Great coat
This is a great lightweight well made coat. As a shorter round guy the M/L fit me well with the only adjustment needed was the sleeves (stitch witchery fixed it). I actually used this as more of a dark wizard cloak and it worked well. I do wish it had pockets but very minor gripe as i was able to access my own short pockets underneath when needed. The lightweight is great for summer events. Delivery was fast.

it is a very nice nice material and not to thick
it is a very nice nice material and not to thick. i got the medium cause I read other reviews that said to get that for a size 42. it just barly fits me but that's ok cause I am losing weight. The look though is impeccable you will be surprised hwo good you look in it and I'm not a person to brag on myself. I do recommend wearing light clothes under it though

Beautiful quality! Definitely menís sizes though!
I bought this for a cosplay Iím putting together for a Harry Potter convention and itís absolutely gorgeous. The quality is fantastic. The buttons are a little hard to do up, but I think thatís just due to the way theyíre positioned. I bought the smallest size and it was absolutely massive on me, however. I was expecting this, though, Iím notoriously hard to fit, so I donít hold it against HE! I took it to a tailor and had it fitted and now itís perfect. (For reference for anyone wondering what size to get, or if the smallest size is too large: Iím female, about 5í5Ē, around 100lbs. Be prepared to have it heavily tailored if youíre about my size!) The fabric is great quality and surprisingly light. Good for anyone whoís going to be at an outdoors event. It probably wouldnít work outdoors in the summer in warmer climates but it is light enough to be comfortable.

I love it and it looks great!
I love everything I've ever gotten from Historical Emporium, and this coat is no exception. It's durable, well-made, and designed to be comfortable for folks with a more generous figure. My wardrobe is slowly becoming all vintage/cowboy/steampunk because I can get good looking, good quality clothing here that fits and is comfortable to wear - usually for a lower price than ordinary clothes bought through some major outlets.

Lab Coat Awesomeness
Absolutely loved this product, it arrived literally within a few days, and I used it for my historical tours here in Old Town San Diego as a mortician. It goes great with my leather steampunk belt bag that I got from here as well. Sadly when my car got broken into 2 days ago, this coat was stolen. I will definitely be getting another one as soon as I can. So if car thieves would rather have this coat than my GPS device, then I'm sure you'd like it too.

Mad science at its best
I LOVE this coat. This is going to be great for times when I want to unleash my evil mad scientist side of me. It radiates a sexy kind of sinister genius all throughout. I like that the buttons go from the mid section all the way to the top of the neck. I really like the look of it on me when it's all buttoned up from the far right side along the shoulder to the neck. My only complaint is that there are no pockets on this coat. However, that can be easily accommodated with a shoulder bag or better yet, a utility belt of some sort. I'm even thinking this might be a conversation piece at Rocky Horror screenings. Thank you HE.

I love this lab coat! Wonderful look and quality. I read other reviews that commented on the material not being heavier, but since I wore mine over a shirt and vest, I appreciated that the material was light and comfortable and not heavily weighted.

Mad Scientist coat in red
I am very pleased with the quality of this coat. The cotton fabric is very substantial without being bulky or uncomfortable. It is well constructed and I know I will be able to wear it for many years. The only thing I would change is the number of button holes on the adjustable tabs on the back of the coat. There are two buttons but only one button hole. I would love to see 3 or 4 button holes to allow for more adjustments. I ordered the 3XL and it is very roomy which I like, and again I would like the ability to have more adjustments to the back. I paired this with a red top hat, black gloves and a glowing jar around my neck. I got so many compliments at the Edwardian themed party I attended. Red always makes a statement.

Perfect Fit
For only needing this as a costume it kept me warm while running around. I went with a size larger than recommended and it fits me perfectly. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to do a Dr. Horrible cosplay or even a mad scientist costume.

It is hard to tell the quality with just a picture but this item is indeed well made, I am a big guy so I ordered the XL/2XL and when I received it and trued it on it fit perfectly. The material is a nice weight not light like some cheaper versions very durable. It was a little more then I wanted to pay but it is worth the price, I am very happy with this item

I ordered this for myself for a dr horrible costume. Since I am a 5'8 female this came to the floor. I had to make some alterations to make it work for my needs. The quality is great, decent fabric. Not thin and flimsy at all. I'd recommend this item to anyone looking for a lab coat to use for any reason!

Dr. Horrible Cosplay
I purchased this for myself for a Dr. Horrible cosplay. It fit a bit bigger than expected, but I am a female instead of male. Nothing a little sewing can't fix. I wore this at Alamo City Comic Con with a tank top and shorts underneath, since it was long enough you didn't need to see the pants and was quite comfortable.

I cannot believe my eyes...
This beautiful lab coat is just perfect for my Dr. Horrible cosplay! I'm a woman, 5'5", about a size 10, and the Small size is perfect: a bit of room in the shoulders, but not too baggy. That said, the torso is cut VERY long. The coat is floor-length on me (which is perfect, because I need some extra fabric to make a pocket.) Construction on this is top-notch, and the fabric itself is very high quality: it's a lovely true red and it washes like a dream (I love laundry day!). Buy this, you won't be disappointed. This is no costume store garbage! Trust me, I've got a Ph.D. in horribleness...

