Default S.H.A.D.O. security officers - updated

Hello chaps,
i was just wondering on what S.H.A.D.O. security officers would look like in an updated movie/series. I have loved U.F.O. since childhood but even as a child the white/cream officer outfits and the blue/white trooper outfits running around in the woods seemed a little unlikely. If you could update the uniforms for the ground troops how would you do it, would you use conventional equipment and weapons or would you scratch build an entirely new look.
I'm moving towards black modern tactical gear with perhaps Sig 226 sidearms and FN 2000 main weapons as the latter, certainly looks futuristic. Perhaps removable S.H.A.D.O. insignia to minimise identification?

For me SHADO operated in a more romantic but perhaps still potentially violent world.

The Glamour associated with the series was bondesque in nature and feeling.The colourful uniforms were all part of this alternate world.

Don't join the modern trend towards gritty dirty realism.

And if you want a hook,being effective is not enough,you have to look good as well,otherwise just have everyone in camo with dirty black stubble.
