And if this vehicle is an escape pod, I doubt he had time to change his uniform.

Half done up uniform? Do you have a movie or picture to reference?
The black shirt Kirk has on is standard for an academy cadet, or like someone said, it very well could be an away mission attire. Kirk undoes his uniform in the movies, especially TWOK because I thought he was hot. Thats what I always thought.

I'm sure lots of folks thought Kirk was hot. (sorry I had to)

Remember though, we have no idea as the to chronology of these 2 pics of Kirk in Black. Is he just returning from the "pod" or is he on his way off the ship. Then again, it seems his hand is not injured in the "group shot" so maybe he does go through a significant portion of the movie not wearing gold.

Note: Kirk's black shirt bears the emblem, which makes it more likely his uniform not an undershirt which is less like to have the emblem on it.

yeah...the long sleeves and the emblem sort of cement it as his uniform.

Not that I'm complaining! Pine looks fine in black.

Default it's only my opinion but...

The black looks cool and may be similar to a grading system for trainee Captains before moving to the gold.
