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.

Historical Emporium makes the finest Victorian and Edwardian style garments I've seen. This coat is no different. Their customer service is top notch as well. I've ordered from them in the past and look forward to ordering more from them in the future when finances permit.

This Coat Is The Real Deal!
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.

However, it wasn't quite what I wanted, and the company was very good to exchange it for another. Very polite, and efficient in getting me a new product that fit better what I wanted...

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.

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.

Better than I anticipated
After months of looking, I took the leap of faith and ordered the jacket. When it arrived, I was immediately pleased with the quality and overall look of the jacket. Unfortunately, it was too large. This led me to place an order for a smaller size (holding on to the first one as a comparison before sending one back). NOTE: I ordered the M/L, but in the end I kept the S. As noted in the description they do come large, so a purchaser needs to take that into account. But, here's another thing that caught me off guard...it was much longer than I anticipated. Having looked at the images, I expected the coat to stop just below the knees; however, it went to the top of my feet (the M/L size). In speaking with their Customer Service Team, apparently the models used for the photographs are slightly taller than me. I was told they were well over 6 feet, and I am merely 5-9...as such, it did run long on me. Now, when I got the S size, it was slightly shorter on me, but still longer than I anticipated. BUT THIS DID NOT DISCOURAGE MY PURCHASE. This jacket is awesome! It feels and looks great. I just decided to take it to someone for a minor alteration on the length. Some people might not like that as an option, but let me tell you, the jacket is worth the alteration. I've not found one any place else that looked as great or was made to this quality. So, I was not about to send it back simply because I was vertically challenged (as compared to the models). That's been...

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!

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.

Coburn coat
I like it a lot. It fits great, even over a sport coat. I wore it to the last meeting of the Sherlock Holmes Society. I have a couple of minor complaints, however. First, there should be some way of fixing the cape together at the front. I wore the coat in windy conditions, and the cape kept blowing over my head like a hood. I felt like the Grim Reaper. Even in a mild wind the cape is unstable. Secondly, the cotton lining of the sleeves offers a lot of resistance when you put your arm through the sleeves. You really have to push, and the cuffs of your shirtsleeves wind up half way up your forearm where they are tight and uncomfortable. Sleeves should be lined with rayon or something offering less friction. Third, I don't like the fabric-covered buttons. They don't push through the button holes as easily as buttons made of other materials, and I can see that they are going to fall off at some point.

This is truly...a "great coat." I am very impressed with the quality of this coat. It does run on the large side so I would order the next size down from your normal coat size. Also, it is wool...so it is somewhat heavy, but very stylish and will work perfectly for the use I have planned for mine in a new show I'm putting together. Highly recommended...

Almost perfect
Style, fit, and finish of this coat are all excellent. My minor quibbles are as follows: - I found, as did others, that the pockets were somewhat under-sized. My size medium hands barely fit in them. - The wool could be a tad thicker. If it was, this would make a rather good daily wear Fall/Winter coat. - The buttons could be a might more robust. They are of rather light construction. All-in-all it's an excellent coat though.

Amazing quality
This coat, while being wonderfully warm, is light enough to wear over a suit without adding uncomfortable weight! The only possible future issue might be the fabric covering the buttons wearing off from repeated use. Easily repaired, though! I share this because I plan on getting much use from this coat! Too bad there isn't an increase in men dressing like gentlemen!

Perfect for Fred, Scrooge's Nephew
This coat was purchased for San Jose Youth Shakespeare's production of A Christmas Carol. The smallest size was a size too large for the young man playing Fred. We ordered it anyway figuring that the cape would hide it. We removed the small belt in the back (it hit him totally wrong) and the coat was perfect.

so so great coat
The picture of this coat is truly awesome! The fit is exactly as I had hoped and I couldn't be happier with that. The style is nice, and I've gotten a lot of compliments on it. There are a few minor things I would do to improve that, such as having a tie on the front of the cowl, which was common when these coats were popular (really helps on windy days), and I would make the outside pockets big enough to actually fit a glove in each one. The problems are with the workmanship on this. When I was talking with a friend, he said that it's a pretty good price for a costume piece. I don't usually buy things just for costume, and was looking at this or a modern overcoat in a local store. Since the price for this was only a little higher, I chose this. I would have been happier with the one from the store. This coat is definitely for costume purposes only! The main material is so thin that I can see through it. The collar and pocket tabs are of really poor quality and are already worn out. And I've only owned the coat for a few short weeks. The buttons have started falling off (and it fits me a little loosely, which I wanted). And these buttons are also wearing out! I've never seen a button do that. The inside liner only covers the top half of the coat, which a proper one doesn't do (it would cover all the way down). I will be taking this coat and having someone make me one of a similar design with decent materials, which this one is not made with. And it'll probably cost me...

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!!!

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!

This a great cape. Warm and comfortable to wear over your suit or frock coat etc. It is made of quality wool and fall nicely over your shoulders :) Recommend it highly. E. Spear

Absolutely perfect.
This cape is far better than I could have ever dreamed. It is heavy, warm, and incredibly well made. The pockets are very deep and the material is quite soft for wool. It has turned many heads walking through town already. I am never taking this thing off.

