UPDATED AUGUST 21 2009
I thought I'd do this (covering the uniforms and jackets the teams wore when not transformed), this has been discussed by many many fans for many many years. In Super Sentai, since Goranger, the team always wore the same clothes most of the time, sometimes they would alternate. They started wearing ranger-colors in Denjiman and Dynaman, this continued on for years. They first wore uniforms in Flashman and then in Zyuranger. It was hard finding these pictures!!!!
They all wore ranger-color uniforms based on their tribes and carried their Dino Buckles on their belts. As we know, MMPR didn't wear uniforms, just ranger-color clothes. Dairanger had no team jackets, they wore the same clothes for a while but changed every so often.
Kakuranger (1994) / Ninja Rangers and Aquitar Rangers (1995)
The Kakuranger were ninjas and had ninja uniforms, all black except for White, with ranger-colored scarfs and belts. The MMPR had ranger-color uniforms with white belts and arm and leg cuffs that had yellow diamonds. White had a black belt and black diamonds. The Alien Rangers wore black long-sleeve shirts and pants with grey cuffs and their ranger-color shirts underneath. They wore gold belts and White wore a grey sash over her.
Ohranger wore teal uniforms and Carranger just wore the same clothes for the series, they switched half-way. As we know, Zeo and Turbo had no uniforms.
Megaranger (1997) / Power Rangers in Space (1998)
The five Megaranger were high school students, so they wore high school uniforms. Mega Silver wore regular civilian clothes, mostly white. While the Rangers in Space were high school students, they mostly wore special uniforms when they were in the Astro Megaship and other planets. They wore grey jackets and pants and a long-sleeve ranger-color shirt underneath. The Silver Ranger wore black with a silver undershirt. They are the first Power Ranger team to wear uniforms. In one episode, Karone got a similar outfit but it was a dark greenish jumpsuit with a purple shirt underneath.
Gingaman (1998) / Lost Galaxy (1999)
Like Zyuranger, the Gingaman had ranger-color tribe outfits. BullBlack wore red and black. As for Lost Galaxy, Mike, Kai, and Kendrix wore GSA uniforms that were blue and grey for men and rose and grey for women. Domon wore a green mechanic jumpsuit. Maya wore the same yellow tribe outfit and brown go-go boots the whole year and the actress always complained. Leo got to mix it up, but he wore red. This was the year when they started to wear the same clothes always. Karone just wore a black leather outfit.
Go Go Five (1999) / Lightspeed Rescue (2000)
The siblings wore orange jackets with a ranger-color mark with the insignia on their left labels. Lightspeed wore red and black jackets with ranger symbols on their shoulders just like GoGoV. GoGoV got to change their clothes underneath every so often but Lightspeed never did, except for Joel a couple of times. Ryan wore all black and had a jacket just like the others and in the same colors.
Gaoranger (2001) / Wild Force (2002)
The five Gaoranger had black jackets with ranger color, Yellow and Red had black pants, Black had black shorts, Blue had black cargo pants, and White had a black skirt. Silver had a grey and blue jacket and black pants. While Wild Force had ranger-color jackets and Red, Yellow and Black had ranger-color shirts underneath. Blue had a orange shirt underneath and White had a light pink shirt underneath. Lunar Wolf had a similar color jacket to Gao Silver, it was a blue-ish grey with silver. White had black skirt, Yellow and Lunar Wolf had black pants, Blue and Black had khaki pants. They all had their animal and nickname on their jackets.
Hurricanger (2002) / Ninja Storm (2003)
The uniforms were slightly similar but not completely. The Hurricanger outfits had mesh and the jackets looked more like jackets. The Wind Ranger Jackets had belts. Hurricane Blue had a skirt, while Blue Wind Ranger had pants. The Gouraijer had leather jackets and leather black pants. The Thunder Ranger had similar outfits to the Wind Rangers. Green Samurai Ranger had a vest-like jacket top with green trim. Shurikenger had no outfit since he had no one human form. The Hurricanger jackets were the first to be avaliable for sale for both adults and children.
Dino Thunder, like MMPR, had no uniforms, they just wore ranger-color clothes, different clothes. While in Abaranger, they did wear ranger jackets and the same pants all the time. Abare Killer wore a long white jacket and white pants and a black dress shirt. The four Abaranger's jackets had their dinosaur on it with their Ranger-color and black.
