Well, when I find the time to change my all red cadett uniform and get me a pair of black pants then why not to ask for a shirt too? Scotty had the time to ask for a towell and got a shirt. Even Keenser got a shirt.

See! Thats what I was saying. A blue skydiving suit for Kirk because gold is for the special moment when he is a full captain. And it worked on Horatio.

As already mentioned, three different colours for the skydiving scene make it easier to distinguish the characters and although Kirk could have changed into command gold anytime, black was more suiting for his acting first officer / captain position.
So for me it was less the fanboyish wait for Kirk in gold but more a clear cut between the first adventure where everyone comes together and serves as substitute for other officers (everyone but Chekov, resp. it was not mentioned that Chekov was in for someone else) and the first official mission or rather the glimpse of that in the epilogue.

Another question would be... what other color suits are there? Green? Purple? Chartruse? Plaid? Tartan? (that would be Scotty's)

And then what do all those colors mean? Hanky codes? Anyone?

Keenser didn't join the crew in the middle of battle.
plus the movie didn't show Scotty GET a shirt.
for all we know he was wearing his Starfleet uniform under Delta Vega outfit the whole time. maybe it kept his uniform dry or Starfleet uniforms are like McFly jacket in BTTF2.
