I think this is definitely the nicest Papal-Pallium-Compatible chasubles yet produced. Ornate, but not in a way the competes with the new pallium style. Nice.
Update -- Matthew points out the Holy Father's wearing a "pontifical dalmatic": Look, first shirt sleeve; cassock sleeve; alb sleeve, and then the gold-trimmed white sleeve at the bottom. Looking at the pictures of Benedict's installation Mass, I think he was wearing one then, too, but we just didn't notice.
