This thread is old, but for future reference, that's not piping but binding. Piping is like what you see on pajamas. Looks like piping on a cake, and it protrudes from between two layers of cloth.

The uniform of the 23rd century has become the uniform of the recent college grad.Naturally the most CBD Trek uniforms are the red numbers from the original crew's movies:Admiral Kirk shows some sprezz:Admiral Kirk before posting in the CBD thread:
I'm pretty sure that's a mark XI tricorder.Starfleet took a big step back when it returned to using clumsy pockets instead of having the hardwear stick magically to the equipment belt. I guess Velcro is passe in the 24th century.
