Devs might have said that they want classes to be distinguishable from afar but it didn't work even early in the game when people started to use custom chestpieces because they'd keep chest bonus anyway. You can't tell from afar anymore if the fella in the robes in 30-20 meters (with weapon down) infront of you is a vanguard or a Jedi or a commando. It didn't work so it would be nice to see Bioware fixing it and adjusting some things, like more features for character customisation. I'd love to see Shadows/Assassins being able to use single saber (Consulars have wonderful Saber Strike animations) and many double-bladed ligthsaber share animations with single-blade attacks anyway.

And having a betl around the robe is not practical - how can you take off the robe quickly to get set for heavy combat? :d (look at Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan or Obi-Wan vs. Darth Vader on Mustafar - did they have belts around their robes?) No one is paying attention to the belt, it's not a distinguishable feature. It only causes huge butt.
1. Didn't say it works, I just said it was their reason. If everyone wore robes the silluette of the Knight would be distinctly different from the consular.
2. Ever seen anyone take off their robe in SWTOR? No. Didn't think so. Instead of having to make every robe removeable they just made them flop around less. So it's "semi-practical". The consulars are supposed to be a more static class so they don't need belts on the outside. I still agree with having belts removed from Knights, just telling you my theories as to why they are there in the first place.

Even Zallow on the loading screen is wearing Guardian's armor but he's not wearing a belt. None of the Jedi / Sith from the CGI are wearing belts around their robes... You wrap up your bath robes but not Jedi robes D:
Si vis pacem, para bellum

Traditional Jedi robes please! And then I am gone from general discussion. Promise! :]
Devs, it can't get any more iconic and traditional than this: http://i.imgur.com/9ha8ELu.jpg http://i.imgur.com/2NoBT6o.jpg http://imgur.com/7nHRBnW http://i.imgur.com/5J9oXnP.jpg http://i.imgur.com/ek3XDEc.jpg

I would love KotOR 1 Jedi robes, too!

Bump, no pun intended.
Think for yourself. Question authority.

Yeah, I noticed that today. It is less noticeable if if you were skirt-like robes instead of pants.

Hey everyone, if you are noticing this issue with a particular item, can you post the name of that item for us to investigate? Thanks in advance for your responses!

Pretty much any and every "robe" chestpiece on body types 1 and 2. I can personally point out Jedi Battlelord's Chestplate and the one from the legacy vendor (can't remember the name offhand and I'm at work). I'm sure others will also have specific chestplates to post.

It's a class of items, such as every single Trooper armor that has a waist-cape. For example, the Rakata Eliminator's Chestpiece (and every other variant on that particular chest model).

Do you guys really not know about this? It's been here since the beginning. It looks terrible. Pretty much any robe or anything with a "flap" will give you a massive caboose in out of combat stance for male 1 and 2.
