The Riassa is the outer garment with wide sleeves and long, lower cuffs. Riassas
also have two basic styles. The first exactly corresponds
to the first style of cassocks - Russian style (see cassocks),
and distinguishes itself only with the style of the sleeves
- long and broadening downwards. The second form of the riassa
is straight-lined, widening from the base to the ends. This
style of the riassa is known as the Greek style. Riassas are
primarily black, but can be dark-blue, brown, white, cream-colored,
and gray. Materials used for riassas are basically the same
used for cassocks. Cassocks and riassas can also be lined.
Riassas also exist for every day, acting as a fall or winter
coats. These riassas of first (Russian) style, with its turn-down
collar can be trimmed with black velvet or fur (see picture
above). Winter riassa-coat can be made with a warm lining.
