In the EW article from a couple of months ago, JJ said that Kirk's black shirt was a Cadet uniform.

It doesn't matter. At this point there are so many differences that I am only considering it a Star Trek type movie...not a prequel

I would guess that the Academy uniforms are that red color we see in the trailer. The black that Kirk is wearing is probably an undershirt to the academy uniform. That would explain why JJ says he's in a cadets uniform....he's just not in full uniform.

Spoiler:


BTW, just because Chekov is in a gold shirt doesn't make his rank higher. He is probably still an ensign in those scenes.

But it will be interesting to see how it is explained. Or perhaps we'll just have to deal with the fact that JJ is going to take a few liberties here and there, and in order to get Chekov into the movie, he had to make him older.
