Can anyone tell me if there's a specific reason why Zap is always going on about velour, other than it being innately funny? Like if there's a bit of trivia behind it, or something I missed from the first series

Just to make him even more sleazy I guess.

There's nothing like the feel of a "velour" uniform rubbing round your crotch   mmmmm.....  flirt


Guess he just loves that feeling you only get from velour clothes.

BTW, Welcome to PEEL.  smile

Probably because you can say 'velour' in a way which is erotic. EROTIC.

It's because the uniforms on the original Star Trek were made of velour.

Because velour is a knock-off of velvet...

Wait a minute, this thread isn't about VF at all! What a let-down.

I could be wrong, but velour isn't exactly a manly fabric and Zapp consider himself quite the ladies man, so for him to wear velour... He should've worn something made out of Rockwool, now there's a shirt with some chesthair.

Well he wears velour because it makes him feel sexy, but from its use on this shows and others it has more of a reputation of being sort of a pervy fabric or something you'd wrap your couch in. Just another demonstration of Zapp's hilarious combination of haughtiness, overcompensation and cluelessness. And how can you not love a pantsless outfit? Specially on Kif..

Buchmeister, I concur. I might try it on the next man I meet.
Thanks for the welcome nerdilingus!
Also, Action Jackson I'm sorry to disagree here, but the original uniforms look more like a cotton/lycra blend. Less sexy, but who needs to wear sexy clothes when you're William Shatner?

Velour might not be manly now but it might be in a thousand years.

I too am disappointed that this thread wasn't about the lovely VF  cry  wink

You will still be wrong,  do the research I've known this since the seventies. :/

I find it incredibly disturbing that someone sized XXXL has the opportunity for wearing velour.
I've learnt something, but at the same time feel dirty :/

Kif didn't exactly seem thrilled about wearing velour. "I suppose captain, but I'm not as big a fan of [dripping with contempt]velour[/dwc] as you are."For some the stigma lingers, then again Zapp is stupid so he probably got it all wrong. "Baby, wait! You didn't show me your surprise!"
