Thread: Change out

    Change out

    Hi :D
    First of all, I would like to say I'm 17 years old and I'm from Brazil :D

    I was playing a game and get confused with this phrase:
    "Change out of your Leone suit. JD can't be seen speaking to you otherwise."

    The source of confusion is the phrasel verb "change out" (or "change out of"?)...

    I haven't found any helpful tip for it on web, so I've decided to try asking about it here in the forum.

    What does it mean?

    Thanks :)

    Re: Change out

    "Change out" or "change out of" usually means to remove and replace something with something else that is completely different.

    If you "change out of" your suit, you are removing your suit and putting on something completely different (like jeans and a t-shirt). If you "change" your suit, it usually means theat you are putting on a different (but similar) suit.
