*[[Cassock|Anteri]]/Podrjaznik: Inner cassock, but does not have buttons down the front like the Roman cassock []
*[[Cassock|Exorason]]/RyasaRyassa/Jibbee: Outer cassock; a large, flowing garment []
*[[Pectoral cross]]: In much of Slavic Orthodoxy, the pectoral cross is the sign of a priest; a plain silvertone (usually pewter) cross is common to most priests, especially of the Russian tradition. These crosses are traditionally inscribed with the words from 1st Timothy 4:12: "Be thou an example to the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity." The gold and jeweled pectoral crosses are given as awards to clergy; the highest award that can be given to a priest is a second pectoral cross (i.e., the priest may wear two pectoral crosses). In Greek practice, the pectoral cross is awarded only when a priest is elevated to the rank of [[archpriest|Oikonomos]], and there is no distinction made between various levels of crosses.

The medieval style (also called Old English, Anglican, [[Rule of St. Benedict|Benedictine]], or cathedral style) is without lace, much longer with very wide (pointed or rounded) sleeves.
