Grey Dress Uniforms

Did anyone else find the high-collar greys to be unappealing? I think they would have looked much sharper (and more traditional) in white, perhaps with divisional-colour cap bands.

Also, I found it odd that they seem to serve as both dress/ceremonial uniforms and garrison/service uniforms without any variation in accoutrements.

I loved them, nice and smart and professional. Also not being politically correct and putting female officers in skirts and boots.
Just wish they would explain the rank bars?

I liked the little windows so that you could see what division color they were wearing underneath.

The honour guard with the UFP flag we're wearing belts, silver/blue sashes and gloves, so I presume they were ceremonial additions to the dress uniforms.

Re: Grey Dress Uniforms

I like them because it makes the officers look very smart. The high collar was a recurring theme for dress clothes and casual clothes, so I'm thinking it is the style in the movie. I liked that the clothes were practical and not really strange, pointy or bright.

Ah well, whichever they were. I liked that little touch.

I liked the tip of the hat to TMP with the white frontshields on the admirals.

No.

I thought they looked like a combined mash-up of the best parts of the current Services uniforms.

I liked them as well. from what i could tell 1 bar is ensign 2 bars is lieutenant 3 bars are for Lieutenant Commanders and Commanders (if you note that Scotty had two bars on his dress uniform instead of 3 and both he and McCoy are both Lieutenant Commanders so it must have been a prop error). and four are for Captains.

Re: Grey Dress Uniforms

I agree it looks like:
Ensign = 1 silver bar
Lieutenant = 2 silver bars
Lieutenant commanders & commanders = 3 silver bars
Captain = 4 silver bars
Commodore = 1 gold bar
Rear admiral = 2 gold bars
Vice admiral = 3 gold bars
Admiral = 4 gold bars with 5 if Head of Starfleet.
I am pretty sure Scotty had only 2 silver bars while McCoy had 3 silver bars, so it must be a costume error?

I would agree.

Maybe my eyes were playing trick, but I would swear that Pike had 4 bars. Well, I should recheck...

Re: Grey Dress Uniforms

I wish they'd ditch the TOS uniforms. I like the original cast uniforms, and the grey dress unis are the closest thing.
