We had conversations about this in car groups. One thing we discussed was the fact that we would NOT be perfect in the New System. We would be in a state of being raised to perfection until the 1000 years was up. After that time, who knew? But also during the 1000 years, others would be waking up (resurrecting) and they would be starting out where they left off, way off perfection, some just hearing about Jehovah for the first time. So, no it would not be a naked paradise.
Then, like Blondie said, the earth is changed weather-wise. God's purpose had to do with man populating the earth and living forever, not necessarily living naked forever. So even if man wore clothes, that would not be going against his original purpose. I would guess the canopies would have to be restored in order for the weather to permit nakedness worldwide.
Another thing is that men and women love clothing. And I sure would not appreciate naked people sitting all over my furniture. Unless women are ready to go in hiding for 7 days and sit in a tent with hay on the floor, it would not be very appealing to go naked during her cycle.

Oooh, what a picture that conjures up, simplesally. I always figured that Eve did not have her cycle until after the fall. For a perfect God, that whole process was poorly planned IMO. (even if its evolutionary)
This is a great question. I like it because it makes you think about other aspects of this "New System" and makes you realize that the WT doesn't really know anything - they just make it up as they go.
If we all wear clothes, oh excuse me, if they all wear clothes, where will these clothes come from. 1000 years wearing the same outfit - peeeU. Will their be dress shops? factories? pollution - synthetics? my my, better not look too far ahead....toilet paper? waste management? fuel?
Just like Undercover, I can remember this being a talking point in my distant youth. I was told by the grown ups that we would all be naked and live on nuts and fruit plucked from the trees.
The more you realise just how plain daft the whole concept of the New World really is . Of course we were always told not to speculate or waste time in "Foolish and idle questions"... Mind you , they definately said in print that we would speak Hebrew.
