Can a cassock be blessed?

(Apologies if I put this under the wrong category)

I just bought a new cassock for myself (which I wear when I altar serve) and I’m just wondering if a priest is able to bless it? I don’t know if blessing vestments is a thing.

The cassock isn’t a vestment, properly speaking, it’s clerical attire, street clothes.

But it and the sacred vestments can be blessed, and the Roman Ritual includes blessings for them.



Thank you Father. Apologies for the my misuse of the word ‘vestments’. I shall talk my priest this Sunday.
