This Verona Doctoral Regalia is based on a more functional, basic design than the professional/faculty line. The fabric is a matte black, and the panels and bars are made from black velveteen, and framed with gold cord (you can remove the cord, or change the cord color to black, for an additional fee).
Intended for student graduates, beginning teachers, or a guest lecturer, assistant or adjunct professor who want to wait a few years before buying a professional set of regalia. A Verona doctoral gown is a satisfactory solution to hold you over until you can obtain a more durable professional set.
This 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. While the image portrayed to the right includes a tam and hood, Verona tams and hoods are sold separately from this gown-only product.
