Zen Buddhists often wear robes when meditating. Since these robes are used both by lay and monastics, there's no problem with wearing them. Here's a link to the Zen Mountain Monastery Store page that sells them. You can probably find others for sale usinfg a search engine.

It's not any offense to wear these lay robes. http://zabuzabu.net/

Although, most lay practice robes are usually pretty expensive as they are all handmade. $150-$200 is a normal price. As for finding them in a store and not online, I've never seen any kind of store that carries them. They are usually custom made to your own sizes.

I think you're asking the wrong people as we are not in the market for monks robes either online or in a physical store.

If I guess correctly from your online name -- Yung Hung -- and you are involved in a Chinese Buddhist tradition, then the robes to get are a "haiqing" (海青) and "manyi" (縵衣). The haiqing is the same large black robe as what the monastics wear, though it isn't "monastic robes" per se. The brown outer manyi looks like a monastic "jiasha" (袈裟), but is different because it is made from one piece of material. However, one only gets the manyi after one takes the five precepts. So, study and take the precepts and get these robes from the temple or monastery where you take them. Any Chinese tradition temple will sort all this out for you.

Haiqing & Manyi:

Please don't wear monastic robes if you're not a monastic. It doesn't help anyone, including yourself. Thanks.

Oh leave him/her alone.. ;)
Its common for many people discovering Dharma to have a period of being infatuated by The Mystic East..When my friends and I were getting involved with ' Buddhism ' in the 60's at least one of them insisted on eating with chopsticks.. :smile: They were somehow more Buddhist.. :smile:
He would sit there eating sausage and chips with chopsticks...( Vegetarianism having not yet raised its head in Brit Buddhist circles to any degree..in fact for my generation of Brit Buddhists it still hasn't to any great degree. )
Eventually of course one realises that its not about aping other cultures, or lunch.
But its fun to explore.

You might have to go to a specialist store, probably in your local Chinatown would be the best bet.

A store that specialises in Traditional Asian clothing. You'd be very hard pressed to find one in your local Walmart. They are not everyday clothing, even for Japanese. You could always buy a bath robe. It would be a lot cheaper and they look like kimonos.