Delightful
Lots of wool! Weighs as much as my full length leather duster. First outing to the Symphony on a cold and drizzly night caused several compliments and one fellow wanting to know where one buys such things. Warm, comfortable and simply delightful; recommended!

Nice Cloak
A nice cloak...very heavy weight. Small neck when buttoned and very thin lining in pockets...would not trust with keys or cell phone.

Always wanted one of these
I've had my Inverness cloak for about a month and am very pleased with it. Large enough to wear a heavier coat underneath if needed. This cloak is the "perfect" garment for me in the winter when I want to sit outside on the porch or go for short walks around the property. Not too heavy and large enough to wrap around for warmth or to allow air in to cool off.

Great Cape
This cape is actually better than described, with very nice tweed fabric and well-sewn shape. If the fabric was any thicker, the cape would probably be too heavy to wear. As mentioned in the description, they do run large. I ordered a "M/L" size, and it is almost too big. I am usually a 46-48 inch chest for jackets and almost 6 feet tall, and I'm glad I did not order a "L/XL." A really well built cape, that I will put to work in cold, wet weather.

Roomy and Characterful
If you want a coat that attracts attention, this is it. There is much material (and thus much room) in the coat underneath. so it works with just a vest, or a full frock coat. The material is a medium weight - if it was heavier the coat would weigh too much to carry around. I like the material - not a super quality but close enough to a fine wool to pass, and it seems sturdy enough for good service. Be careful on a windy day - the cape can blow around.

A wonderful costume piece
I love the coat, it goes well with one of the characters I bring to life, even just for the fun of it.

Excellent product
This is a top quality coat and quite a value. I am 6' 1", around 230 lbs and the Medium/Large is just right for me (just like the sizing chart indicated). This is clearly a genuine coat for outdoor wear. Fine craftsmanship and quality material. A little heavier than I anticipated, but perfect weight for fall and winter wear. I would recommend to anyone.

Excellent product
My great fear was that this would be made from a cheaper, "costume-weight" fabric. When the small box arrived, my heart sank. I opened it up and could not believe how much coat you could get into such a small box! This is a real, outdoor-worthy winter overcoat for almost every locale. (I wouldn't warrant it for Chicago in below-zero January, but that's a whole different standard of human tolerance and garment expectations.) This is a very handsome coat with a most subtle gray herringbone pattern to the fabric. They do run Full and LONG - which I like, but others may want to adjust their order as some here have indicated in their comments. Full-figured fellows will want to stick with the larger sizes. Thanks for a great internet shopping experience.

Very nice, authentice styling, runs large
This a really nice coat, it is not some cheap thrown together from overseas. It is Huge but it is designed that way to go over jackets etc. am border line L and XL. I first tried a XL and it was swimming on me. The large was a better fit if wearing alone. Historical Emporium is a very good seller, they go out of their way to make things right.

Excellent if excessive
I'm very happy with the color, length, and the warmth of this coat. It could easily serve as winter wear, and the lining makes sliding in or out of it a breeze. Being a medium, I ordered the M/L size; I would strongly recommend that these be split up in the future. The coat is very generously cut, to the point of being cumbersome when trying to get in or out of a vehicle, and the sleeves extended almost past my thumb.

Beautifully made
This coat/cloak is beautifully made and elegantly cut. I'll likely be using it as one of my winter coats, in conjunction with a cardigan.

An Amazing Coat
The workmanship of this coat is amazing. It is stunning! But best of all, the customer support was fabulous. I bought this coat for my wife, and while ordering a size bigger than she told me she was, the coat was still too small for her. I called and was presently surprised by the customer service. I was able to return the coat for the right size, (2 sizes up!).

Well Made!
This is a extremely well made coat. Good for mildly chilly weather, its a great Fall and costume coat. Only wished they made it bigger like the frock coats.

Lovely coat
Excellently put together. The seams are clean and the material is quality. I wore it out to the mall and got countless compliments. The fit was perfect. Just follow the size chart. There are decorative buttons on the shoulders that I didn't love, but they were easy to remove with some scissors (no damage done to the coat. Just pull the extra thread it leaves behind and they come right out without leaving a hole)

Inverness Coat
I absolutely love this coat, however, it is either cut very small or I have gained a bit of weight, as it is too small and I was unable to wear it to the event I planned to attend. Unfortunately, I cannot return it because it arrived quite wrinkled and I had to have it cleaned. So, I am hoping that somehow I will lose enough weight to fit into it soon.

Pure class
I really love the coat. I wish it were a little thicker for the winter months but for fall and weather up to about 40 degrees, it should be perfect. Love the button detail and the way it stands out. Subtle Victorian beauty!!! I am so glad I took the large. I am not big, but I do have wider shoulders and the size Large is good. I wish things were made with the wider shoulder for us who have them. The large is good, however about an inch on either side more, would have been even better. No worries, its worth it...
