First year Shopping List for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry[src]
Plain work robes are the main constituent of the Hogwarts uniform. Three sets of plain work robes are required for Hogwarts students.[1] In the early 1900s, these robes were blue,[2] however in later years, these robes changed to black.[3]

Plain work robes were sold at Madam Malkin's Robes for All Occasions, at four Galleons and twelve Sickles each in 1991.[4]

Behind the scenes

  • Despite the books indicating that plain black robes are what make up the Hogwarts uniform, the film adaptations since Prisoner of Azkaban have featured robes with coloured trim based on which house the wearer was sorted into.
