Antique French 1930's Priest Amice (Amict).
The name is coming from Latin language "amicire" meaning "covering".
Rectangle fine linen with long attache fastened around the shoulders of the priest before wearing the Alb. Before the liturgical reforms of 1969, its use was mandatory for all Roman Catholic Masses, but it is only required today if the Alb does not cover the priest's ordinary clothing. While donning the amice, the priest first drapes the amice over his head (as with a hood), then lowers it to his neck, tying it around his torso. During this action he kisses the Crucfix and makes a short prayer asking God to clothe him with the helmet of salvation.
"Impone, Domine, capiti meo galeam salutis ad expugnandos diabolicos incursus"
It reminds us of the ancient Roman Clothing covering the whole body from head to feet named "Amictus"
(wikipedia extract)
