  1. Wow that's quite a collection - didn't see your picture though John :-)

  2. Warning - it could make you go blind.

    Ah, I can't cope with this.

    A bit surplice, you miter guessed.

  3. Seriously, I have in my time worn some quite good vestments. Am I wrong to suppose that the traditional vestment does not work with the modern conception of art?

    That could be a whole discussion in itself!

  4. Very Funny but couldn't tell the difference between the Clowns and the Clerics!

    A Baptist friend of mine wondered allowed that Mitres reminded him of a Phallic Symbol and that there wearers too often looked like one.

  5. No collection of bad vestments is complete without Ketherine Jefferts-Schorri's infamous oven-mitt mitre.

  6. For the edification of the readers of The Ugley Vicar I have posted a pictures of the Presiding Bishop in her rainbow robes and oven-mitt mitre with two articles on women bishops on my web log Anglicans Ablaze at I have also posted a picture of the Presiding Bishop in a pants suit with my own article, "How Are They to Believe," which examines how the Anglican Church in North America, in not giving a central place to the Thirty-Nine Articles in its teaching and life, is also not giving a central place to the gospel of divine grace.

  7. They are fakes of Tag Heuer .The looks, build and weight of Tag Heuer Watches are just like the originals and even fool the experts. Wearing Replica Tag Heuer will cause others to look at you enviously and you will be the talk of the party. After all it is not everyday that one spots people wearing Replica Tag Heuer Watches to a party.
