The doctorate gown is produced from a high quality material which resists fading and wrinkling. It is all black with bell sleeves featuring three horizontal velvet bands. On the front, a strip of velvet runs the length of the gown on either side of the zipper. The cap is all black as well, with a sturdy mortarboard construction and a snug fit. The color scheme of the hood is indicative of the university and department from which your degree is conferred. However, tassels are uniformly Old Gold across all departments.
For example, the red and white inside of the hoods pictured are for NC State University. Likewise, the actual inside colors of the hood you receive will be representative of the university that awarded your degree.
