Nice quality coat for the money
The Livingston cutaway sack coat is a VERY NICE coat for the money . It runs true to my standard suit coat sizing and fit me perfectly . The only problem i had was that the top button hole was sewn too small for the button . Easy fix for me so i just handled that problem in house.

A little stiff
The product came in good condition, and it was very sturdy and well made. It was just a TINY bit stiff when we took it out, so trying to get it into a more natural shape to put on our actor was a little tricky indeed. Otherwise, quick service and very professional communication. Thanks Historical Emporium!

Awesome products
Everything arrived on time for our event with the expedited shipping and the quality of the suit jacket and vest and tie were excellent! The pants were not the correct size , so I think on the next order we would check more closely on the style and the sizing of trousers .Overall very satisfied with this company and it's products. Would use again and would recommend to others

My New Charcoal Coat
Right from the box, my new coat looked great, and exactly like what I wanted. As I tried it on, it actually fit perfectly. It's going to be hard to wait till the Christmas Candlelight Tour of Homes to wear it, but I'll try... I would recommend this coat to anyone interested in stepping back in time for Events.

My Luck
I ordered this cutaway coat in Charcoal because they did not have my size (50) in Black. When the coat arrived, I tried it on and found that the coat was too large. I sent it back and exchanged it for a 48, and this time in black since they had that in stock. It arrived today and am happy to say that the fit is wonderful.

Nice coat and had that period look and feel. A good fit for the actor I was building a period costume for who was leaving for a film shoot in Austria. The only problem I found was that the p coat buttonholes are too small for buttons. Very difficult to open and close. Since, the actor will be leaving the coat open the problem did not have to be remedied.

Light and comfortable
Received the coat and tried it on immediately and noticed how light it was, which was a very big plus for the temperatures that we find on the middle Gulf Coast of Texas. The sleeves were about 6 inches too long, but that was good since the wife can sew (I can too, but only when I have to) and she could fit it to my arm length. Very happy with the coat so far and see no issues at this time!

Great Morning Coat
We were using this jacket as a costume piece for a show. It arrived in record time which was great. We also needed an extra large size which wasn't easy to find anywhere else. The sleeves needed hemming but that 's ok better than too short. The coat was well made and can be kept for future endeavors. It looked amazing and really added to the character.

Morning Coat
If you got your measurements done well this coat is a wonderful fit. I did some research on how the coat should drape on the person, and this rests really well on me. I am below average height for a Caucasian male in between 5'5" and 5'6". The morning coat is longer than is traditional due to my shorter stature, but I don't mind that at all. It looks like it was tailored just for you if the measurements were done right.

Good Purchase!
I am in a garage rock band, all of us 55+ years old, and we are beginning to play some larger gigs. I needed something to provide a little more stage presence, so I shopped around and ended up buying this coat. Fits perfectly, perfect look over a T-shirt with black jeans; gave me exactly the look I was after - - not over the top, but unique and a little classy. The quality of the fabric and the craftsmanship is much better than I expected - - much better than some blazers I have spent much more money for. This coat is good enough quality that I would wear to a formal party. A good purchase!

Worth the wait
I waited two years to buy this coat and when I slipped in on for the first time I was immediately in awe over the feel of the fabric as it draped around my body. The quality of this coat has no equal. I still need to take the coat to a tailor to make the coat form fitting but this coat demands attention as is.

My 6-foot 3-inch tall husband Dan is the epitome of the Victorian gentleman in this beautifully made black cutaway coat. He has a silver collared vest, black trousers, suspenders, white shirt and royal blue puff tie from Historial Emporium to complete his ensemble for our date to the Kirkman House Museum Victorian Ball on Oct. 24.

Numerous positive compliments when I wore this to the Fizziweg (young Scrooge's former boss) Ball. Perfect for "Regency" period attire or creating that "Mr. Darcy" look. Paired with a red Buckingham vest. Large is equivalent to a size 44. Excellent fit and drape. Wore again to the Snowball the following weekend. After wearing one more time will beat the cost of renting locally an item from the wrong period.

Fine quality; tricky to size
My husband is 5'4' and slim; usually wears slim-fit suits. We went by your size chart and ordered a medium, but it was huge on him, so we exchanged it for a small, your smallest men's size in this coat. It's still loose on him, but since there is no smaller size, we are keeping it and heading out to our trusty tailor to shorten the sleeves and take in the back and shoulders. It will look quite stunning on him when all is done!

Beautiful Tailcoat, high quality
Wow, this tailcoat is great. I'm a professional full time actor and I was hired to perform a historical play. A red tailcoat was required and I spent a good month visiting costume shops in person and online looking for one. Tried on many and they were almost always single layer, no lining, no pockets, poor quality and $300 and up. Saw this one and even though I could not try it on The price was too good to pass. It arrived quickly and as soon as I pulled it out of the box I was stunned by the quality. Thick quality tailcoat, two nice pockets inside and looks very historically accurate as opposed to the clownish bright red carnival circus type jackets that are offered at other costumers. I was really impressed, then I tried it on.....Too small! I ordered a large which would normally fit me, but this large seemed a bit smaller then what I'm used to. I sent it back and ordered the XL with NO PROBLEMS AT ALL! a quick and easy exchange and the new one fit like a charm! I had not enough time to do a return/exchange so I just bought an xl and mailed back the L and it all worked out well. A few days after they received my L I got my refund. I definitely recommend this jacket. Large fits slightly smaller then standard sizes Is darker in color then it appears on the website. expedited shipping is FAST! Looks great with the Penworth ascot and a proper full sized top hat!

