Doctoral Tams Black (Silk Band)
Designed for Master's and Doctoral graduates, our Tams are sewn from black velvet and adorned with a gold bullion tassel. Our tams elegantly adhere to academic regalia standards. An adjustable silk satin band permits a comfortable, personalized fit for men and women who wear hat sizes x-small to x-large (19in to 25in).
Choosing Between the Four, Six and Eight Sided Tams:
Our black velvet doctoral tams are available with four, six and eight sides. While some universities may require a specific design, the style is typically determined by the degree recipient. Not sure what style you want? Generally speaking, shorter, rounder people tend to prefer the four or six sided tams, as less sides lends a more angular, slimming appearance. Likewise, taller, skinnier people often prefer the eight sided tams; the rounded caps flatter a fuller figure. All styles are acceptable for both men and women. If you're having a difficult time deciding on the number of sides, we recommend the six-sided tam - it's our best seller.
