We reach.

For the men I prefer the coveralls worn by various crewmen -- but with pockets and insignia.

For the women I prefer their regular TOS uniforms.

The TOS uniforms would have looked great in TMP, maybe with the addition of pants for the women ala the two pilots. Why did GR have to mess with success?????

When the first publicity stills were coming out with the blue uniforms looking like a baby's footed pajamas, some aggrieved kid wrote a letter to STARLOG that ended with "God Save Star Trek!"

Agreed.

And as much as I liked the improvements to their tunics in S3, there is something about the velour S1/S2 variants that to me is unbeatable.....even if inferior and somewhat uneven.

I also agree.

I think later books that stated the uniforms were an algae based material would have went beter with the velour uniforms than the polyester.

The truth for me is I couldn't tell the difference between them until I got the dvds.

Does anyone know about the TOS uniform patterns in the STAR FLEET TECHNICAL MANUAL?

Are they sourced from the William Ware Theiss patterns, or did Franz Joseph get them from somewhere else?

And are the FJ patterns any good for making uniforms that look right?

For me I always liked the velour look better than the 3rd season material.
