Default Madam Malkin's Robes for All Occasions


Madam Malkin's the premiere location for quality robes. Although predominately known for providing Hogwarts students with uniforms, Malkin's also provides other robes to the Wizarding World for all functions -- formal and informal. Once in the doors you'll notice all of the racks around the shop, as well as heavy wooden furniture throughout for resting while looking for robes.

The space may look cluttered, but upon further inspection you'll notice that there is an order and flow making it easier to find the items you seek. In the back of the shop you will find dressing rooms to try on your latest find. Along the wall you will find Hogwarts apparel and accessories. Along the opposite wall are dress robes. In the middle sits a heavy wooden counter top, a glass bowl filled with candies sits beside a pad of paper where the shopkeeper will write up your total.

Can't find what you are looking for? Ask the shopkeeper and they'll be more than happy to help you find exactly what you're looking for. Still can't find what you’re looking for? Talk to the shopkeeper and they may be able to figure out how to do a customized order for you. Don't forget your socks.

Magdelas brought a finger to his chin as he studied the houndstooth pattern. The lad was mad to wear something that heavy in the summer, but that was part of it's edge. It had that certain air of rebellion Magdelas himself never managed to achieve. "Ok. I'll find you a good robe, and you help me with trousers. First - black is overrated. Try grey or burgundy - will match your hair better, I reckon."

As there was a rack of seasonal specials nearby, he headed there first. "Another thing my pa says is that you should buy your stuff from the same shop. That way things match better and y'don't got to think about it too hard." He pulled out a slightly fitted light grey robe with a heightened collar, which he suspected would look a bit too dramatic on himself, but rather cool on his new friend. He held it up. "Collars are more popular for guys right now. No-collar is kinda girly. Oh - are there girly trousers?"

It was a strange position to be in, wherein he had to question his style for the first time. He'd always known muggle-influenced dress was more popular, but it never occured to him to dabble himself. Of course, he was only 11 and only just coming into a sense of himself and how fashion could be linked with one's social success.

Years later, Elias would look back on this moment and realize the absurdity of two young boys who knew next to nothing about fashion trying to coach each other on fashion. For the time being, he accepted the grey robe and nodded sagely at Magdelas, "Yes, there are for sure. If you've picked up a pair of trousers without any pockets, you know for certain you're holding girly trousers and you ought to put them back straight away."

He moved to one of the racks and eyes the trousers on display; then he eyes Magdelas' legs, and back to the trousers, before selecting a pair: "These. You'll want a looser fit to start, I think, if you're not used to them. Have you not worn trousers ever?"

Fortunately for both of them, Elias had been in Diagon Alley for four hours at this point, and the shock of seeing grown men sweeping about in dresses robes had worn off. Looking at the grey robe Magdelas had picked out for him, he reasoned that he could easily get away with wearing black trousers on the bottom.

"I'm wearing some now, point of fact." He lifted the hem of his robes to about the knee, revealing a pair of what a more knowledgeable person might have identified as a pair of brais, assuming said person held an interest in 14th c. garments. In truth, such trousers - which is to say, ones designed to be seen strictly about the ankle area - had been growing steadily out of fashion for some time, save for among aging circles of purebloods and other stubbornly traditional individuals. Wearing them on their own was akin to wandering around in undergarments and looked rather unflattering to boot. Magdelas didn't care for them on principle of being made to wear them.

"You're probably going to be popular." The boy suddenly stated to Elias matter-of-factly. It wasn't from jealousy, so much as an observation he couldn't help but note. "I'm going to try too, but I've only ever been around old people, so I don't really know what to do. Not like 'my pa' old, I mean wizard old; the kind what makes you question how everything started."

'Ponderously old' might have been what he was looking for. Either way, the point was made. He didn't have tremendous life experience when it came to people his own age and was determined to fix that.

Elias actually squatted down to get a better look at the 'trousers' Magdelas had lifted his skirt robes to display. He supposed that poking them might be inappropriate, but he gave a considering "huh", followed closely by, "Do a lot of wizarding folk wear these, then?"

They looked a bit silly to him, but then he supposed that was why they were tucked out of sight.

He looked up at Magdelas at the popular comment, and stood up with a sheepish smile, "D'you think? I haven't the first clue how to be popular. You seem to have it all figured out, though."

