I ordered a custom made Russian cassock and vest made from Italian wool. The craftsmenship was of the highest quality. I was so pleased that I ordered a custom made winter vest in Italian wool to compliment my set. I also order two other Russian cassocks standard-size (1 gray and 1 black) in shirt cotton for easy wash and wear as well as two gray vest (summer-winter) and two black vests (summer-wineter) also in cotton.

Dear Dimas and the staff of Istok, I would like to thank you for your absolutely wonderful work on my vestment. It is exactly how I hoped it would be. Every instruction was followed with my vestment and it turned out absolutely beautiful. I wanted to especially thank Dimas for his patience, kindness, and direct oversight of my order, I know I can be a pain the neck because I want everything perfect, but the vestment absolutely is 100% perfect and to my liking.
