As TMP was set something like three years after the final events of the TV series, and because they resumed real-time-plus-centuiries-offset with TWOK, it helps to imagine TMP as a 1971 film rather than a 1979.
Except the fashions (McCoy's leisure suit and the aliens' ambassadorial robes, cuffs and sleeves) and hairstyles are very 1978.
What I meant was, for my own peace of mind re continuity, I pretend that TMP was closer to TOS than it was to TWOK in real time.

So, had they made it in '71, McCoy would have worn an Edwardian suit as a civilian?

(Spock did have a "Nehru" collar, as I recall, but those were gone by '71, I think.)
