    90’s comic books tell me otherwise.

    90's comic books also tells you to wear colorful figure hugging spandex as armor/uniform.

    Would you wear that out into the world?

    And on just this board Enterprise uniforms were often judged one of the worst uniforms in Trek (Motion Picture normally getting the worst spot). I loved them, but lets not kid ourselves and thank that posters were very pleased with them.

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion but nothing will ever come close to as awful as the TMP uniforms in my opinion, unless some future remake of TMP involves body paint.

    they might wear wooden clogs in the future. seems practical :)

    Oh, I don't anyone was pleased with them at all, largely because they cut against Trek convention. But, as far practicality goes they did well enough. Certainly the least objectionable part of that series for my part.
    It would depend on how the body paint was applied.

    Nah, the 90's comics tell you to wear shoulder pads, straps with pouches and leather jackets. Ridiculously large weapon optional.
    Superhero costumes are made of unstable molecules, white dwarf matter and other exotic materials. Spandex is for cosplay.

    Not at all -- but if that was the case then why should this one thing be so different when pretty much everything else is basically exactly the same despite the gap of about 900 years...?

    For the avoidance of doubt, the costume designer for Disco is Gersha Phillips.

    Dunno where “Gershon” came from — I think that was autocorrect being unhelpful and I failed to spot it. :shrug:

    I like many of the design elements of the new costumes and I like the various new dress uniforms as individual concepts, I just think the mash-up of having three different styles of dress uniforms makes no sense at all and was unnecessary.

    I can just about understand the difference between the admiral and the other grey officer uniforms (and there are some consistent features between the two) but making the captains’ version so completely different to all the others was particularly unnecessary.

    One consistent design, pulling together the very best parts of all three concepts, would have been very good indeed. Oh well…

    Just because they like how it looks.

    Seriously. Not everything has to have some deep, thought-out reason. Some stuff can be objectively arbitrary and just made for the sake of aesthetics.

    Decker went for the gherkin look instead of a full....blown cucumber

    It seems odd to me that captain and flag uniforms (like Michael's and Saru's) seem to have pips on the badges, but it seems like nobody else does. They're all the same design.

    Why do the Captain & Flag Officers get Epaulettes, but everybody lower then them only has the neck collar rank badge?

    Because they're lower.
