Bigger is Better, Capes are Warm
This is a cape, and some might not understand what that means when they purchase, because most folks in the U.S. don't go about wearing capes often. Good wool, good liner, very warm, good design. It is a "one size fits most," garment. People who are less than 5 feet tall will probably find this coat too long (although it can be tailored). It is much bigger than I thought that it would be. The benefit is that it will fit over whatever you are wearing. It will fit over and protect/conceal your clothes, baby, lap dog, armour, weapons, tools, backpack (but maybe not all at once its not totally Mary Poppins.) It will also make a general purpose blanket if you are trapped in the cold somewhere. I recommend it. Capes for everyone.

Beautiful! Classic appearance; Well made; performs well even while wearing a suit beneath the cloak. Both fantasy and vintage style mixed together. Exactly what I ordered; exactly what I imaged.

Well made wool cape coat
I bought the black...I normally wear a large...the Cape fit extremely well....very long..a about 3 to 4 inches above the ankles... that's exactly what I wanted...great for a person who likes or needs to wear suits to work..this fits perfectly over jacket and does not make bullkie like regular long wool dress coats. The delivery was also faster than I expected...overall, if you are on the market for a formal wool cape like you see in the picture, then this is for you.. I would say this coat will fit from a large to an xlarge... don't know beyond that or below for a medium might be too big... that's my perception guys as I said I am large..and I could see someone a little heavier than me (5'9 190lbs.) Fitting into this because it is a cape which allows for more space inside

High Quality Garment
This cape is quite stunning. I previously purchased the Inverness Ulster in tan herringbone, and I am just as happy with this. I will need to have this one shortened slightly, but that is due to my lack of height, not to the product. Historical Emporium is a class act through and through.

Button hole for the top button is not in the right place causing a wrinkle , because the next button hole is too close to the top one. I'll have to have it fixed here. Other than that I have enjoyed wearing it.

Perfect Dickens Cape
I've had my eye on this Inverness Cape for some time and finally purchased it to wear at Dickens on the Strand in Galveston Texas. The event was held this past weekend and I couldn't be happier with how the cape fit, looked and performed! I'm six foot tall and the cape is a perfect length for me. It's made of weighty 100% wool with a nice satin lining and is period correct in every respect. The Cape is very well styled and toasty warm. It also has two generously sized pockets which came in very handy. A PERFECT winter weather garment addition to my Regency/Victorian wardrobe. I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase!!!

Cloaked in Mystery
Ever since I was a kid, I have LOVED this look in film. I kept watching this item over the past two years and finally just ordered the darn thing...lol. SO GLAD I DID! It is exactly what I was expecting and looking for. It's a heavy weight, but that's OK, it's rare that you not only get "what" you paid for but MORE than you paid for, but this is one of those purchases. It just sets that air of mystery I've always loved about this look. BRAVO, Historical Emporium. You didn't just "meet" expectations -- you EXCEEDED them with this item!

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.

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.

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.

Best. Overcoat. Ever.
Possibly the favorite item I've ordered from Historical Emporium so far, this is a strong, sturdy, and warm overcoat with great style. Definitely draws attention, but doesn't look like a cheap costume coat at all. Warm, practical, and effective... kept me comfortable and dry on a recent boat tour of Prince William Sound, Alaska.

Great coat if a bit large
This almost exactly as advertised. It looks great. I got the XL/2XL and it's a bit big on me (6'3", 250 lbs.) but I put a suit coat on underneath it and that halped a bit. I will probably still have to have the sleeves taken in a bit. The workmanship on it seems very well done. You will have to iron or steam it to get the wrinkles out. A good value, in my opinion.

This is a wonderful item, very high quality. Looks great. I am normally a medium, but I opted for the small and it was a good choice. A generous cut and will fit well over suits, evening wear, heavy sweaters....perfect for a stroll across the Moors! Historical Emporium is a class act!

