Fashion or Function

RS offers a large variety of clothes, casual wear (elegant, berets and cavaliers) and combat gear (plates, shields and legs) the problem of choosing a good looking outfit is not easy. My choice would be Guthan's plate and legs, glory, whip, rune defender (may change to Dragon Sq), dragon boots, barrows gloves and a lizard skull. Then comes the topic of this post, would you like an outfit with better bonuses or one that looks better. Few combos have both. I am slightly more fashion than function. I chose Guthan's over Torag's 'cause Torag's had that massive beergut. That time, I chose Fashion over Function. I traded in my Royal Helm for a skull. once again, Fashion over Function. However, many people who can afford a Dfire Shield don't buy it because it's ugly. I disagree. Walking around with 27 mil worth of armour that can breathe fire is worth it. In my eyes, it isn't so much ugly as it is menacing.

What our outfit is made up of can mean the difference between life and death. In many cases, uglier outfits can easily save your lives just as a good looking one makes you look more impressive.

My wishlist is: Full Bandos (no boots) Dragonfire shield, fury and a fire cape. This could take a while...

what i like to were is... well, first i changed my clothes to all black(with blonde hair). i were gold gloves, gold boots, gnome ammy, team 19(i thinnk) cape and either a black cavaleir or a highway man mask (mask is alot cheaper!) is is light and looks nice. but for a funtion sorta thing i go with full dhork, or veracs(full), and i am saving up for guthans. i were the nice clothes when im doing non combat skills, mainly flechting and firemaking and farming (the 3 "F" skills) :)
