I'm still pretty impressed by Dickson [In reply to] Can't Post

I would compare dwarves to dwarves, or men to men, if you want to be even more fair. Try Gimli to Gloin:

Just in general, all my Hobbit enthusiasm still can't convince me that Maskrey is better than Dickson, at least not yet. But it may have more to do with the different races we've focused on, and their status. The dwarves' outfits are just more bulky overall than men (so they won't look as sleek or bonded to their wearers), and they haven't been through hell yet. How much a costume has been aged and abused gives it authenticity, but as you said, not everyone has been living in the wild for years (Aragorn) or even crossed a great expanse of Middle-earth (Boromir). The dwarves have only just begun their journey, and shouldn't look like they've been dragged through the mud just yet.

BUT, that image of Thorin comes after the events with the Trolls, Stone Giants, and Goblin town (and maybe after being in a warg's mouth). I would say it is looking surprisingly good for all that (as is its wearer), with not a tear or bit of scale armor out of place. You could certainly argue that isn't as realistic looking as Aragorn's wardrobe after having been through similar misfortunes.
