The Verona line is based on a more functional, basic design than the professional/faculty line. The fabric is a matte black or royal blue (your choice). Intended for student graduates, beginning teachers, or a guest lecturer, or assistant or adjunct professor who want to wait a few years before buying a professional set of regalia, a Verona masters regalia is a satisfactory solution to hold you over until you can obtain a more durable professional set.
The Verona gown is distinguised from our Keeper style souvenir gown, in that the Verona offers a pleated front for more room in the design and a better fit. We also use Pellon-grade interlining, which reinforces the yoke (upper portion near the collar) for longer lasting wear. We have extended the bottom hem to a full inch, which offers more balance and a cleaner hang due to the extra weight at the bottom. Finally, the Verona fabric is a superior fabric to our Keeper line of polyester, with a matte finish as opposed to a shiny finish, and more durability in the wash. You can safely wash these robes, and they should last for several years.
This gown does not come with a mortarboard or tam. If you need a mortarboard or tam (and/or tassel), please order that item separately.
