Really sucks to have picked out a good look for my companions only to have it revert to clown costume state during companion conversations and certain cut scenes.

Seconded! All my trooper companions have different dyed armors, and the dyes don't show up is the cutscenes, which has kind of ruined my recordings. Hopefully this'll be fixed, or at least looked into!

Bug confirmed and to me, very important (especially as a trooper where you mix and match gear pieces and then unify).

On a similar note, the Hide Head Slot option could also use a fix for companions in conversations.

This has been since launch I believe. At least for the last year. Uh.. yeah, it's not getting fixed. Enjoy. Sorry to be so nasty about it, but I too am tired of all the texture errors.

I know your feels especially when I put all my havoc squad members in the same armor style only with different colors

Unify colors hasn't even existed since launch. It wasn't part of the original code. Maybe that's why it's bugged in the first place, they simply missed something.

My Jaesa wears a dress top from the drummond kaas social vendor and a elegant dress bottom, belt, gloves, boots from a Cartel pack, the top is white, the bottom black, ofc with the color match she is my beautiful white knight, but when i see her in convo, its horrible, white blouse and black skirt, with black gloves. it makes her look aweful.

I've definitely noticed this problem and would love to have it fixed. Companion conversations that have to take place on the ship are a disappointment when the outfit I carefully pieced together and dyed for my Companion turns ridiculous. At least with the hide Companion head slot bug, I can just take the head piece off!

A couple months after launch, I finished my first character and took a screenshot of the final "group picture" scene. I was so proud of myself for having managed to get all my Companions in matching gear and non-awful headgear. But boy was I happy when they introduced Companion match to chest. No more having to hunt for matching gear for each Companion!

. . . unless you want them to look good in cutscenes on your ship. Which is where some very important story things and Companion conversations happen. >.<

Confirmed, needs to be fixed. Only seems to happen during companion conversations and class story quests.
Seems perfectly fine for me during side-quests and heroics and whatnot.

Someone explained in another thread that the Devs have put it down to horribly cluttered original coding. The code is a mess in those original conversations and not a quick fix. This is why unify works in new cut scenes, but not any of the originals.

I very much feel your pain. I have a very nice kit for my entire Imperial Agent team and it looks like a hodge podge of garbage in the final clips.
