The "Louis" Men's Cotton Lab Coat


Lab coats are holding scientists back, and together we’re going to fix that.

See Men's Size Chart Here.

Now available and ready to ship!

This lab coat is made from 100% cotton and all-metal snaps, which is accepted in most standard laboratory environments including introductory chemistry and biology lab classes. Please check with your lab safety officer for compatibility.


100% Cotton provides better protection against flames than polyester or poly-cotton mixtures because polyester will melt to your skin and prevent emergency lab coat removal. 100% cotton is not “FR”, “flame-retardant” or “fire-proof”, and will burn slowly if exposed to intense flames. If your lab requires “FR” lab coats, get on our email list for our future release with flame retardant materials.


Most lab coat materials, including 100% cotton, absorb strong acids and may develop holes from exposure. Always wear a neoprene, rubber, or PVC apron and long acid-resistant gloves on top of your lab coat when handling strong acids.

What a difference.

Put my new Genius labcoat on this morning for a microbiology practical and don't want to doff it! It's functional, a perfect fit and I love the cuffs, pockets and the other details! It's paying that bit more; I would recommend it!

Harley Richker
Best coat on the market

This lab coat is by far the best you can buy. Will be recommending this company to my lab and institution.

Alex M
A legitimately better lab coat

Am I medical laboratory scientist, my experience with this lab coat will be primarily in clinical chemistry, hematology, and urinalysis.

Genius really delivered on this one, I love the coat. Pockets are thoughtfully placed and perfectly sized. The fit is excellent, I’m 6’3” and 170lbs, so I ordered a small (I measured chest and waist and used the size guide). It’s the first lab coat that made me feel like I look professional. The pleats in the back are effective, the coat doesn’t ride up when I reach far forward or above my head. The fabric seems hydrophobic, I’ve spilled a little fluid on mine already and it rolled right off. Would definitely buy again, and I’ll be considering ordering a few as graduation gifts for our students.

Lee Haarmann
Great fit, lots of pockets

It is a well made lab coat , and a great quality for the price paid. It looks good for wearing at work or even home.

Aidan D McFarland
Feature-rich lab coat

It has everything you want, and some things you didn't know you wanted. You can use the internal belt with buttons to make it more fitted, and the micropipette loop is one of the features I was most looking forward to. Plenty of pockets large and small, with zippered access to your pants pockets without having to awkwardly lift the coat. It's also cotton, which makes dyeing it for personalization pretty easy. Overall, the most feature-rich coat I've come across.

Marc, Chemistry Educator

"I love my Louis lab coat. As a high school chemistry teacher I have more than enough pockets to keep track of the pens, stamps, etc is phenomenal. I love the cuffed sleeves and the belt that helps keep me from getting caught on lab tables as I move around the tables. I know the final version will only get better."