"I know lots of background stuff that no one really cares 'bout anymore. I unno. But it's no big deal, 'cuz everything always works out in the end. I always check my cards beforehand, so I usually got a good idea of what's gonna happen." He looked over at Elias' suggestions and snagged a few that he felt best approximated his size. It would be weird to have his thighs and everything exposed, almost like wearing pajamas, but he'd manage. "Oh - do you read cards, or crystals or anything like that? I could read yours, if you want."

From the distance, he could vaguely hear his father mutter something about 'classic condition' and 'they even preserved the grass stains!' Possibly, he was checking out an old Quidditch uniform, or else mistook a bit of garbage as a display. Magdelas was beyond relieved to have someone else on this trip with him.

Ignoring the suddenly indignant muffling from his bag (something about how he didn't need any outside validation other than what the mirror itself could provide), Elias shook his head, "No, I've never. The whole 'being magic' thing sort of came as a shock."

That was a slight understatement. If Elias had shown any magical ability before his Hogwarts letter arrived, he couldn't recall it. Then his letter from Hogwarts had arrived; his father thought it was 'some sort of pen-pal thing' until his mother had seen it and screamed, at which point she'd found herself in the position of having quite a bit of explaining to do.

Elias pointed at the change rooms, "Want to try this stuff on? We should probably get some school stuff, too. The list said there was a first-year students' package..."

Magdelas suppressed a groan at the reminder that they had a whole list of things after this stop which still remained. The shops might have been open a bit later during this time of year, but that still only gave them a few hours now and with these kinds of crowds, it wouldn't be easy.

"Alright, yeah, we should get this checked off our list. Oh, but uh, I think the changerooms might be a bit weird for you." He tried to think if muggle clothing ever moved on its own accord, but he was pretty sure that even with electrical contrivances, they hadn't managed self-dressing technology yet. "Just let the clothes do what they do. It's faster than trying to put them on yourself."

He walked over to where his father stood, waffling between two equally garish ties. "Elias and I are gonna change, ok?"

"Hm? Ah, yes! Very good. I'll be..." He sighed, disturbed by his difficult decision. "I'll be here."

Ties were usually the undoing of his father (ironically) and the man had the preposterous collection to prove it. It was yet another obstacle which kept Mr. Maunder from sticking to the schedule, but Magdelas vowed to have them all out of the store in good time, even if that meant he had to buy both the ugly things.

"It what now?" Elias watched Magdelas walk off, then turned his eyes to the grey robe in his hands. With a quick look left and right to make sure no one was watching, he lifted the garment close to his face and muttered at it, "Don't you dare. I can dress myself, thanks much."

As he went about doing just that, he realized that he'd better get a book or two about the Wizarding World; Magdelas could be making up any number of things, and he wouldn't know in the slightest until someone else both told him otherwise and demonstrated that it was so.

Either the robes listened to him or Magdelas was puffing smoke, because they were quite lifeless and floppy throughout the changing process. When he emerged from the change room and looked in the full-length mirror, he couldn't help but feel quite wizardly, indeed.

Magdelas stumbled about in his changeroom, bewildered by the dormant clothing, which forced him to navigate the wretched things on his own. It wasn't an impossible task of course, but neither was it as easy as he would've liked. Perhaps it was because of all the muggle-types that came through here, or maybe it was because a place that specialized in school uniforms didn't much care to add the extra enchantment. The trousers worked as he expected, at least, and were less restrictive around the regions than he'd anticipated. It did take a few tries however before he found something that seemed appropriate.

The pants were tapered slightly and one would say 'well-fitted' width-wise, though the legs were a touch long. But Magdelas would refuse a hem - he'd grow into them by the end of the year, no doubt.

Once he'd stepped back into the store, he immediately spotted Elias performing a quick self-evaluation in the mirror.

"Looks rate to me. How d'you feel? Any different?" Because Magdelas was beginning to; more confident, somehow, as though the display of his legs alone was enough to declare a tiny victory over his stodgy upbringing.

"I feel wizardly." Bold statement from a kid without a wand or any real knowledge of spells. Elias swished his arms back and forth, watching the long sleeves ripple through the air. He sort of felt like a squire, to be honest; the robes had that tunic-y look, instead of being... well... a dress. He didn't think he'd ever get wizard-y enough for a dress.

