In numerous iconic iterations of The Flash as presented in the pages of DC Comics, the Fastest Man Alive is shown to don his iconic suit with a mask that includes a chinstrap to complete the look. However, the chinstrap was not featured in the fifth season of the Grant Gustin series The Flash.
Fans of Grant Gustin’s The Flash still enjoy the design of the suit even without the chinstrap in the mask as a reflection of the Barry Allen costume we see in the comics, but some fans have had their own vision of Grant Gustin donning the suit with a chinstrap present. That is certainly the case in this fan edit down below, where the suit as seen in season 5 is given the chinstrap for a more complete look:

Real or edit? Don't get me wrong I really like the Season 5 suit, but the mask really bothers me. In previous seasons, a cowl that goes all the way to the neck was used. With this season, it looks like he is wearing a cut-off cowl with the neck and chinstrap missing and not a very good looking one I might add (the ears are huge). I feel like that technology could still be applied onto this suit. And I don't like the random pieces of leather around the neck area. I understand it's used for neck mobility, but if they go back to the full cowl under the suit technique, it wouldn't be needed. Do you agree? . . . . #arrow #artist #barryallen #oliverqueen #cw#dc #digitalart #fanart #flash #kidflash#photomanipulation #photoshop #supergirl#theflash #dctv #new #art #dceu #costume #grantgustin #stephenamell #melissabenoist #new #poster #comics #superhero
Many fans of The Flash would agree that Grant Gustin really fits into the suit quite well, but some also would prefer to have him don a mask that includes the chinstrap not only because it is more comic-accurate, but also because it just makes the Scarlet Speedster suit feel more complete rather than having something missing for necessary protection and aesthetics for Barry Allen.
Do you prefer Grant Gustin donning a suit that includes a chinstrap in the mask? Perhaps you like the chinstrap-less look instead? Sound-off your thoughts in the comments!

Martin as Joe West, Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton, and Hartley Sawyer as Ralph Dibny / Elongated Man
