In Red Dead Redemption, there are a total of thirteen outfits (not counting the PS3 exclusive) that John Marston can wear.
Acquiring these outfits will take some time as there are certain conditions that are needed to met before it can be unlocked or purchased. It’s possible to get all of them but it will require a little patience as some will take hours to get. Some outfits are easy to unlock, while others will require you to do a lot of things. Each of the outfits in Red Dead Redemption will have its own benefits while Marston is wearing them.
