Classy Shirt
I finally found a shirt I have been looking for awhile. My wife and I are looking for an opportunity for me to wear this soon! Great addition to a men's wardrobe.

Nice Shirt
I had looked at wing tip shirts at our local mall and found a couple to choose from but the fit was not what was needed. These shirts buttoned completely down the front and did not give the look I wanted. The shirt from Historical Emporium is a mock button up (actually a pull-over) and as such is cut fuller than a modern shirt. The material used is better than the average dress shirt but not of the finest quality. The wing tip collar is not as pronounced as the shirts I found at the mall but does look good with the tie I selected for my costume. The fullness of the body is easily hidden by wearing a vest over the shirt. Overall, this is an excellent choice and I feel you will be pleased with your purchase.

Took the advice of other reviewers to opt for one size smaller than my husband normally wears and the shirt fits beautifully! Fits as if it was tailored for him. Quality clothing, not just a costume.

Second Purchase
I recently ordered a jacket and could not find my dress shirt that was to be worn at our daughter's wedding. I ordered he shirt and requested a 'quick ship' to ensure the shirt would arrive in time for the BIG EVENT. The shirt was shipped amazingly fast and arrive in plenty of time for the wedding. A beautiful shirt, well designed and manufactured. Great job Historic Emporium!!!

Great quality cotton shirt pullover with buttons half way down chest and gathered back. Putting it on transforms you into an old time shopkeeper or gambler. The XL was very roomy. I usually wear a 34 sleeve and 17 neck. Neck was comfortable but I probably could have gone with a large. Was long too so plenty to tuck in. Well worth the cost for its authentic build. With the unique collar, a regular dress shirt cannot compare.

Gorgeous shirt
I bought this shirt for my wedding to go with the River Vest. I bought an XL and it was way too big. The style of the shirt gives lots of pleating at the back for a billowy appeal. Very sharp. So, I reordered another shirt in a Medium and it fits perfectly. Wow what a great shirt. The style is wonderful, the quality is very good, and the material is a nice cotton. The shirt has sleeves that are a bit loose (on purpose) and it is a very attractive Victorian look. I will wear this to my wedding with the vest. Can't wait.

Excelsior!
I am into Steampunk, and this is the conclusion of attire I needed in its creation. I had several other shirts that just couldn't fit the bill for various different reasons. When I put the shirt on with my other clothes and then finally the face mask I created, the shirt gave an added debonair look that made me say only one thing. "EXCELSIOR!!"

The corner stone
I needed a shirt like this with a nice crisp high collar to cement my outfit for a Victorian era party. Its a pullover, with a quarter button up. Don't worry about fumbling around with the button holes because they are perfect. Throw a cravat around you're neck and you'll look like you stepped straight out of the late 1800's. The cuffs are also pretty rigid. The sleeves run a little long but you can throw some sleeve garters on to really take things up a notch.

Love the shirt, the fit is great and the look is exactly what I wanted. I found out at the cleaners that it needs to be dry cleaned because it does not open up in front and can't fit on the ironing device they use. So it costs a little more to get cleaned. No biggie but something to consider I suppose.

I have been looking to upgrade some of my Steampunk gear. I've done it piece-by-piece and one of the last ones were black shirts. Now that I have these, I think what I have for this character is pretty good. I still need to accessorize more, but this means my basic gear and garments are set.

Best Halloween Ever
I purchased the Victorian Men's Dress Shirt with the High Stand Collar in black for my steampunk Halloween costume. I paired it with the Crimson Commander's Vest for a factory forman/ engineer look. Following the sizing guide I was a bit nervous of the fit, being a Plus-sized gentleman. I was quite surprised to find the product properly enveloped me. For once I have an awesome costume that isn't being unduely stretched by my figure. Will Buy Again.

Great shirt... after modifying it with rear collar button to accept a separate collar (as pictured on the web site, though the use of pinning the collar on it for the picture).

