I'd like to know how people prefer their equipment in Pirate101: do you prefer to have a good look; have equipment that matches each other in looks? Or do you ignore fashion and just go for equipment with the better stats. For me, i prefer equipment with good stats over good looks when questing. However, when i'm just chatting with friends at their home or mine, i prefer fashion a little bit more. I know people would often just stitch equipment stats with a better look (why else would people have wanted the seemstross in the game?) but forget all that here. I want to know if you're a big hit for equipment with better looks or better stats. I'm looking forward to hearing your replies.

I usually just care about stats, unless it's a top-level pirate and a really high-end item that I just can't stand, then I'll give in and stitch it. But if it's a lower-level pirate I won't stitch at all, I just wait for them to gain a few levels and outgrow it instead.

I'll take both the look and the stats and go to the stitchery shop.
