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

That grey sweater he had on was a glimpse of things to come. It was the beginnings of the TNG grey uniforms. He's the captain. Captain's prerogative. On a side note, I never really like that Darmok episode. T'nagra the walls fell.

He looked quite jaunty in it. That was the purpose.

Yeah, because the sweater was obviously knitted from yarn.
Space yarn of the future. Dur.

There was also a similar "Captain's variant" of the First Contact uniforms, with a waistcoat instead of full jacket, that both Picard and Sisko were seen wearing a couple of times.

^Or a cultural bias. Some cultures may see certain shades of colors differently due to cultural reasons.

I never liked that uniform. I'm glad we didn't see too much of it.
