Our Standard 6-sided Velvet Tams comes with a gold metallic tassel.
The Tams have a metallic tassel sewn onto them which gives a special shine to them more than the silky ones generally sold elsewhere.
Because these tams are made of velvet, it would not matter which fabric your gown is made from; you could still purchase the tams without fear of mismatching. This differs from hoods which should preferably be made from the same fabric quality as the gown.Â
Most faculty members who have doctoral degrees purchase tams to differentiate themselves from students and non-doctors.
Measure about one inch above your ears around the entire head.
- S/M fits hat size 6 3/8 - 7 1/8 (21" - 22.25" around the head)
- Standard fits hat size 7 - 7 3/5 (22" - 24" around the head)
The tam is perfect. I like that the tassel is secured to the tam. It's less hassle for me. I like the velcro part which adjusts to my head.
The tam is made well and with nice materials, but the one size fits all is for people with tiny heads. Completely wide open and un-velcroed, the tam only sits the crown of my head.
My head is usually 7 3/8, but this tam is a bit too small.
