Quality: the real Roman sottana (soutane)...
This is your Roman cut cassock with fascia from Ditta Annibale Gammarelli in Rome's Via Santa Chiara, 34.

Any idea what current prices are like?
However, of course, no self-respecting cleric would wear a fascia that was not part of a habit when within the diocese of Rome. This was always the Roman custom for ecclesiastics!
Incidentally, allow me to take this opportunity to say what an absolutely splendid blog this is, and how you have some very interesting posts that often lead me to want to look into things in greater detail. Keep up the good work!
I second the above post..This blog indeed stirs my interest in checking out other sites to deepen my knowledge of may fatih and customs..I check it every few days, though rarely comment. The blooger seems to capture the essence of the topic with few words and a perfect picture. The soutane, how I wish to see it on the streets of NYC..Maybe someday, again. Catholic clergy should be in clerical dress and remind the public of its' presence..It is a subtle way of evangelizing peoples in a sublime way. When a Father wears secular clothing whether on the subway, walking down the street, or in a store they are invisible to us (lay people). In these modern times I think the faith should once again on display, and remind people during their busy days of our faith.
Have you ever read the "self-respecting" decrees of the Roman Synd of 1960? The fascia substitutes for the feraiolo in the summer.
