalier vest and it works perfectly. Love the shirt. Only minor critical comment is that I would have preferred a little less lace on the cuffs. However, that's just my personal opinion, and I would still give the shirt five stars. Well made and drapes well on the body. It does the job.

Nice shirt
I was happy with the product. I ordered the s/m size and I am 5'9" and 175 lbs and thought it fit well. Wish it was cotton though.

way too small
The cut of this shirt is way too small! I normally wear an XL (17 inch neck) and according to the size chart that is what I should order. when it arrived, I couldn't even get the collar ends within an inch of each other. The shoulders and sleeves were small too. I returned it for an XXL. when it arrived again I was excited even though the shirt was now $10 more that I had paid due to the return, but my costume would be complete. Yet again the collar was small. This time the ends did touch each other so I had to have the collar buttons moved to the very ends ($15 at the dry cleaners for the job) and use collar button extenders ($20 on Amazon) to be able to wear the shirt. Per the sizing chart the collar should have been a 17/17.5 but the shop that did the button repair said that it was cut to a 16.5 inch collar. I ended up paying a total of $105. 00 for a shirt that was advertised as $69. Not a good monetary choice on my part

Beautiful
I ordered two shirts from Historical Emporium for a musical that I am designing costumes for. I decided that the other one met my needs better and returned the Marcus Regency shirt. This shirt is great and is a wonderful example of a Regency era shirt complete with removable jabot.

A vintage piece for a modern touch...
I actually purchased this shirt as a piece for a Prince costume as it very closely resembled the shirt he wore in Purple Rain..... there are some minute differences but it was not originally designed for that purpose so that's ok. Under purple trench coat, it fits the look perfectly! Very happy with it.

More than just a puffy shirt!
Historical Emporium is our go-to resource whenever we need well made, period appropriate costumes for our local theater company. Unlike most online resources, if I submit a 'special instruction' note upon ordering, someone actually reads it and responds with an answer immediately! They have shipped immediately when the item is in stock, have offered great options when there are challenges but always delivered on whatever solution that is agreed. The product quality is superb - worth the price since they wash, wear and last well. We bought the Bard shirt for our tall, long armed Shakespearean actor (who happens to be my son!) and their sizing and descriptions are actually accurate - this in NOT the case with other suppliers! It came as quickly as I needed it - and as promised and was so fantastic, we actually bought another that likewise arrived quickly enough for use during the show run. Terrific! We are very satisfied customers and recommend them highly.

Raved
Wore for a special retirement, part of which tied into the Seinfeld puffy shirt episode. Was raved over. The size xl sleeves managed to cover my arms, but would have preferred a long or tall xl.

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

Awesome
I my gosh, material was soft and comfortable, very nice, If I had any decision in manufacturing of shirt The only thing is that you have to keep adjusting The elastic in the arms, cause they keep trying To cut off circulation, not good, but all in all shirt was the bomb. Good day

so happy i found your site
I'm giving my recent purchase of the Bard Shirt 5 stars. It's the best quality and most authentic version i've seen and have been looking for quite some time. I'm so happy with my purchase and price was more than fair and it was shipped immediately. I will absolutely be referring this site to others as well as will be shopping here again and often. Thank you.

Almost perfect
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.
