    My current band does dress shirts, slacks, and sometimes ties. "Classy casual" you might call it. Not a suit, but not jeans and t-shirts either. The kind of thing you'd wear on a date. I don't have a pic handy.

    I once had a band that, in a stroke of stunning originality, did all black with white accents, right down to our instruments:

    Honestly don't really care as long as it sounds good. I think people spend too much time worrying about trying to achieve a "look" than working musicianship.

    Looking like one that gets paid well seems like a good idea to me.

    A color-theme for the instruments is perhaps a bit campy (or ZZ Top) though, if I'm getting the gist of the OP...
  8. Thank MTV for much of that.

    Image is everything.......when you are a moron.

    I've never thought of what I like bands looking like. But recently I got utterly distracted when the drummer of a alternative/metal band wore a Rolling Stones shirt. I believe Paint It Black got stuck in my head, they never played it and I was kinda disappointed.

    I can't pull it off but I like a little glam. Sparkle, scarves, little bit of flash mixed with the classic mod/hippie/whatever look.

    Nope, Im very much a psycheldic/blues/jazz type:bassist:.
    I guess the look reminds me of Pink Floyd (think WYWH/Wall Tour).
