The body of the hood is constructed of dark blue polyester crepe and plush velvet. Royal Blue velvet denotes the Ph.D. degree and Kelly Green velvet denoted the M.D. degree. The hood is lined with luminous satin in blue and gold, signifying the University of California’s colors. The entire hood is finished with gold satin trim.
All University of California Doctoral graduates wear the same officially designed UC regalia.

I even made an error, and they quickly fixed the problem. Great process and product.
My original regalia (PhD ’78) has held up well, except the blue part of the hood lining had faded to faint purple so that it looked more like a UW hood than a UC hood. So even though I have only a few commencements to go, it need to be replaced. Quality looks great and the price represents real value. Very pleased.
Great quality. Quick shipping. And best of all, way cheaper than the bookstore or the company that our university recommended. I am completely happy!
There is no comparison to the hood provided by the university store. The fabric is rich and heavy. the stitching clean and even. I am so happy with the master's hood I purchased from CapGown and now, my son's doctoral hood.
I ordered the University of California doctoral hood and it arrived just a couple days later- the UCLA bookstore said it would have been 6-8 weeks to order! As far as I can tell the quality is great and it looks the same as from the bookstore. Capgown was a lifesaver, thank you!
