To illustrate:

Charles Xavier in 2000's X-Men with costume design by Louise Mingenbach.

Charles Xavier in 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand with costume design by Judiana Makovsky.

Charles Xavier in 2011's X-Men: First Class (forget the designer's name at the moment).

Notice the progression. With Louise's work, his suits are all dark, and not really fitted that well, and lacking color or real personality. Judianna's work showed a far more fashionable Xavier with pops of color and mixing and matching of patterns. In First Class, Xavier again had layers, rich textures and color variations. The latter two examples look like money. Louise's work looks cheap. And it's very possible that she had a smaller budget than the latter films, but then again even in X2, everyone still looked bland.

"Give The Rights Back To Marvel" is officially now a thing.
