Souvenir Quality Doctoral Robes

Our Souvenir Quality gowns are traditionally styled with velvet front velvet panels starting at the yoke of the gown, and finishing at the hem. They also feature full sleeves with three velvet stripes (chevrons) on each arm.

Gowns in black with black velvet are usually available for immediate shipment.

Additionally, we offer quantity discounts on these gowns.
The price will depend upon the quantity of caps and gowns (sets) being purchased.

Few faculty members choose Souvenir Quality gowns, since they can be used only once or twice. However, many schools choose Souvenir Quality over rental because we can sell them at below rental prices.

Each set comes individually wrapped with a cap, gown, and tassel.

Hoods are not included with the set. Order tams here.
