*In the films, students wear normal Muggle clothing on their free time or outside of their lessons. This appears to be true in the books as well. [[Ron Weasley]] and his siblings typically receive sweaters from [[Molly Weasley|Mrs. Weasley]] as Christmas presents, despite still having six more months of school left. In the sixth book, [[Draco Malfoy]] shops for new robes even though the school year is about to begin.
  +
*Also in the movies (and the American illustrations of the books), the uniforms have colours distinguishing between houses, and have clothing underneath, changing over the years. For example, in the early twentieth century, there was a white buttoned shirt, house tie, grey v-neck jumper, trousers or breeches (for males) and gymslip with skirt (for females). According to the films, by the time Harry got to school, a blazer was no longer required.
   
The uniform design for [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]] has changed over a long period of time. The house colours that are designed into the uniform never vary, [[Gryffindor]]'s colours being scarlet and gold; [[Slytherin]]'s colours being green and silver; [[Hufflepuff]]'s colours being yellow and black, and [[Ravenclaw]]'s colours being blue and bronze (blue and silver in the film adaptations).

*[[Beauxbatons uniform]]
*In all of the books' cover art and chapter art (U.S. editions), the Hogwarts uniforms generally show the students' regular clothing worn underneath a plain black robe. This is supported in the U.S. Edition [[Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix|Order of the Phoenix]] when on the train, Harry and Ginny change into their school robes together. This is not always the case however. Later in the book during a flashback to the Marauder era it is revealed that Severus Snape wore only his underwear beneath his robe.

*Lochaven International Ltd. are the suppliers of the Hogwarts knitwear and have been working with [[Warner Bros.]] on the films since ''[[Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (film)|Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban]]''. It was confirmed that an order of new jumpers and cardigans was purchased for the film adaptations of ''[[Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (film)|Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows]]''.
 
*The vocabulary used to describe the school uniform - and attire in general - is one area where the differences between United Kingdom and United States English can cause significant confusion. A "jumper" in the UK is called a "sweater" in the US. In the US, a "jumper" refers to a dress generally worn by young girls, called a "pinafore dress" or "gymslip" in the UK.

Owners

Hogwarts students

The Hogwarts uniform is the clothing that students attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry are required to wear; the uniform must be worn during all of their lessons, whilst having meals in the Great Hall and studying in their spare time in the Study Hall, Common Room or Library. The uniform is washed in the laundry, which is located somewhere in Hogwarts Castle and presumably operated by house-elves.

UniformEdit

The uniform consists of a plain black work robe and a black pointed hat. The hat is rarely worn. There are no marks, colours or crests determining between houses; students wear their own socks and shoes and do not wear any clothing beneath their robes except their underwear. During the cold seasons, an additional winter cloak with silver fastenings and name tags is required to be worn.

Behind the scenesEdit

Harry&#039;s Tie

Gryffindor tie.

  • In the films, students wear normal Muggle clothing on their free time or outside of their lessons. This appears to be true in the books as well. Ron Weasley and his siblings typically receive sweaters from Mrs. Weasley as Christmas presents, despite still having six more months of school left. In the sixth book, Draco Malfoy shops for new robes even though the school year is about to begin.
  • Also in the movies (and the American illustrations of the books), the uniforms have colours distinguishing between houses, and have clothing underneath, changing over the years. For example, in the early twentieth century, there was a white buttoned shirt, house tie, grey v-neck jumper, trousers or breeches (for males) and gymslip with skirt (for females). According to the films, by the time Harry got to school, a blazer was no longer required.

Uniform design in the film adaptationsEdit

The uniform design changed in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, due to the change of over a long period of time. The house colours that are designed into the uniform never vary, Gryffindor's colours being scarlet and gold; Slytherin's colours being green and silver; Hufflepuff's colours being yellow and black, and Ravenclaw's colours being blue and bronze (blue and silver in the film adaptations).

Uniform design, 1938–1945Edit

In the late 1930s and early 1940s, the Hogwarts uniform consisted of a plain white buttoned shirt, a house tie (red, green, yellow or blue according to House), a thick grey knitted v-neck jumper (with a black neckline), grey trousers or breeches (for males) or gymslip with pleated skirt (for females), plain black shoes, an additional grey pocketed blazer (for males) or with an emblem varying according to which House the student was in and an open grey buttoned robe with the school crest on the chest. In the second and sixth films, Tom Riddle, Rubeus Hagrid and Myrtle are seen wearing this uniform.

During the 1970s, the Hogwarts uniform was relatively similar to Tom Riddle's era. The Hogwarts uniform consisted of a plain white buttoned shirt, a house tie (thin stripes) (red and gold, green and silver, yellow and black or blue and bronze, according to House) a thick grey knitted v-neck jumper (with a house coloured neckline), grey trousers (for males) or pleated skirt (for females), plain black shoes and an open black tied robe with the student's house emblem. Males also wore grey blazers under their robes and over their jumpers (there is no citation that females also had this included in their required uniform). Students seen wearing these uniforms are, Sirius Black, James Potter, Remus Lupin, Peter Pettigrew, Severus Snape and Lily Evans, all of them in the fifth film adaptation.

Uniform design, 1991–1993Edit

During the early 1990s the Hogwarts uniform was changed quite a bit since the 1970s. The uniform no longer had a blazer and it now consisted of a plain white buttoned shirt, a house tie (thick stripes) (red and gold, green and silver, yellow and black or blue and bronze, according to House), a grey knitted v-neck jumper (with a house-coloured neckline), grey trousers (for males) or pleated skirt (for females), plain black shoes, grey socks, and an open black buttoned robe with the student's house emblem on. Hogwarts students are seen wearing this uniform in the first two film adaptations. This uniform design was used until the third film.

In the third film, the uniform would undergo a re-design again. This time the uniform consisted of a plain white buttoned shirt, a house tie (thin stripes) (red and gold, green and silver, yellow and black or blue and bronze, according to House), a charcoal grey knitted v-neck jumper, a cardigan or a sleeveless jumper (with cuffs and waist House-coloured), for boys, charcoal grey trousers were worn and for girls, a skirt (around knee-length). Girls also had to wear black tights or stockings. Charcoal grey socks were worn by boys.
