Suit slippers are 20 bucks from Inzer. I dumped baby powder on my thighs to help things slip up and to help with the chafe.

So can a squat suit be used for dead lifts or would I need a separate suit ? And what about briefs? Is there one that I could just use for both? Or are they setup differently? I squat a little wide but nothing crazy wide and conventional dead lift if that helps.

I hated my squat suit for deads. Didn't feel right. Always overpowered my back. Never got a dead specific suit, but be more careful back wise if you get allot of extra leg power with it. Back injuries suck.

So from your guys experience, is there any gear out there that allows you to keep your same groove or close to it? Or is it just completely different?

It's a different experience dude. I kept my normal squat stance with the single ply. Switched to sumo for deads to get a bit more out of it, actually I prefer sumo now for raw as well. Benching is completely different.

But, considering that I've seen your posting around here, and know that Rodja was weight training for years as a MMA fighter and now as a PLer, and is damn close to his elite total. I'm pretty sure that my statement is accurate.
