Great service and speed of delivery
I have not worn it yet, but am very much looking forward to doing so. It is better quality than the one I originally had, but which got misplaced.
Just as expected
I even made an error, and they quickly fixed the problem. Great process and product.
Perfect Replacement Hood
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!
The hood is beautiful!
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.