Dekaranger (2004) / Power Rangers SPD (2005)
The stars and ranger-colors on Dekaranger's jackets were on the left of their jackets. The B-Squad's ranger-colors are on the right side of their jackets. The Dekaranger uniforms were dark navy and SPD's uniforms were grey. You can't tell by the picture above but the Dekaranger had pants with three ranger-color lines are each pant and SPD in grey down the left leg. Pink and Yellow had two stripes on their skirts and a little SPD scrolling downward. They wore white shirts underneath. The B-Squad wore ranger-colored shirts under their jackets. The B-Squad girls wore grey skirts over their pants, while the Deka girls wore only skirts. Deka Break wore a white uniform with navy star and stripes. Deka Bright wore a similar uniform, with white and brighter shade of blue and a skirt and black tights underneath. Swan wore her Deka Swan uniform under a white lab coat, Kat wore no uniform, different clothes. DekaGold wore a red, black and white coat-like uniform with black tights and white boots.
Many thought the A-Squad SPD uniforms were like the Dekaranger uniforms but they don't, they have no stars and the ranger-colors are on their right side. They are dark navy color jump-suit a bit similar to the Dekaranger color but not completely. They did wear white shirts underneath like the Dekaranger.
Magiranger (2005) / Power Rangers Mystic Force (2006)
I couldn't find a better picture of the Magiranger uniforms. The main five had ranger-color jackets with flannel-like patches, this is connected with Wicca tradition. The back of their jackets had a swoop wing-like thingy. The boys wore black pants, jeans and leather pants. The girls wore skirts, their symbols were on different parts of the pants and skirt, for example Yellow had his on his pant cuff. As for Magi Shine, his whole outfit was navy and wore a gold dress shirt under his jacket. Their father wore a cloak and special outfit. Their mother wore all white, sometimes different colors, mostly pastels. As for Mystic Force, the main 5 wore capes, black pants and white shirts under leather vests. Their symbols were also in different spots on their uniforms. Solaris Knight wore a patched up vest over a shirt and special pants with the colors bronze, navy, red and yellow. Udonna wore all in white and Leanbow wore a khaki-colored uniform similar to Daggeron's.
Boukenger (2006) / Power Rangers Operaiton Overdrive (2007)
The Boukenger had khaki-colored jackets with ranger-colors and the inside was camouflage in their ranger color. The girls had brown skirts, Red had black pants, Black had blue jeans and Blue had black leather pants. Silver had black jeans and his jacket was completely silver with some black and orange. OO had black jacket and pants with ranger-color trim. Mercury had orange lines and two silver stripes on the front.
Gekiranger (2007) / Jungle Fury (2008)
Red, Blue and Yellow had similar jackets, they were Chinese-inspired. They also had similar shoes. Red and Blue had similar black pants with their ranger-color on their pants cuffs through a triangle. Yellow had a black skirt with yellow triangle cuff. Violet had a black and violet jacket similar to the Gouraijer and black jeans. Chopper had a nylon white/orange/black wind-breaker with hood and white and orange nylon pants. As for Jungle Fury, the main tree had similar jackets, they all wore black pants, Yellow wore a black skirt. Wolf Ranger had a similar jacket but it was a vest and he wore a black long-sleeve shirt underneath and black pants. I was not fond of the sleeveless vest (did not like the pop-out vest sleeve), I would have liked at least a short-sleeve jacket or full-out jacket. Rhino Ranger wore a white/black/orange jacket and black pants.
Go-Onger (2008) / RPM (2009)
The main five Go-Onger had black and ranger-color jackets with Go-Onger on the sides and their nickname, Engine catchphrase and Engine symbol on them. The boys wore ranger-colored shoes and black pants. Yellow wore black boots with yellow shoelaces and a black skirt with yellow trim. The RPM team wear black leather jackets with their ranger-color stripes on their arms and Zord symbol on their backs with Ranger-color shirts underneath. The Go-On Wings wear aviator jackets in their colors and red interior. Gold had black aviator pants and boots; Silver had a black skirt with red belt and black boots. They had their Engine's names on their jackets and an animal representing their Engine: Chicken and Tiger. RPM Gold and Silver got generic tracksuits.
Shinkenger is the first show to not have common jackets for all five. Although the boys do have jackets that have their names on it and Shinkenger name on it and avaliable for sale.
