Ulli writes "Note that the Integrated Thermal Micrometeroid Garment (ITMG) of Al's suit was removed for post-flight analysis in late Januray 1970. The objective was to provide information on degradation of materials after an actual mission exposure.
The two lower arm sections were not disassembled. I'm not sure about both lower legs. The left lower leg (at least) was cut off for dust propagation determination at the White Sands Test Facility but, later, was re-attached to the suit.
The parts of the ITMG other than both lower arms and both lower legs with boots were not part of the flown suit."
