Wyatt Stripe Shirt
This is my favorite shirt and it is a unique one. I''ve received more comments on this shirt than any. It is a good Sunday church shirt as well as a dinner on Saturday night shirt. It is also a head turner in restaurants. Beautiful shirt.

Stays tucked in
I wore this shirt to work the other day and got compliments on it. I'm a little overweight, so it's good to have a shirt that won't come untucked. Plus, I like the style.

This is a very nice looking shirt. Very classy. I also have the white on black version of this shirt as well. You'll look very sharp wearing this Bad Boy. The only regret I have with this shirt is how thin the material is.

I would normally wear XL to get the neck closure but wear L if I didn't need the collar to be fastened. These shirts are generously cut (but not too big) so I can get a great fitting shirt in size L that still buttons up at the neck comfortably. Good quality as well.

Great Shirt
I am replacing the first one I got. Had it for 5 yrs and wore it quite often. I actually wore it out. So I figured I needed to replace it, before they stop making it. Great shirt.

worthless collar
The fabric pattern looks attractive and authentic. The background color is arctic white, which is a hard color for most people to wear and is not really authentic for the period. The shirt features a left breast pocket. To the best of my knowledge, shirts from the late 1800s did not have pockets. I returned the shirt because the collar is about one-half inch too short in height to wear any sort of cravat or neck-tie with. Even with the narrow band on the "Satin-Puff" necktie, the collar does not look right or work well on a dress shirt. I could live with the bright white color--but not the short collar.

Had to wait until my size was in stock, didn't care for that too much. Shirt arrived in fine condition and am now more than pleased. I will be wearing it tomorrow under a Calvin Klein two piece charcoal suit. It will look smashing. Historical needs to calculate for millennial customers in terms of stocking tall sizes. You have fans that are not short, burly or over 60 Altogether a solid four

O.C. Smith Shirt - Black
Love this shirt! And love the service/help I received while ordering it. The only thing I can say is that finding the right size took a little trial and error. I'm 'right between' a Large and a Medium on their sizing chart. I went with a Large with the idea of 'better too big then too small'. Typically a safe choice, but I ended up exchangeing the shirt for a Medium. (just something to consider if you are find yourself in the same situation) All 'sizing issues' aside, love the shirt, and love the silver buttons! Now I'm just looking for other reasons to wear it!!

The shirt is well made and appears exactly as shown. The shipping was swift and there were no delays. My only issue was that we followed the sizing chart for this item and it is way too big for my husband. While the smaller sizes may be more standard, be aware that the XL and larger are Quite large; so it loses a star. Unfortunately we did not have time to exchange it for another size due to the date of our event.

This is a well constructed shirt. The only reason it does not get five stars is, the button holes need to be a little smaller for use with the kind of button the shirt come with.

Nice Quality shirt
I have this shirt in white and black both shirts are of quality material (dress shirt). I wear these for cowboy action shooting, the white one had hot brown gun powder stains on the arm and sleeve, these washed out with shout scrub and a tooth brush and it looks like new.

well now---
I like the shirt and the quality, I find that H E makes good quality shirts, worth the money. I was very disappointed tot see that this one was made in China. Seriously? China. I like to support small, local companies that make stuff in the US and support local workers, but this seems to no longer apply to you. If you moved to China why didn't the price of the shirt come down? Not happy. Editor's Note - Several years ago, the manufacturer switched to overseas production. The product description has been updated to make this clear.

Too cool!
This shirt just blows me away! Superb quality, fit and styling. It's very unusual to wear this style these days, but I personally love it. It looks great with all my waistcoats (also purchased here) and turns heads wherever I go. Thank you, Historical Emporium, for offering such fine garments, and keeping Victorian-era style alive and well!

You can not go wrong with this shirt. Clothing from Gentlemen's Emporium has been chosen as the staple of my everyday wear and this quality shirt with a stunning look is one of my favorites. This opinion is not just mine, the Earp shirt brings in great comments from a lot of people. Because the shirt has the band style collar with a top fastening stud, the four available collars can be used with the shirt providing a wide range of looks. The fit is perfect, the craftsmanship top notch, making this a value buy.

Exceptional Service
About 7 years ago we started ordering the 1880"s style shirts and blouses from Gentlemans Emporium. My husband sings on stage most every weekend and I like the compliments we get on our clothes. We also got almost All of the matching shirts and blouses as well as the vests. We LOVE the old fashioned clothing and have never once been disappointed. The service has been exceptional for us. We;ve tried at a number of other places to get the clothing, but the service and attitude are not the same as this Historical Emporium/Gentlemans Emporium. Quick and sincere service with a smile. Thank You for being there for us. Richard and Linda

Both the Earp and the Wyatt shirts are spindid...
Once again the sizes are dead on and material is one of the most comfortable to wear. Giving a crisp look but soft against the skin. breathable fabric is never hot and that is a plus in Florida. Beautiful print makes this a keeper for casual and dress alike.

I am all set for the first day of class, each semester, for the rest of my life. The shirt speaks for me. It says,"slap leather, kids. Draw your calculators and put 'em in radian mode." Good fit, even the arm lengths are right on. I am totally JACKED.

