Has anyone else noticed that many Catholic clergymen, specifically cardinals used to wear black Geneva Bands? Why did they wear them and why did they go out of, per se, style? Why were they replaced by the roman collar anyways? With all honesty, I think the Geneva Band looks a bit more traditional.
If anyone does not know what a Geneva Band is, look up “Blessed William Joseph Chaminade”, and the black collar that is around his neck is what I speak of. They may also be called by different names, such as Geneva Tabs.
