Dissertation committee in Portugal
I was pleased to serve on a committee in Portugal and found the rental service a perfect alternative to purchasing since there was adequate time built into the rental agreement to account for travel. Gown was in great condition and video helped me remember how to fasten the hood. Thanks for the great service!
Better than anything my university offered!
My specific UC campus refused to offer anything other than the cheapest, most dollar-store-feeling regalia to us doctoral candidates. I was so happy to find the affordable deal at CapGown for myself and my bestie! The regalia from Capgown was of phenomenal quality. It came packaged conveniently and neatly, and it both looked and felt high quality. The fabric was thick and felt lovely to the touch, and the colors were beautiful deep blue and vibrant gold, just as I wished for. They made me feel like a wizard! The hood in particular felt way nicer than the cheap, limp, slippery hood offered by my campus. The CapGown option was way more structured and stayed in place much better. A+ on this product, highly recommended!
Great quality at the same price as UCD
The regalia I rented through CapGown was much nicer quality than what I would have rented through the university, at essentially the same price. It was also way more fun wearing a tam than the standard square hat provided by my university for most PhD graduations. Also loved that the robe has pockets! Be warned, though, this thing is essentially a heavy blanket so be prepared to be toasty if you live in a warm climate.
