The dalmatic is a long wide-sleeved tunic, which serves as a formal vestment in the Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Anglican, and United Methodist temples, which is here and there worn by an elder at Mass or different administrations. Albeit rare, it might likewise be worn by diocesans over the alb and beneath the chasuble. Like the chasuble worn by ministers and priests, it is an external vestment and should coordinate the formal shade of the day. 

In Roman Catholic church the dalmatics is a robe with wide sleeves; it compasses to at any rate the knees or lower. In eighteenth century vestment style, it is standard to opening the under side of the sleeves so that the dalmatics turns into a mantle like a scapular with an opening for the head and two square bits of the material tumbling from the shoulder over the upper arm. Present day dalmatics have a tendency to be longer and have shut sleeves, with the sides being open beneath the sleeve. The particular ornamentation of the vestment comprises of two vertical stripes running from the shoulder to the sew; as indicated by Roman use these stripes are thin and here and there joined at the base by two tight cross-stripes. Outside of Rome the vertical stripes are very expansive and the cross-piece is on the upper part of the article of clothing. At a Pontifical High Mass, a dalmatic (normally made of lighter material) is worn by the priest under the chasuble. At grave ecclesiastical ritualistic events the Pope is helped by two cardinal-elders vested in and wearing a mitra simplex (straightforward white miter). 

In the Roman Catholic Church the subdeacons wore a vestment called the tunicle which was initially unmistakable from a dalmatics yet by the seventeenth century the two had gotten to be indistinguishable, however a tunicle was frequently less ornamented than it, the primary distinction regularly being one and only level stripe versus the two turning into a minister's vestment. Furthermore, not at all like elders, subdeacons don't wear a stole under their tunicle. Today, the tunicle is uncommon in the Roman Catholic Church as just certain approved administrative social orders, (for example, the Priestly Fraternity of St. Diminish) have subdeacons. 

Customarily it was not utilized as a part of the Roman ceremony by elders amid Lent. In its place, contingent upon the point in the ritual, was worn either a collapsed chasuble or what was known as a wide stole, which spoke to a moved up chasuble. This custom backtracked to a period at which it was still viewed as a crucial mainstream article of clothing and in this way not fitting to be worn amid the penitential period of Lent.
