    I was reading through the forums when I noticed a fanclub graphic (NaruSaku) and I noticed it had him (Naruto), in a standard issue chuunin flak-jacket. I got to thinking and visualizing and I thought: Hm, that might not look too bad on him...

    I don't think there's any need for a design change just yet, but I think that some time in the distant future Naruto should go more "professional" looking and ditch the ambiguously orange costume. Because let's face it, bright orange is not the color of stealth. I have in my mind the image of Naruto saying, "this is good, now a hunter won't mistake me for a bear because he can see me clearly."

    I just feel the orange could use a change eventually... A flak-jacket isn't necessarily the route to go, but I think that's another step forward Naruto could make.

    Thoughts?:)

    Hehe, Naruto wears orange cause it sticks out like his personality and hair. Besides changing the orange is changing some of his trademark.

    That is a good point: Orange sort of shows the old Naruto's need for recognition. But I am hoping he will mature, and as a sign of that his clothes will become more pragmatic... At the very least before he becomes hokage (which he will), he should be looking more like an elite ninja than the class clown. The new outfit is definitely an improvement, but I think this line needs to continue. Perhaps the next timeskip can have Naruto at age 18 with a mainly black with less orange (basically a reverse of what it is now).

    Maybe he doesn't have to completely give up the orange, but the current outfit will need to be toned down eventually.

    But do you agree that he would look cool in a flak-jacket?

    I agree, Naruto should stay away from this:
    and go for something more like this:

    or maybe even this:

    I think he'd look pretty cool, of course he'd wear it over his jumper.

    :laugh I never liked the ssj4 look :p

    He'll eventually leave the orange outfits behind I think. I can't see him wearing it as an adult hehe. There's a cover pic with him wearing a flak jacket I think :oh He does look rather cool :D

    Omfg... icoselitham you have scarred me for life with your DBZ pictures... I hope that Naruto never even touches that anime.

    Also, I've always wondered why Naruto doesn't just go around donning his black undershirt. That looks just fine with the orange pants :D. But that's just me and my obsession with black clothing.

    Idea: Black base with orange designs for the outfit. Retains some of the old Naruto but lets you know he's all grown up :wink

    I think it'd be wiser if he would wear something more furtive, but I don't think that Kishi would change his trademark so quickly. Who knows, maybe he will.

    I dunno. I really like his current look. Orange seems to work with Naruto for some reason. And don't say anything about DBZ, because GoKu's hair was originally black so orange went with him before the blond hair, and that's not the reason why I think it works for Naruto :D

    Because it is only natural for things to change in time, people most especially. It is sort of like looking at the old Naruto costume and saying: why change it? There isn't anything wrong with Naruto's current outfit for the time being, but eventually I would like to see him in something more... "pimp."

    BTW ChamCham, the blond hair is one of the things that makes Naruto's orange costume bad :xp. You can't really make much more of an open statement than orange and yellow. Don't get me wrong, orange is my favorite color, but I wouldn't want to be wearing it on an excursion to enemy ninja country :S And you haven't said anything about the flak-jacket: doesn't Naruto look cool in that? I should find a pic and post it but I'm so lazy :sweat

    I agree completely. I liked the change after the timeskip but if he ever loses all the orange, it just won't he Naruto! The orange is part of his personality. Even as Hokage, who wants to see a somber, dark, blending in Naruto? Not me! I love that he is the most noticable, attention grabbing ninja ever. He'll loose the orange when he learns to shut his mouth, and I don't see that happening anytime soon.

    Furthermore, He wore all black at Saidaime's funeral and it was nothing special.

    He doesn't have to change the orange color it depends what color mixes hr adds, like Oranga and white make a good outfit mix. Black and orange does it too, but bright is better with bright most of the time.

    hmm i think the if naruto wears the flak-jacket on his usual attire, the colour will not contrast to each other,maybe he needs to change his outfit or dont wear the flak-jacket at all..

    All I had to do was look at your avatar and sig to understand where this came from :tem

    A-Whaa? Who in anime history has had a good looking orange and white outfit :S? If anything that would clash even more with Naruto's uber blond hair.

    I should have made myself clear, but I can't find a damned picture which would help. I meant that the flak-jacket would go along with the chuunin outfit. It would kinda look weird to see 2 jackets on Naruto :S.

    Yeah true true he don't look bad in the outfit but I think I prefer Naruto in his orange outfit because it compliments his personality.

    ChamCham, I think he meant orange is more flashy/attention-getting than most other colors...

    TenshiOni, thanks for posting that pic of Naruto in the chuunin outfit. Now that we have a point of reference, doesn't that look better than orange? If there's another timeskip to when Naruto is 18, he would look kick ass in that.

    Why should the headband be lowered? What's wrong with it where it is? Or do you mean the top part so that it doesn't look like a bandanna?

    nope, after seeing that image (BTW, thanks), I still prefer the new orange/black look. He looks good in blue but thats too much blue ... and that chunin outfit says Kakashi all over - its just not flashy enough for Naruto ... maybe good for a one time sneak mission but way to muted for everyday wear. Naruto doesn't run away or hide EVER - he always faces everything head on - so why does he need a more muted outfit anyway?

    Yeah I ment the top part, I think he'd look cooler if you could see more of his hair.

    No arguements here.

    But... there's just so much orange on his current outfit that I can't see him keeping it over the next (most likely distant) timeskip.

    It's just so reminiscent of DBZ that it makes me shudder!
