There is a uniform or suit that we see worn in TOS both by High Commissioner Ferris and, in distressed form, by Garth of Izar.

Given the similarity in terms of color and tone to the Enterprise jumpsuits, I've wondered if it might actually BE a Starfleet Uniform that was used prior to The Cage and maybe maintained by some diplomats. (There is some precedent to suggest that remote AND high ranking officers both tend to hold onto old uniforms longer.)

We've had a fair amount of time travel lately but if we do revisit personalities from the past as holograms, psychic images, cryogenics, or time travel, I think it would be pretty neat to visit a pre-Cage era where Garth of Izar was still sane, that unexplored midground between Enterprise and TOS.
