Non-Traditional Choir ROBES

Help!!  I am "looking for something different" in apparel for my church choir, and haven't seen anything I like in the usual catalogs.  I'd like something that can be worn over street clothes, like a Nehru jacket, that all ages would look good in, but which has a more contemporary feel like some of the groups that have left the traditional tuxedo and gone with a more casual-elegant look.   So to translate that to the choir robe, and a director's garment that would look of a piece but different, with ethnic elements.  Some of the Irish groups have a neat look to them, but having a uniform as opposed to a robe over their regular clothes would be troublesome. Or maybe I should just require them to come to church in their choir uniform?  Anyone ever done that?  Any suggestions of websites or companies would be so welcome.  Many thanks!
