Command tunic

Flea-readers with a spare thirty-thousand dollars or so for the tip-jar should know the money will be well spent.

William Shatner second season command tunic from Star Trek. (NBC-TV, 1966-69) Captain James T. Kirk's pea green velour jersey tunic with black knit collar, gold Starfleet command insignia on the chest, and gold braid ranking stripes on each cuff. The tunic has a concealed zipper on the left shoulder, and an internal white label in the collar handwritten "Bill Shatner #2". Also identifying this as a Shatner tunic are three pleats on each side of the torso, as his were the only Star Trek tunics constructed with this special detail. Early Shatner tunics are exceedingly rare, and this is without question the finest example we've ever encountered. A fantastic and instantly-recognizable garment worn by the star of the show, this important piece of science fiction history remains in absolutely pristine condition. This is a totally original tunic with original ranking stripes - the finest Kirk tunic known to exist! $30,000 - $40,000

If you're going to buy this, then I think it's incumbent upon you to stage and webcast at least one (1) Star Trek (original series) fight scene, complete with cheesy original "fight scene" music. And don't forget to do the patented Captain Kirk "Double Axe Handle to the back of the neck" move at the end of the fight.
