The Sith would not wear the same clothing as Jedi, hence the different clothing style. Although I do think they could use some help with clothing designs, making them Jedi with darker color motif is not the way.
go type the word sith into google image search and see how may come up with the dam ugly bulky shoulder crap, it's not how sith dress, most of the SI gear is ugly and needs to change.

So "no offence" but you don't really know much about sith.

"no offence" but the SI gear is awesome and suitably sinister-looking. Go away and leave my gear alone.

I just got my supreme inquisitor chest off the GTN. It a lvl 36 random world drop (orange). It has a hood and is a full length open robe.

The only place I know it drops is The Foundry. Most likely off a chest or trash being it's boe. I would have gladly paid 100k for it but got lucky and whoever sold it on the GTN had it for 7k. I used formal pants from Drommund Kaas so I wouldn't have a skirt until I got the Supreme Inquisitor pants at 39.

If this is the look you want like I did, either get on a 50 and farm foundry or check the GTN everytime you're on the fleet. I checked everytime I was from lvl 10-35 and finally found it. I think it looks bad*****
Y'all can't make me have a signature!!!!! No way no how!!!!

Well lets see. we have:

http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Sith_apparel

In this we have Naga Sadow... with big shoulder pads

"Sith Garment used by Sith forces..." with shoulder pads

You go to;

http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Sith_Lord

And a fair number of them have shoulder pads (big and small)...

True both sites are Wookipedia, but they are based off of Star Wars materials. You might have a view of what the Sith are, but it appears not to be what the creators of Star Wars (George Lucas et al) have. I would suggest that you get familiar with them and not try to live in denial.

Just because you dont seem to be able to move past WoW, doesnt mean that others are as chained to it. Why would someone stand totally erect while in combat (or combat stance)? Its a dumb way to get blasted real quick. Again I would suggest that you check out the past Star Wars works with Sith in them, lots of shoulder pads and olde tymie robes. Very few "Jedi" outfits (only on Jedi who switched to being Sith, or typically really only being "Dark Jedi").

Again, I think many have this image of the Sith being nothing but "Jedi who went bad" and just wear "darker Jedi robes", but they were created as their own culture (which seems to have a fair amount of big shoulder pads) and ideology. if you want to look like a "bad" Jedi, then maybe a Dark Side Jedi is what you want. If you want to be a Sith, then you have to realise that they were created with an image that is not like the Jedi.

Would I like to see more variation? Sure. Would I like to see better design? Heck yes. Do I want to look like Anakin Skywalker or any other emo "Dark Jedi"? EFFF NO! I am SITH!
