Wolverine is no superhero in Aronofsky's screenplay. He's a killer, a broken man, an animal. Not a superhero.
There really is no other way to justify the costume.
Also, unlike Cap's costume in the USO, this costume actually serves a purpose - to give Wolverine & Mariko that moment of truth where they lock eyes & she instantly realizes what's happened to the man she loves after he was torn from her life.
