Piping or other customizaiton generally takes about 8 weeks, however if you are in a rush, we can probably send you a loaner gown while the custom doctoral robe is being made. Then when the custom doctoral gown is ready, it will be sent to you, and you can return the loaner gown. There is no charge for this service.

Velvet tams and /or mortarboards may be worn with our gowns.
Mortarboards are available at no charge (with purchase of gown), however most facutly members purchase tams.
Doctoral tams are $92.00 with the gold bullion tassel; or $78.50 with the silky tassel. Tams are available in choice of four-sided; six-sided; or 8-sided models. Black doctoral tams are generally IN STOCK in all sizes for immediate shipment.
When ordering a tam, we will need to know your head size (or hat size), whether you want a 4 sided; 6 sided; or 8 sided tam, and which tassel you want with it.
Doctoral tams can also be special made in other than black velvet (i.e. PhD tams using PhD blue velvet to match the blue velvet on our deluxe PhD gowns) for $20.00 additional.

We also make custom academic hoods - PhD hoods and doctoral hoods for all degrees (Ed.D.; J.D.; M.D.; D.Sci; D.Div; etc).
The cost for a deluxe hood is $130.00
When ordering an academic hood, please be sure to include your degree (so we'll know which color velvet to use) and which school you graduated from. Also please include the location of your school, since oftentimes, the school colors may vary within the same university, between one campus and another.
If you are ordering a gown with piping, you may wish to add piping to your hood as well.
The cost for a deluxe doctoral hood with piping is $145.00
Doctoral Hood Order Form
Although most hoods are made to order (and therefore take +/- 8 weeks to make), if you need to wear your regalia sooner than that, we may be able to send you a loaner hood together with your cap and gown that you can wear until you receive your real hood. This way, you'll have a complete set of doctoral regalia right away, to save you the expense of renting. Then when your real doctoral hood arrives, just send us back the loaner hood.
