    Ok, so we all know Shikamaru told naruto everybody became chuunin, so we saw Lee and tenten with vests, ok....why doesn't Sakura, Hinata, Kiba, or Shino have a Chuunin vest? Shikamaru has had his for a while now, and temari, kankuro, and neji don't require to wear them sicne they are jounin. Why isn't anybody else wearing a vest? Is it only required of teachers? I thought all chuunin required a vest.

    It's not a requirement, just like not all Jounin's wear the jacket.

    yeah, it's not required for them to wear. Shizune only wears hers on missions, so everyone should have a vest, they're just not wearing them

    I can understand the confusion though. Look at everybody earlier in the series who were chuunin or jounin, you see them wearing vests.

    Yet none of the primary Konoha characters in our series, except for Kakashi, Shikamaru and Rock Lee, wears it.

    Guess black is the fashion trend now.

    Shizune only wore it on a mission in fillers.

    And there?s an even bigger reason for them not to wear it:

    looks

    Think of Hinata with that vest... or Shino for that matter. Nono.

    I guess Kishimoto thought it would be boring if every single one of his characters had a Chuunin vest on. Byebye 50% of eveyone's individual outfits.

    Heh, a millitary organisation where you dont have to wear any form of uniform if you dont want to. Diciplined :p

    lol, i only remebered because her sleeves when she wears the vest, is too long on her arms

    Anyway, Kimmimaro-sama said it best. It would be boring to have all the main characters wearing a flak jacket. We wouldn't be able to see Hinata's hot new bod if she wore the flak (or would we? lol)

    It was probably to hide all the poisoned weaponry she had - it was a pretty cool look on her.

    Kishimoto may have been inspired by the X-Men movies - these black outfits we're seeing remind me slightly of these uniforms in that movie.

    I guess it's the "next generation" of shinobi - and they're going against the vest tradition. Shikamaru always seemed to me like he would be an old-fashioned guy so he's wearing a vest. And Rock Lee, of course, is just following Gai's lead.

    O.o They are Jounin? Really really? Mmm..I must have miss it if they mention it on the manga. I thought they are all only Chuunin....ummm....but I did notice that Tenten and Neji both don't wear one....ummm....this is weird I think I need to reread those chapter again...

    Anyhow, I guess Team 8 doen't wear one because it's not require unless you are on mission.

    Lee wears his because he wants to look like Gai, and Shikamaru wears his because it's too troublesome to tell people his rank.

    lol Wrath, that is totally the reason Shikamaru wears his vest.

    It is required on a mission? I guess that makes sense from a mass cobat type situation, but would you really want such an obvious sign as to who the leader is? Seems like putting a giant target on your back and yelling, "Take me out first!" :p

    lame reason, but i try = maybe only ones that are team leaders get one. when shikamaru got one his team was disassembled due to the leaf's military decline.

    maybe kiba-hinata-shino haven't been team leaders as of yet.

    I think that Kishimoto wanted to emphasize the kids' growth by putting them almost all-black clothing. It's more sophisticated-looking. Shikamaru is wearing a vest to distinguish that he's a chuunin examiner like the late Hayate and Genma. As far as Lee wearing a vest, I believe it's just a mere comparison to Neji. Since they are the same age and from the same team, Kishimoto may be tellling us that Neji is more advanced in skill.

    I guess it's been answered, though I think those crazy kids should respect the jacket. It's a nice vest imo :amuse.

    I guess the ones who don't wear their vest finally realized that they didn't need to wear it because guns are nonexistant.

    Um, not to sound rude or anything but I think he told us Neji was more advanced in skill when he made him a jounin and made Lee a Chuunin

    Umm... about the blackness of their clothes... Only Naruto's and Kankurou's (obviously) are confirmed to be black, since we saw them in colour... It's B&W manga... lol some of you have forgotten it.

    Who in the hell would choose practicality over fashion? Especially at that age? Keep in mind they are all about 15 years old, they are bound to be more concerned with appearances :p

    I'm guessing some ninjas can choose what they wear as a uniform, since there is no strict dress code.

    It's pretty obvious that you don't have to wear the vest.
