The most pointless C-store Item to date.

Seconded, with a nomination for double-breasted jackets.

I beg to differ. Selling emotes on the C-Store are the most pointless items to date. This certainly ranks up in the top tiers, though.

I generally like the idea - lack of Holodeck or not be damned.

But not so happy with the female options - not enough variation for me, particuarly for skirts and footwear (and the existing on are ugly in my opinion...) The male options I liked.

The outfits look nice.

That said, they are over-priced and of very little use seeing as the extra costume slots available in C-store cannot be used in conjunction with the new outfits.

Please Cryptic, STOP LIMITING THE CLOTHING!
Why can't I wear the dress top with pants? Or put a one of the other off duty shirts on top of the dress? There's already glitch that shows it! Why can't I choose different shoes with it? SERIOUSLY. Please undo all the restrictions on the Orion uniforms too, I know I can get a loincloth with pants on my off duty uniform, but there is NO REASON to limit me on my uniforms.
I second this.... when I first chose the "dress" it kept my pants on the screen and it looked awesome

As you say.. it's in "HOLODECK" or "specific situation with Q"... They do not wear this stuff just for being off duty and go drink something in a bar.... Qed.

I agree that this is one of the most useless things in the C-Store.

And about the TOS, TNG, DS9 and VOY era clothes, at first they were just with special promotions, which is "ok," but then Cryptic made them available for everyone non-stop on the C-Store which made it a bad thing...so far the C-Store has had a negative aspect on STO lol.

"More money to Cryptic/Atari Store" is more accurate.

I bought the new Formal Wear (even though they're a bit overpriced), and was disappointed.

The look of the male suits (I haven't tried the female clothes yet), is just "ok" - The pin stripes are too thick and don't continue to the pants, the collar-less shirt cuts with your next so looks really bad. No fidoras, no cuff links. I can't change the shoes.

You can't mix'n' match them with other clothing.

I only have one "Off Duty" costume slot, so I can't save multiple suits... Cryptic, you need to unlock these for all costume slots. Especially if I buy more slots in the C-Store, I should be able to fill them with these clothes.

Over all I give the new Formal Wear a C- grade.

Hahaha, yes. I have seen similar outfits too. I totally agree with you by saying "errmm... hello?!? You're a Klingon, not a Ferengi!"
Ferengi? I was thinking more chicago pimp :p i'm waiting for cryptic to release the 'wheres my pimp cane' emote to go with this. that will round out the Dolemite klingon quite well I would think...

seriously cryptic, start using some common sense here. whoever thought adding clothing like that to the game was a good idea needs a serious talking to.

This is a pure fluff add-on that for the first time has me really questioning hard what Cryptic is thinking. Dress uniforms make a lot of sense but dress suits from the 20th century?
theres the words I was looking for. to say nothing of the fact with your limited development time and resources this is the kind of thing you decided to spend it on. not a smart move
