Cassocks, Exorassa, & Kontorassa (Clergy Vests)

All of my cassocks and exorassa are custom-tailored. I offer a wide range of fabrics so that you can have a garment suitable for any situation or weather and am happy to help you choose which fabric meets your needs best.

Cassocks (also known as inner cassock, zostikon, or anterri) come with reversible fronts, drawstring belt, fully-functioning button cuffs, decorative stitching on fronts and cuffs, and hip pockets with pass-through (you can access your pants pocket through a slit in the back of the hip pocket). Chest pockets have a cellphone/pen pocket. You have your choice of cross-over or mandarin collar (see photos below). Delivery on cassocks is usually 4-6 weeks. Additional cassock options are shown at the bottom of this page.

Exorassa (also known as outer cassock, rassa, jibbee, or rhiassa) come with lined fronts and sleeves, and mandarin collar finished with silk knot button. Delivery on exorassa is usually 4-6 weeks;.

Kontorassa (clergy vests) are available in standard sizes (M, L, XL, XXL, & XXXL) for immediate shipment and can also be custom-tailored if needed (please allow 2-4 weeks).

Rush service is available on cassocks and exorassa; please email me for details if this is needed so I can make sure I can meet your deadline.

Cassock Options

My cassocks typically have a drawstring casing and belts, but if you prefer, I can leave off the belts and gather up the casing with elastic instead. This provides a cleaner line along the front of the garment which is preferred by some clergy. I can also change the decorative stitching thread color, for example, using charcoal gray thread on black or navy fabrics (gray and navy cassocks come finished with black thread unless you specify otherwise). If you have a special request, please let me know.
