Very Good Qualilty
These are excellent. They look very fine quality. They buttoned up easily enough and looked great. I wore them to GENCON this year as part of my steampunk outfit. They are so nice I will wear them on those occasions when I want to really dress up. They do not look cheap or costume at all.

Nice 'Spats'
I purchased these with an "Inverness" coat. I wear them with the Victorian Tailcoat also sold by H.E. These are a little more expensive than other spats on other sites on the 'net but the quality is no comparison. These fit well, button up well & look sharp. I have the white ones which have a nice satin finish. If I decide on another colour, I will be ordering them from these folks. Their delivery turn-around is spectacular. Thanks H.E.

Spats-classic
I bought these spats to improve on the snap version I had. (I'm a bit snobbish when it comes to dressing) and these are exactly what I wanted. They look great.

Very good purchasing experience
My home was not within this Shop's int'l shipping location, but the hospitable staff of the Customers Service had kindly instructed me to direct the shipping address to my friend's home in Canada. Eventually the item had been brought to me safe and sound by my Canadian friend. The item itself is terrific in quality and I really hope I could do more shopping with this great Store in the future, if only they could consider expanding their int'l shipping list to include mine... A big thanks !

White Satin Spats
I found my new spats to be of excellent quality and style and have taken to wearing them on a regular basis. Not just for special occasion. I may just order another pair!

Classy Touch
My husband and I wore these spats at our wedding. Originally, I was a bit suspect, but I'm glad I overcame that feeling because they added an excellent touch to our roaring 20's/high society themed wedding. Everyone complimented them and told us that they made the outfit (we wore formal tails). The material is superb and very durable.

Although this site specializes in Victorian Era clothing, It works great for Twenties themed male formal accessories. Since Mens formal never had a drastic change. Got many complements on these spats.

RIT approved!
This is the third pair of spats I've purchased from the Emporium, and as always, they're quite pleasing. This time, however, I had a special project - tie dyed spats for Easter. So this review will come in two parts: General and Crazy Crafter Who Drops $30 On Spats They Might Destroy. General - lovely spats! They're made from a soft, light weight twill with satin lining. Very comfortable. I did not think until after it was far too late to call customer service and as "are these preshrunk cotton?" that they might be preshrunk cotton. (Spoiler: they're preshrunk cotton) The one word of caution I would give is that after leaving them sopping wet for 24 hours, there was rust coloured staining on the buttons. Given that these are not meant for puddle hopping this will likely not be an issue for most people, but if you do fall in a lake or some such, at least hit them with a hairdryer somewhat sharpish. I tumbled mine on low in the dryer and they came out Just Dandy. Crazy Crafter - survived being tied up and dunked in boiling dye baths repeatedly like a champ! I used RIT's Dye More line because I had it on hand, but since they're cotton, the regular RIT should do. Took the colour beautifully, not only outside, but inside as well. This means that the white satin spats would likely also dye. Don't let them sit wet overnight (see above). Tumble dry and iron on medium heat. Preshrunk cotton, so order the size you want rather than a size up. An excellent option for weddings,...

High Quality Spats
As with everything else I've ordered from Historical Emporium, these spats are of excellent quality. These are not costume or novelty items, they are made to be worn. I wear a 10.5 and my ankle measures just over 10" so I ordered the large to be on the safe side. They fit perfectly over a pair of wingtips, look sharp and button securely.

I bought 2 pairs of spats. 1 pair of brown, 1 pair of crimson (which are more of a burgandy color). The quality is first rate. The shipping was fast and the sizing is spot on. Gentleman's Emporium is one of my favorite web stores to shop at.

Perfection!
What can I say? They're comfortable, stylish, and I get lots of compliments on them. Plus the brown is a nice shade; it matches a safari jacket I got here that the store no longer carries. If you need good spats that are noticeable (but not overly so), these are them.

2015, I'm bringing spats back
I picked this set up to go with a specific anachronistic ensemble. They were such a nice visual touch, tying together other red elements higher up. I get complements on "those shoe cover thingies" (as nobody seems to know what to call them). I think I'm going to get more of these in different colors and add them to my more contemporary outfits. These seem to be nicely made, rugged looking. Thumbs up!

Amazing!
After much debate on what to wear for Comic Con this year (I vacillated between investing in a high-end Star Wars costume, the Bandersnatch from Alice in Wonderland, etc), I at last decided to go as a Victorian Doctor and purchased an ENTIRE outfit along with many accessories, all at the VERY last minute, from Historical Emporium. Everything I ordered was in stock (Woot!) and I upgraded the shipping to Next Day Air based on my indecisiveness and my waiting to order 3 days before Comic Con. I placed my order on Sunday night. My order arrived Tuesday! EVERYTHING I ordered was perfectly amazing and of high quality! I was (am!) blown away! AND, to top it all off, Historical Emporium refunded my Next Day Air Shipping ($63!) because I live in Southern California, which is within their 1 day ground shipping zone already. What? Who does that? Holy moly - what a great company, what outstanding service and what amazing products! I'd write more but Comic Con starts in 24 hours and I've got to get ready!

High quality materials and solid construction. Looks good with my period tuxedo ensemble. Only wish there were more color options like possibly black-on-red Paisley. Will definitely stop here for my future needs.

Oh, yeah
So, I bought these to complete my outfit but was very surprised at the quality of them. They are not one layer of fabric, they are lined with a very nice black fabric. Both layers are good heavy cloth that should last a good while. Sizing was spot on and they just look great. I'm going to enjoy these.

sing for outdoor LARP, holding up well
Well made, good looking spats. I use them for LARP and put them over a pair of Easy Spirit leather tennis shoes so that I can walk around on site with slightly less modern looking shoes that keep me from hurting my poor foot bones. The elastic has held up well so far (two three-day events so far) and I have gotten lots of compliments on them.

Fashionable and Functional
I was concerned about the sizing being different from what I was used to, but the measurement guide on the page was spot-on. They fit my shoes perfectly and don't impede me while wearing them. They fit over tennis shoes as well, giving me the ability to wear comfortable shoes without my shoes breaking the illusion of the overall outfit.
