We should have the homilist for the day don preaching tabs as well, as that would help people to know who will be speaking that day.

IS that Tim Curry, and if it is, what movie is it?

Outer Cassocks actually look like Manchurian or Mongolian clothing to me. Any chance of eastern influence?

The exorason is, in fact, a Turkish judge's robe.

Aren't there canons stating what clerics should be wearing?

Maybe. But note that in the United States, Antiochian clergy are specifically asked not to wear cassocks outside church.

No ecumenical canons. I am sure there is some local council of Pennslaviarusorchrid that gives very specif instructions, but there is nothing universal.

Just a couple of observations on the topic:

1.)  A commentor on an Orthodox blog once responded to the cassock vs. collar question.  He/she made the point that in many cases, converts to Orthodoxy are opposed to the collar, while many clergy from the Middle East are opposed to the cassock.  Why?  Because some (albeit not all) converts are coming from the "dreaded West" and wish to shed all vestiges of where they came from, while the Middle-Eastern clergy in this country sometimes view the long robes and beards as reminders of Islam, and thus feel more comfortable wearing the collar.

2.)  When it comes down to it, a priest needs to be obedient to his bishop regarding clergy dress.  If anyone else has an issue with what a priest is wearing, unless he is that priest's bishop, that person may want to consider that it is he, and not the priest, that has the real problem.

One Of Our serbian Priest At St.Sava Libertyville Illinois ..wore a wide Brim Black Hat like the Italian Clergy wear,Plus a Latin Cassock with white collar...I was younger then so i didn't voice my disapproval of it, though i didn't like it, i knew it wasn't a orthodox Look...

I recognized the Catholic look from watching tv, that showed Roman Catholic clergy wearing ,what he was wearing....

Curious Though ,if he still wears that getup considering the sexual scandals that's rocking in the catholic Church........ ;D

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

What?

He's implying that he wouldn't want to be mistaken for a pedophile these days, so he's probably reverted to traditional Orthodox priestly attire. Stashko doesn't like Roman Catholics, if you can believe it.
