I'm kinda liking this for a TOS era MACO field uniform....

Or perhaps this one in various color options:

My current costuming criteria is it has to be affordable, ready-made (preferably) at least passable as a military style uniform in the TOS era, and allow for patches to be sewn onto the shoulder-sleeves.

It needs to be reminiscent of a Enterprise MACO but it doesn't have to be a perfect match. I do like these because the cut of the sleeves is pretty close to a TOS uniform shirt, yet it is still a military shirt.

What do you guys think?

I recommend the solid black or solid green as that will go better with the style of TOS uniforms. If there was any way to take those solid greens and make black collars, it actually would work really well, and even look like you meant to do that. (And you could make a cool subdued version of the Saladin's patch which would be black with dull brown.

No matter what, Camo will be too jarring.

I was actually thinking along the same lines. :)

Also, for those of us who care, that particular camo pattern screams 1980s.

Digital camo? 80s? Really? Weird. :)

Just a reminder of the 'canon' MACO uniforms in Enterprise, (and Star Trek V?) for reference. :)

Well, I guess I was really thinking of the top one - which might be digital but is clearly based on the hunter's camo patterns used in 80's movies to simulate Soviet uniforms.

I found some more MACO uniform possibilities.
