Pileolus worn by Dommesner Hans Gscheider

On the front page the of the Passauer Bistumsblatt (issue no. 47 of 20th of November 2011) I saw the above picture.
It shows the Dommesner (sacristan of the cathedral) Hans Gscheider wearing a black (brown ?) pileolus.
I tried, but I could not figure out by whose authorisation he is entitled to wear a pileolus.

Bukharan Kippah with tiny round mirrors

"White velvet Bukharan Kippah was custom designed for a Rabbi to wear for Yom Kippur 5770. Because Pomegranates/Rimonim are so plentiful in Israel during the High Holy days, a large pomegranate was embossed on the top, with seed pearls added by hand. The sides have tiny pomegranates and tiny Magen Davids with seed pearls. A Beautiful new tradition for the Rabbi's congregation in Hertsfordshire, Great Britain. This kippah was a winning entry in the Juried Jewish Ceremonial Arts Show 2, October, 2009, at Or Shalom Synagogue in London, Ontario. The judges appreciated its simple elegance."
