The second season may be over, but Star Trek Discovery fans have something else to look forward to as they wait for season three with the introduction of a new line of high quality jackets inspired by the show.
Volante goes Disco
Volante Design was founded by David and Willow Volante, who specialize in creating stylish streetwear inspired by sci-fi and gaming. According to Willow, the ethics and values of Trek have also inspired how they do business. They introduced their first licensed Star Trek products last year and this week they introduced a second line, inspired by Star Trek: Discovery.
The Discovery-inspired Starfleet 2256 jackets are made of heavy denim with some stretch and feature an inner pocket and a snap tab collar that can be worn open or closed. They are available in men’s and women’s cuts, with the choice of four accent colors (Command Gold, Science Silver, Operations Copper, and Section 31 Black).
The Starfleet 2256 jackets are available in a number of sizes with men’s ranging from chest size 37-55 and women’s ranging from 33-47. They also offer free sizing consultation, with a response typically within 24 hours. If you use their sizing consultation service and you’re unhappy with the fit upon receipt they will assist you in exchanging it free of charge. Willow shared that their passion is, “Getting people into things that make them feel, wow! A cut that really flatters them in the fandom they love.”
Willow shared that their guiding principles include pricing that works for their customers, and items that are high quality and made in the United States. The Volantes are involved in the process from prototype to finished product and they’re also very receptive to suggestions from their consumers. For example, a customer suggested that adding an inner pocket to their jackets could make it easier to wear the Starfleet badge without it falling off. The Volantes quickly incorporated that into their design.
The Starfleet 2256 jackets sell for $330 each and are available exclusively at the Volante website. Click here for Mens Starfleet 2256 jackets or Womens Starfleet 2256 jackets. You can also order a QMx Starfleet badge to go with your coat on their site for $14.95.
TNG jackets too
Last year, Volante Design introduced the Starfleet 2364 line inspired by Star Trek: The Next Generation. The jacket sells for $315 and is available for men and women in command red, operations gold, and science blue. Women’s sizes run 33-47, men’s sizes run 37-54. The jacket is made of heavy duty water and stain repellent denim. Order here: Mens Starfleet 2364 jacket and Womens Starfleet 2364 jacket.
