Uniform Guide: Switzerland
This is a listing of outfits worn by Switzerland in Hetalia: Axis Powers. Changes made to them in other adaptations, such as the anime, are noted where applicable.
As a child
In the manga, Switzerland is first shown to wear a white nightshirt as a small child (with a ribbon at the neck of it). In the anime adaptation, he wears a green jacket over a lighter green shirt and olive green pants. This outfit in fact only appeared in a later flashback in the manga, when Switzerland was reminded of his friendship with Austria once again.
Switzerland later made an appearance in Prussia's diary flashbacks, where he was shown wearing a long tunic and boots.
Though he considers himself a neutral nation in wars, Switzerland's typical uniform is a double-breasted green military jacket with a black collar, cuffs, and epaulets. He wears a pair of brown trousers with matching tall boots (with white cuffs). He also wears a white beret on his head.
In an earlier concept sketch, Switzerland had breast pockets on his jacket, a cross necklace, black breeches with thigh-high lace-up boots, and a green beret. An even earlier draft (which was used for an icon of him for the site counter) showed him with light-colored pants and no beret. On the site counter icon, his jacket was revealed to be blue and the pants were colored beige.
Hidekaz Himaruya also had an alternate color scheme for the finalized uniform, with Switzerland's jacket being gray instead of green, and him having black trousers.
At world meetings, Switzerland is often shown wearing a green camouflage-print hooded jacket with a brown shoulder strap and dark pants, though he was once shown wearing a normal suit (in the unfinished prototype strip The World Conference).
Though Switzerland does not appear in the demo and is mentioned in the game as being perpetually absent from school (reflecting Switzerland's "eternal neutrality"), he appears in a concept design for the game and in the Academy Hetalia Christmas chapter of the manga.
Instead of wearing the standard blue blazer, Switzerland wears a green hooded jacket over a brown sweater vest, white dress shirt, and black tie. In keeping with the boys' uniform, his pants have a blue plaid pattern. The concept design shows that he wears plain sneakers as shoes.
In Gakuen Hetalia Portable, he wears just the tan sweater with his school uniform. He is also shown to wear a gray suit with a red tie for his formal clothes, and a blue beret, tan jacket and white shirt, and dark pants for his casual clothes.
