Wow! There are some great pictures in there! Thanks for digging that up.
I think I can help.does anybody have a greeblie guide for an accurate Admiral Kirk? Sources (Rodd.comm notwithstanding) would be great too-
startrekuniformguide.com is gone. I'm planning a TWOK uniform but I don't know what all the pins on the left arm, the bands, and exact nature of the pins on the shoulder strap mean. Is there a reference guide? Can anyone point me to a breakdown somewhere. I looked for this and all I can find are references to the online game or other dead websites. I was hoping this information had been consolidated somewhere but I can't seem to find it.
Any help is appreciated.
I actually am going to make a second undershirt for myself with a store bought white turtleneck sweater, and reproducing the trapunto collar myself by hand.Is there a way I can make the white detailed turtleneck for the TWOK uniform?
Here's how I'm doing it: I'm using padding between two layers of the shirt material, with 1/2 inch stitiching to simulate the trapunto.

The Admiral's sleeve braid from The Search For Spock on seem to get progressively bigger with each "star". I saw a display someone made of all the Admiral's ranks and sleeve braids, and of course, now I can't find it to link here.I think I can help.
The left sleeve also has an "admiral's braid" just above the white service band. In Star Trek II they used the black and gold checker pattern band also found on the old BSG uniforms.
Again katarra8 supplies this and will provide enough to go around your sleeve.
Star Trek III and on they came up with a different multi-coloured admiral braid that can be seen in the screenused thread. Unfortunately I don't know if any reproductions are easily available.
Well I "think" this about covers it. Any questions don't hesitate to ask!
Is there a standard for the number of checkerboard rows there should be for each "Admiral's star"? Examples: Commodore: one row; Rear Admiral: two rows; Vice Admiral: three rows; Admiral: four rows; Fleet Admiral: five rows.
I had to dig for it but I found what I remembered Anovos had said on their Facebook page last month:As for how much Anovos' TWOKs might cost...I don't really know, but I would hazzard a guess that they would run around a grand for jacket, shirt, and pants. And if its below that price, that's a gift and every Star Trek fan should by two on general principle. Of course that wouldn't include me because I can't afford that (not with a kid coming anyway), but you see what I mean.
It doesn't sound like 1K is even possible for a TWOK replica.Nemesis we are trying to keep everything below the 1K line but the TWOK, well be prepared to spend. This is an all wool item and not only that... a wool that top grade and HARD to find... and many of the elements on this jacket is hand stitched.
That's fine, I don't mind paying for quality. I just wish I had a target date range at least so I knew how to structure my budget for the ANOVOS TWOK uniform. Does anyone know a the order launch date, give or take a few months or so?I had to dig for it but I found what I remembered Anovos had said on their Facebook page last month:

Well it only took 5 months for me to get started after saying I'd do this... Better late than never. :lolI actually am going to make a second undershirt for myself with a store bought white turtleneck sweater, and reproducing the trapunto collar myself by hand.
I've already purchased the turtleneck. So I plan on hand sewing the "ribs" in the collar, and filling them with cotton batting. I also plan to make this a "sleeveless" version. I'll post pics here once I get underway.
