STAR TREK SERIES WILLIAM SHATNER “CPT. KIRK” TUNIC
Item Details
Description
WILLIAM SHATNER “CAPT. KIRK” TUNIC FROM STAR TREK:THE ORIGINAL SERIES - (NBC-TV, 1966-1969) This is the most significant screen-worn William Shatner “Captain Kirk” Star Trek tunic to come to market in over 10 years. It is quite possibly the earliest Kirk tunic in existence. This garment has been stored in a closet ever since it was gifted to a lucky family touring the Star Trek set in the late 1960s.The tunic has been painstakingly screen matched and authenticated by experts including Gerald Gurian, Roger Romage and James Cawley. Screen matched elements include: a) tunic fabric is a match to actual examples of Star Trek: The Original Series gold velour, b) screen matched sewing lines attaching the insignia patch to the tunic, c) screen match on sewing thread construction technique, d) match on unique brand made of Japanese-made zip- per hardware, e) match on overall tunic size to Shatner including double gussets on tunic sides (unique feature to Shatner tunics) and f) match of the early style of braid. The tunic is in overall Excellent condition due to the fact that it has been stored in the dark for over 4 decades. The colors remain bright, the ornamental braid and Starfleet patch intact. The patch insignia has become delaminated at the top 2/3 exposing the second layer of similarly colored material. An experienced costume restorer could correct this if desired. Beyond rare and one of the most important pieces imaginable from the 1st season of the original Star Trek series and screen-worn by the lead character of the legendary show.
