  1. AFAIK the Cotton Robe trick is that cotton robes sell for more than the cost of the base components plus the synth cost, effectively granting you a bunch of money as soon as you get to Lindblum in disc 1.

  1. The cost to buy a Wrist and a Steepled Hat and to Synth a Cotton Robe is less than you can sell a Cotton Robe for.

    The process of buying tons of Wrists and Steepled Hats, Synthing Cotton Robes, and selling nets a 630 Gil profit per Cotton Robe sold. In later Discs, you need to be able to reach Dali (for Wrists) and Atla's Mogshop in Burmecia (for Steepled Hats).

    --Buy from Lindblum (Repeatable) - Disc 1
    --Found in Lindblums Industrial District - Disc 1
    --Buy from Summit Station - Disc 2
    --Steal from the broken Black Waltz #3 - Disc 2
    --Buy from the Black Mage Village - Discs 2 & 3
    --Buy from Atla's Mogshop in Burmecia - Discs 1-4

    You can also use Steepled Hats + Feathered Hats to make Yellow Scarves for when you're in the Black Mage Village area and cannot reach Dali in Discs 2 & 3 (a relatively short time with lots of good stuff to buy), but they only give a 40 Gil profit per Yellow Scarf.
