Product Details

Doctoral Tam


The eight-sided tam is made of our finest black plush velvet, which is recognized worldwide as the industry standard. A yellow silk tassel is included with the tam. A gold bullion tassel can be included for an additional $20.

What is the difference between the silk and the gold bullion tassels?

First the similarities: The silk and gold bullion tassels are identically shaped (you can see the bulbous shape in the pictures), and both are produced from fine material. The gold bullion tassel has greater shine and is hand-made, therefore it is more expensive.

The choice of which tassel to select is a personal preference. Some prefer the silk, some like the metallic gold bullion. Silk tassel comes standard on all tams.

Tam: Plush Velvet

Great 8 cornered cap

Adjustable sizing for cap was very helpful

I ordered a large cap

It was easy to order and arrived in a timely manner. The only problem is that there was some fraying of the tassel and some globs of glue on the velvet. Very satisfied with the size because it accommodates any hairstyle I may have.

A quality cap, not cheaply made at all. Outstanding customer service When first cap was lost in the mail the company immediately sent a second via UPS.