He reluctantly stopped admiring himself in the mirror and turned to look at Magdelas instead, "How about you? Trousers fitting all right?" The boy looked as though he might want to give a kick or two of the left leg...

Victoria had been scrambling around the past few days trying to make sure enough Hogwarts items were floating around the store. Flicking her long brown hair out of her face she started setting more of the summer clothes on the racks that she had made early in the season. Turning to the other corner she placed a few sweaters and wool robes on the winter clearance shelf.

Turning she saw two youngsters floating around and talking about the types of clothes they should wear at Hogwarts. She chuckled under her breath hanging some more clothes up before walking closer. “Y’all finding everything okay? Need any help getting your Hogwarts things?” her bright smile crossed her face.

Leaving Magdelas to admire his (potential) new pants, Elias turned to the shopkeeper and lifted his arms, showing off the silvery tunic, "Could I wear this at Hogwarts?"

He'd seen the advert about the Hogwarts package, yes he had, but did they have to wear the same uniform? He quite liked the thought of everyone showing off their fancy clothes on a daily basis...

Victoria smiled at the young boy. She knew first hand just how horrible the uniforms could be at places. She had experienced that first hand, only hers was at ilvermorny and all she really wanted to wear was sundresses and jeans. Chuckling she shook her head.

"Sorry dear. Afraid you'll have to wear the black slacks, button up, tie, and robe. Although I can easily customize some of the linings and such. Matter of fact did that for a transfer from Beauxbatons last term."
She smiled proud of her self for maybe, just maybe, getting to make this kid feel more comfortable in his first year at Hogwarts.

Elias' mouth popped open. Customized?! Oh yes. Oh yes indeed. That was happening, and it was happening now.

Aware that Magdelas was still nearby, and desperately trying to uphold his fledgling 'mature rebel' status, he did his best to rein in his rather obvious excitement and attempted a noncommittal, "Yeah sure, that sounds fine. What would that look like?"

His voice may have been giving off a 'whatever, lady' tone, but his eyes were shouting YES PLEASE!

Victoria chuckled. She remembered her first year and how excited she was to get started and how she wanted to be fashionable. But she also wanted to be cool so she could see each change in his emotions run across his face. It made her feel like what she did in this shop mattered.

Leaning closer she looked at the outfit, “well some people like to have their monogram added to their sleeves. Some like to get custom linings in their robes. Or we can put an extra special design in your black sweater.” she shrugged and set down the rest of the clothes in her hands. “Honestly the possibilities are absolutely endless”

The possibilities are absolutely endless.

He may have looked slightly star-struck. Unfortunately, as he'd already realized earlier, his sense of fashion was still very much in its incubation phase, so with all the possibilities in the world before him, he could think of absolutely none.

Elias peered around the robes shop in casual desperation, trying to snatch inspiration from anywhere. It wasn't until he looked down at the silver robes he already had on, and then at the black Hogwarts robes, that he suggested, "Could... we do... black and silver trim? On the edges?"

Armed with a big book full of information, empty timelines, magazines, and various other wedding related things she wanted to talk over with her cousin’s fiancé rattling around in her handbag, Winnie was practically bouncing as she led the way into the Robes shop with Sachin. Yes, bouncing. The extra weight did very little to ebb her enthusiasm. Not when her best friend/cousin was getting finally married! ”I don’t understand,” she said in her usual brisk manner. ”Why you two haven’t even set a date yet? What are you two waiting for?” She paused just inside the door as she glanced around the room. ”I mean, I know why, but why are you waiting?” she pushed some hair off her face as she glanced around the room. ”It just makes it too easy to put off plans! At least we can do this.” Because dress robes wouldn’t spoil like flowers or cake or food or get canceled like renting a hall. ”And I don’t care what Cuppie says, he’s getting new robes too. I’m sure between the two of us, we can pick something out that he’ll wear.”

Well, Winnie certainly was very excited about his and Conley’s eventual wedding. She was even more excited than he was, it was plain to see. Don’t get him wrong: he WAS excited and quite looking forward to the rest of his life being married to Conley. At this moment, he was busy trying to keep up with Winnie, whom it seemed would bounce away in her current state. “Because we’re not in a rush,’’ Sachin replied honestly. “I mean, we are happy with just living together at the moment.’’ He paused for a bit as they reached Madam Malkin’s. “And we also want to settle on the right date.’’ He shrugged, still happy and content with the life he and Conley shared. They would move along at their own pace, wouldn’t they?

