Exquisite Clergy Cassocks from IvyRobes

The traditional clergy soutane is a long garment worn by Roman Catholic priests, deacons, and other clergy in everyday and liturgical settings. Paired with a clergy shirt, white surplice, and matching band cincture, the outer black robe typically features long sleeves with button closures, fitting the body closely. In the Roman Catholic Church, liturgical vestment colors and trims vary with the wearer's ecclesiastical rank: the pope dons a plain white cassock robe, cardinals wear black cassocks with scarlet trim, archbishops and bishops wear black with red trim, and only a few clergies choose a plain black cassock. During choir and church ceremonies, the pope wears a white silk choir robe, while cardinals wear scarlet or red cassocks, except in specific cases during penitential seasons when they wear purple albs.
