I think in general a lot of the armors are a bit too elaborate I think it works with a few like the Drow leather, drow studded, padded and githyanki armor, but many of the others-esp the enchanted varieties-look too over designed/gaudy for my tastes, particularly the enchanted versions. The obnoxious 'horns' that stick out of the upper arms of the upgraded scale mail being a prime offender for me. Hoping we get some more options like what we can see Aradin and his group wearing (and that I don't have to handicap my characters too badly by doing so). It's a shame that so many of the best looking armors get obsolete almost immediately. Like Asterion's padded armor or Shadowheart's chain shirt. Both of those look great, but particularly in the case of the former, you want to replace it as soon as possible.
This is a problem I tend to have with a lot of "high end" equipment in games, frankly, so I can't even resent BG3 too strongly about this.
The "cool stuff", that looks fine enough, that "dresses well" while being somewhat grounded in reality, tends to be low level trash that gets replaced rather quickly, while the powerful armors often look like cheeky Halloween costumes at best when not openly, decadently "gaudy".
It's a bit jarring when your group of "seasoned adventures" roams the city streets looking more like a bunch of of flamboyant viveur who lost their way to a Louis XVI gala rather than the "Team Badass" you wanted them to be.
