Here we see the last Papal Coronation Mass in June of 1963. This is back before the hippies changed even the way we worship.
Today the masses attend Papal Mass in t-shirt and jeans. But back in the day it was different. Until our modern era every item for use in the "holy of holies" had always been of the purest quality.
For example, pure linen altar cloths (today, all polyester), all starched cottas (today, all linen blend), all pure silk (today, all fake whatever), all hand-made items (today, all machine made), real beeswax hand-painted candles (today, all plastic/oil), all wool cassocks with starched linen collars (today, imitation garments and plastic collars), etc.
