Pope will impose pallium on new archbishops

According to today's VIS, Benedict will impose the pallium on new metropolitan archbishops at a Mass on Thursday, June 29, which is the feast of Sts. Peter and Paul.

Now this is what I want to know: Will he distribute pallia like the one he himself has worn since his elevation, i.e., the over-the-shoulder style, rather than the "current" round-the-neck cut? I like "his" choice much better and would love to see it become the new standard . . .

A bit about the pallium from the 1917 Catholic Encyclopedia.
