I also just want to add to this thread that I really liked the black Jika-tabi coloured art and that it actually became a part of Yamataian clothing after I suggested it. I always thought they were cool and if you want a Japanese feel and something that generally stands out it fits both.

Personally I think bodysuits are the uniform master race because they won't get hooked on things even if your character is a Neko hovering at high speeds, you can slide straight into a power armor easily and you don't get much more feminine or masculine when people are baring their attributes openly. Plus they're sleek and easy to draw and you can extend a volumetric images over them since I'm pretty sure they can extend a little bit past the skin since the wiki says "close proximity to skin" for the NH-29. The one thing that sticks out to me is that some people would find them unflattering to their form but then you have people in real life complaining about baggy clothing and you've got other uniforms available in the setting. If sweat and tight outfits were an issue you could say they have special material or smart fabrics that somehow regulate heat and moisture and whatnot.

Another thing is I think simple uniforms look great like the one the Free Planets Alliance uses in Legend of the Galactic Heroes. I probably already said this a million pages ago though.
I always like the original Gundam's uniforms too for the Earth Federation.

And now you have Soresu's new material to help make bodysuits great again.

Well, I just noted the material for the first time on the duty uniform's dress pants page.

I'm frustrated about the lack of artwork for the newer uniform types. The two factors holding us up is finding an artist I can trust to give us the uniform art I need, that other future artists will be able to use for reference, and that I'm having a hard time deciding what characters to use as examples/models to show off the new threads. I suppose I could do random nekos but I'm on a limited budget here and it's more ideal to have one artwork that can do two things (wiki illustration, and character illustration).

I'm thinking of introducing something new for the Rikugun's field utility headgear. The sailor caps are cool and all, and work great for the Naval personnel, but a blue wool hat is not the most suitable garment for prolonged running around in dirty, muddy, humid, and hot planetary operating environments.

I can see why you'd want that hat to still be in use. Mehitabel or any Neko would look cute wearing one.

I just imagine her wearing that hat and ordering Tsuguka and Shiho to drop and give her twenty and the two of them smiling and doing their push-ups while purring because they're given an opportunity to work their muscles in front of everyone.

Very shiny. Yamatai going to start knighting people, perhaps, or some other similar honor?

Winter holidays are coming, after all.

I was everywhere.
Maybe it can be a service badge. Like if you serve with a pretty princess like Hanako, you get to wear that on Class A. Or if you're part of a fleet's command staff.
