Is it just me or did civilian clothes improve from TNG?

There were some outright silly looking outifts on TNG over the years whenever we would see civilian clothes but I thought there was maked improvement on Ds9 in this regard. some the outfits Sisko wore actually lloked like something I might wear in the present day. Jake's outfits got better as he got older. I liked that we got some variety from the Ferengi clothes instead of putting them all in those grey military uniforms we saw the Ferengi wear on TNG.

And don't forget about the Romulans going from those square shouldered monkey suits to the sleek sexy ones on DS9 and Nemesis.

Of course they did. TNG started during the 80s and back then mullets were cool. Mullets.were.cool. Think about it.

It's that kind of thinking that held us back for centuries.

Re: Is it just me or did civilian clothes improve from TNG?

Jake still had some outfits that caused me physical pain to see, but civvie clothes DID get better over the course of the show into something actually believable. This is a good point of Insurrection as well, I think. Star Trek grew out of its silly FUUUUTUUURE CLOTHES from the 80s.

^ Except the rattail...though I'm not sure how much more "contemporary" they are than the mullet.

So are skullets.

Anyway DS9 civilian clothing improved a lot. There was less rubber/spandex body-clinging suits and more natural looking materials. Besides I blame the 80's for all the wacky TNG civilian outfits.

And then you look at the Voyager civvies. Aside from some downright sexy dresses, absolutely nothing looked stylish or even comfortable to wear. Harry had some particularly horrible outfits, but they were all pretty crummy.
