Academic Graduation Caps - doctoral tams
Full academic dress regalia for faculty members with doctorates generally include the doctoral gown (academic gown with velvet bars on the sleeves), doctoral hood, and an academic hat (mortarboard or doctoral tam).
Although not normally "required", most faculty member's choose to wear velvet tams in place of mortarboards, as they look much nicer, are more comfortable on the head, and and help differentiate between the faculty member and his/her student.
Academic Tams (doctoral tams) are available with choice of "silky tassel" or gold bullion tassel.
Tams are also available in 4 -- 6 -- and 8 -- sided models.
Tams are normally made of black velvet, however we can make them for you in other velvets, for special regalia. The PhD blue velvet tam has become increasingly popular.
Red "Beefeater" caps (also known as Beefeaters) are also available.
Prices of graduation tams are shown below.

This page deals with doctoral tams (doctoraltams) and other caps for used for full academic attire -- doctoral regalia -- available at academic-regalia-depot.com
Doctoraltams are available in black, or can be made with blue velvet, also known as PhD tams (PhDtams) in which the velvet of the academic cap matches the velvet of the PhD gown.
Both doctoraltams and PhD tams can be made with choice of bullion tassel or silky tassel. Both of these doctoral tassels are gold jumbo style and are permanently attached to the tam, however the bullion tassel is made out of a metallic thread, rather than the normal rayon tassel thread.
Both the PhD tams and the doctoraltam are available in choice of 4 sided, 6 sided or 8 sided models. Both PhD and doctoral tams are available in different sizes, to fit a large range of head sizes. Therefore when ordering, the customer should let us know their hat size or head size, to be sure hat fits properly.
The doctoraltam can also be made in other velvet colors, such as scarlet, red, purple, etc., however black velvet and PhD blue velvet are the most popular.
