Plain work robes are a basic variety of robes. They provide greater defence, agility, magical strength, and magical defence than standard Muggle clothing.[1] Three sets of black plain work robes are required for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry students, as they make up the main constituent of the Hogwarts uniform.

They are sold by Madam Malkin's Robes for All Occasions[2] for eighty Sickles.[1] The player cannot sell this product, because it must be bought as part of the storyline.

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.
