Finally...the STAR TREK™: THE NEXT GENERATION Captain Picard "Darmok" Uniform Jackets have officially been shipped out to all pre-orders! The final units were dispatched earlier this week. Words cannot express the gratitude we have to the customers who pre-ordered and stuck with us through it all to receive their upgraded full leather/suede Darmok Jackets.
We are happy to report, they are even better than all the prototypes we received and could not be more pleased with the stunning detail and fit. Here are some quick shots just as they left last week:
Note the symmetry and ‘puffiness’ that was achieved, just like the original. The ‘puff’ of the shoulder detail that is consistent in a lot of TNG and TWOK outfits, is highly technical to create and very difficult to do correctly. After working through many prototypes, we found the right amount of thickness and stitching tension to deliver this near perfect replicated look. As an added treat, once you open your package, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the smell of fresh leather!
Equally, if not MORE difficult, was the stitching and ‘puff’ needed to get the wrists looking like the original. Unlike the thickness that goes into the shoulder, we had to carefully balance the weight of fabric to achieve the look while still being a functional wrist that someone could get their hand through.
Take a look for yourself and see, we know you won’t be disappointed.
We currently have these premium leather/suede jackets in stock and available on a first come, first serve basis. If you previously missed your chance to own this classic replica, Be sure to place your order soon as we only have a limited quantity remaining!
