Teal managed to get out of the cave… Wow, so impressive (10)

I just have a question which revolves when introducing a character thats well known, do you always have to describe what they're wearing? I always do, but i sometimes feel this could be tedious. Any opions/answers would be appreciated.
I rarely describe what they're wearing unless it's vaguely important. For instance, one species I'm developing have pretty "defined" fashions, and I like readers to know the sort of thing they tend to wear, but then I rarely write more than a sentence or so. I just let the reader make up his or her mind about clothing, since it's rarely pivotal to the plot whether they're wearing jeans and a tee-shirt or a Gucci suit.
Now also known as "Keaalu".
