Why would their everyday soldiers dress in ancient armor?
Dress uniforms often have obsolete motifs.
I doubt a US Navy Officer has used a sword in a hundred years.
True, but you don't wear dress uniforms day to day and that's what I was referring to
Don't they cut cake with them at weddings?
I haven't seen the episode in awhile but I assume that if any soldier is seen wearing old-school armor, it's for the TV viewing audience.
Meaning, the TV show-within-a-show about gladiators that's broadcast to the Magna Roman public.
That was my recollection.
They could cut bread into croutons.
Even their leading Senators didn't seem to be wearing any Togas either!
Why, after 2000 years of cultural evolution would they?
The whole point was that they advanced to their "20th century" in clothing and technology. When you saw them as gladiators in the games, those were costumes representing their past. The Empire's police force were dressed like their police, with uniforms and helmets in some kind of lighter colored riot gear. These guys weren't stuck in 44 BC, so there's no reason to expect them to dress like they were.
