Regalia are fine.
The shipment was delayed. But it arrived. And the regalia seem fine even though I bought used ones.
High quality while still the least expensive option available
I got a full set of regalia, purchased used. Everything was high quality, looked unused, and arrived quickly. Since I wanted to purchase rather than rent, this was several hundreds of dollars cheaper than I could find elsewhere.
Great price for the UC PhD gown
So glad I found this discounted price for the gown! Now I get to feel like a fancy graduate for a fraction of the price. Thank you to CAPGOWN!
Doctorate regalia University of California
Great service and product. Received everything very quickly. Nicely packaged and comes with protective cover when you need to hang it.
Making graduation affordable!
The material and appearance were just as new, I would not have known the difference! This was the lowest price that I could find, and I was not disappointed. You deserve to get this when completing your degree. We all worked too hard to not document the moment!
