What does it mean when a clothing item is “blacklisted” on GTA Online?

Blacklisted clothing items on GTA Online are items that are not wearable/saveable in a freemode session. Switching outfits, switching sessions, dying, or restarting the game will cause the outfit and the outfit slot to be removed. Though some of these items are obtainable via glitches or purchasable at the clothing store and able to be worn or temporarily saved, they are not permanent. We have no idea why certain items are blacklisted, apart from festive items only being whitelisted during certain times (ie Christmas), but this likely occurred as a way to punish modded accounts transferred from old gen consoles as most of these items were popular amongst modded outfits. Some blacklisted items are also only partially blacklisted, meaning you can save them forever and wear in missions, just not in freemode, or there are ways to make them compatible in freemode.

  1. You probably don’t know the answer to this, but why is the Sports Top, Body Armor Scarf combo only blacklisted for female characters?
