Did the picture not want to post?

It was reluctant, but I gave it much encouragement and it complied eventually. "Entreat, exhort, rebuke."

Can anyone explain why Fr. Bondi is dressed as a Russian priest and not as a western priest, as are Frs. Fenton and Hughes? Is this what is expected of "western" rite priests of the Russian Church to still look as Russian as possible?
