Cardinal's Attire

On Saturday, November 20th, Pope Benedict XVI will officially name 24 new cardinals. They will be presented with their red hats at a ceremony in St. Peter's Basilica.
These new cardinals will have an opportunity to do some shopping while they are in Rome. I saw this window display near the Pantheon a couple days ago. It features items for a cardinal's wardrobe.

The store has everything from hats and rings for the new cardinals...

to Red Socks. (Note: The Boston baseball team is spelled Red Soxs.)

All I can think of is - what a great Beyond the Fringe sketch that would all make!!!!! A gang of soon-to-be cardinals trying on red frocks.
