The Alb is typically a plain white linen tunic with close fitting long sleeves that stops at the ankle and tied at the waist with a cincture.
Altar Server and Deacon albs are most common in the church. The Latin word "Tunic Alba" is the originating word for these white tunics also known as "Sticharion" in orthodox churches.These liturgical vestments are used mainly by Roman Catholic, Anglican, and Protestant christian Churches.
