Hexagon Faculty Tam - All Velvet Exterior

$29.00 Regular price $45.00
SKU: tam-blk-6

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.

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)

This cap totally made my husband's "COVID-19" doctoral graduation the BEST! It was a last-minute order, because I was trying hard to come up with an appropriately WOW-type celebration amidst the social distancing. I spent extra on one-day shipping - then emailed with Kelly at Cap&GownDirect - and she got it to us at the perfect moment! Huzzah!
THIS IS A GREAT CAP and a super company to work with - thanks!
(And my husband wore it to work the next day - so fun - thanks again!)

Great quality

Fit: Runs Small
Tight and has obvious Velcro connection

It fits small and the place where the hat adjusts has a big bulbous area that makes it obvious it's adjustable.
