The highest quality is the Professional or Faculty Doctoral Regalia, made for faculty members or graduates looking for a long term and durable set of academic regalia that lasts many years.

The professional PhD Gown is a top notch faculty-quality professional robe from Academic Cap and Gown.

Verona Doctoral Regalia
This Verona Doctoral Regalia is based on a more functional, basic pattern. The fabric includes a professiponal matte black sheen as opposed to the shiny one found with our Keeper line of souvenir graduation gowns. Intended for student graduates, teachers in their first few years on the job, assistant professors, adjunct professors, visiting lecturers, and those waiting a couple of years before buying a professional set of regalia. A set of Verona Doctoral Regalia supplies a good alternative to the pricier Professional regalia to hold you over while you wait for the time when you can afford the more durable and precise professional set.
Verona doctoral gowns come standard with a black base fabric, black velvet bars, and gold cord/trim around the velvet bars. If you would prefer a different robe color, please call to arrange for this (at a slightly higher price). Selecting no cord/trim or a different color cord/trim (like black) is also a slightly higher price, and this alteration is available for selection with the online ordering form.
Verona robe varies from our souvenir gowns, because it uses a pleated front,
more room in the design, a better fit, Pellon-grade interlining to reinforce
the yoke (upper portion near the collar), and longer wear. The bottom hem
is also extended to an inch, which provides balance and better hang with
the extra bottom weight. The fabric is also superior to our Keeper line
of polyester, with a matte finish and stronger weave for more durability
in the wash, allowing you to safely use a washing machine with these doctoral
gowns, and they should last for several years. Tams and Hoods are sold separately.
Pricing is dependant on quantity purchased, ranging from $174.63 to $243.32. Please see the links in the left-hand menu for details.
Professional University President Robe
A University President Robe is the same as our professional doctoral gown, however with the addition of an extra velvet doctoral bar on each sleeve.
Seen here in this photo of Whittier College President Herzberger, the extra bars present an added level of elegance and authority to the Presidents Gown.
Adding Presidential Bars to a doctoral gown is an extra $25.00 per set. If ordering online, order a professional doctoral gown (President's bars are not offered with our Verona line) and order the set of bars separately. Mention in the comments section of your order that you are having the extra bars added to the doctoral robe.
