Christians continuing with fringed garments

In Christian liturgy, the stole and other vestments worn by priests and bishops traditionally have fringes on the edge, in remembrance of the Old Testament prescriptions.

My two cents

I love these types of remembrances.

I guess priests wearing robes doesn’t happen with the newer denominations (what with pastors wearing business suits or more casual attire), but fringed garments make for a cool staple of the old school denominations.
