I started a new faculty position in the midst of the pandemic. As more people got vaccinated, it became clear that I needed to purchase my faculty regalia for in-person commencement. Many of the other vendors I found could not guarantee delivery in less than five weeks. But my commencement was only three weeks away. I received my regalia within three days of placing the order. It looks great and it cost less than those same vendors who could not deliver. I am very grateful and impressed.
Great product and great service.
The doctoral regalia sizing is true to fit, looks identical to the one sold through the campus bookstore, and its price is very affordable at a 1/3 of the cost of the the campus bookstore. Farbod was very helpful when I called asking for help with sizing.
The first gown I received was a little too short, so I emailed Cap Gown to let them know. Within an hour, they replied back and told me that they’d already shipped a larger gown along with a packing slip to ship back the original. What amazing customer service! The quality of the item is great and I can’t believe how inexpensive it was compared to my university bookstore’s price. Very happy with my purchase.
