How to Determine the Correct Stole Length

Pastors and priests come in all sizes from petite to very tall, with many variations in between. Our standard 4 1/2-inch wide clergy stole style is 53 inches long before adding any tassels or trims. The 53 inches is measured from the Center Back neckline to the bottom edge of the stole. The stole length is perfect fit for people who are approximately 5’6″ to 5’11” tall. The 51-inch clergy stole is designed for people who are 5’5″ tall or shorter. The 55-inch stole works well for people who are 6′ tall and over. There are many different stole styles, and the finished length of the stole will also vary based on the selected stole style.
