UPDATE: 28 May:
Many of the people I have been talking to like the bronze, but the silver – so to speak – came in second.
I took the fabric and swatches into the chapel and turned on the lights. Then I positioned them about a bit.
The bronze looks great up close, but it is harder to discern from a distance. What really popped out was the silver.

The ecclesiastical tailor in Rome, Gammarelli, informed me that the White vestments for Pontifical Mass at the Throne (PMATT) has been shipped. We have a PMATT coming on the Feast of the Queenship of Mary (31 May) in the evening here in Madison. The Extraordinary Ordinary will pontificate.
I am eager to see the vestments. They have the diocesan coat of arms embroidered on the back. The chasuble has the bishop’s arms. When seen all together I believe they will make a favorable impression. Eventually, additional dalmatics and chasubles will be added to the set. Thanks to everyone who contributed to the Tridentine Mass Society of the Diocese of Madison (a 501(c)(3) organization) to make the vestments possible.
Our new campaign to help with the Blue and also to order “folded chasubles” for the Violet set.
It is time to think about blue.
I am wondering about trim.
I’ve pretty much decided that the trim will be one of these three… silver, gold or bronze.
Barring some new discovery, the trim will be one of these. Gammarelli has the silver and the gold. The bronze I acquired elsewhere. I would have to get it separately and send – better, take it! – it to Rome.
Here is a poll. Please note: I will take the results into consideration, but I will not merely take the results of the poll as my final choice.
The combox is open for those who are registered and approved.
