This is a fun thread!  Not sure about my favorite... Must think!  The traditional Dominican black and white is very striking, but wearing white is scary.

I'd think that doorways would be problematic...

For overall aesthetic, The Franciscans of The Immaculate. Hands down.

Favourite habit? Why, Carmelite, of course:
