A square neck surplice is a variation on the more common rounded neck variety. A surplice is a liturgical vestment that looks similar to a white linen tunic. It often extends to the knees or ankles and has wide sleeves. The garment may be plain or decorated with embroidery and other embellishments.
Square neck styles are popular for those who wish to have their underlying garments visible. Priests and clergy that wear a decorated piece under the surplice will enjoy the opportunity to allow the collar of their undershirt to show. The subtle detailing on the piece enhances the design and highlights other pieces that are being worn without overwhelming them.
