Hello, I was wondering if anyone can give me some advice regarding sites/sources for mid-late Victorian era clothing. I'm looking for a relatively legit and functional three piece suit (with a tailcoat/morning coat) shoes, and tophat. Nothing flimsy, Which pretty much excludes area costumers. I've no idea which sites are reliable, cost effective, and high quality.

Does the Mrs sew?
That may be the best route.

Thanks for the links all. I'm considering making the ensemble myself, with Mrs. Dr Mathias' help. This is one of those cases where spending a little money would save a LOT of time ;)

The sewing academy is a great resource, particularly for those interested in threading a needle, as if you needed another time intensive hobby?
