    Classic outfit?

    I just signed up today so i don't know how the forums work but anyway this seemed to slightly resemble the classic outfit. Its been bugging me since the boots slightly resemble the original design. I was thinking that maybe on the island Lara might have ripped her jeans to make them into shorts since i would not like to be wet with pants on unlike shorts. So what do you think?


    Anyway i edited the photo to see what i'm talking about(p.s. it was kinda of quick and i didn't know how to make rips in clothing.

    I agree that it looks a bit like the classic outfit from the first game. Especially the colour of her t-shirt.



    It was said in one of the interviews that CD did this deliberately to keep at least mere reference to the old Lara.

    Yep maybe they have the same colours and material, still I really like the new outfit way much better

    I don't think it looks like the original outfit. I strongly prefer the TR1 outfit and think this one would have been better if it did look more like that.

    Essentially the new look IS the classic outfit, just reimagined and modernized for the times. It basically updates the original thematic design to make the outfit relevant and practical in a more contemporary real world context.

    You can't really compare them because her old outfit was made back in the day when games were all..... you know.....not how they are nowand when she had triangular shaped breats

    A good point. You didn't have advanced texturing back then, so most outfits were just simplified & stylized color patterns of the polygonal areas that made up the character model. Much like how old comic book character's were just basic color areas to create the effect of spandex conforming to their muscular body.

    This kinda goes with what I said about this new look being the classic outfit, reimagined and modernized. With today's tech, you can take that thematic design and portray it as it would be with real fabrics and clothing seams & stitching patterns, so has a more real world contextual appearance and not the simplified and stylized "comic book costume" look of the old games.

    Well obviously Lara wasn't too keen on the pants at first, since she wears a lot of short shorts later in the story-line.

    so she doesn't like the pants anyway did any of you see the rest of the paragraph not sure if you did but do you THINK she will rip the rest of her pants up in the game? i mean since lara is stranded on an island surrounded by water at least let her rip the rest of her pants off to make the shorts if they do have outfits i think it should be labeled IX Outfit Ripped(a.k.a. "classic")

    Those pants really don't suit her at all. Got to say I too am hoping they end up getting ripped to make some much nicer shorts.

    It's not like Lara's never had full legged outfits before. Why does that seem not to suit her now?

    It would be fantastic to have classic Lara as an unlockable with TR9's graphics.
