    Title: Some new (and old) armors appear "flat" when placed as deco
    Reproduction Rate: 100%
    Blocker? No, but I paid for them and am surprised they look radically different from similar pieces
    Details: Details and screenshots below this post
    Steps to Reproduce:
    User Specs:
    OS: Windows 10 (10.0.0) 64bit
    CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790K CPU @ 4.00GHz (8) System RAM: 16326
    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 GPU RAM: 4058
    SotA.EarlyAccess.LIVE.Win.64.714.Date.12.18.17
    Area: POT_forest_metropolis_01c_template/New Britannian Market
    Area Display Name: New Britannian Market
    Loc: (-27.2, 61.6, 130.0)
    Debug: UE9UX2ZvcmVzdF9tZXRyb3BvbGlzXzAxY190ZW1wbGF0ZXxOZXcgQnJpdGFubmlhbiBNYXJrZXR8KC0yNy4yNSwgNjEuNTYsIDEzMC4wMzYpfCgwLCAwLjk5LCAwLCAtMC4xNDEpfDEyNzMuNDA1fDQyLjY2Mzg0fDYuNDA4ODk=

    On the left is suit jackets, and all deco armor (up to the recent releases to include all missing armors as deco) displayed the way these do. On the right is The Stretch Goal Admiral and Riding Outfits. They're flat and really don't fit the rest of the display (and I was quite looking forward to displaying these rare pieces with the rest of the museum collection!)

    I would expect the Admiral and Riding outfits to appear similar to those Tuxedos, or if needed, like the assassin armor below which has longer coat-tails as well:

    Here is the new "Torn Wedding Dress" next to the old Wedding Dress Style:

    The torn one is a 2-piece, in the background you can see the art direction for a few of the other two-piece outfits with a skirt component.

    Elite Elven Armors are a mix of styles compared to the older ones - I'll call it new and old style:
    New - Elite Elven Mage: Chest, Gloves, Pants
    Old - Elite Elven Mage: Hat, Boots

    New - Elite Elven Archer Pants
    Old - Elite Elven Archer Chest, Boots, Gloves, Hat

    New - Elite Elven Fighter Pants
    Old - Elite Elven Fighter Chest, Pants, Boots, Hat

    This image shows the new style and old style contrasted with the items from the original Elven Stretch Goal and Elder Elven Armors (both expired)

    I would like all items to get the same treatment and art style as the other addon/pledge/store items have been to date - and if items have a different look when placed as decoration (ie. flat) it would be nice to know prior to purchase so I will know they won't fit the museum look (the reason I purchased and kept them).

    Pants look good flat to me actually, and take up the same footprint, so "starched" or not is fine to me - but it was a surprise when I placed my Admiral/Riding Armors, Shogun Bundle Armors and the Elite Elven Armors.

    Semi-comprehensive list of Chest Armor's that are "flat"
    1. Gentlemen's Admiral Armor
    2. Gentlemen's Riding Armor
    3. Ladies' Admiral Armor
    4. Ladies' Riding Armor
    5. Elite Mage Armor
    6. Ardoris Shogun Robe
    7. Ardoris Priestess Robe
    8. Ardoris Kimono
    9. Firedancer Top
    10. Torn Wedding Dress
    11. Torn Wedding Tuxedo (there's at least 4 tuxedo's in-game, this is the only flat one)
    12. Wealthy Merchant Outfit

    There may be others, the above are just what I noticed immediately and had either paid for already (or earned in telethon).

    I would like to add to this report that the Red Dress, the first female clothing (non-armor) I think, lays flat and looks terrible on display. This is very sad for a clothing tailor such as myself.
