Legend has it that Excalibur was the name of the sword used by King Arthur, which was formed in the shape of a cross. We've designed the sleeves of the name-sake robe with crosses, to remind us of another, greater cross. Yoke, cuffs and front panels complete the color contrast. Velcro closed cuffs appeal to active choirs and instrumentalists alike.
Director & 711 Overlay
Directors prefer sleeves that stay put, even while their arms are flying. That's why this style is so popular. The adjustable Velcro closed cuffs fasten securely at the wrist, and are just as snug or as loose as you want them. Beneath the "maxi cut" 711 Overlay hides a comfortable V-neckline for comfort.
