Awesome
Beautiful shirt. Sewn well. Great lace. Fits well. Too long,I wish I could tuck it in my pants. Long like a nightshirt but certainly not one. Looks great w a captains coat,and your black gloves. Wore a top hat w it.

Everything it looks to be. Would be nice though, if a stronger material could be added to reinforce the collar and help it hold its shape better.

Bellamy shirt
I'm a 180 pound, tall woman who bought this shirt in a large to wear with my jacket and Victorian skirt. I could have done better with a medium. The sleeves are very long. I love the quality and the shirt looks perfect underneath my jacket.

Perfect match.
I ordered this shirt in combination with other items for a party costume. I ordered a 2x even though I am a 1x. This was a good decision as the shirt fit perfectly. The scent out of the bag as unique but not unpleasant. After washing and ironing the shirt looked better than before. This shirt can be used for anything from baroque to pirate! Thank you for a great product.

Pure 18th Century!
This looks like something out of Errol Flynn's "Sea Hawk" wardrobe! Great fit and a ton of attitude. You can tuck the lace up into the cuff for less frill and the jabot is removable as well so you've got some flexibility with the look! Now ...... where'd the rum go??

Very happy with the quality of this shirt. The material is comfortable and it really looks "the part." I especially loved the frilly lace at the bottom of the sleeves. There's an elastic material in there that allows you to easily move the sleeves around to your liking.

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

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.

We are very happy with all the things that we ordered and will order some more items soon. We have ordered form other sites and will never go back to those sites.

Superb!
Once again, I am simply delighted by the superior quality of this item, its authentic styling and true to size fit. It's also quite stylish and damned comfortable, to boot. I've only one, eensy problem with the shirts available here: I love french cuffs, and they simply aren't available on many of the shirts. You might want to seriously consider asking your manufacturer to offer them. Otherwise? Fine garment!

Love the Look!
If you love the look of the Wild, Wild West, you will absolutely love the Coulter Shirt. This shirt has the perfect collar for a hand-tied bow or string tie. It is comfortable to wear and can go well with any solid-colored vest. The fit is fantastic! Best of all, it does not need dry cleaning. Machine wash in cold water and hang to dry for best results.

I wear these shirts with the Chadwick waistcoat over the top. The shirts fit very well, and look much nicer with a waistcoat than a more modern style shirt with a pointed collar. The material and colours are lovely.

The Victorian shirt I've always wanted
THIS is the Victorian/Edwardian shirt I've been looking for all along. Finally a shirt with a properly tall collar that fits so well I may not have to starch it the way I've done with other shirts that I've worn in the past. The collar is quite comfortable. The material is a little thinner than the Frontier Classics Dodge City shirts I'm used to but it fits well and would be cooler to wear in warmer climates. I cannot begin to express how happy I am this shirt is now available. If my budget permits, I hope to order a second one soon.

Perfect fit.
I had some concerns about the sleeve length on the large size shirt. The large size is 16 1/2 35-36. I am 6'4 1/2" tall and I usually wear a 16 1/2 36-37. I called the customer service number and I spoke with Eve. I explained my concern to her. We were both online at the time and she told me that the gentleman modeling the shirt was 6'5" and he was wearing the large size. She told me this size would fit me perfectly and if not I could return it. I received the shirt in a timely manner I might add and the shirt was a perfect fit. Everything was perfect. Thank you very much for the wonderful service and wonderful product.

So Good, It'll Grow Hair on Your Chest
Not all Poofy Shirts are made equal. Bought this Pirate Shirt in a 2X for my boyfriend. He's 6'5" and, well, just bigger, and this shirt fit him like a yoho-ing piratey dream. The cotton fabric is a very nice quality, heavy with a little bit of knit feel to it, and the lace up closure at the chest, is just perfect to show off manly manly chest hair. If you're looking for the PERFECT PIRATE SHIRT, the Bartholomew is it!

Great Shirt
Quality of the shirt is excellent. Thick material, well made. My chest is 41 and neck 15 5/8. The size large was just too big for me. I felt like I was wearing an X-Lrg. This is not a fitted design. I reordered a medium which fit much better but the neck of the medium was bordering on too snug yet it was still comfortable enough to wear. The Medium looks like it fits me. I plan to order again from this company.

Excellent value and quality
I have been looking for a purple/royal shirt in the 1860-1880's style for months, finally, I find this one and it is exactly what I wanted. It is sized accurately and very well made. Why this color? Well, my fiancee's wedding dress is the same color and period, of course. Our wedding is 26 April 2014, at the Town Gazebo in Tombstone AZ.

Comfy shirt
I wanted to get a comfy yet slightly stylish shirt for a Steampunk convention and this one is perfect. I live in a hot climate and tend to get overheated easily. This shirt did a good job of keeping me comfortable. It's loose but not so billowy that it looks like a pirate shirt. The collar is just right for a casual look or a slightly dressier look when paired with a vest and tie - which is what I wanted. It's held-up really well in the washing machine. No loss of shape. Great shirt!

Best shirt I've ever worn
I love this shirt. The material and cut make it good for dressy occasions, but it isn't overly formal and great for everyday wear, especially with a four-in-hand or bow tie. Like many of your products, it's a staple of my daily wardrobe. Now my eye is on either the white or blue one for summer.
