Jedi have been wearing pretty much the same thing for 20 000 years.Know your canon and lore.
Almost all jedi outfits in this game is not canon and will never be, there is a reason why they dont
dress like that in the movies or the new movies they make, because they dont want star wars fans
in the cinema to start laughing and asking people around them, is this a bad joke ?
Wait wait wait wait wait... so that one book is canon?
But the clone wars isnt?
You seem to pick and choose what is canon and what isnt canon just to fit your own views.

There are plenty of times where jedi wear armour.

Also, if you want the game to look exactly like the movies in everything, why are you even playing this game? (and no, you cant answer "but i only want the jedi to look the same" because then you are being a hypocrite)

As always, I will give more information as I have it.
In the plans as in it's being worked on?

I hope that when these are released, they're released in multiple colors. Not just brown but also dark blue, black, white, etc.

Here are some robes you can try. They are all synthweaving of medium to heavy weight or adaptive. The hood up/downess for some is based upon what kind of head gear you wear and your species.

Medium:
blade master
sentinel


Heavy:
reinforced chanlon (Probably want to get different pants)
knight's crusade
peacekeeper (fairly tatooine-y)


Adaptive: Requires cartel coins
Eradicato'rs Warsuit (chest only) (could be heavy armor with no over belt)
Sanctified caretaker (chest only) (more a "The Clone Wars" style honestly)


Your mileage may vary.

Oh you can bet they wont be happy with any of those because they dont look exactly like the robes do in the movies...
This isnt really about having outfits that make jedi look like jedi (because they already do), its about getting those exact robes.
Kinda like if troopers started demanding exact copies of clonetrooper armour or bounty hunters demanding to get the exact helmet that boba fett uses or smugglers complaining that han solos outfit isnt available.
Neither of those are in the game, but there are outfits that look close enough...

They're hooded, that's the major problem ^^

It would be nice if there were robes that didn't have a hood up.
What's the point in spending ages creating the look of your character if all you can see for 95% of the game is the back of a hood?
None of my Jedi wear any of the main chest pieces for this reason. It all tends to be adaptive stuff.

Still I expect that if they actually gave Jedi some nice looking gear then they'd have to remove Kira's statement regarding the Sith always wearing the latest fashions.

Personally i would very much like to see the traditional robes in the game but also stuff like these:
Imperial Knights1, 2, 3
Lot of different styles
You might say imp knights are thousands of years away but i really dont care about that.
