    Probably something more recent from him rather than the old look. Not that I ever really considered his looks to necessarily be costumes as much as outfits.

    Something that's not stereotypically black gang member.
    If he does have a costume, hopefully they base it off of this:

    A yellow T-shirt, a pair of jeans, a cool looking belt and some sunglasses - that'll do.

    Yeah, I'd be perfectly happy with the t-shirt look myself.

    How would you explain Cages fondness of the outfit?

    I like the Marvel Now version as a costume but jeans, t-shirt, leather jacket, & shades for just street wear.

    Something like this would be ideal:

    The outfit, not the model, obviously.

    I was reading an article that mostly was comparing the traditional portrayal of Luke Cage to Bendis's portrayal. However, Part 2 makes a good defense of the traditional costume (at least, if they go the Heroes for Hire route):

    Part 1 is an interesting read for some discussion of what makes Luke Cage the character he is. But it wasn't really on point for this topic, so I'll just leave it as a link.

    That's pretty much what I think, an athletic shirt, though maybe one with a bit more interesting an original design than just flat yellow, but that's not necessary. I pictured him seeing it as a marketing image, the yellow shirt makes him stand out and he buys them in bulk as his "uniform" for his Hero for Hire business. Something simple, practical, and unique

    I would find it funny if at one point he try's the third one out. Could make for a hilarious scene!

    Having seen Daredevil, I'd actually like him to have some sort of proper costume

    I'm totally fine with Cage never wearing a costume, and at some point he'll simply wear a yellow shirt.

    Luke Cage 'costume' in the comics was barely even a a costume for a good reason.

    Cage wore the yellow short and headband costume as a marketing gimmick. Beyond that reason there was never really a need for him to wear a costume.

    It isn't like Luke Cage needs to dress a bat to scare his enemies or needs a suit of armour to protect himself. The lack of a real costume suited Luke Cage man of the people character. Cage is a hero who could walk down your local street and you can talk to him. Cage isn't one of those slightly removed superheroes.

    No need for cage to have a costume. Leave that to DD and iron fist.

    I do think he should have a bit of a costume. Just some small elements that go beyond everyday dress. He could have the CAGE belt or a chain belt, arm bracers, fingerless gloves, unique boots and things like that.
