This has been bothering me for a while, and I thought I'd just ask and see what other people thought. Sasuke's new outfit has him wearing a thick rope around his waist, to hold up what seems to be a kind of an extra skirt (I say extra since he is already wearing long pants). As far we know, Sasuke's abilities don't involve ropes or hiding things under skirts (he's not a puppeteer or something, for example... and although I guess he could have kunais under there, Naruto is able to hide kunais in his tracksuit). Big thick ropes don't really make good belts, especially ones that are bow-tied like Sasuke's, and are probably uncomfortable to move around in. So do you think Sasuke's rope and skirt serve any purpose, or are they just there for decorative flourish? I don't really mind aesthetics for the sake of aesthetics, but every time I see Sasuke a part of me worries that his clothes will fall off.
