Resident Evil

In the original Resident Evil, Chris wears the standard uniform of S.T.A.R.S. His clothing consists of a white T-shirt underneath a green Vietnam War era M69 flak vest (the vest features a knife case at the left breast), gray pants, holster, knee-pads and black combat boots. The uniform did not show any change in the remake of the game and was also used in the "Mansion Incident" scenario, from Umbrella Chronicles. Although in Resident Evil 5, Chris wears this outfit, as an extra costume, with a minor alteration. Instead of the original white T-shirt, Chris now wears a white button down dress shirt, with the sleeves rolled up into small cuffs. In the FMV scenes and the ending, the color of his pants is blue and his white shirt is covered in dirt and it was not seen without the green flak vest. In Jill's scenario of both the original version and the REmake, it is implied that Wesker somehow managed to capture him and lock him up in the prison of the Arklay Laboratory around the time Jill and Barry went to investigate the Tea Room for a gunshot.
