The cassock is a type of ankle-length vestment that is similar in shape to a robe. During services, it is worn under other vestments such as the alb. Cassocks are worn by select members of the clergy and the color of the cassock may vary depending on the occasion for which it is worn. While the cassock used to be considered everyday wear for members of the clergy, modern church members typically only wear a cassock during worship services. Some styles include a clerical collar.
Matthew F. Sheehan offers a full selection of clergy cassocks to choose from in a variety of styles and colors. Our cassocks are made by well-known brands including R.J. Toomey, Slabbinck, the Abbey Brand and more. These brands have a reputation for quality and make their cassocks from fine linen materials for superior comfort and breathability. Styles are available with or without a collar.
Cassocks are sold in several colors. The color of the cassock may be determined by the occasion for which it is worn. Black cassocks are very popular, but purple and green cassocks are also available. Depending on the denomination, the color of the cassock may indicate the occasion for which it is worn or the position of the wearer. Most styles of bishop cassocks open in the front and include a button closure. Traditional bishop cassock styles include 33 buttons to signify the years of Christ's life.
