Darth Vader must stink horribly

I mean, think about it. Walking around in the same black leather outfit all the time - does he ever even bathe? Does he ever take it off? Can he even? Parts of it are parts of him! We know he takes the helmet off sometimes, but even there the closeness of the helmet and the rankness of dried spittle must be overpowering. The suit probably has some climate-regulating elements, but go ask an astronaut how rank their kit gets after a full day's work - and they're not striding around menacing people 24/7 in it. There's no in-film evidence that the Empire's technology has developed any B.O.-killing miracle fabrics. Look at Grand Moff Tarkin! His foul stench carries all throughout the Death Star, and his outfit is clearly far more breathable than Vader's.

It's kind of disgusting when you think about it.

...or maybe he's just SO evil that even the stench won't go near him.

Sometimes the simplest theory is the right one, dude. :)

But what if an even SIMPLER theory is discovered later?

Then...that one takes over as the most plausible one. Simplest theory = right. Maybe. I haven't really thought this through.

If you haven't KEEP GOING! You're on to something!!

There's a fine line between being on to something and being on something.
