...it was Dan Jurgens that brought Roy back from the "really really bad boomerang-and-purple-tights-like-Shaft-from-Youngblood" look and gave him the "red arrow" look in his Teen Titans book. That was inspired by the look in Kingdom Come. He didn't quite feel comfortable in the costume, and set it aside for a while. He started wearing a combination-type costume during his Arsenal Miniseries and starting adopting his bows and arrows again during the Devin Grayson's run of The New Titans. When he became part of the outsiders, he went from Brown to a Red color scheme. When he finally became Red Arrow, it was a costume that was very similar to the Dan Jurgen's Kingdom Come inspired Red Arrow costume.

This isn't a retcon. This has been coming for a while...long before Brad Metlzer. If you want to blame someone, blame Mark Waid and Alex Ross for putting the idea of "Red Arrow" into the head of all the writers that came after them.

And even if it came out of the blue with Meltzer, it still technically wouldn't be a retcon.
