I had my eye on this coat for over a year and finally went for it. My order arrived in about a week and a half. I goofed on my measurements and ended up having to do an exchange which was responded to smoothly and patiently and I was given advice and answers to every question. I cannot give enough compliments about how good the customer service is at Dracula Clothing. They were very understanding when my exchange got stuck in customs and immediately shipped my new coat when it finally cleared. I bought both the Crimson Evil Queen Coat and the matching hood, and the only issue was the fabric wasn't the exact same. I was informed that this wasn't a flaw and just how the hoods are made which is understandable, and was even offered a bit of a credit for a couple of minor issues I had.
Overall, the clothing is BEAUTIFUL. I got compliments on it the first day I wore it. I was curious about the strength of the lace-up in the back, but the brocade is nice and heavy and tightening the lace doesn't cause any strain on the fabric. Definitely gives you a nice flattering shape. The length is perfect and it doesn't drag. I am 5'8", about 140lbs with moderate proportions and the size L coat is a nice fit (I usually wear size M clothes, you do need to order up for the coats), with the most snug area being the top button at the bust, but not much. Basically, measure very carefully and contact them if you have any doubts!
The only thing I am finding is that my layers are not warm enough with this coat with that pesky Canadian windchill when it goes much below 0 C--I have a tendency to be on the cold side though, so I might just need to get some better quality sweaters to wear with this!
Absolutely 100% recommended. I've shopped for alternative/goth wear for years and the quality for what you're getting at Dracula Clothing is amazing. This may just become my new go-to place for clothing. I'm especially thrilled about the outerwear because getting something unique, well made and classy-looking at a good price is a big challenge. I'll definitely be back when I need to replace my Spring coats too--and maybe even grab one of the thicker coats for next winter as well. I am so happy to have found this store, and I'm looking forward to many future purchases! :) (Posted on 2/20/2020)
Delivery was pretty quick. I bought the coat for my better half as a Christmas gift, She is over the moon with it. Definitely not a cheap material and really will keep her warm and cosy. Coat flares out really well in case you wear a big dress underneath like a hooped skirt or loads of petticoats.. All told I am really pleased with Dracula clothing. I did order this a tad late for Christmas, yet it still turned up on time, it took about ten days. Make sure you follow sizing chart and instructions well as this is a snug fit. (Posted on 12/21/2019)
