When the concept of residual self image goes bad...

In the move The Matrix, Morphius talks about "residual self image" when he and Neo load themselves into the training sim program. Neo realizes that the plugs in his head and body had disappeared.

Throughout the whole movie, every time someone goes into the Matrix they are dressed in ultra cool clothes and look just sharp. What if you have a bad residual self image? Would you end up in the Matrix looking like Elton John in golf pants?

Just a thought.
