Given information about academic regalia such as colour and style of graduation robes, how can I determine the university that used that regalia? I have the photo below, and would like to find out what university this graduation was for.

    Perhaps the question could be rephrased as "How can you find out which university used or uses a particular graduation robe, colours, etc.?" to which one possible answer might be "contact a company that provides academic robes for a particular country (or in the U.S., state), they may know." This information might be of interest to people doing genealogy or historical research. – mhwombat Jun 24 '18 at 16:16

    Jack, I reworded your question to make it more general. If that's not acceptable, you can change it back. I don't know if this will be sufficient to get it reopened. – mhwombat Jun 24 '18 at 16:24

    I would vote to reopen this question if it included a textual description of these academic regalia --- so there is at least a chance that someone ends up here with a Google search and finds it helpful. – Federico Poloni Jun 24 '18 at 20:06

    Okay. I guess I’ve been overruled. But i still think it sets a bad precedent. – aeismail Jun 24 '18 at 23:07
