How to give Kelvin clothes in Sons of the Forest

Kelvin deserves a fashion upgrade.

You dont get to have many friends in the world of Sons of the Forest, so you better take good care of the ones you do meet. Kelvin is the first and most trusty Sons of the Forest companion you get to work with in the game. Its only fair that we give something back to the man for helping us through the cannibal-ridden environment.

If you didn’t know, you can actually change Sons of the Forest companions outfits throughout the game. They dont really get a vote on the topic, which gives you the freedom to dress the likes of Kelvin and Virginia any way you like. Well, not exactly. Youre still limited to the options scattered around the island. Not all clothes you find laying around are eligible to be given to just any companion, so we cant get too goofy with the clothing system.

The most difficult step toward giving Kelvin clothes in Sons of the Forest is actually finding the clothing itself. The island isnt as open to customers as your local mall, and acquiring a hoodie could easily turn into another panic-induced battle for survival. Kelvin will get a hoodie, though, so its totally worth it.
