So when Buddhist monks and nuns wear the saffron colored robes do they always look like the traditional robes? I met a woman out in Berkeley that looked like she might have been wearing saffron robes but she had this thing on over it all that looked like a saffron colored puffy ski jacket. Is this some sort sort of religious clothing that I wasn't aware of? I thought there was a special official coat that nuns and monks are supposed to wear when it is cold that doesn't look like a puffy ski jacket.

Re: Good question!

well I'm not 100% sure that she was wearing the robes anyway. She was so much shorter than me that I didn't get a good look at her clothes until she was walking away. It was certainly the right color scheme. Maybe in Berkeley it is ok to wear puffy saffron colored ski jackets?
