What was the purpose of the green sweater Picard wore in season 5???

I would like to know why captain Picard wore that daft green sweater with a crimson tunic in season 5. Could it have been a homage to the green wrap around Captain Kirk wore in TOS?

It always looked gray to me. It just seemed an alternative captain's attire, or maybe a star demand if Stewart was complaining about the pajama jumpsuits.

I thought the sweater and jacket were pretty cool, although I do think he looked a little odd wearing it on away missions. Probably should have been kept as just a casual, shipboard outfit.

You may want to adjust the color settings on your TV, that or you're color blind. The sweater was gray and it was, indeed, supposed to be indicative of the alternative Captain's uniform that Kirk had.

It was to evoke Kirk's green alternate uniform (except it wasn't green).

I think the purpose of most sweaters is to keep the wearer warm.

It didn't seem to work very well for Picard in Darmok when he was shivering in the cold and had to get Dathon to make him a fire.

Imagine discovering you're color blind on an online bbs.

Picard's jacket was really cool. The sweater underneath... not so much. Did Beverly knit it for him, perhaps?

Yeah, because the sweater was obviously knitted from yarn.

I thought Picard's captain's jacket looked cool.

Maybe Sir Patrick had a hand in it, if so I liked the design lol..
