The first Slipknot jumpsuit, as we know, are the ones they are wearing on the cover of the selftitled album. These were red. Shawn didn't want orange because he said they would look like prisoners.
During the All Hope Is Gone era, Slipknot reverted back to the red jumpsuits which were very similar to the original they started with. (photo above). Sid, Chris, and Shawn wore their old self-titled masks for the whole show. Corey and Jim wore their self-titled masks for half of the show and wore their All Hope Is Gone masks for the other half. Mick, Joey, and Craig wore their All Hope Is Gone masks for the whole show. An effigy of Paul Gray stood between Craig and Joey's drum kit. The effigy included Paul's self-titled mask, his self-titled jumpsuit and his left-handed bass guitar beside it. For the American leg of the tour, they wore their red Iowa jumpsuits along with some matching to their Iowa masks. The entire tour was in honor to Paul Gray.
The IOWA jumpsuits are not very different from the old ones. Except instead of the barcode they have a goat on the chest and a Tribal S on the back. Also on the IOWA ones they have a little ribbon on the right hand with the Tribal-S logo on it (kinda like the nazis had).
The numbers on the IOWA ones are on the left hand. Also the goat on the chest was in two colours, sometimes red and sometimes it was black.
During the Iowa tours, Slipknot performed in black jumpsuits and red jumpsuits, both had very similar style with the Goat logos and were slightly different from the original self-titled jumpsuits.
The VOL 3 Jumpsuits have the Slipknot Star logo on the chest where the goat and the barcode were, these jumpsuits are dark blue. On the left arm appeared the band members number.
These jumpsuits change during the Vol 3 cycle and looked more formal than previously before. This jumpsuit was more like a casual buttoned shirt with cargo trousers.
Shawn Crahan 'Clown' often used to wear a tie with this jumpsuit.
This era of Slipknot was much harder to judge. The band all wore different clothing in the promo shots, mostly dark shirts/cargos. During the live tour, a wide variety of clothing was used; some band members appeared in jumpsuits for some tours whilst other kept the more traditional black jeans and jackets.
As the photo on the left, Corey wore a military style jacket and dark jeans. All band members wore different things but still kept the traditional numbers stitched on.
After Paul Grays death, the band performed a massive tour and performed in the red jumpsuits as seen in the self-titled photo above. They wore the red jumpsuits mostly, and it was to honor the late passing of Paul Gray, taking the band back to full circle.
Lots of emails come in and ask where can you buy a Slipknot Jumpsuit? Unfortunately, these jumpsuits are hard to get hold of and most of the best ones are fan made. These jumpsuits usually go on sale on places like eBay.
There were some officially licensed Slipknot jumpsuits put on sale. You can find them at the following retailers:
