Business clothes now available for your avatar


This week it’s time to get down to business for your Avatars. The following business wear is now available for your avatar:



Blue Formal Shirt

Moleskin Pants

Waistcoat and Shirt

Suit and Tie


Pencil Skirt


Pinstripe Blazer

Twin Set

All clothing choices are free, and will remain available. It is easy to tell what is new when you are in the avatar editor, just look for the gold star. Any item of clothing with a gold star is new since the last time you signed in to the avatar editor.

    Are the clothes available in all regions? ‘cos I stall can’t find the cowboy stuff.


    They should update avatar clothes more often.
    Like every week, not two

  • Painkilla05

    Cool beans. Thanks Xbox.

  • aka Scratch

    Cool more clothes. Thanks!

  • Exu

    Well I guess it’s a week late but regardless, sounds good and you can’t really complain.
    As an aside Major, it would really be nice if you posted pictures when you informed us of clothing updates, not a necessity but it would just be nice to see, you know?
    Anyway, I’ll give these an airing in the day, because it’s really bloody late now.

  • Casper663

    great will check it out, you should let us try our clothes on

  • Buzzy360

    Funny u guys give free stuff and people still find a way to grief ….lmao

  • ItsNymo

    cool! I was just looking for a new shirt, too!

  • DarkMagic56

    Finally I can make Forrest Gump!!


    They should allow you to make your own clothes!

  • Exu

    I do like the suit, good to see that the item on the icon for the dress-up option is back! Moleskin trousers are good too, blue shirt is ok but not really for me, and I’m not a big fan of the waistcoat but more stuff is good stuff.

  • F34RL3SS L34D3R

    We need some Military avatar clothes. From the different armed forces. That would be Hot!


    Like GoW armour stuff @Fearles Leader! :D I’ll try the new clothes out when I get my xbox back from repair. I love new avatar clothes I think they’re great! Keep ‘em coming ;)

  • Omega Technique

    I’m still waiting for a black hoodie. Man, who doesn’t wear black hoodies???

  • Nex Antonius

    Like Valentine said, I think a weekly update would reduce complaints. This was a good update, though.

  • Imallvol

    360 RROD’s Sunday, so I can’t see!!!

  • Silv3r89

    Those Moleskin pants are classy.
    Can’t wait to see what gets thrown our way next.

  • TaintedAssasin

    not great this question is, what happened to the pirate clothes?!?

  • PiNkEyE69

    What ever happened to the pirate clothes that I heard mentioned a while back?


    Yeah Pirate clothes FTW!!!

  • I Yova I

    can we talk about piracy? :P

  • Matthew M G

    Thanks MS for the new avatar clothing. Can you give us an idea when we’re going to see more games (I believe Uno Rush and the new retail Trivial Pursuit game are the only two in a long while…) using avatars in them?

    Also, any word on when we’ll see avatar clothing being given away or released via achievements? Unlocking Street Fighter IV duds, a Master Chief suit for beating Halo Wars, or making your avatar look like an Umbrella project from RE5 would had been really cool…

    Like Valentine said, I think a weekly update would reduce complaints.

    No it wouldn’t. The sad thing is people would still find something to moan about. It seems some just want to vent due to their lives being miserable or getting kicks out of being negative all the time. If the subject at hand won’t do the trick for them they will sidetrack the topic into something else like why isn’t such and such out yet and so on. It’s the same thing with playing people on XBL or any other online gaming service. There are those that want to have fun and those that have fun by giving grief to others.

    Anyways that is my rant for the day and thanks Major, nice update on some FREE items.

  • JonnyDFandango

    Oh, the irony of Canadian Loony.

    Thanks for the dud’s, Maj.

  • Turtle502

    The only thing they should think about doing is releasing a bunch of stuff at one time, or releasing additional colors of things they’ve already released (seriously, how hard is it to offer 12 colors of a shirt…???)
    Otherwise, updates to clothing are nice…even if I found a look for my avatar…and I’m not changing it!

  • Secret Fuller

    @NNY VALENTINE yea they should, but its much more work.

  • ValeYard13

    It feels wrong to like dressing my avatar up this much ;) Love the new clothes, thanks MS! Now, where’s my ninja outfit…

  • w4rrior eh

    Thanks, can’t wait until more games come out the incorporate our avatars. (1vs100 anyone??)

  • Anonymous

    Haha, awesome! Keep it up Rare and MS =D

  • SpaceNinjaDino

    Good! Some normal clothes. Crazy outfits are cool, but we haven’t had normal clothes in months.

  • I OgreRox I

    I need nikes!

  • votemarvel

    New clothes are always appreciated but how about something that can make my avatar look a little sexy?

    The vast majority of stuff released for the female avatars looks like something my Mum would wear or the chavs who hang around the town center drinking cheap cider at night.

    Also I’d really appreciate some clothing that let my avatar look as if she has boobs, at the moment she has the chest of a pre-pubescent boy.

  • DavidGX


    Can I PLEASE just get an option to turn my avatar off already? I want it off my dashboard.
