I'm wondering if the WWF's seamstresses have been doing much lately. Time for some new threads, guys.

Notice how RVD has a new crazy looking "yin-yang" singlet every day. I read somewhere he has someone who spray-paints the designs on the singlets for hom and all. Also, Chris Jericho seems to have 5000 pairs of tights w/ designs that don't really make much sense but... whatever floats his boat.

Also, up until recently, Kurt Angle had like 2500 variations of USA-themed singlets - but he's been wearing that same red one for like months.

So - who do you think is due for some new threads?

I vote for HHH, Booker and Test in particular.

Can you dig it, sucka?

Hmmm, Test is a definite. He has nothing that makes him stand out (and his new music sucks). Anybody who's coming back needs a look that makes them standout. Even though I don't want him in the ring, I just have to comment that Bossman just looked plain old with his thinning hair, and very out of shape from the way he used to look in that outfit. They should've given him something else. Lance Storm and Christian should just go full on Tag Team, and get outfits that kind of complement each other but also style to their different personalities. Edge needs a damn shirt or catchphrase or something.

Booker T needs a feud, not a new outfit.

No! Booker's finally found a color that works on him! Let him run with it!

I've actually been keeping track of RVD's singlets. I've counted six distinct ones so far, but I'm sure there's more to come.

I think the entire production team, not just the seamstress has kind of been dropping the ball lately. For instance, they haven't come up with a new pyro in months (although DDP got one back, but it's more or less his old one). The video packages have been great though.

This stuff might be related to the budget cutting that they've had to do.

I agree HHH needs some new threads. His new (25 pounds of added muscle) body looks even wierder than it used to in that sleeveless denim jacket.

Saturn needs a hooded plaid sweatshirt, some cutoff jeans and combat boots. Kidman needs a dirty wifebeater.

I say give something new to the Big Show. His attire is sooo boring right now. Put something cool on his tights, or just go back to something like the t-shirt/shorts combo he had during his title reign.

Another one I'd like to see changed is the Dudleys. God, I hate that camoflauge. I don't know what would work for them, but I wouldn't sugest going back to the tie-dye either. While they're at it, throw something new Spike's way also (but not his "Little Show" tights!).

I'd ditch that damn raincoat Edge wears too. It reminds me too much of his early WWF Brood character.

Have Tazz go back to tights. Unless he's a little too pudgy now.

I agree with Booker being set for now. Those white trunks made him look like he was wearing diapers.

Test would be better off with the shorts he was sporting for a while. It would take away from that Nash wannabe look he's got going on with the leather pants.

Also, it would be cool to see Goldust re-debut with a new outfit come this Monday when he "reveals" himself.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head for now.

Moegates, just for the record, he's only 12 pounds heavier.

We don't THINK so, we KNOW so.

I honestly think that Booker is a pant man, not a short man.. but that may just be me.

Though I like Booker's new red tights (and I liked his dark blue ones too)...I think he looked the best in his old Harlem Heat pants.

Other people who need new outfits.
-Spike: I say he breaks out the overalls and tie-dye!

-Test: After Nash comes back, he's probably going to loose the pants anyway.

-HHH: Someone has to tell him that Denim and Leather do NOT go together!

-Saturn: Those new tights of his have to go! I actually like his military fatigues. But just going back to his old Saturn tights would be fine with me.

-Benoit: I just really hated his newest tights before his injury. He should have stuck with the "crippler" slash mark pants. Especially the black with yellow slashes! Wolverine Colored and all!

Nothing is better than X-pac! It's all in the inflection...

I wish Booker T would go back to wearing the long tights. He looks alot tougher in those for some reason.

He can leave the Harlem Heat over the shoulder straps though. I just want the long tights.

I can't believe there's actually a post where this observation is relevant, but...

There's something my friends and I noticed a year or so ago: Chris Benoit changes his tights so that he almost ALWAYS is color coordinated with his opponent. Jericho often does it too... When ever two opponents (or four) are coordinated we say that Benoit had a hand in booking the match.

Anyway, I agree: Test needs a change, HHH needs to lose the leather/denim combo and Booker looks right in the long white tights with the flames.

What about Kaientai? Especially Funaki... maybe those tights are more Japanese than what I usually see, but they just don't look right.

Big Show needs to use his Captain Insano tights.

If the Hollys ever come back they should get something new. Including Molly, even though I don't really consider her a Holly, I like the super hero gimmick for Hurricane, but not Molly.

I agree that a change for Big Show would be nice, not sure what would look good on him.

I always thought Rocky looked better in his t-shirt and jogging pants.

Someone may have mentioned it already, but all of the Dudleys need new tights. I'm sick of those army fatigues, I'm sick of Spike wearing almost the same shirt with his pants, and I'm sick of the style. I don't care if they start looking like Los Conquistadors, just upgrade the looks already!

You know, Christian could use a change of tights (something more ego-ish) and that mesh top just has to go. As Edge in one of the more recent Weekly Vistor™ little comics, it reeks of suckitude. Speaking of Edge, didn't he have that style of tights back in 1998 when he was tagging with Sable against Marc Mero and Jackie? Seriously, he too could benefit from a change.

I think after a while guys just stop caring. I remember Bret Hart stopped wearing new tights when he was about to leave the WWF and all during his WCW tenure. It'd always be black tights and a black tank. I always wondered why. Then he just stopped wearing sunglasses and a jacket to boot.

I've always liked Jericho's tights, but since he jumped to the WWF they've mostly been black. He had some really good looking ones in WCW...(white w/ purple flames on them).

Test had some red pants once...don't blame him for not wearing them again.

RVD, Jericho, Edge, Christian, Storm and Angle seem to be the only ones that consistently change their outfits...which is appreciated by most.

Test also had silver pants I believe. I could be wrong, but I think it was when he was part of T&A.

Yeah, I remember Test's silver pants.

I think Justin Credible, when he comes back, is in serious need of a tights makeover. Raven should also go back to the denim-and-comic-t-shirt look.

I do think that the WWF could use a little HBK-style. He always had the best tights.Try it, it's like kissing a peanut!

I havent read all the posts, so someone might have said this, but i think Trips needs a wardrobe change. Not back to the pants, but a different color trunks.

What a Manuever!
