Yes, hooray for cassocks, or when they're not practical, the regulations of the Archdiocese of New York under Cardinal Spellman (1930s-1960s), based on the Third Plenary Council of Baltimore in 1884: cassock and biretta on church grounds; black suit, Roman collar and black fedora as street clothes.
