Not sure of the quality of this robe as it is a costumebase. Also, some of the "one size fits most" robes I have seen end up being way too short and don't look quite rite. If you could email them and maybe get a length measurement from the shoulders to the bottom of the robe that might help determine if this would be too short on you. A little more expensive, but definitely worth it in terms of quality are the robes from twin roses designs http://twinrosesdesigns.com/Coats%20and%20Robes%20for%20Sale.html#Jedi_Style_Robes. They have a couple different fabrics to choose from on their robes and will custom tailor it to your measurements. I got the wool melton robe since that is the fabric they used in the films for the robes. Hot as heck in the summer, but worth it for the way it looks and moves while wearing it! Good luck in your search! Ben

I would go with what Dylan said. I have a Museum Replica robe for my Jedi costume. It's 100% wool so it is quite warm in the cooler months, for the warmer months I don't wear it.

I found one on ebay, it's a bit pricey but here is the link.

Good luck Master Hartss!! Ben
