Default Picard disliked 1st season uniform

Check out the TrekToday article. lol I take it this is what led to his famous tugging routine. Since it was a one-piece suit made out of Lycra and doing damage to Picard's spine, he and his chiropractor told Paramount to come up with a new suit by the second season or a lawsuit would have been given to the studio. Of course, they agreed, and this is how we got the one we now identify with for TNG.

Wow, I never noticed a difference in the suits between the first and second seasons, but it's been awhile since I've seen it.

I wonder how they managed to get him back into a first-season uniform for "All Good Things..."

And by the way, his name is Patrick Stewart, not Picard ;-)

It actually changed between seasons two and three. According to the article, Stewart says, "We actually got rid of it after the second season thanks to my chiropractor,..." - and visually in the third season episodes, you'll notice the cut of the neckline has changed. They added a subtle collar to the neckline, and allowing them to move the rank pips from the yolk up onto the collar.
