It's an unnecessary complication and it's very prone to bugs and glitches.
It's a main reason why Marauding Boffs can't be edited, and also a major annoyance since player's regular boffs also can't wear anything off-duty. Which sucks when you want all your crew in mercenary outfits, for example (the only thing that really suits some species).
At this point of STO life this separation serves nothing. Just get rid of duty/off-duty costumes and costume slots and make it all one category.
Make all former off-duty and formal costumes cross-factional.
Call it a day and behold the simplicity.
Yes, it will lead to some clipping and strange clothing combinantions. We have both already in existence, nothing new.
Not to mention some duty costumes makes no sense as "duty" ones.
Best examples - purely fanservice thingys like Orion bikinis or Seven of Nine clothes.
