Almost 100% of the vestments worn by today's clergy come from pagan and Catholic traditions... NOT the old testament priests. After all, all who are born-again are part of the royal priesthood (1 Peter 2:9). All truly born-again believers are ministers (2 Corinthians 5:17-19). The veil has been rent. Thus, there is no biblical need or requirement for ministers, who happen to speak publicly, to dress differently than anyone else. It's merely preference and/or institutional protocol. There is no requirement for and NO ANOINTING in a clergy collar, robe, tunic, chasuble or otherwise.
Let's not lie to or deceive God's people. If clerical attire is the preference... okay. Let's not make it more than it is. If we tell God's people that we are following the tradition of God's priests, then we will follow the very detailed instruction God gave for that priestly attire. Ephods, anyone? Reference Exodus 28, 39
People of God, BE FREE! Stop going into debt to dress up like a pope or KKK grand wizard. Save your money. You carry the anointing in your spirit, not on your back. Selah.
