Explorers on The Moon: Captain Haddock, quick-change artist?

The following is separated from this thread for clarity:

Another error is a lot simpler: On page 19 of "Explorers on the Moon", Haddock and the Thompsons have an argument and the Thompsons demand an apology for Haddock's insult. In panel 7, in which Haddock is looking at Calculus with his arms crossed, he is suddenly wearing the blue overall-like outfit which he wore at the Centre - but in the next panel he is again wearing his normal clothes.

No just Haddock, actually. I'm sure everyone has noticed how in on page 30 of "Cigars", Tintin suddenly switches from his military uniform to his civilian clothes. He certainly could not have been wearing those plus-fours under his soldiers' trousers and the soldiers' shirts are a light grey rather than bright yellow.

Why would the Thompsons have obtained his original clothes for him to put on? And would anyone have wasted time getting changed when a mob of angry soldiers are on their way?
