How do the TMP look naval? Do you mean like navy crackerjack enlisted unis?
The colors. Same range as used by the USN for officers' work uniforms in WW2:

Note 9, 10, 11 and 14.

The rank braid is a simplification of the naval system, and the use of those epaulettes goes back to the USN in the 19th century.
I see your point now.
