So I might get me a new robe from the Amazon seller Largemouth, their sleeves and hoods are more larger than say a Jedi Robe America robe but had a quick question on theirs, is velcro allowed on the robe? Its for a closure so thought I'd ask first before anything. Fabric is kinda thin but not too too cheaply thin but not as thick as a JRA robe either though. I just like their construction better. So thanks for the info on that. I have a black robe I can post in about 2 weeks with to give some ideas if it'll help. Were in the process of moving at the moment and its all messy right now so. Only other thing is they only have one shade of brown like Obi-wan's robe shade so

at that price-point you're better off with a rubies supreme jedi robe.

(he is 5'8" and I had to remove about 4 inches from the bottom of the robe -- it will fit anyone up to about 6'0" I guess).

the fabric is a heavy weight polyester VERY similar to real wool.
the drape and flow are very convincing.
this is one of the few/(only?) SW products from Rubies which is actually accepted in the RL with no modifications.
for what it's worth? I would buy this again.

Hmm. Didn't even know that actually. I was always staying away from those too Razz I think that's what their robes are made out of too. Yup, 100% polyester but not as thick as the Rubies one though
