Some interesting facts have been posted in Wonder Man's wikipedia that I was unaware of. It reads:
When revamping the look of the character by giving him a red safari jacket and trousers, the artist George Pérez noted that
“ The idea I was going for - and I don't know if it was my idea or the writer's suggestion - was a Doc Savage type of approach to the character, where he wouldn't look quite as super-heroic with the spandex and everything.
It makes sense and I like the idea, also many times his costume was trashed in fights and he would, much like Luke Cage, end fighting in rags.
