*[[Cap]] - the medieval birettum, often called catercap (short for "Canterbury cap"), descended from the ancient pileus headcovering. Formed of four joined sections of material, generally square in shape, but soft and foldable. This is not authorized for usage in the Antiochian [[Western Rite Vicariate]], but is used by the [[Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia|ROCOR]] Western Rite.
*[[Cassock]] - a long sleeved garment worn beneath vestments and/or over street clothes by men, both clergy and laity. The two most common styles are Roman/Latin with buttons up the front, and the Sarum or English which is double breasted.
*[[Cowl]] - the monastic overgarment; a flowing wide-sleeved garment with a hood.
*[[Hood]] - originally a short cape with a hood, worn by those who have taken a degree as part of choir dress (for public prayers of the Hours) in English use.
*[[Tippet]] - a long scarf worn at choir office over hood and surplice, a component part of the hood. Those worn by a priest will be black and generally very wide. A special form worn by readers is thin and of a blue material. This is not authorized for usage in the Antiochian [[Western Rite Vicariate]], but is used by the [[Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia|ROCOR]] Western Rite.
*[[Tunic]] - a long sleeved garment similar to the cassock which forms the basis of the Western monastic habit. Worn with a belt.
*[[Surplice]] - loose over-garment of white linen, now usually gathered at the neck, with wide sleeves. It is the northern equivalent of the Gallican [[alb]] from which it descended. Counter-Reformation Roman style will be generally shorter, may be all lace or hemmed with wide bands of lace. The medieval style (also called Old English, Anglican, [[Rule of St. Benedict|Benedictine]], or cathedral style) is without lace, much longer with very wide (pointed or rounded) sleeves. Some Roman styles have a square yoke or close-fitting sleeves. Some older styles were worn with belt or cincture as on the alb.
