Elite Doctoral Gown

Our elite doctorate gown is our most prestigious and best quality gown that we offer. The finish is matte with no sheen so these gowns will look fantastic in photos! Made with a higher quality polyester, our elite doctoral gowns have several notable features. These robes include fully customizable piping, velvet pleats down the center and the chevrons on both arms. They also include a padded yoke, hand sewn fluting and a fabric covered button on the back of the gown for hood attachment. All of our doctorate gowns have adjustable velcro lantern sleeves for a fitted, distinguished look. Another reason your higher-education faculty members should consider our gowns is that you can add a custom embroidered logo for no additional charge.

The gown is made of a lightweight yet elegant polyester material that will keep your graduate or staff member comfortable throughout the ceremony. The fit of the gown could be described as a long, loosely-fitted garment with a full front zipper and wide sleeves with adjustable cuffs. This dense and durable fabric holds its shape perfectly and is designed to resist wrinkles so your graduation participants will look their best before, during and after the ceremony.

  • What is the difference between Economy, Deluxe, and Premium style for the Bachelors, Masters and Doctorate gowns?

    These Economy and Deluxe style gowns have the same material, satin polyester which has a slight sheen. The main difference between the two is the deluxe has a hand sewn fluting around the yoke of the gown (doctoral deluxe gowns also have piping while the economy does not). Premium gowns are a matte polyester with fluting and available in all colors.

  • Can you describe the physical differences between a Bachelor, Master, and Doctorate gown?

    The bachelor's gown is traditionally a black gown which includes a pleated yolk with fluting. These gowns are distinguished by higher quality fabric from the regular adult gowns worn in lower institution ceremonies. Students who are graduating from a master's program have specific requirements for their gowns. It has fluting across the front panel of the shoulders that reaches to the back of the gown. The sleeves are the most obvious difference of a master's gown. The front of the sleeve extends from the wrist, at the front and drops all the way down to the mid-thigh. Doctorate gowns are reserved for faculty members and students graduating with a PHD. These are thicker, typically black gowns with three velvet bands on the sleeves and piping down the middle-front side. The piping outlines two thick velvet panels in additional to hand-made ruffled pleats and a padded yolk. These robes have full sleeves as opposed to bell sleeves on standard gowns. Our doctorate gowns are durable and can be reused many times if needed.
