They were stupid.
I also noticed a wardrobe malfunction in the episode "The Maquis" I believe. When Dukat is being escorrted throguh the promenade, you can see how cheap and flimsy the Cardassian uniform is, and the whole side has detatched and is flopping around helplessly
I noticed that, too. Those uniforms looked
really good, though, and knowing how expensive costumes can be, I can easily let it slide.
The brown uniforms from "The Wounded," though, were pretty bad--they reminded me of things you'd see on pre-hiatus Dr. Who. Cardassian make-up, however, is perhaps the all-time best make-up design to come out of Modern Trek.
