Perfect for a beach costume
We were in Mexico and I didn't want a typical swim shirt. Why not make a statement. This was spot on and held up in the pool and the sun. The only issue was the younger crowd thought I was Waldo! I should've gotten the blue one also. Would've rocked it.

Just what I was looking for
This outfit is for our production of the Addams Family musical. This was the only place that I found this outfit for Uncle Fester .It is very good quality and arrived neatly packaged. I will definitely check this site again for items I need for future shows.

Chaz says Chez Cool!
As a washed up 90's celebrity, it's important to stay relevant with the young kids these days. I'm thankful Historical Emporium provides such sick poolwear for me to subtly say "Look at me! I'm an attention whore!" Pro tip: buy the red AND the blue so you can mix and match! My only regret is shaving my handlebar mustache before summer. Can't wait to take a deeper dive into the Historical Emporium catalog for more sweet duds! PS: I'm paying a fashion video shoot at my new pool. Not sure if you provide discount codes but it's be happy to plug H.E.

Nice suit
I'm a professional Santa and I bought this for a beach vacation this year. Overall I like the product. It fits true to size, looks great, and my XXL was roomy enough for my ample Santa stomach. The fabric is a bit sheer, so I also bought (elsewhere) red underpants and undershirt. The only criticism I have is that the pants have a very low-rise waist, so it rides like old hip-hugger jeans. However, the top comes down to mid-thigh so the waist is well covered... it just feels a bit uncomfortably low. But I'm old, so what I find uncomfortable you may not. Overall very glad I found this.

It fits
I have a need for this suit for a Christmas in July event in Florida. It will be at a splash pad and with the temperatures here Iím going to enjoy just sitting in the water but all hopes are it will be a big hit. I washed it per directions let it hang up to dry and it is colorfast.

This fit fairly well, and as someone who is extremely sensitive to the sun, I always burn, this was actually a perfect swim suit. Plus every thinks it looks awesome

Good Swim Suit
I absolutely love wearing this. Its a timeless look that keeps me comfy in the sun. My partner got one where the top matches and has the old sailor blue shorts and she looks 10/10 while wearing them. We look good side by side. The material of the shirt doesn't just stick to you while in the water. It flows and is comfy the entire time. I ordered a large and its super comfy, I normally wear shirts between size M and L.

Great for my Polar Bear Plunge
I bought this suit last year I figured since I was doing my first Polar Bear Plunge I might as well do it in style. I wore it again this year and it made the online photos done my our local newspaper.

Good enough
Definitely a very flimsy material, which at the price point should be a little hardier. Still, very comfortable and light to wear, and it is sure to turn heads everywhere

I love it, except there is no difference between the navy blue and the black. Now I wish I chose the red.

We used this for a production of "The Addams Family," for Fester to wear while wooing the Moon. I dyed the white stripes light blue, to excellent effect.

Material Choice
Product looks exactly like we thought it would; however, I was expecting it to be cotton and not polyester. I assumed the male costume would be cotton considering the female costume was made of cotton.

The material feels great, it feels like it'll last me for a long time with regular use. I'm 6'0 ft 290ish and the 2xl fit perfectly. I've gotten a lot of compliments for the bathing suit. I highly recommend

Mens 1900's bathing suit - navy / white
I was somewhat cautious when buying this product as there appeared to be some critical feedback in earlier reviews, suggesting poor quality, "costume" clothing, no elastic tie to pants, etc.. The item I received was none of these! The quality is great, the navy / white colour is fine (my colleagues have the other colours for an upcoming event), there is an elastic tie in the pants. I did order a size up as I wanted a relaxed fit to suit the style of the period (and my shape!). It is an excellent outcome for myself.

overall OK
overall, this garment is OK for the price. however, when I was taking it off after putting it on for the first time, the stitching around the neck pulled out. so either I needed to get once size larger (evern though the size I purchased fit fine), there is not much stretch or "give" so it almost ripped taking it off.

Just what I needed.
I'm a pastor and the First Sunday in May following Easter we celebrate "Holy Humor Sunday." For several years I have dressed up as Freddie The Freeloader or Clem Kadiddlehopper who are two of my most favorite Red Skelton characters. This year the title of my sermon was "Have You Taken The Plunge" and the idea came to me to dress up as a 1890's gentleman swimmer. I couldn't go the one piece tog but the one I ordered from you was perfect

Blue looks like black
Blue is a very deep navy blue that is almost black. Suit looks more like a prison costume.

Looks good, feels odd
It looks the part from a distance, but the material is quite light and stretchy which feels inauthentic. I wish it were more like a heavier natural fiber.

Donít believe the sizing chart!
This is sold as a package, and the top piece doesnít match the trunks- it appears to be several sizes too large. They donít match up. I am a normal sized person and the trunks fit me. Also, the trunks are not bathing trunks, just shorts. There is no support. I would have gladly exchanged the top for one that fits, but they wonít separate the package. Even more importantly, they donít cover the return shipping. Be wary of this business. It doesnít sound like they are standing behind their product as they claim.

Retro bathing suit
I love my classic bathing suit, throwback to the early 20th century. All things come back in style. I usually wear an XL however your sizing chart was right on the money and the L is prefect.
