If you could be so kind as to link where they said they were changing the item as opposed to the preview?
The main point of my post is inconsistency. One item they decide to change the art for, another they change the item.
For an "accidental" or "mistaken" item, I've noticed the in-game icon AND the preview image both showed a regular suit. I'd think that when the item itself, the icon for the item, the preview window for the item, etc all display one thing I could trust it.
