The new 52 costume is the best variation I've ever seen on the classic look. I actually like it so much that if the classic look disappeared, I wouldn't mind (the only other hero I would say this about is Thor). However, this variation I found: it's like 52 was given an extra finishing touch. Basically, I think it takes it just that much further from the spandex look. IMO, that's really what you need to do to give Superman a more modern, realistic look...and I'm glad to see the makers of Man of Steel were thinking along those lines.
Shinier than a speeding bullet.
