Okay so I rewatched the original trilogy today and a thought occured to me - why doesn't Chewie wear clothes? Or at least pants?
You notice in, say, the Mos Eisley cantina, a lot of the creatures there are wearing clothes. Even the wolfman is wearing clothing! Now, the standard argument for Chewie not wearing clothes would be that he doesn't need them since his thick fur will help keep him warm when it gets cold, but even so you see creatures like the wolfman who also has fur but wears clothes anyway!
It would seem the galaxy has advanced to a point that it is expected of races to wear some sort clothing, and I think the reason why they do this is obvious. Why else would wolfman be wearing clothes?
One might argue that Chewie's thick fur would cover up his beepis, but what if he gets hit by a laser blast in that area and he loses all his fur? He's got no pants so he can't cover up his beepis! And what if he gets a big ol gosh dang (swear word) boner? What's he gonna do then?
Seriously, you'd think George Lucas would have thought this out a bit more. This is supposed to be a very technologically and culturally advanced galaxy and yet Chewie, and all wookies for that matter, don't wear pants.
Can anyone explain? This has ruined Star Wars for me and I find it unsettling when Chewie is sitting next to Han without wearing any gosh dang clothes
