Shepherd and Woodward are proud to have been supplying the University of Oxford students with their sub fusc for over 150 years.
A scholar’s gown is worn by an undergraduate who has been awarded a scholarship by an Oxford college, typically a Choral or Organ Scholarship.
Many undergraduate students who achieve firsts at the end of their first or second year of studies (or third year in some cases), become exhibitioners who are also entitled to wear this gown.
The scholar’s gown is made from fine soft spun black cotton material in full style with a gathered stiffened yoke behind and short open sleeves.
The gown should reach to the wearer’s knees.
