When we think of the Gemini spacesuit, we think of it being white in color. But in fact, the Gemini suit had a detachable cover layer of white nomex fabric which covered up the actual Gemini pressure garment.

Has anyone ever seen a picture of the Gemini G3-C or G4-C pressure garment? I am curious to know if it was white, silver or a drab color (and I don't wish to confuse this with the Gemini G1-C silver suit).

In the book "Spacesuits" by Amanda Young (Smithsonian) there is a picture (3.6) of Cernan's G4-C pressure garment, and it is white. The caption states that the cover layer was used for post flight destructive testing.
That is the only thing I can find.
