Raniero Mancinelli shows a cardinal's skull cap in his tailor shop in Rome, Thursday Feb. 13, 2014. No glitzy gold, no rich velvet, no regal fur but rather sensible black shoes and a white cassock so flimsy you can see his black trousers through it. Pope Francis has pared down the papal wardrobe to fit his call for simplicity and humility among his clergy. The pope's personal style _ which earned him Esquire magazine's "Best Dressed Man of 2013" award _ and his broader message of sobriety will be put to the test Saturday when he inducts 19 prelates into the College of Cardinals, placing the three-cornered red silk biretta on the heads of the new "princes of the church."
