Agreed. I wonder if there was a real-world reason for it?
Yes, to prevent his Vulcan makeup rubbing on the collar of his uniform. Easier to replace the black collar every few takes than to swap shirts.

Check out his uniform in "Where No Man Has Gone Before". He has Velcro on both sides - unlike all other cast members - so that between takes the collar could be loosened and prevent the makeup rubbing.
Nice. About what I thought. Thanks! IIRC, in 'The Corbomite Maneuver' his called was also different-looking from the rest. I think it was taller and had a zipper on the side.
