tri clothing

I have not done a tri yet but I am training. My bike jersey is wearing out and the shorts are way old. I run in baggy shorts with no shirt, and I swim in normal at the beach swim trunks.

I need to buy clothing and I need suggestions. I was thinking a bib with a tight fiting bike jersey to do everything however, I am not sure how it would do in the swim. What is everyone's thought and what does everyone wear?

I think the best choice is the tri suit... Has thinner bike shorts that you can easily run and swim in, and a tight sleeveless top (also can be used in all 3 events). They have some one-piece suits but I'm against them because it's hard to pee if you need too.

Is there anywhere to get cool designs on the tri suits. It's not a must but, I have looked around and they are all plain colors no team names or brand logo's or anything.
