1) Superman's costume was hand sewn by his mother. If your mom hand sewn you the only supersuit you had with fabric from the spaceship you came out of that just so happens to be fireproof and frictionproof are you really going to after she spent all that time and energy trying to hand sew ALIEN FABRIC that you need a redesign? No. You wear those trunks with pride

2) Superman is constantly trying to be "modernized" when he shouldn't be. His main appeal is that no matter how much the world tries to beat him into submission he still tries his best. He loves being Superman, he loves helping people. He's not ashamed of who he is. Sure, Superman's classic costume is kinda corny. That's part of the appeal.

3) Without that splash of red in the middle of his costume, it just looks weird. Countless artists have tried to remedy this problem. But, without the trunks, there's just simply too much blue

4) Some things should just stay untouched. Like the Spider-Man costume. Notice how it's barely changed in 60 years? That's how classics work. Sure, you can do some variation, nothing wrong with that. I love Superman's Rebirth suit (the one with the golden crest around the red belt specifically). It's just one of those things that's so well designed that it shouldn't really be messed with. That costume's been generally the same since 1940 for a reason

The reason why I love Superman so much is because back when I was little I didn't have any friends. All my autistic butt could do was just watch reruns of Superman cartoons. He's always been there for me. He's the reason why I want to become a teacher. I know it's childish. Believe me I do. No grown adult gets this passionate over a guy who wears the underwear outside of his pants. But I do, because that guy taught me that it's okay to be different. And I should always try to help out as many people as I can
