    Its an anime. Its supposed to be fantasy. Hence, if a person had long hair, it wouldn't get caught cause it just doesnt. If their toes are exposed, it wouldn't get cut cause it just wouldn't. All that matters is that Neji looks cool with that long hair, the mask just adds to Kakashi's mysterious image and colors make it more interesting to watch. Its subjective what people think of the clothes and attire overall but the bottom line is that it has little or nothing at all to do with practicallity.

    Cool Naruto-ttire

    They want their ninja to look Unique, Hot, Adorable, or just plain Weird. It'd be boring if everyone was in a black onesy with a short haircut.

    *Open-toed Sandals - 15 ryo,
    *Metal mesh top (that's gotta imped movement somehow) - 60 ryo + tax,
    *Bandages to "strategically place" - 2 ryo and some change,
    *Leaf Village Headband "Bling"- 20 ryo even.
    Being a ninja on Naruto - Priceless.
    There's some things logic can't buy. For everything else there's "Naruto-ttire"
    You guys are so un-hip it's a wonder your bums don't fall off. - Zaphod Beeblerox

    About the shoes? Just be glad they aren't wearing geta. I've heard those things are REALLY hard to walk and run in.

    i like this answer! dont think too much n enjoy the movie... that's the only thing we can do, isn't it?

    I'd prefer explanations (not necesarily sane) that don't involve authors/creators/marketing ploys ("Kishimoto wants it that way/so they can look good/etc.").
    The reason I hate the clothes so much is that whenever I see Naruto in his high-visibility arctic survival gear, I can't help but think of that hideous yellow jacket that Mark Hamill is wearing at the end of Star Wars.
    ...It haunts me...
    Strangely it does not remind me of the same series's pilots' uniforms, even with all the orange.

    This is how Iga Ninjas used to dress. Iga Ninjas were a real ninja clan, and one of the few surviving clans that still practice their traditional art. Of course, they don't actually kill people anymore.

    As the Ninjas moved speedily, their costumes had to be light in weight. Furthermore, because the Ninjas had to hide themselves frequently, even in the daytime, the color of the costumes had to be inconspicuous. Colors mostly used were dark blue, reddish gray, brown and gray. Although the black costumes are most famous, they would actually catch the eyes of the enemies even in night. Therefore, the Ninjas used them only in religious festivals and dark blue was usually chosen for practical use. The dye for dark blue costumes were are used to prevent poison snakes as the cowboys used dye in blue jeans for preventing rattle snakes.
    Yeah sounds like Naruto doesn't follow this stuff. I thought at first, when I first heard of Naruto, that we'd finally get a ninja anime. Then I saw he was a yellow-haired kid that wore an orange jumpsuit then I immediately realized I was wrong. o_o Oh well. We have yet to see a real ninja anime.

    For those interested in what ninjas were really like, here's the official website of the Iga Ninjas.
    And here's the direct link to the page about clothing.

    In case any of you want to correct, question, comment on, or suggest anything to me regarding my translations or use of Japanese, please do. My sources of learning have all been listening to people and kinda forcing my brain to interpret, rather than actually translate like a dictionary.
    I understand I'll make many mistakes (I'd be surprised if I translate something mistake-free) but you have to understand that I'm doing my best.

    Personally i love mortal kombat's classic/cliche ninja designs, so when i started watching naruto the outfits seemed odd for ninja.... open toe'd shoes? As i watched the series the costumes grew on me... except those open toe'd shoes. Essentially i think it's as -deadpool- said. The best explanation is that characters costumes in some way eflect their personalities. Naruto is loud and stands out, sukura is pretty in pink, sasuke has that dark side.... i'm sure there's other examples.

    I wouldn't have too many problems with their dress if everyone dressed in neon, high-vis jackets, toeless shoes, and little headbands, but their attire is a horrible combination.

    If everyone dressed to blind passerby, then they might have a case for dressing in day-glo. Then, at least, they could blend in with civilian populations.
    But they still wear conspicuous headbands that identify them as ninja, so that possibility is out.

    It's as if they want to be massacred; they can be seen from miles away and their villages can be identified readily by the headbands.

    And they rarely, if ever, attack at night in droves.

    i find not much problem with that.... they are not the original ninja type.......but they're more to the modern ninja.....so i don't mind much about their attire.....and i think it's just a manga/anime series,so i don't mind at all........it's just like accepting women/girls in anime/manga fighting with SKIRTS!!!!!

    Did anyone stop to think that maybe Naruto wears orange ON PURPOSE, because he WANTS people to notice him? Given his outlandish personality, doesn't that make sense?

    And consider this: Since he wears orange, it would make him an obvious target. This of course means he would get attacked a lot more (usually by over-confident people), but they fail 99&#37; of the time because:

    1. Naruto beats the crap out of them (either with his Shadow Clones, Rasengan, Kyuubi powers), or

    2. One of his friends/allies bails him out (usually at the last second).

    The entire series seems to thrive on this fact (but so do most series, actually...the star of the show ALWAYS comes out on top at the end, don't they?)

