The outermost garment of subdeacons.
A circular cape reaching to the ankle, used by bishops, priests and deacons.
Similar to a surplice but with narrower sleeves. It is usually highly decorated with lace. Its use is reserved to bishops and certain canons.
Skull cap, similar to the Jewish yarmulke.
Worn by Bishops and some abbots. Despite the having the same name, this does not really correspond with the Eastern mitre (see below), which has a distinct history and which was adopted much later.
Pectoral cross 
The cross or crucifix worn by bishops. It is held by a chain (or cord in choir dress) around the neck and rests on the chest.
