I get so much more out of having outfits that come in six pieces rather than just one. Experimenting with dye combinations is a satisfying part of the game for me. I believe Anet used to sell armor sets with 6X (X for subunit dye slots / typically 4) dye-able slots from the Black Lion Trading Post ? I have a Trickster Oufit (I think I paid 800 Gems for it) that came in six pieces which has a total of 26 separate dye slots. There's a lot of things you can do with that kind of color potential.
