I bring this up because, in my opinion, among the liturgical traditions, Episcopalians are the worse offenders when it comes to poor taste in vestments. By far the absolute worst. And it seems to be a fad that is not passing quietly into the oblivion in which it belongs.
Am I being extreme? Perhaps. But consider this site, Bad Vestments, which is run by a young man, whom I understand was a former Episcopalian.
Here's an example of what I'm talking about:
Now, can anyone tell me what part of the liturgical year YELLOW represents? I must tell you, this kind of thing is not "cool." It is not "emergent." It is just plain embarrassing.
BTW, to those who should know better, blue is an alternative color for Advent. Purple is appropriate for Lent. Using those colors during other seasonal times is simply reason to question the quality of a person's liturgical training.
I will now stop gritting my teeth.
