As you may or may not know, you do not always have to wear armor in Guild Wars 2. There is an alternate set of “casual” clothes, if you will, known as Town Clothes. All it takes is a simple click of an icon, and you’ll be switched from your battle-hardened protection, to some much more elegant and charming duds.
To clarify, Town Clothes are not the same as a Costume. Town Clothes are only available to players outside of battle, and they will be forcibly switched if they happen to find their way into an encounter. Whereas Costumes go over your armor sets, Town Clothes do not. Town Clothes appear to be in the game for the sole purpose of allowing a player to equip much more sensible attire when in towns.
