Our deluxe style doctoral robes is available with black velvet (doctoral robe style) or with PhD blue velvet (PhD robe style). Both of these styles are in stock for immediate shipment.
We can also custom make doctoral gowns with choice of a different velvet (other than black or PhD blue), or with a different fabric (other than black) or with piping added to front velvet and to velvet bars on sleeves.
The basic deluxe doctoral robe (or deluxe doctoral gown) black with black velvet -- and black with PhD blue velvet (deluxe PhD gown) is pictured below:
The cost of either of the above gowns is $290.00
We generally have the above gowns
in both black velvet and/ or Ph.D. blue velvet
to ship right away!
Or if you prefer, we can add piping to your gown:
The cost for piping is + $75.00 (so doctoral gown with piping costs $290 + 75.00 = $365.00).
In addition to the deluxe black velvet doctoral gown @ $290.00 and the deluxe PhD blue velvet gown @ $290.00, we also try to keep the PhD blue velvet gown with piping (as shown above) in stock, as well as the black velvet doctoral gown with piping @ $365.00
Other customization options include changing the fabric of your gown from black to a different color:
Or we can change the velvet of your gown --
Or we can change the velvet and add piping --
Or we can change the fabric and the velvet and add piping --
It's all up to you.
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.
We also offer a "faculty quality" doctoral gown priced at $175.00
The faculty doctoral robe is priced available in black only (with black velvet) and has open sleeves rather than the "bell sleeves" of the deluxe doctoral robe.
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 often times, 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
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.
