Hey, there! New to the fourms, so be gentle--LOL. My husband was lucky enough to own a jacket styled after the Captain Picard uniform. It was real suede and even though we got it at a discount, the original cost was $450. We worked at Star Trek: The Experience here in Vegas when were able to purchase it. Recently, he took it in to be cleaned at a place that sends their leatherwork out of state to be cleaned. Sadly, after quite time waiting to have the jacket returned, we were informed that it was "lost". After much "discussion", a settlement was reached regarding how much the cleaner should pay for replacement cost. We searched everywhere online to find a similar jacket without success.
Now, our real question is: How much would something like that be worth on a collectible level? Any guesses? Informed estimates? At this point we are just curious as we have already agreed to accept the dry cleaners offer. And we will never see a jacket like that again.
