The difference in color is pretty shocking though, the command uniforms seem almost PURPLE in SD (for eps like CoC), seeing those restored to the true color is a joy.
The "true" color actually was a deep burgundy, almost purple. The brighter red that we see on-screen is due to the way the studio lights reflected off the fabric. I have a production-made uniform to verify this.

(This is similar to why the TOS command uniform appears gold, but is actually more of an avocado green)
