At the time of TOS, the Latex Spacesuit trope had yet to be realized. If those same episodes were remade today, the crew would wear environment suits as part of their everyday uniform. (Think Lt. Ellis in Gerry Anderson's UFO.)

The live-action movie SPACE BATTLESHIP YAMATO realized the costumes seen in the original anime as everyday environment suits. With the addition of a few extra pieces, they'd be ready to board their Black Tigers or Cosmo Zeroes for a little vacuum party with Desla/Gamilas.
