Simar(re) is a robe for men, derived from chimer or chimere, and ecclesiastical garment very much like it in shape worn during the Renaissance. The neck part was somewhat on a double breasted line, with no collar in back, but with wide revers turned back from the front edge of the robe. The robe was worn either ungirded or confined at the waist by a narrow silk scarf, knotted with one loop and two ends.

In certain cases, all editors are allowed to submit modifications, but review is required for some editors, depending on certain conditions.
