There is easier solutions such as adding hood down models of existing armors in game or just allow neutral synthweaver robes to be use by both sides and retain the hood down look.

I never did see the logic in having all Jedi robes with hoods up and Sith robes with a mixture.

It should have been a launch feature.
Agreed. If I were to guess, I would guess that they want the hood to appear on the robe regardless of whether it is up or down. All the robes in the game seem to have a model where it has the hood up or down. Getting that into the game might be a hassle.

But honestly, as a customer I'd settle for less. There are head items in the game that can remove the hood, such as the jedi consular's headgear. I do have that tiara on my jedi consular... but I hate to use it, since it sits across my character's eyebrows. Not to mention, it looks silly. So I'm forced to stick to the Jedi Initiate's Vestments.

So, I'd settle for a hood toggle that does the exact same thing like the jedi consular's headgear; removes the hood completely. That shouldn't be too hard to implement, should it? They already have the tech to remove the hoods :/ .....................

I wouldnt mind if they just put in 1 orange hood down chest piece at this point.

Trust me, the problem of the robe is not on the hood, it is down at the butt. >>> Body type 2 male Jedi in Heavy/Medium armour.

The Jedi Initiate's Vestments are hood down.

I recently started my first force-user on rep side and i must say - i never saw so ugly gear on imp side. And hoods, yes, no problem on rep side - a lot of helms, but on rep side there is almost nothing.

It's not the male, it's not the Jedi and it's not body type 2. It's all characters, of both genders, and all four body types, when wearing a cape with a belt over it. It happens to troopers too. It happens to female toons. It happens to hulking type 3 toons and curvy type 4 toons. It's just most obvious on male type 2.

And as mentioned, that at least is fixed in 1.4, according to the test server, thank the Force. Hoods are likely not, since if so, you'd probably have heard about that from the test servers too.
