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 University President Herzberger, the extra bars present an added level of elegance and authority to the Presidents Gown.
Adding Presidential Bars to a Professional doctoral gown or choir robe is an extra $25.00 per set. We cannot add a set of bars to a Verona style robe. Please note that if you are buying just the bars without a robe, there may be a minimum order fee (for the total of your entire order, not just this product) of $50 during the busy graduation season of April through June.
PLEASE NOTE: BY PURCHASING THESE BARS, YOU ARE NOT PURCHASING THE ROBE WITH IT – JUST THE EXTRA BARS. To purchase the robe, you will need to buy a Professional Doctoral Gown separately (and these bars as an additional item). If purchasing multiple gowns, please be sure to mention in the comments section of your order which Professional gown you want the extra bars added to.
