Sorry to be so nasty about it, but I too am tired of all the texture errors.
Yeah, this is one of those bugs that have been around so long, it is now considered a feature. Enjoy.
I know when I gear my companions, I avoid using dye or color matching. As I know companion conversations are going to be messed up by gear distractions. I know, OCD in action. This is plainly an example of a prominent and complete lack of attention to DETAIL, that is persistent through-out this game. Just another papercut and a perfect signature of Biowares development priority. That priority is the Cartel Market.
