Graduation Gowns - A Pleasant Surprise
I am just about to graduate from University and am ordering my graduation gown from the prestigious Ede and Ravenscroft. Naturally, when ordering something from a company which has been making ceremonial dress and fine suits for well over 300 years, you just have to bite the bullet and accept that you will have to quite your height, chest size and head circumference in feet and inches. Upon landing on the 'measurements' page, greeted by a drop box which allowed me to change units between metric and imperial. To add to this surprise, the default units were, in fact metric. A small bit of progress it may be, but as they say 'Every little helps'.
