According to the Smash Bros. Dojo, Wario will have his classic anti-Mario apparel available as an alternate outfit in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.  Tapping X or Y on the character select screen normally cycles between the six color schemes available for each character; if you chose Wario, however, the seventh tap switches from his Wario Ware outfit to the classic anti-plumber ensemble.

According to Sakurai, "Wario alone is special" as far as this alternate costume business goes, but I'm a bit suspicious that we might see alternate outfits for a few other characters.  Peach had a Daisy costume available in Super Smash Bros. Melee, but the costume change was conspicuously absent in the E for All Brawl demo; the Daisy color scheme was present, but no texture/costume change occurred.  I wouldn't be surprised if a Dr. Mario costume was available for Mario as well, especially considering Sakurai's comments about some Melee fighters being absent this time around.
