DoctoralTam page




doctoral gown


Although not required, most faculty members who have doctorates purchase the doctoral tam, in place of a plain black mortarboard, to differentiate themselves from their students and colleagues without doctoral degrees.



doctoral tams


Doctoral tams are available in your choice of four, six, or eight corners and in your choice of either a gold silky or gold metallic jumbo doctoral tassels, or with plain tassels.



phd tam



We keep doctoral tams in stock in traditional black velvet, and can also make them in your choice of colors such as Red or Blue.

phd tam


Most professors and faculty members choose six or eight sided doctoral tams.

Extremely tall and skinny people may do better with the 8 corner tam since it tends to look more round, and help "fill a person out", while short stocky people may do better with a 4 corner model, since it is sharper and thus makes the person look "less round".

The cost of the four - six - or eight sided tams are $92.00 with the bullion tassel or $78.50 with the silky tassel

If purchasing the doctoraltam without a gown, the price of the four and six sided tam is the same as shown above, but the eight sided tam is $20.00 extra.

Tams in blue or red or other velvet colors other than black are $20.00 extra.


doctoral tam

When ordering your doctoral tam, be sure to indicate your hat size or your head size. Using a tape, measure the circumference of your head about an inch over your eyebrow. the size should be in the neighborhood of 22 to 23 1/2 inches. It should be snug but not too tight. Round size to nearest quarter inch. If you are between sizes, err to the larger quarter inch. A cap size would be something like 6 7/8, 7 1/4, 7 3/8, etc.
