Their vestments are called cassocks. The inner cassock is simply called a "Cassock". The outer cassock is called a "ryasa (russian) or "exorason". A "skufia" is a soft sided cap. A "kamilavka is a stiff hat. An "epanokamelavkion" is a veil extending over the back, worn with the kamilavka by all monastics and bishops. A "klobuk" is a kamilavka with an epanokamelavkion permanently attached; more common in the Russian tradition. (I just came up with that off the top of my head.)

Well all I know is that when he goes somewhere he brings his staff with him, he a busy fellow, and his head wear is called a Miter because it has a sharp angle on top.  I also know he has money because a lot of it is in vestments. If he is traveling to the Holy land he also wears a purple Yarmulke.

I thought that Bishops wore long black gowns with a red sort of like a scarf size thing AROUND THEIR NECKS. NOT SURE ON THAT ONE THOUGH. OR IT COULD BE WHITE WHAT THEY WEAR ROUND THE NECK, NUT NOT A COLLAR LIKE WHAT VICORS WEAR.
