I've been searching through the internet and have found images of Syriac Orthodox priests wearing the kamilavkion.
Here they are: ...
and last but certainly not least, photos of the current Syriac Patriarch himself wearing one when he was a young man: syrianchurch.org/pzakka/PhotoGallery2.htm
So, is the kamilavkion part of Syriac attire since even the Syriac Orthodox use it as well?
I won't comment on any of the particular photos except to say that those of Mar Zakka in the last link are quite old, and it's likely that he was not a bishop at that time.
In any case, I think the operative word here is "priest" whereas the topic of this thread is "bishops." I'm not an expert on SOC fashion, but to my knowledge, non-monastic SOC priests do not have specific headwear for non-liturgical use. Nor, to my knowledge, do SCC priests. (The Maronite secular clergy most definitely do, but that's irrelevant to this post.) If mu assumption is correct, it would follow that, if a SOC priest adopted the Greek kamilavkion (or, for that matter, the Roman biretta), it would be more of a personal thing. If it's not correct, I'd appreciate a link to something official explaining the otherwise.
