Clothing is a subcategory and type of apparel that generally offers good insulation but poor protection from damage.

All apparel functions in the same way mechanically. Clothing and Armor primarily differ only in their categorisation and a tendency to either offer damage or environmental protection respectively. Therefore, see Apparel for details on the mechanics common to all types of apparel.

Clothing is typically stuffable, made from textiles, and crafted at either an hand or electric tailor bench. Clothing can be also be purchased via trade, salvaged from other humans via the strip order, or dropped by a colonist. Clothes stripped from dead bodies have the "Tainted" modifier, which lowers its value and gives a mood debuff to wearers of the piece of clothing.

Manufacturing clothing

Manufacturing clothing uses the colonist's Crafting skill.

Most clothing can be manufactured at the following production stations. Some few items must be crafted elsewhere (e.g. various crownsContent added by the Royalty DLC, crafted at smithies), or are uncraftable by colonies (e.g. psychic foil helmet) and so can only be acquired via trade, quests, or from defeated raiders, etc.

Crafting spot:
Produces only tribal clothing, and with a 50% workspeed penalty.
  • Crafting spots are limited to crafting tribal clothing (even after researching Complex Clothing)
  • Industrial colonies can never craft tribal headdresses or war masks (but can trade for or capture and use them)
Hand tailor bench:
A neolithic production facility with a 50% workspeed penalty, offers the full range of craftable clothing.
  • Tribal colonies can produce all items
  • Industrial colonies cannot craft tribal headdresses or war masks
Electric tailor bench:
An upgraded hand tailor bench that grants a faster production speed while powered or at the same speed as its lesser version while without power.
  • Same tech restrictions as hand tailor benches

Clothing values and materials

Clothes are typically made from textiles - i.e. fabrics and leathers. Their stats vary heavily based on the material. Picking the right material for any piece of clothing is far from arbitrary and the default setting will just have nearly all materials checked. The algorithm by which the crafter picks which material to use is unknown.

General summaries of the primary types are available below, and specific statistics can be directly compared on the Textiles table.

Fabrics

Cloth is the most accessible material when wildlife is scarce. It can also be easily farmed from cotton plants or cheaply bought. It is used as baseline material in Crafting Bill Hints.

Advanced fabrics tend to have significantly better armor values and at least comparable thermal resistance values, meaning they can easily replace cloth in every application but are harder to come by.

Wools

Wool is a subtype of Fabric. Can only be acquired from domesticated animals. They offer very weak protection and are highly flammable but offer high insulation multipliers and are very easy to acquire in amounts. Care must be taken to not mix up the Wool and Leather from an animal, as they have very different values.

Leathers and Skins

Leathers offer pretty good defense and are easy to acquire in most biomes as a sub product of hunting. Leather are defined by the type of animal they were taken from. While they generally provide good armor, their insulation multipliers can vary significantly - both significantly below and above cloth. They always have a high Heat and Blunt damage resistance, with low flammability.

Apparel layers

Each item of apparel or utility gear is worn on a specific location of the wearer's body. That location is determined by two things:

  1. The body part groups it covers.
  2. The layer or layers it occupies.

Apparel combinations are limited by layer and coverage - an item cannot be worn with another item that covers the same body parts and on the same layer. Thus, items covering the same parts but on different layers are compatible, as are items on the same layer but with no overlap in coverage. Items that cover multiple layers conflict with items on all layers.

Layers are also used to determine the order in which armor calculations are performed, with the outermost layer's armor applying first, and progressing through the layers until the attack is stopped or there are no more layers.

The layers, from innermost to outermost, are:

  • Skin: The closest layer to the body, and mostly used for apparel below the head.
  • Middle: The second closest layer to the body, and mostly used for apparel below the head.
  • Outer: The third layer from the body, and mostly used for apparel below the head. Note that it will be displayed on the pawn's sprite above all other layers, even though it is considered below the following layers for actual mechanical effects.
  • Belt: Technically the fourth layer. A distinct layer for utility items to allow them to be worn alongside any other apparel but not with each other.
  • Headgear: The fifth layer, and used for headwear. There are several items that cover body parts typically covered by the other layers however, in which case this will be above them.
  • Eyes: The outermost layer. A distinct layer only used for the blindfoldContent added by the Ideology DLC to allow it to be worn alongside headwear.

Which body parts currently have items that occupy each of the layers is shown in the table on the below; layers and body parts which are not currently used by gear were omitted. As such, the hands and feet which are not covered by any apparel or any layer, are omitted.

  • Body Part Group Coverage Skin Middle Outer Headgear Eyes Belt Image

    Torso Torso × × ×
    Waist Waist ×
    Neck Neck × × × ×
    Legs Left & Right Leg × × ×
  • Examples

    • You can't wear pants as well as tribalwear, since both cover the "skin" layer and cover the legs.
    • You can wear pants and a button-down shirt, since while they both use the "skin" layer they don't cover the same parts.
    • You can wear pants and a duster, since while they both cover the legs pants use the "skin" layer while a duster uses the "outer" layer.

    Comparison tables

    Apparel combinations are limited by layer and coverage - an item cannot be worn with another item covering the same body parts and on the same layer. Thus, items covering the same parts but on different layers are compatible, as are items on the same layer but with no overlap in coverage. Items that cover multiple layers conflict with items on all layers.

    As such the following tables are divided by layer, but note that individual items on that layer may not be incompatible if their coverage does not overlap. For example, pants and the t-shirt which both occupy the Skin layer do not cover the same body parts, and thus can be worn together.

    The hands and feet, across all layers, are NOT covered by any apparel present in base game.

    Headgear

    Uniquely, the Broadwrap covers the neck and both shoulders. This causes it to be the only headgear to conflict with the Slave Collar. The Slave Collar, is also unique in that it occupies the Headgear layer, but only covers the neck which is not covered by any other headgear options.
