The potential for striking gold at an op shop can be very much dependent on where that store is located. Given NASA's Kennedy Space Center is just an hour away, a pair of university students in Orlando were lucky enough to find six vintage flight suits buried in a box at a Salvation Army store that was going out of business.

You don't see Gucci mentioned on Gizmodo that often, given the Italian fashion house isn't really into props or cosplay. But to help introduce its 2017 Winter fashion campaign, the brand created a short film inspired by the original Star Trek series.
