Boring!! These types of robes are already in the game (low level robes mostly), what most of us want is new colours for them, we are fed up with the endless shades of brown and grey with the odd white one thrown in, how about blues and greens, maybe some yellows. In the comic books Jedi wore a vast rainbow of colour, yes we could do without the silly shoulder pads, and Knight will still have to wear armoured robes, but please more colours.
Peace can be found, above all passions. Through passion, I may gain strength.
Through strength, I may gain power. Through power, I may gain victory.
But for every enemy fallen, a new foe rises.
For every chain broken, new chains bind me. Only the Force can set me free.

My guardian Twi'lek is in the CM rep armor, pink and blue and it looks great. Who says a knight has to be in plate armor. In fact, I bought the one on the CM and wore it for a bit but put it on Kira (actually looks great on her).

Stop trolling my post with miss information and lies, and your opinion that it's boring.

Yeah, right. all of them are heavy armor and they have hoods up and belts wrapped around waist and odd colours and patterns. Please, go somewhere else.

I'm afraid not, there are several low level plain brown robes for consulars that I've come across playing, only one was moddable, but it was in the game. Also several medium armour sets which were brown robes over a chestpiece. Hoods come down when a headpiece is equiped, I usually use a metal headband style headpiece. Yes they were all belted at waist. And I agree at most of the patterns, they are bad, but I still want more colours available, nothing garish, just some decent basic colours, the type people might choose to wear because they like the colour and cut.

Nothing says that a knight has to be in plate armour, in fact my Sentinel can't use heavy armour, just that most medium to heavy armour is going to look like armour. Glad you've found an outfit you like, the only one I found was in the Cartel coins, and now i'm on Makeb, I need to wear something else because the armour part won't go in the outfit i like.

Show me pictures if you want to argue. All consular robes are either heavily ornamented, their legpieces are skirts or they have lots of unnecesarry textures forming belts and who knows what else on their backs (Omenbringer robe).

That's the thing. All of the good hood-down robes with the belts under the robe are light armor, meaning Knights can't wear them. Sure, there's the Consular robe on the Cartel Market. That's a nice start. Now finish it; bring us the rest of the way and just give us plain old Jedi robes, with the outer robe being over the belt, like the Valiant armor, and with the hood down–not invisible, like the Classic Conservator's–and without ugly shoulder-plate armor (like the Conservator's non-classic has). I don't even care if the outer robe is short-sleeve, like they all are in this game. Long-sleeve might cause clipping issues. Just give us a simple, hood-down, no shoulder-pad, robe-over-belt Jedi set in tan or brown, and I will not complain about Jedi gear again. That is all we want.

Oooh, you mean the outfits that jedi wore 3000 years later when the republic had been at peace for a thousand years and jedi werent considered guardians of the republic in a warrior role, but more like diplomats?
You mean that outfit?
In that case, i want a stormtrooper outfit. http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__...by_obihahn.jpg
and for my bounty hunter i would like to have a mandalorian shock trooper armour in the style of boba fetts armour. http://www.bobafettfanclub.com/manua...armor-1000.jpg

but thats not how the game is designed. It doesnt take place around the time of the "iconic" movies. No outfits are exact copies of the movie outfits.

Umm... sure they can... they'll just have to settle for having a lower armor rating... you know, kinda like you would if you chose to wear nothing but some heavy cloth as your armour

I'd settle for just the Helmet.

Then I could walk around in my undies with it on, just like at home!
