  4. Cause when a scarred, pasty white, shrivelled up husk of a man, black will still look sexy on you.
    by Matev Kenas

    by KR

  15. It goes great with his red lightsaber.
    by Kenpasck

  16. Hard to stay on the Atkins diet when your only choice is the death star snack bar.
    by Rbutcher

    by Darth Nima

  18. He heard that white stormtropper armor is really useless
    by Redav Htrad

  19. I think falling into a molten pit may have affected his hue.
    by Rin, Destroyer of Keyboards

  20. The Goth in him needed to be expressed
    by Vincent

  21. It attracts the sun,absorbs heat, so it reminds him of Tatooine
    by aniluvr

  22. Couldn't wear blue because he'd disappear in the bluescreen effects.
    by Darth Jester

  23. Brown would get him mistaken for a Wookiee.
    by Qizara Fett

  24. Just in case the message that he is evil isn't successfully conveyed by his menacing presence and cold, mechanical breathing

  27. Lucas to Guy In Charge of Dressing: "Come on, it's the dark side. All the bad guys gotta wear black." "No, George, that's not a good idea. White's in nowadays." "Welll, how about just one? The rest you can put in white suits."
    by Gryfft

  28. Because Billy Dee Williams "called dibs" on the powder blue cape before he got there.
    by snowdog83
