Re: Nehru Jackets?

I find the B5 version of jacket lapels interesting - a buttoned down tab! (In B5, the so-called Nehru collar is seen on shirts, not jackets.) There is more variety to that concept though than there is to clothing in Star Trek, for example. The shirt/jacket combination is close to our own current styles, but cravats/neckties are no longer used in the future - a prospect which would probably appeal to many (business) men today!

Actually, the logical progression of fashion throughout the ages shows both change and continuity, and B5 doesn't impress me as being unrealistic in that matter. Does anyone know just how much JMS had to say about appearance in his epic - or was there a costume designer who made those decisions?
