Product Questions

1. How do I know my size for my graduation gown?

To make sure your graduation gown fits well, you will need to know your height with shoes on. A sizing chart can be seen here. There is no size for the graduation caps, it is a one-size-fits-all elasticated cap.

2. How many colors can I have in my tassle?

Tassles are made up of either one or two colors only.

3. What different fabrics do graduation gowns come in?

We offer graduation gowns in a matte and shiny fabric. The different finish gives the gown a different look. Matte fabric has a classic, flat finish look, while the shiny fabric has a smoother and brighter appearance. Both look fantastic!

4. What are the different styles of graduation cap and gowns used for?

A standard cap and gown is for all graduation levels, from kindergarten students through to college graduates. For postgraduate students and academic faculty, there are different kinds and styles of caps and gowns. Masters and doctoral gowns are generally made from slightly thicker, higher quality velvet fabric with more details and stylings.
Additionally, doctoral graduates and faculty staff such as professors may choose to wear a different style of cap. Tams are a popular choice of cap, again made from a thicker, higher velvet fabric and comes with a gold tassle. Tams can have four sides, normally reserved for Master’s graduates, and a six and eight side version for doctoral graduates and academic staff.

5. What colors do I need for my hood?

The colors of your graduation hood are determined by your school and degree. The inner lining indicates the institution that awarded the degree, and the velvet color band signifies the field study of the degree.There is no standardized list for the colors, so you should contact your school to be sure you get the colors right!

6. How do I wear my hood?

Place the hood over your head, draping it over your shoulders and making sure the velvet side is facing up, and the small tapered end is in the front. Some hoods will have a cord or a button at the front, fasten it to a button of your shirt to keep it in place. Get someone to help you to ensure the back cord is secured and the back of the hood is kept together and smoothed out flat.
