Clothing in GTA San Andreas

A clothing pickup obtainable during certain missions in GTA San Andreas.

Clothing in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas has been significantly expanded over its predecessor, allowing the player to extensively customize clothing the player character wears using the wardrobe room, down to accessories. Articles of clothing are categorized by the stores they were purchased from (see #Clothing stores), following by the types of clothing, including:

  • Torso: Tops (shirts, jackets, tank tops, etc.)
  • Legs:: Bottoms (pants)
  • Shoes: Footwear
  • Watches: Worn on the player character's left wrist
  • Chains: Necklaces
  • Shades: Glasses or masks.
  • Hats: Headgear

Clothing has a 4% influence on overall Respect, and 50% on Sex Appeal.

Clothing stores

There are six different clothing stores that do business in GTA San Andreas. Each has a fitting room, where the player may "try on" items before purchasing them. Once an item is purchased, the name of the item changes from blue to green text; any article of clothing purchased at one of these clothiers is immediately worn by the player and made available in all wardrobes, which are contained in safehouses. However, if the player already owns an article of clothing and wishes to change to them at any corresponding clothing store, the player will have to repurchase the article of clothing, making wardrobe changes at clothing store impractical after the initial purchase. Some of the clothing on sale are available in green, the Grove Street Families' gang color.

Shooting or aiming a weapon at anyone inside any of these stores will disable purchasing from the shop until you leave.

Special outfits

Special clothing are specialized outfits that are awarded to the player via missions and girlfriends, provided in sets that encompass the top, bottom and shoes. While seemingly depicted as independent sets of outfits, the clothes are in fact simply added over the player's normal combination of clothing, as the player's normal top, bottom and shoes are still being worn. The player's watch, hat, necklace and glasses remain visible while wearing a special outfit.

If the player is arrested or killed, the player's special outfit reverts back to their normal clothing after respawning.
