The kalimafi & veil combination worn by Byzantine bishops and monastics is not a klobuk, which is the permanently combined version. —Dcn. Andrew talk random contribs 20:15, July 23, 2006 (CDT)

No, this is not correct. Only the Russians (and by the extension the Ukrainians and the OCA), and not all of them at that, use these klobuks which are permanently attached. In the Slavic Balkans, all klobuks have the epikamilavkion merely tied around the kamilavka, and they're called "klobuk" all the same. As is so often case, "Great Russian usage" is hardly coextensive with "Slavic usage." --Julio 13:54, July 27, 2006 (CDT)
