As it's obviously a variant of the bortasqu uniform from the fleet tailor, I ran over and had a look to see if I'd missed the skirt/necklace/shoulderpads. Nope, not in game. Then I remembered there's an npc in the transporter room in the embassy wearing this uniform too. I originally thought that'd be our reward for upgrading the tailor, instead of those garbage looking robes.
There are also a couple of pieces of the Odyssey uniform missing from the Federation tailor (a longer version of the jacket and a skirt). The fleet uniforms we have are labeled as "Basic", maybe there will be a "Bortasqu' Advanced" or something in tier 5.
Personally, I'd like one those great long coats the NPCs on Qo'nos are walking around in. The reason Cryptic gives for denying us certain costume pieces is that they have have bad clipping issues with body sizes/shapes outside a certain range that NPCs fall into but player characters won't.
But that's just an excuse for being too cheap to pay an artist to fix those problems.
Before I left the game for 2 years, I initiated a thread with alot of cosmetic suggestions for the KDF both in space and ground. I put in alot of uniform examples with links, images for actual TV show, movie references. Sadly, the uniform options for the KDF are mostly the same from when I left. The difference in level of variety in uniforms between the KDF and Starfleet in STO is staggering. The competition isn't even close in space AND on the ground.
The only thing that I suggested long ago that to my pleasant surprise was actually implemented was for the option to have a hull tint of an actual, deep green for the warships. Before we had these really bright, shiny hulls which did not fit with the look of Klingon warships after TOS.
