I suspect this is going to be a very superficial topic, but that's why I'm asking because maybe I'm not aware of certain things. So when you buy riding gear, you can often buy a matched top and bottom set. For example I've been looking at the Alpinestars Andes V2 jacket and pants. Around $475 for the set. But I already have a pretty decent Alpinestars jacket that I paid $220ish for a few years back. Hasn't been in any accidents and is super comfortable to wear. I just don't have pants that match them so I pretty much just wear whatever I have at the time. I've even worn some North Face ski pants with them during very cold winter rides and it worked out great. So is there any benefit to getting a matched top/bottom set of gear besides appearance and possibly the availability of a waistband connector? Would the specific season of riding impact this decision as well? For example winter gear is often without vents and zippers so you're pretty much just dealing with solid colors, but spring/summer gear needs vents/zippers/exhausts/etc and the matched set would reflect this design choice.
