I have to admit that I haven't read all the posts. Just too much reading for me right now, so if this has been covered before, sorry.
Anywho, I kinda liked TMP uniforms, but they sure could have been improved if they had the TWOK-type black pants, instead of the same color as the shirts.
I don't know how I feel about the shoe/pant combo. My opinion on that changes every 20 minutes. However, since many people seem to dislike the flick, it seems to me that many just look for every and any reason they can find - or work up to criticize. Had the film been more eagerly accepted by more fans, I doubt that the uniforms would have been much of an issue.
Also, I personally wasn't fond of the "belly warmer", but that's just my personal taste.
