Very Nice!
Am headed from Seattle to Grassington UK, where PBS' "All Creatures Great and Small" is filmed. The day after I arrive, the townspeople will all be dressed up in late 30s/early 40s costumes to honor the TV series. I wanted something to wear that would allow me to join in, but that was easier than a zoot suit to pack. Spats fit the bill, albeit in a rather comical way if warm weather finds me wearing them with shorts! Anyway, my plan is to leave the spats behind for my friends who live in Grassington to wear at next year's celebration. I know they'll be quite pleased with the ones I purchased,

Classy touch.
I will be attending at least two weddings this year, as well as a college graduation. I am certainly wearing these to the weddings and possibly the graduation as well. The satin with the contrasting black buttons will raise the level of my look greatly. I expect to receive many compliments on these spats.

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.

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 !

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.

Best on the market
I purchased a different pair on line and was disappointed with the quality and returned them. I ordered a pair from Historical Emp., they arrived in a timely manner and were of excellent quality and not a cheap costume piece like the first ones I received from a different Amazon Co. that were cheap vinyl China made prop.

Good but not great
I own a couple of pairs of the surplus Swiss motorcyclist gaiters, on which these are based. These are fairly well-made, but the leather is not as thick as the originals, nor as it appears to be i. Also, the straps are a little stretchy and the buckle-holes are small and not all punched-through. For the money, I was expecting heavier leather with better attention to detail.

Workmanship
I found that this product was put together wrong or incorrectly. the bottom strap that goes under the boot was reversed. Meaning the brown side of the strap was upside down. So the soft underside was showing! It had been put on upside down on this pair of Gaiters! Other than this the product is of good quality and served it's what it was made for!

Not for Large Calves
These gaiters are well made of thick and strong leather. They are, however, designed for stove-pipe legs. If you have calves they may not fit. I have raised this issue with "Historical Emporium" who were excellent in acknowledging the issue and have indicated that will explore my suggestion of providing a girth measurement at each of the straps. If this is done the product would gain five stars.

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.

I bought these white spats when I bought my grey pair. I have not gotten to wear these yet as I bought these for formal wear. I love the fabric though! Very nice looking. If the grey pair I've already worn for 2 weeks gives any indication, then these white pair will certainly be a delight!

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.

The Spats that hide a Secret
These are going in my Airship Pirate Doctor attire, and hide a secret as they cover knee high boots I piratized and go excellently with the overall look making them look like dandy brown dress shoes, along with the Sable Brushed Trousers that complete the covering. Suburb quality of any aspiring gentleman.... or sneaky pirate

Beautiful and comfortable!
Ordered a pair of these to dress up my Formal Hufflepuff outfit and they're great! In the past I've only be able to find cheap, vinyl costume spats which, while effective, have also been rather uncomfortable. These were much more comfortable, especially about the ankle (I have just over a 9" ankle and ordered a pair in small), and look smashing! I'm already looking at different styles and colours.