Good raw material
The coat is a little long, but the hem can be picked up. I am installing five buttons and button holes on the front of the cape because the wind tends to catch the cape and blow it around.

Wonderful Coat
I LOVE this coat. I purchased the coat back in the middle of September and have delayed the review until the weather was cool enough to give it a good wearing. I already own the Inverness cape in black in 100% wool and have given it a wonderful review. At the time, I mused that it would be nice if it were offered in other colors--even perhaps a nice tweed. So, when Historical Emporium unveiled their additions to their Inverness line, I was delighted. At the time of order, I felt a little trepidation. I was worried that this version was not 100% wool. I am delighted to report that my fears were baseless. The fabric has a very nice feel, similar to a soft, heavy cotton. The coat is a good weight and ideal for cool weather and roomy enough to layer underneath for cold weather. It is not as warm as the 100% wool version, but that's easily worked around. I have received several compliments on it. (I wear my Historical Emporium clothing as part of my everyday wardrobe). I am 6'1" and about 200lbs; the M/L fits me very well with room for a bulky sweater or thick sports-coat/frock-coat underneath. I love this coat and would highly recommend it. Its also a wonderful value.

Very Nice!
I go to a lot of opera and symphony concerts, at least I did before COVID. It is a fine garment, but you will get a few looks and maybe some comments. I'm okay with that. The quality is good, even if the garment is not as heavy as some fine coats - especially the lining is a bit thin. That is a function of the price, which is inexpensive for this kind of coat. It is okay for three seasons (in Calgary Canada) and I've actually got the herringbone version for colder weather. The fit is great for me - xl-2x for me at 6'2" and 250 lbs. - I can wear it with a waistcoat or with a full dress coat. I love dressing in Victorian style - if you are okay with being noticed, this is the coat for you!

Great coat. Great fit
I'm a little leery of ordering clothing online. I'm a big guy and have trouble getting things to fit, especially outerwear. I've wanted a long coat for a long time, but could never find one in my size. When I ordered the Inverness coat, my main thought was "Please let it fit" When I opened the box and examined the coat, I was impressed with the quality of the materials and construction, this is garment that could last a lifetime. Then I tried it on. Not only did it fit, but it was roomy enough to wear a full suit underneath, as I imagine a gentleman of the time would do. I am 100% satisfied with this item and would gladly recommend it to anyone.

This coat is world-class. It is so elegant. The one problem I had was the lining. Right out of the box it ripped, and I had to sew it. However, my impression is that the coat is stunning. One word of advice, order a size smaller than you normally wear, it is big!

Classy Protection
If you have to venture out in inclement weather for a formal event in a suit this is the coat for you. It splendidly covers even a tuxedo with tails and does so with a touch of old world genteel fashion without sacrificing serviceability. One recommendation I do make is that you get this garment rainproofed by your local dry cleaner.

Excellent Product/Excellent Service
I am a priest and I sometimes wear a cassock, usually on formal and semi-formal occasions. Rarely do overcoats look good with a cassock - in either length or style of cut. The Inverness Dress Coat is the answer! I'm shorter than the model, so the coat nearly covers the cassock. Also the style better melds with the cassock, especially with the cape. This is true of ecclesiastical head wear as well. The Inverness Dress Coat even makes a Canterbury Cap look good. After taking my measurements I submitted them with a question through the website. The response was quick and reliable. I bought the coat knowing the sleeves would have to be hemmed. Otherwise the fit around the chest and shoulders is perfect. The construction of the coat appears to be excellent. The only negative is that the lining for the pockets feels very thin. Not a place to store keys. Overall, though, I'm extremely pleased.

A little big, but not a problem
Greatly anticipated this product. I ordered the Small and it fit on the shoulders, but given I'm 5'6 with a 36 inch chest, it was a little big for the rest. Some hemming of the skirt, sleeves, and cape will do the trick though for a better fit. This will come in handy for the winter, as well as figures like Poe and Professor Fate.

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.

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!

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.
