First step is to get the ordination, then you can get the robes.

Wearing the robes and passing as a monk without the proper ordination is a serious offence in Buddhism.
In order to ensure my mind never comes under the power of the self-cherishing attitude,
I must obtain control over my own mind.
Therefore, amongst all empowerments, the empowerment that gives me control over my mind is the best,
and I have received the most profound empowerment with this teaching.

Monastic robes really are intended for monastics though. That is why they can't dress however they want too, there is a big reason. I saw your other posts as well, and it seems you have a strong desire to be a monk, without actually taking any of the vows or doing the things monks do. I'm not trying to call you out, but point out to you that you don't need to be a monk (or pretend to be for that matter) in order to practice Buddhism and become enlightened. Dressing like something will not make you that thing. You said in your other (now locked) thread that you want to become a monk, but definitely want to have a girlfriend (and that you need one to reach enlightenment), and you're not sure whether you want to practice Buddhism or Hinduism. Being a monk means you are celibate. But you don't need to be a monk to reach enlightenment.
So start with what you know you want. Go ahead and get a girlfriend if you'd like. Then, start exploring what tradition speaks to you. Maybe read some books about Buddhism and Hinduism and see what you can learn. And if at some point in the future you decide you no longer want a girlfriend and want to actually be a monk, you can go do that too.

i have a shawl that i can wrap like a robe, or use it just to cover and warm my legs in meditation. i think you can get shawls from many stores in any city or country. and of course you can look for a red one.

You need not fear the demon hosts around you.
It is most important to tame your mind within....

In so far as the Ultimate, or the true nature of being is concerned,
there are neither buddhas or demons.

will realize the insubstantial and groundless nature of confusion.
Samsara will then appear as the mahamudra itself….

If you're interested in a robe based on outward appearances it will be an obstacle and you won't make any progress. Wearing a robe when your not ordained is an offence in Buddhism so if you want to be a monk its best not to wear a robe.

The clothes don't make a person. Mind makes a person.

Personally, I like Robes Я Us.

To whoever is the mod of this board. It looks to my observant eyes that yunghung is a sockpuppet for tiger, the youth who wants to become a monk.

Thai robes are just big sheets of fabric often. They can be really difficult to put on though, you will need a monk to tell you how.
Use white or grey sheets and take temporary 8 precepts when wearing them and there is no offense I can think of.
If there is a radical inconsistency between your statements and the position you claim to hold,
you are a sock puppet.
Make as many accounts as you want; people can identify your deception with this test.

They are not big sheets of fabric.

They are many strips of fabric sewn in a rather intricate way. Even the number of patches is very specific.

The robes you want are high school graduation robes. Stop wasting so much time on this board, and do your homework.
