Update: Victorian things

Okay, a couple of other sites.

These guys do mostly war reenactment clothing, and they seem to rock at it. Their frock coats seem nice, (although they all lack the revers on the lapel... grrr) but the fact that they aren't at all tailored kinda concerns me. Victorian clothing was all bespoke and incredibly close-fitting. But their Dress Coats (they call them tailcoats, which is the common usage, but it's kindof improper. technically frock coats and morning coats are also tailcoats) kick ass in a major way.

These guys are the only distributor of Christys' hats. And Christys' hats are awesome. they have the most accurately made top hats I've ever seen. They also have the most historically accurate homburg I've ever seen. in short, get your fucking hats from these guys.

Also, I'd like to point out that I've intentionally avoided linking the "gentleman's emporium", because they are terrible, and over priced. Their cuts are sloppy, their terminology is offensively wrong, and their historical accuracy is suspect. they are a cute costume shop, not an historical clothier. (I recognize that I'm being too judgmental here, but the stuff on their sight made me angry enough times that I gave up.)

I'm glad, dear. I might actually get a hang of this livejournal thing.
