Elves aren't Humans, though; depending on their particular race, an Elf lives anywhere from a few centuries to an entire millennium. Outside of combat or emergencies, they* tend to think or change at a commensurately slower pace. I know this isn't always represented in D&D-based fiction, but it is apparently a part of their psychology. That said, they are primarily Chaotic Good in Alignment, so you should expect quite a bit of individuality in each individual's wardrobe.