    That said...maybe "orange" is just a plot point, a way to emphasize the fact that he's the star of the show (orange makes him stand out [and the starring character is supposed to "stand out"]...the starring character deals with the most BS and battles [and any person in orange is bound to be attacked the most]).

    Plus the fact that he wears orange -- a color NO ONE would ever wear -- makes his friends know exactly where he is. If he didn't wear orange, do you know how dangerous (or awkward) it could be for his friends? Here's an example:

    (Let's say ALL ninja, including Naruto, are wearing 100% black. Sakura tries to find Naruto for some reason...)
    Sakura (taps guy on shoulder):
    Naruto?
    (The guy turns around. It's Rock Lee.)
    Oh damn, here we go... -___-+++

    Speaking of Lee, why isn't anyone talking about Rock Lee's outfit?! It's GREEN and SPANDEX!!! >____<

    ...Omg.
    Seriously, do the outfits really bother you that much?
    They're just fictional characters, and defintely not real.
    Even if they were real, I doubt that their attire would really make a difference at all. They would be skilled enough for it to NOT matter. Imo, a ninja should be stealthy enough no matter what they wear. ;]

    Hah. Yeah I know what you're saying! xD

    Naruto doesn't look very "ninja-y" in his orange...jumpsuit...thing.

    He looks more like he's ready to go hunting.

    But, it is an anime. xD

    A very beautiful set made by KP ^_^.I love you so much!
    Thank you Lawlietth <3 I love it

    This is the actual reason:
     
    The Naruto dimension does exist. You say "Wha?" Believe it. Hehe. Anyway, Kishimoto found the anime realm by falling in his toilet one day after being completely wasted before for 8 days straight. He entered the porcelain god's portal, and wahlah! poofed in Naruto's dimension.

    So he meandered about for a while, and came upon this village in the middle of nowhere where people wore bizarre impractical clothing, yet still managed to perform superhuman techniques. The villagers snubbed him when he asked them how it was possible and if he was on some sort of weird drugs because they assumed he was drunk (which he was). So, woefully stumbling around, he found a magic door leading straight up the nose of the Third Hokage carved from the mountain and wahlah! poofed into another alternate dimension.

    This dimension was the Magical Faerie Happy Go Lucky Land of Lucky Charm Mind Control! There he learned that the Hidden Leaf's children actually did come from storks--stork regurgitation! And the faeries from MFHGLLLCMC were attaching themselves to the children of Hidden Leaf after they had been regurgitated. These faeries had the special ability to control the wardrobe and physical appearance of whoever they attached to, thus the rainbow ninja were born!

    And whoever read this thing through, I seriously commend your gumption (hehe, I said gumption...) and wonder why you don't have something better to do. Kinda sad to have this much time, ya know.

    Naruto's Bright Orange Outfit is so bad.

    How can he hide if he's wearing bright orange?
    He might as well wear an outfit that looks like a big bull's eye

    Real ninja usually attacked at night in droves with the element of surprise. They most often attacked warlords' castles/fortifications/residences/camps and so didn't need to worry about other ninja.
    Ninja rarely had to fight other ninja; they were sort of like militias or mercenaries (depending on which particular group) that went after those in power. The warriors defending the leaders were samurai, archers and peasants armed with spears.
    Ninja were not meant to act as a military; they were more akin to scouts, assasins, special forces and paramilitary groups.
    They were masters of psychological warfare. If the conditions allowed it, before attacking a warlord, they would sink logs into nearby bodies of water so that they could later fun across the water on these logs. They appeared as if they were walking on water. Such apparent supernatural abilities unnerved their foes, often softening the ninjas' foes' resolve.
    They were masters of stealth and balance.

    Naruto is a mockery of all this.

    The Kishimoto ninja rashly attack without thought, often alone. Even when in groups, they rarely ever travel with more than three or four other ninja.
    These ninja serve as a loyal military to villages, and little to no war forces are seen otherwise.
    Ninja v. Ninja is a staple of every episode.
    There are absolutely no samurai.
    The intricacies of psychological warfare are reduced to creepy eyes that either lack pupils or seem to have a surpluss of them.
    Naruto and others are loud, clumsy, and clad in highway construction vests.

    When I (foolishly) started this thread, I was merely curious as to whether or not anyone else found this asspect of Naruto as entertaining* as I have. I'm not trying to attack the show.


    *In the way it's fun to watch a poorly made, poorly dubbed old monster movie.

    [EDIT] I just realized that the loud clothes can be explained another albeit impractical way. That world has a custom that dictates that the more obnoxious a person the more obnoxious their attire must be.
