indicates the degree (for example dark royal for Ph.D; light blue for
Ed.D; hunter green for Medicine etc.) and the school colors are
indicated on the satin lining.
- Ph.D. Hoods
- Please keep in
mind that dark royal blue is used for all Ph.D. degree holders,
regardless of specialty of discipline. So, for example, while an Ed.D.
receives light blue signifying education, a Ph.D in Education uses the
Ph.D blue. For that reason, to avoid confusion, Ph.D. holders should
order their hoods as Ph.D. hoods and NOT as doctor of (specialty) hoods.
- Doctor Hoods
- Doctors who are
not Ph.D holders, such as Ed.D., M.D., J.D., etc., should order their
gowns and hoods as "doctor gown" or "doctor hood", rather than as "Ph.D
gown" or "Ph.D hood", and then specify the color velvet for gown
(black, light blue, hunter green, purple, etc.,) and color of velvet
for the hood.
- Specify exact
degree for velvet
- Remember that
all Ph.D. holders receive the dark Ph.D blue velvet regardless of the
discipline/specialty of their Ph.D. whereas bachelors/masters/doctors
(non Ph.D) would receive their degree color.

you do not purchase a tam, and would like a mortarboard sent to you at

to fit most people much better than the old "sized" caps. However most
faculty members feel most comfortable in a tam.

One of the nice
things about our company is that we give personal attention to each
order. We also offer free loaners, so if there isn't time to make you
what you need when you need it, we would rush you loaner regalia while
your regalia is being made. When you're done with it, just send it back
to us. We do, however, work hard to keep most items in stock.
We have real human
beings here! If you would like you can also call us toll free at
1-800-788-9336; however generally in order to avoid phone tag, e-mail
seems to work the best most of the time.
Thank you for
contacting us, and we look forward to facilitating your regalia
Terms of sale
Caps and Gowns NOW is a division of Saxon Uniform
Network, Inc. If you are paying by check, please make
payable to Saxon Uniform Network, Inc. If you are paying by credit
card, your charge will read Saxon Uniform Network
If for whatever
reason the cap or gown you purchase does not fit, we would be glad to
exchange it for a larger or smaller size. If the cap or gown you
purchase is made incorrectly, we will be glad to remake it for you at
academic regalia sales are final. We have had to implement this policy
due to the fact that some people looking for a "free rental" have
bought caps and gowns from us, only to return them after commencement
for one reason or another. The only exceptions to our 'all sales final'
rule is as follows: Customers who purchase economy or classic robes
from us, and then decide to upgrade will be given full credit of their
purchase price towards the classic or deluxe gown/hood/tam purchase
within one year of their original purchase, provided the original is
still in new condition. So, for example, if a person purchased a
economy gown for $80.00 and later decided to upgrade to a $175.00 set,
we would upon receipt of their economy gown, credit them the $80.00,
and they would only need to pay $95.00 If a person purchased a $175.00
classic gown and decided to upgrade to the deluxe, then they could
return the gown for a $175.00 credit and would only need to pay
$115.00. Please note that all custom hoods, being custom made (school
and discipline colors) cannot be upgraded.
wishing to upgrade or needing to exchange their gowns for a different
size should contact our office before shipping to obtain a return
How long will it
take to get my order?
delivery policy is 6-8 weeks, from the time of payment of your order,
until delivery. However, we are often able to get the caps and gowns to
you much sooner than that, especially for in-stock (non custom made)
items. If the gown is in stock, but the hood must be made, we can often
send you a loaner hood. Let us say, for example, that you want a Ph.D.
cap and gown that we can ship the same day. You need to march in three
weeks, but the color hood you need takes 6-8 weeks to make. We can send
you a substitute hood upon receipt of your payment. While this may not
be the exact color you need, it is better than not having a hood at
all, and most people don't know the difference anyway. In the meantime,
we can begin making your custom color hood. We send out your cap, gown,
tassel, and loaner hood right away. As soon as the custom hood is
ready, it is sent to you. Upon receipt of the actual hood, you send us
back the loaner! We are also often able to do this with custom gowns by
sending you a loaner gown upon receipt of order, while your deluxe or
custom gown is being made. This arrangement has helped many faculty
members who need hoods or special gowns right away! And we don't charge
any extra for it either. Please indicate your NEED DATE when placing
your order, and we will try to accommodate!
For even faster
rush service, we offer air shipping (at a slightly higher charge). If
you have any questions, or if you would like to check whether the type
of gown you are looking for is in stock, please call or e-mail us.
