The bachelor's gown, of poplin or a similar cloth, has long, pointed sleeves; the master's gown, also of poplin, has long, closed sleeves with square ends and a slit at the elbow for the arm to come through; the doctor's gown has full, round, open sleeves, is faced with velvet, and has three velvet stripes on the sleeves.