Eureka!
First off, perceptional internet research exhibits that "The Historical Emporium" carries the most authentic old fashioned apparel products. The Historical Emporium had my "Mad Scientist Howie Lab Coat" shipped the next morning, and almost immediately provided a shipping tracking number. 100% The Lab Coat itself is 99% what I expected. I like that it is long- similar to a trench-coat. However the buttons are NOT made of metal like stated in the item description on the website, and my hypothesis is that the neck collar is NOT "reinforced". My conclusion is that I am 99% satisfied, I would have loved metal buttons and a more reinforced neck collar. I do appreciate the Historical Emporium and will continue to still do business. I also look forward to submitting customer product photos in regard to the monthly contest. Cordially, MaD JaKe

Looks and feels great, fits well
The sleeves were a little long, but then, I'm 5' 7". It fit perfectly everywhere else, and I just rolled the sleeves up a bit. When I get time I may have them hemmed up a bit. But since I was wearing the elbow-length industrial gauntlets over it, the sleeves weren't a problem. This thing looks terrific - I may have to buy them in other colors, but when you wear the white one everyone immediately knows you're a scientist/doctor (I got it for a steampunk mad scientist costume). It's a fairly heavy material, but it's loose enough for good airflow, and I didn't get overheated in it. It was exactly what I needed and wanted, and my costume was quite popular. Thanks!

Great Lab Coat
This is a great quality costume lab coat for the money. It isn't perfect but it is the best I have found for less than $200. The fabric is quite heavy and nice, flows well, and should be easy to age. My only real complaint is the collar is not tight enough when buttoned and flares out like a cone instead of standing up vertically. I will probably move the collar button to try to fix that. The sleeves are big and flared as shown in the photos but that isn't a major issue. The coat does run big so be careful with the sizing. I am a 42 and the M/Lg coat is big on me. This will be perfect for a Dr. Vannacutt House on Haunted Hill party!

Couldn't be happier
I am 5'9 and around 205 lbs. The L/XL coat was too large and so I returned it for the M/L which fits perfect. I had zero trouble making the return and the turn-around time was less than a full week from return shipping to receiving the replacement.

Everything about buying this item was awesome, from the great person I spoke with on the phone, to the speedy delivery that exceeded expectations. The lab coat itself is beyond great! I bought it for a costume contest at work, and would have won, but my rival had better legs. Seriously, if I was an actual mad scientist, I couldn't ask for a better lab coat, the quality is that good. It's not just some flimsy item that would look good on stage, the material, construction, and workmanship are all excellent.

The Mad Doctor is IN
It is always nice to find "exotic" costumes that fit the typically larger American. Not only that, but it is not a cheap looking lab coat. It wears well, and seems to be professionally built. Comfortably thin, but not THAT thin. This is not a cheaply made costume. The Mad Doctor is IN!

Disappointed...
There's always a risk involved when ordering stuff online, and even if the item description isn't totally misleading, it still doesn't give a good idea of what you're actually ordering. Basically, you get a (brown in my case) lab coat made of cotton. However, the material is somewhat thin and drapes the body more like an hospital gown than an actual coat. The picture used to depict the product is, to my eye, somewhat misleading as the material appears to be sturdy like if it was thick cotton. I'm actually comparing the picture and my coat and they don't look the same. I was planning to use this coat for a mad scientist costume but I'll need to add an apron or some kind of accessory if I don't want to look too ridiculous (i.e. like an hospital patient with a brown gown and weird goggles). Consequently, the $75 price tag is pricey for what you get. I must say though that shipping was pretty fast and Historical Emporium customer service was impeccable. In the end, my 2 stars rating is based on this: -1 star for the misleading picture, -1 star for the hefty price (for what you actually get) and -1 star for the cheap material.

Great coat
Well made, sizing was good, nice fit and finish, heavy cotton similar to demim weight so should be pretty durable, would have been nice if it was lined, but I suppose that would cost more. Only reason did not give 5 stars is the adjuster strap in the back, it seems to have been added in as more of an afterthought, kinda basic.

Great Coat!!
I purchased this coat for a Plague Doctor costume that I put together, The coat is a little on the slim side but worked out great for me, I am 6ft 195lbs. I waxed the canvas to give it a stiff and aged look with melted paraffin and beeswax. I really like this coat and can't wait to find another excuse to use it.

Great look
This garment has a great look to it. The fabric is light and breathable. The sizing was spot on. The buttons are a litle difficult to use without a mirror, due to location. The lab coat has no pockets. Perhaps that is by design, and historically accurate. Still, I would prefer it to have two side pockets (not front pockets). It opens at the waist easily enough to allow access to any pants pockets worn underneath. The sleeves are quite large. When paired with large gloves or gauntlets, they are manageable. Without gauntlets, the sleeves get in the way when trying to do just about everything (unless you have long arms). Overall, this is a great purchase.

It's Alive!!!
We have a Halloween event for employees and their families every year. This year needed a spectacular Dr Frankenstein. This lab coat made it just that - spectacular! So much better than the other junk you find out there. The quality is fantastic! The look is perfect! Sizing is a bit tough to fit everyone, but works just fine for me although a little snug in the middle (probably my problem more than the item). Better suited for the mad scientist who gets to the gym regularly, instead of staying at the lab doing research. So if you keep ahead of the monsters by jogging - perfect!
