Anovos Introduces Premium TNG Command Uniforms
By StarTrek.com Staff - May 02, 2012
If you’re planning to attend any of this year’s big events celebrating the 25th anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation, or just getting together with fellow Trek fans, you can do so in real style by slipping into one of Anovos’ brand-new Premier Line of TNG Complete Premium Uniforms.
The crème de la crème is The Next Generation Two-Piece Uniform, which features the Captain Picard Package and the Commander Riker Package. According to Anovos, these are near-perfect replicas of the original uniform as seen on screen and worn on the TNG set. “Using patterns directly from CBS/Paramount archives and Commander Riker’s hero screen-used outfit from the 3rd season, each piece was prototyped and manufactured specifically to match the pieces from the show to give the exact, full representation of the construction, build and overall look of uniform. Anovos carefully assembled the original pattern, as well as repeated the dye process multiple times to get the perfect match, and produced several prototypes that allowed this outfit to be re-created down to the last detail. From the unique padding of the upper torso, down to the foot straps, no detail was spared.”
Anovos is actually offering three variations on the Premier Line. The Captain Picard Package includes a screen-accurate replica uniform and accoutrements as worn by Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Sir Patrick Stewart), consisting of four gold rank pips and a combadge. The Commander Riker Packages features a screen-accurate replica uniform and accoutrements as worn by Commander William T. Riker (Jonathan Frakes), consisting of three gold rank pips and a combadge. And the Standard Package includes a screen-accurate replica uniform without accoutrements.
Also available are Women’s Command Uniforms, Men’s Two Piece Services Uniforms and Women’s Two Piece Services Uniforms. Anovos is taking pre-orders for the uniforms, which are expected to ship in July.