Cavalry Bib Shirt
A very nice, well constructed shirt that is comfortable to wear and presents a striking appearance. I would be tempted to wear shirts like this on an everyday basis, but the style would not be appropriate in my work place. It is a real nice shirt for casual wear and with other period clothes to step back into the late 1800's.

My husband wanted something a little different than the same ole collared white dress shirt. He really likes the style and fit of this shirt. To this point he has only tried it on. It has not been washed or worn but from what we have seen so far I am confidant that we will remain satisfied with this purchase.

The White Gambler Dress Shirt was an excellent choice for me because I can dress it with my wranglers or dress slacks. I loved it so much I ordered the Black one. They are a little more expensive but well worth it. I really appreciate the tall sizes, Thank You. The styling is unique and craftsmanship excellent. The Gents of yesteryears really knew how to dress.

The Perfect Tuxedo Shirt.
If you are looking for an alternative to the standard bow tie look while wearing formal attire, this is IT!!! The band collar with the elegant silver stud at the center is about as good as it gets, and the finely sewn pleats down the front make this a "killer" evening shirt to wear with a tux. Men beware, the ladies will heartily approve. If you are ready for a showstopper experience at your next formal occasion, this shirt is for you. Also the pristine white, crisp color makes any dinner jacket look superlative, and you will be the envy of the party.

I bought this shirt to go with a black jacket and pants to wear at my nieces wedding. Several people complimented me on the shirt. In all modesty, I made this shirt look GOOD! Actually the opposite is more truthful. Very impressed with the workmanship and that it's MADE IN THE USA.

Gambler Dress Shirt
I have come to expect better from Wah Maker. Every one of the buttons were loose. One of the cuff buttons actually fell off. The others were only secured by a couple of threads and had to be re sewn. There were loose threads hanging from the seams that had to be clipped. After repairs, the shirt is OK. For the cost of the shirt, repairs should not be required before the shirt is worn.

Gambler Shirt
I purchased this and the pleated shirt at the same time. They are essentially the same shirt, which I couldn't tell from the photographs. One has the pleats sewn down, one does not. One has a loop at the back neck to hold a tie in place, one does not. They are both bibfront styles and would be indistiguishable to anyone but the wearer. They are both very nice shirts. I have sewn buttons onto the back neck band for detachable collars. Since they close with a stud on the front, they work quite well. The cut is accurate and ample.

Neck size is good, Sleeves length is good. However, I had to have 4" tailored off both sides as I'm not that big rounded and you don" carry a slim Fit. Sure wish you did, I'd buy more from you but cost too much to have sized down

lovely shirt. needed sleeve length altered, but that's done... like the cut. like the fabric weave. love the buttons. I wish there were sleeve lengths offered. this shirt was bought by the neck size, so the body of the shirt and the sleeve length were big/long.

A Stylish Shirt
This shirt was purchased to wear with a frock coat, cravat, and waistcoat to the Dickens Christmas Faire in San Francisco. I am not a standard letter size, so the shirt was a bit large on me, but it certainly was exactly the size indicated in the product description. The workmanship was of good quality and the materials were appropriate for a dress shirt. While I normally don't care for metallic buttons (even on modern blazers) the pattern on this shirt's buttons was unobtrusive and did not clash with the larger buttons on the frock coat: worn together it was a bit more Western-style than Dickensian-era, but the combination worked well together. For a Dickensian or Victorian-era shirt, the collar would benefit from being about 1/2 or 3/4 inch taller, but that is a very minor detail. The description and photographs of the product were accurate, relieving a general concern about buying clothing online without try-on in a fitting room.

Wicked Nice
You can't see it in the pictures, but it has stripes and it's a very light material and doesn't shrink easily. I ordered the 3x tall and it's freakin' HUGE! I thought it would run a bit small like the vests and pants. I was dead wrong. Buy the size you normally wear. It's a great shirt for hot summer events as it breathes easily. Great buy!

Beautiful Shirt!!!
I have wanted a high-collar band dress shirt for a long time for use as an alternative to wearing a tie during formal evenings, and dinners. This shirt is an excellent answer to my need. The pictures of the shirt are presented in such a way that they are unable to show the true beauty of the item, and the silver buttons are intricate and striking. The fit is perfect and is more than I had hoped for, and the satin tone-on-tone material is a showstopper. This looker has garnered many head-turns during the couple of times that I have already worn it, and I am of a mind to buy another one just in case an unforeseen circumstance arises.

O.C. Smith Shirt
This is a beautiful shirt. The picture doesn't do it justice b/c it doesn't show the subtle pattern in the fabric of the shirt. Very classy, elegant shirt that looks great by itself or with a dressy vest. I ordered a size smaller for the Hub since I was worried that it would run too large like the Scully shirts. The size smaller fits great & has long enough sleeves for a long-armed guy. A heads up--it's not a "true" white as compared to the Fairlawn shirt. It is a slightly ivory color. We love it.

O.C. Smith shirt
This is a well-made shirt and is comfortable. However, it is 100% cotton, which makes it authentic, but also makes it very hard to keep wrinkle-free. Proper use of our iron and ironing board failed to get all the wrinkles out. I wish a few threads of polyester could have been woven in.
