Other Cap and Gown Ordering Option (PhD ONLY)

From Ceremonial Attire Inc.:

"Stanford PhD candidates have an opportunity to obtain high quality Stanford doctoral gowns at drastically reduced prices through the Ceremonial Attire web site at http://www.capgown.com.

The official Stanford apparel includes a two-colored gown and a Cardinal colored satin hood trimmed with velvet. In previous years many graduate students had found the gowns to be prohibitively expensive. The Ceremonial Attire makes high quality gowns available with savings of $250-$350 per gown. Ceremonial Attire provides a protective garment bag free of charge. The gown will be delivered directly to you. You will not have to wait in line to rent and return items during the commencement chaos. All items include a 100% satisfaction-guaranteed return policy.  The resplendent Stanford gown is a perfect epilogue for your hard work and a fitting prologue to your future career. It is also an impeccable graduation gift. Quantities are limited.  You can order now at http://www.capgown.com. The website includes pictures and testimonials from some of our many satisfied customers. Ceremonial Attire has been serving the Stanford community since 1998.  Questions? Email: info@capgown.com."