However, Sachin couldn’t deny the Winnie made a fine point about putting off plans. “He definitely does,’’ he agreed, that slow grin creeping across his face. “He looks extra handsome in all black.’’ Yes, Sachin especially loved it when Conley donned everything black; it was quite the sight. “Robes for me first?’’ Not that it mattered to him. He was quite good at selecting his own clothing but this was his wedding they were talking about; Winnie’s opinion wouldn’t hurt.

Happy living together at the moment? Pfftt!!! Winnie may or may not have made the pfftt noise as she waved a hand back and forth. If they were so happy living together, then Conley wouldn’t have proposed. However, unlike last time, Conley had been a bit more…traditional with his asking. No chasing after someone. No eloping. No hiding the decision from the family. Hmm…Maybe Conley had changed?

”So then what date are you thinking of?” she asked leading the way over to the men’s robes. ”Because you both look good in fall colors.” She pulled out a dark blue set of dress robes, looked it over, and then shoved it back on the rack. Nope. Blue was too close to things Conley wore very day. ”Black? Hmm…sure you don’t want him in one of…” her eyes got big in a playful way as she pulled something off the rack and held it up for Sachin to see. She was holding up a kilt which she shook a little so the hem swayed. ”He never wears his. Says it’s too formal for most things.” In fact, the last time she remembered Conley wearing the family kilt was to Nathaniel’s wedding. ”He has the legs for it…don’t you think?” She blinked for a moment. Was it weird that she had said that about her cousin? No…yes…maybe?

Sachin distracted her by saying he wanted to pick out his robes first. She shoved the kilt back onto the wrack and then clapped her hands together. ”Oh oh! Yes!” She really did enjoy spending time with Sachin. Especially when that time included shopping. ”Your culture usually wears white or gold right? Or are you thinking more European…because I don’t think either of you will look good in a morning suit.” She made a face.

There were no Hogwarts students milling about. It wasn't the start of a season, which meant it felt like absolutely nothing was going on in her store these days which, wasn't always the most fun thing for her to experience. She liked talking to people and getting them only the best outfits to wear that brought out their eyes, went well with a specific piece of jewelry, you know, making people feel good about themselves. Yet here she was sketching new designs she wasn't even sure she was going to be able to use yet.

Letting out a big sigh she pushed a piece of hair out of her face before she began to stare longingly out the window of the storefront. Just as she was sure no one would come in and she may just have to close up shop early, leave a sign, go get some coffey, or you know something of that nature, she saw two unfamiliar faces walk in. She didn't want to overwhelm them as they glanced around like she had to do for Hogwarts students, who had absolutely no idea what they were doing looking for robes.

Instead she watched ever so quietly, but sitting up a bit straighter behind her counter, waiting until one of them looked to need something or possibly wanting her to design something special.... she really liked that when things were slow. Now this just got interesting.

Yes!” She really did enjoy spending time with Sachin. Especially when that time included shopping. ”Your culture usually wears white or gold right? Or are you thinking more European…because I don’t think either of you will look good in a morning suit.” She made a face.


Sachin understood that Winnie may not understand that he and Conley really were happy with the way things for in that moment and he had no desire to clear things up more than he just had. He was content, Conley was content and that all that mattered. Instead, he just shrugged and followed her, examining the robes. There were so many to choose from and immediately Sachin knew this would be a tough job. Then again, this was one of those reasons Winnie was with him.

“Well… it could be summer too.’’ Sachin threw Winnie a grin. He was going to keep her on edge for some time longer. He nodded absently as he ran his hand over the materials of some of the robes. The materials felt so soft, so smooth and he knew that they would be comfortable to wear. Sachin caught sight of someone (Victoria) whom he assumed owned or at least worked at the shop, and wondered if she’d custom make something for Conley or himself if he and Winnie didn’t find anything suitable.

Sachin switched his attention back to Winnie to see her holding a kilt and commenting about Conley’s legs. He couldn’t help it; he started to laugh quietly. “Oh, he has the legs,’’ was his only comment on the matter. And no. He didn’t think it as weird that Winnie had made the comment. After all, she and Conley were best friends and family.

