I know that it is cool to hate whatever everyone else hates. Kind of like Nickelback (but I like them, so suck on that, lol)
 
But what is the real reason why does this costumes get the sh!t end of the stick?

Because his brown and yellow looks more like a feline animal, maybe?

I don't know what's so crap about the blue and yellow outfit, but I think that outfit is awesome. The brown and yellow is cool too

They have yet to make a costume closely resembling this one in the movies, pretty sad. I think it is good.

Cause yellow and blue looks a bit ridiculous? Especially compared to the brown and orange or the black and gray.

I grew up with the yellow and blue  and  the brown costume.    I've always liked both but I have to say I like the x-force costume the best.  I never liked Nickel Back way back when they were unpop.   Watered down rock or wanna be metal.

I grew up watching the 90's cartoon so to me the yellow/blue "astonishing" costume is my favorite.

I think it's pretty much up to the artists whether any of Wolverine's outfits look awesome beyond comprehension or downright embarassing. Adam Kubert or Marc Silvestri for an example could make Wolverine look feral and cool even if he'd had to draw him wearing ha pink ballet suit. John Bryne's Wolverine looked also very impressive. John Romita Jr. way of illustrating his astonishing never appealed to me, though.
 I like the brown and tan the best, ewspecially if the brown parts are colored a little bit reddish. The colors of Daken's brown and tan costume in the Siege arc were a bit weird, though. I think his costume was a bit too bright, making him look like the inevitable Caramell and Nougat Man XD 
 
@X-93: 
Yupp, black and grey is cool. Too bad it's getting a bit overused among all the darker, grittier characters.

The blue and yellow gets so much flak cause its everywhere!   At the time he got really popular and is in every other book on every other page, thats what he was usually wearing.

the yellow and blues are pretty awesome and are iconic in their own right but the brown and tan fit his character better

Even though it makes me think of the Michigan Wolverines, who I'm not a fan of, I grew up with the blue and yellow outfit, the brown and yellow one just looks wrong to me.

 I actually think it looks awesome. Not sure why people don't like it.    The brown and yellow one is awesome too.

Because the colors are too bright and doesn't go with his character I like the costume he wears in X-Force better

Especially since a lot of the time he has no idea who he himself is. Also since most people know who he is, in and out of costume.

I just prefer street clothes on characters usually. Unless it works, and Wolverine's spandex doesn't work for me.

I don't think everybody hates it. I personally don't think it suits the character; because wolverines aren't blue or black and yellow. The reason he has a blue/black and yellow costume at all is because the designer, John Romita Sr., had no idea what a wolverine looks like. He looked it up in the encyclopedia and saw a description that said "catlike carnivore." Hence, the "catlike" costume. Full story here.

Anyway, Jim Lee took credit for bringing the costume back, so I blame him.

Wolverine's best outfit. I wish it where Wolverine's default outfit in Ultimate Alliance instead of his street clothes.

I love the yellow and blue. When I first read X-Men he had his brown and tan but then I found out about his first outfit and I have liked it more since that day.

I must say that I understand the gripe thou Canary yellow and congratulations you just had a boy blue are not the most feral colors in the crayon box.

I like the blue and yellow one, I just like the yellow and brown one and the black and grey ones better. It seems like bright blue and yellow would make you a target in the battlefield (though Logan may enjoy that aspect of the color scheme, come to think of it), and like others have said, a wolverine is not blue or yellow, so it's just kind of an odd color scheme to go with.
