I was re-reading through some of the current storyline chapters and I noticed something odd. As you probably noticed, the "Meet Baroque Works" chapter page story has Crocodile busting out of prison. But on 398 he has....TWO HANDS. And once he gets the sea-cuffs off, he gets his golden hook back...as well as a cigar...and a Zippo. Now I know a manga like One Piece isn't big on practicality or certain types of continuity, but I've always wondered about the clothes of DF uesrs. Aces' clothes don't burn off every time he uses his flare-flare ability, much to the fan-girls disapointment. Buggy's clothes always come back together. And Choppers pants and hat never seem to rip, not even in Colossous Point, which is my name for his current state... just 'cause it sounds better.
Luffy's hat keeps getting cut up though, or at least it used to, until he got it a freakin' draw string.
There are other things, like how Kakku's clothes streched some absurd lengths during beast transformation. Same with Luchi.
It seams that wounds are permament, such as Luffy and Crocodiles scars...just where did Crocodile get that face long scar? And clothes kinda differ. What'cha think? It may be just because Oda can't have all his DF users running around naked.
