Found this published description of the Rebel Fleet Trooper costume. Has some interesting background information.

Quote:
The Rebel Alliance Commanders were aware of the advantages to be gained by having its soldiers in uniform. It created a visual association giving each trooper the feeling they were part of something greater. It engendered a pride in oneself and one's fellow troopers and created unity and cooperation in battle. For the Alliance, however the lack of resources meant that this wasn't always possible. The fact that the rebels included species of hugely varying physical forms only heightened these difficulties.

The uniform of the fleet troopers of the Royal House of Alderaan became common across the Alliance as it was relatively simple grey trousers, a light blue shirt and a black waistcoat, black boots with non-slip soles, and a gun belt with holster. The helmet was by far the most recognizeable element, as it tended to dominate the wearer. This uniform was designed to be comfortable to wear around the ship. Unlike stormtrooper aromor, it was not designed for combat. The helmet was the only piece of armor. This all reflected the Alderaanian commitment to peace rather than war.
