Great quality! I love it. And the shipping was fast and easy. Thanks so much! This is so much better than paying twice the cost at my university.

Great robes & great customer service
I've wanted a proper set of doctoral regalia for many years to wear to faculty events. The PhinesheD robes are extremely high quality; excellent materials, great attention to detail, and expertly sewn. Everything arrived very quickly, and the customer service was absolutely top-notch. I'm very happy with my purchase and to see high-quality competition in this niche industry (not that many people make regalia for MIT).

Nice gown but how to wear hood?
The gown detailing is quite nice. The one thing that is a bit non-optimal about the whole outfit is that when you add the very heavy hood from the school, it is really hard to keep it from riding up and pressing on your neck too much. Attaching to the front buttons of the robe tends to make the front of the robe rumple up a bit. Attaching to interior clothes is challenging because it just untucks a shirt. The button on the back of the gown does help hold up the hood, but the position of the hood being above the edge of the gown means it is still a very high neckline. I don't think this is any fault of the Phinished gown, but is probably just the design of the hood. I watched a bunch of online videos about how to attach the hood, but if anyone has more tips about how to not get slightly strangled, please do share!

I just finished my PhD at MIT and I recently received the regalia. The craftsmanship is fantastic. I haven't yet compared it to the $800 version that the coop sells but from my memory it is exact. Initially I thought the gown price on this website was high but after seeing the quality, I understand it and think it is a fine deal. Thanks!