Love this tailcoat! Quality construction, definitely better than "costume quality." Taking off a star for the color: the picture is a bit misleading, because it is actually a very dark burgundy, and there's not as much contrast between the red and the black velvet trim.

Exceptional look for many occasions
This formal tailcoat, cut in the Victorian style, is crafted from gorgeous material with beautiful lines. The effect it has far exceeds its modest price, and I would feel comfortable wearing these tails to even the most formal of events - it is obviously well-suited to white tie affairs. This offering from the Historical Emporium is especially appreciated as many luxury retailers no longer stock tailcoats at all. As others have noted the cut is, perhaps, on the generous side, which does cause some flaring of the cutout at the midriff. If one is on the cusp between sizes, I would recommend going one size lower. Considering how great the price for this coat is, however, one could easily afford the services of a tailor to have it fitted.

I was impressed with the quality of the fabric, however I had to have it tailored as it fit nicely across my chest and shoulders but was far too big around the midriff. It appears these are made with big bellied men in mind.

WORKED OUT GREAT!
I ordered a costume for a Victorian Halloween party from Historical Emporium. The downside - it was a bit pricey - the upside: TOTALLY WORTH IT!!! The clothes were well made - certainly in line with the pricing. The fit was great. I'm on the larger side of the spectrum and used their fitting chart. Everything fit well and I felt really comfortable. The pants were very long and had to be hemmed so give yourself time for that - but I would much rather they be too long than too short. Everything came on or before the expected date, was nicely packaged and it all worked out beautifully! I would highly recommend Historical Emporium to anyone considering investing in a very nice costume! I wish there were a way to post a picture. THANK YOU H.E.!

This truly is a handsome jacket. Love the fact that is 100% wool. My husband was pleased that the arms were available in a long. It fit him very well. I always hesitate to order clothing for him online because of his longer arms but this worked. Just wished you offered a pair of wool pants to go with it....

Product is lovely. I ordered it for my husband as a Christmas present. I have ordered other coats for my husband, all at the same size, and I DO read the sizing guides. Other coats have fit my husband well. This coat is too big and we will have to have it altered to fit. The shoulders fit, but the rest of the coat is waayy too roomy.

Beautiful
I bought this (and many other items from Historical Emporium) to create a more authentic Victorian Christmas caroling costume for our professional ensemble. The jacket is soft and comfortable, and gets all sorts of compliments. It's warm without being too hot. That's big because we perform both inside and outside throughout December. The coat provides a nice look that keeps me warm when outdoors, but not too hot when we come inside. I do wish that there were pockets on the inside for me to put things, but this is not by any means an indication that I am unhappy with the tailcoat. I'll just have someone add a pocket deep inside so I have someplace to put my keys, phone, etc. since the front button Victorian style pants I purchased also don't have any pockets. I highly recommend this tailcoat.

Beautiful!
Just beautiful! We purchased two of these for our wedding. One for the bride and one for the groom. We noticed they were out of medium and large and while I have a substantial chest, I was happy to see that the 3X should cover me, but we weren't quite sure about the small for him. However, when we received them we couldn't be happier. They are high quality and fit perfectly with the exception of the sleeves (apparently our arms are a bit shorter than average) but nothing a little tailoring won't fix. We have been searching for matching tailcoats for a while now and are so pleased to have found this site, and these coats. Thankfully, he didn't have a chest that would impede the small from fitting him. :) Overall, this was a great store to purchase from, our order was shipped promptly and we received it quickly. We can't wait to wear these (we are trying to think of someplace to wear them before the wedding since they are so amazing!) Keep up the good work and for those considering, this is worth the price and fits true to the measurements provided.

Gorgeous and High Quality
I purchased this for my husband to wear for the upcoming Edwardian Ball. This is a very well made coat, it is heavy and fully lined, and the brocade pattern is velvety and soft. My husband is in between a L and and XL on the measurement chart, so we went with the XL and it fits very well, does not look oversized on him. The sleeves are a little long but we expected that when going up a size. He looks fantastic in the coat and can't wait to wear it for the ball!

Fabulous Looking Coat
I'm 5'9", 180 lbs., average build and wear a 40R Tailored or Modern Slim Suit. This coat (M) fit well on my shoulders, but some tailoring was needed for the sleeve cuffs, but I expected that. The silver button detail is great, but would prefer that they be attached a little tighter/closer to the coat because some of the buttons kind of flop downward so you can't see the detail on some of them. However, all in all this coat looks nice and I'm looking forward to wearing at my company's holiday masquerade party. I paired this coat with: Cavalier Vest-Brown Diamond Pattern, Callahan Dress Trousers, Marcus Regency Shirt w/Removable Jabot and Black Elastic Y-back Suspenders (Short)

If you are looking for something that you can dress up in, stand out it, role play in, have fun in, ...this is a piece that does all that. Yes it's a couple of bucks (especially with exchange rate these days) but it's worthy. I'm very happy with the first order I made. I decided to make a second order with a few items to go with this jacket and a second outfit for an up coming trip to NOLA.
