Are you kidding? X-Men presents a perfectly plausible backdrop for why an underground strike force of mutants would wear protective uniforms, and First Class goes out of it's way to have Xavier state, "Since none of us have mutated to endure extreme g-force or being riddled by bullets, I suggest we suit up." That all makes sense, and it's easy to connect the dots. If the surviving mutants of Days of Future Past are simply strutting around in bright, colorful "eye catching" outfits in a dystopian future in which they don't want to catch eyes, it's going to raise questions. There should at least be a line of dialogue or some plausible reason presented for why they would be dressed that way. Why not? Is taking an extra minute or two to provide additional credibility a problem? I don't think so.