“Red mainly. But I’m leaning towards European.’’ The reason being was that since Sachin didn’t have a family of his own, there’d be no one to do all the traditional stuff for a ceremony in his culture. He never said anything about it to anyone because he hated to be pitied about having no family or being abandoned as a baby. He chuckled at Winnie’s latter comment but asked, “See anything you think is perfect?”

”Red? Really?” Where had she gotten gold and white from? Now she was a bit embarrassed. She thought she had gotten good information, apparently she was wrong. ”Well, you look really good in red.” And he did. Winnie was remembering the last big event she had attended with the boys and she had been very very jealous of Conley that night. ”I still say no morning coats. And no ascots!” She grabbed Sachin’s hand and pulled him away from that section on the store.

Which is when she noticed Victoria. Winnie noticed that the lady had a nice looking aura around her. Bright Blue which meant… ”Hi!” she said letting go of Sachin’s hand. ”Mr. Handsome Face here,” she pointed at Sachin with her thumb.”Is looking for new dress robes. Any suggestions?” Winnie wasn’t about to ignore someone who was that eager to help. ”It needs to be something special.” She looked over at Sachin. ”You don’t want to match do you?”she made a face indicating that she thought that was a terrible idea. ”But you don’t want to clash either. What did you think of the kilt because the family colors are blue and gray and purple…”

Vitoria had gotten just a few more strokes of her pen done before she looked up at the two people milling about in the store. The woman looked as if she was on a mission. And honestly it made her smile because she knew the feeling all to well. Her eyes cut over to the man wondering what he felt about her determination.

Just as she was about to glance back down at her sketch pad she heard the woman ask about any suggestions. Letting her smile grow at the question she leaned an elbow on the counter top, pushing her closer to the woman, “well,” she paused not sure if she should call her ma’am or miss. Deciding neither would do, didn’t want to upset the woman, she decided on the smart approach. “Depends. What are you looking to find an outfit for?” Oh? Something about morning suits.... she remembered on of her friends mention it was some sort of tradition over here... but she just couldn’t remember.

White was usually worn by widows and at funerals but Sachin didn’t want to comment about such sad things at this exciting time. No, he’d just let it pass but he made a mental note to tell Winnie about it sometime. His usual slow smile crept up on his face. “Thank you, Winnie.” Now he burst out laughing. “Sure, you don’t need to tell me twice.’’ Still chuckling, he allowed himself to be led away.

Sachin waved at Victoria and let Winnie go about doing the talking. He was used to being in control for the most parts socially but it was nice to take the backseat on occasions. This was one such time. “Mere lie laal vastr, krpaya. Red robes for me, please. With gold accents.’’ He paused to consider Winnie’s question and came up with one of his own. “Which colour do you think Conley would like the most to wear?’’ Winnie did know Con the longest, after all.

“I’m getting married soon,’’ Sachin replied to Victoria, grinning happily.

”Red! Good choice.” Yes, she had already said she liked how Sachin looked in that color, but Winnie wasn’t the type to be abashed by repeating herself. In fact, half the time she didn’t realize she was doing it. ”I’d say black, but you know he already has black dress robes and he’ll just throw a fit.” She didn’t know why either, seeing as Uncle Colt and Aunt Eve had said they were paying for everything. Which, in all likelihood had Conley insisting that he could pay for his own wedding, but she hadn’t even asked him about it. Nope…she knew better than to argue with Auntie Eve. ”I’d say pick what you want to see him in.” Personally? She’d pick the kilt which meant all the Phora men would then wear them. Only she was pretty sure that Conley wouldn’t be happy with the choice; something about drafts and just not being comfortable. Frankly she thought he was a bit dramatic about it. Then again, the man did wear like 12 layers of clothing almost every day as if he was 100 years old living in the Antarctic. Maybe he should try a heating charm?

”No,” she suddenly changed her mind. ”Let’s focus on you today and I can make Cuppie go shopping some other time.” Yes, that might be the best option.

She turned to the lady behind the counter. ”Do you have a shade of red that would go well with Blue Thistles and Freesias?” She looked at Sachin. ”Um…are those ok? Thistles are kind of a family tradition and well, Cuppie likes freesias.” This wasn’t her wedding after all. Nope she was just here to help. She knew Conley wouldn’t have a problem telling her to stop, but she wasn’t sure if Sachin would speak up. ”Jasmine maybe? Oh that could be an interesting combination…”
