Tenue de ville!
Crossing the streets of Rome:Hey, cool Italian cleric with his mamma and bodyguard. Of course the only color proper to the clergy is black; in fact, black is more accurately defined as being colorless! For nine centures black has been used by Cathholic clergy as a sign of uniformity, poverty, humility, etc. Black is always available, timeless, economical, doesn't show when soiled and is always fashionable! Only in the tropics, by special papal indult, the use of white is permitted in the place of black for Catholic clergy.