Nice looking lightweight shirt which wears well even during hot summer days in the south. Craftsmanship and material quality are wonderful. With the addition of a small 2-hole button on the collar loop this shirt adapts nicely to the add-on collars, which provides a lot of different looks from one shirt. A distinctive styleed shirt that goes with everything. This is a good choice to keep in your wardrobe.

Excellent but wide in the waist
Purchased a Medium. My usual size is 38-40. Shirt is great but still a bit large for a 38 size. too wide especially in the waist area. Don't know if size Small would be any slimmer in the waist since this is most likely a traditional 'period' style shirt (wider and voluminous). Happy with the Medium size. Great fabric and style. Comfortable. Consider it a good buy.

Pleated Shirt
I purchased this shirt at the same time as the gambler shirt. They are essentially the same shirt. One has the pleats sewn down, the other does not. One has a loop at the back neck to hold a tie, the other does not. They are both bibfront designs. Only the wearer would know the difference. I sewed buttons onto the back of the necks to use detachable collars. Since the fronts close with a stud, this works quite well. The style and cut are quite proper and ample.

Victorian Mens Dress Shirt - Wing Tip
Although I have not worn it yet, I did try it on. It fits well, the sizing guide was correct. The only disappointment was the buttons. I had to change them out to white bone buttons, which I will again change out to white glass buttons when I have more time. When trying to recreate a period look, clear plastic buttons is not the way to go. Otherwise no complaints. It shipped faster than I thought it wood and seemed to have it overnight.

Great quality, Check your measurements.
This is a quality product! When the product arrives, the material feels thin; but after one run through the laundry the material fills out and you can appreciate the quality of the cotton and the stitching. MAKE SURE that you measure yourself using the instructions provided at Historical Emporium's web site for best fit. If you find yourself at the larger end of the sizing, go a size up as a loose fit will look more authentic and will be more comfortable. You will have to iron this shirt, it is 100% cotton. I have found it best to tumble dry for a few minutes to remove excess water, then hang dry for best wear. Hope this helps.

Shiloh shirt
The tag on this pull-over shirt calls it a Shiloh. sounds so historical! Heavier-than-usual cotton weave feels comfortable with a tee-shirt or tank top under it. This shirt can take a beating in any reenacting situation. Classic 19th century design fits right in with CAS situations. Add a western tie and vest for those times when a cowboy wants to spruce up a might. I wear a lamb skin leather waistcoat with it. Not so much historical 19th century western as common in the old western TV shows from the 50's & 60's. This shirt can also be seen in those old western shows and movies. It's a tough, yet good looking design that belongs in your cowboy wardrobe.

Not for Me
I bought this shirt in natural and tan stripe, and the look of both is superb. I actually preferred this striped one in appearance. However, the fabric was different from the natural. I found it too course, as i have sensitive skin. So, I sent in back, no big deal. But I think a washing and a wearer who prefers a tougher fabric will love this. The natural, on the other hand... that was a keeper.

I bought this intending to use it as part of my intrepid explorer steampunk costume, but it's so comfortable and such a great fit I've worn it to work several times. Moral: don't limit your thinking. I suspect many Emporium products can be worn on 'non-costume' occasions.

Please read!!!
Ordered this shirt. Wore it to a function with a vest and bow tie. I seriously can't see why I would ever wear another shirt. It is comfortable, stylish, and of a quality I seriously never expected. After I wore it I actually sat down and inspected it.....every stich, button and seam. I just couldn't believe I finally found THE shirt, but alas, it was true. I found it. FANTASTIC quality. I will be ordering many more and donating most of what I own (shirtwise). If you are even THINKING of ordering, trust me...just do it. You will thank me later. As for Bowties, the "kicked back" collar melds with them perfectly. Thank you so much for my shirt. Please think about doing an Olive stripe....(favorite color). Kevin

A comfortable and good-looking shirt
I bought this shirt to wear on casual-Fridays at the office, not just to wear as part of a costume. I've wore it last Friday with the brown four-pocket canvas vest and a pair of dark-loden chinos and got lots of compliments. Its comfortable and appears well-made. It responded well to ironing and some light spray-starch with not a single puckered seams to be found. A great shirt!

