He's got a very rough and tumble i don't give a **** aesthetic going on for him. Something that preludes him to wear wife beaters and and leather vests...not so much the facemask/flamboyant outfit. Even in the comics wolverines persona has never matched his outfit.
I think that's more about what you're reading into the character than anything the costume is saying about him. I don't think it's about being flamboyant as a character. It's a product of the world he inhabits and it's iconic. It is part of him.

Meh. The original trilogy essentially delivered on those designs. The movie suits aren't a world away from that. Hopefully Singer can at least deliver something more appealing since he is saying the leather suits are out.
