What Roman slaves wore depended on whether they were educated or not. Regular slaves wore clothing of the cheapest material while educated slaves wore clothes made of better material. Though slave's clothing did not even compare to a patrician's (wealthy person's) clothing. Slaves working in the mines and quarries went naked.

Roman slaves dressed the same as anyone else -- they wore a tunic and cloak, shoes outdoors and sandals/slippers indoors. The Romans were, in fact, very concerned about having their slaves appear identical to free men. This was because of the concern that if the slaves were a uniform of some type, they would see how many they were and could try to revolt.