WOW! ! ! !
When I opened the package, I could not believe how great this shirt looked. The picture does NOT do it justice at all. It is just gorgeous. It can be dressed up with his brown cords and vest (also bought here) or just looks great as casual with the canvas. Very good quality, perfect fit. My husband has to have 35/36 inch sleeves and we have never bought a shirt that did not fit great in the sleeve length! Love love love my Western Emporium!

Perfect
This is a very well crafted shirt that certainly looks time appropriate. It also wrinkles as though it is. The tailoring is excellent and the size fits true to size.

The clothing that I ordered are for a Hickory Golf Outing. I also do reenactments / rendezvous, 1800-1850. Everything that I ordered looks good and fits good.

Quality of shirt was very nice. Chest and arm fit was good but I to go to next size larger to get right size in neck. Easy process to exchange shirt.

Love this shirt
I have bought Virgil Shirts in the past because they do have a left breast pocket and the overall look is very 1880's. It is big enough to wear as a night shirt as well. I had to unload previous shirts and trousers after I lost 200 pound since my last order three years back.

Two perfect fits
I am always wary of ordering clothes by mail or from the internet, but I needed a Victorian/Edwardian club-collared short, so I took a chance when I stumbled across The Gentleman's Emporium. To say the least, I'm glad I did.The shirt (of very high quality) fits perfectly (which isn't all that common as I lift weights four day/week). So why the "two perfect fits" title? Given this initial experience with the company, I'd say The Gentleman's Emporium is going to be an equally perfect fit for me. (Expect more orders.)

Found item not easy to find
Looked on many other sites for rounded collars and had little luck. Gentlemen's Emporium had a great selection and the sizing recommendations were accurate. It's a great shirt.

It is exactly as shown
I do period recreations and Steampunk cosplay. I needed a shirt for a new cosplay not to dissimilar to the office outfits worn on The Gilded Age on HBO Max. This shirt is very close to what I was looking for and the price was not bad. It matched the frock and waist coat I got for the cosplay very well. Understand in period, many white shirts were off white and not stark white. I love the texture and color difference. If you are looking for a more casual Late Victorian/Edwardian shirt, this will do the trick.

Sinclair Edwardian Club Collar Shirt
One of my favorite shirts. Fits perfectly, and looks great. Good quality, and great for those who want that true western 1800's look. It also looks great with my antique 1879 A.W. Co. Waltham with key pocket watch. Would recommend!

Great quality and fit
Online comments said the shirt fits on the large size so I went with the fit chart and bought a medium instead of the usual large and it fits perfect. Plenty of shoulder room and arm length is exact. Beautifully made. Shipping was really fast to Canada.

Sinclair Edwardian Club Collar Shirt (White)
Very good quality, nice and breezy and handy for summer. And the collar style makes it versatile, so you're paying for two different shirts in one. It's quite baggy around the stomach but a waistcoat takes care of that. I ordered 2XL and it fits me perfectly, which is pretty good for something I bought online. With the collars starched up, I think it probably looks best with a deluxe western-style bowtie or a cravat.

Very nice shirt.
For a 2xl I found the neck to be quite small, but still satisfactory.

Victorian shirt
This shirt fit well, was a basic style that covers many eras, the cost was right, the sleeves and cuffs were decent. I may get another as a spare. If you are tall, as I am, make sure you note that somewhere on the form. I did, and was rewarded with the longer fit at the waist...

THIS SHIRT IS SO CLASSIC!
This shirt has a small round collar, a pleated bib front and is made with some room in the shoulders, arms and back. It is beautiful, appropriate for formal and informal occasions and is very comfortable to wear. It is 100% cotton and is machine washable! No dry cleaning necessary! You can wear this shirt with a pair of jeans and look great! It is truly a classic! Thank you for your excellent products and fabulous quality!

Edwardian Club Collar Shirt
This is a cotton shirt and it was too big when I first rec'd it but when it was washed it was a perfect size. Don't know how they can determine that it will be perfect but it was. Nice shirt.
