I like to use faction related clothes. I also like my armor.
For the Brotherhood of Steel, I could use the BoS Uniform. For the minutemen, I've got the Minutemen clothes, The Railroad doesn't seem to have any kind of uniform, so I use leather clothes/whatever "normal" clothes.
But for the Institute, all I got are various colored lab coat, that doesn't allow armor.
I ve saw on F4 wiki that there is a "Synth uniform" that would work well... But is only stealable on a companion or on two of the vendor in the Institute.
Did I miss any other choice for role-playing a Institute Sole Survivor? Or should I accept to get rid of my equipment?
