Uniforms and costumes degrade over time.
Over 50 years, a little. In a couple of years on a hanger? No.

Paramount would have been more interested in selling them off ASAP to get even more money to produce new ones for a future film seven years down the line.
They wouldn't make enough to make a difference.

But why keep a garment that's not going to do anything for seven years except collect dust, and at the end of which time will not fit the actor anyway?

Wouldn't they prefer to sell off ill-fitting costumes rather than retain them for a cast that was consistently aging against their better judgment? Certainly Frakes of 2009 wouldn't fit in his uniform costume from 2002!
That's a problem inherent with every Star Trek uniform costume. The actors just cope with it rather than design all new uniform costumes for them.

They wouldn't need to design new costumes, just sew new versions that fit the aging actors. Certainly Jimmy Doohan didn't get forced into an ill-fitting costume from the 1960s, or even the early 1980s when he needed one, did he?

What was being discussed earlier was designing all-new costumes for everybody.

Maybe "degraded" wasn't quite the word I was looking for. "Faded," maybe. Either way, some uniform sitting on a hanger in a rack for seven years would be the last piece of clothing they'd want to show on a big screen.

I beg to differ. Did you see the ridiculous prices all that shit went for? The returns from selling some uniforms, phasers and tricorders would have given the wardrobe department more than enough of a budget to knit some new uniforms.

Except that money would not go into a budget for new uniforms, so they'd just keep the current ones.

Money is money. It all goes back into someone's budget at Paramount.

Re: How long before TNG were the Wrath Of Khan uniforms phased out?

Because money goes into a studio's general coffers, not into a special savings account for a particular movie. They determine a particular movie's budget based on how much they think the movie will cost to make and how much of a return they want to make. As a result, the less they have to spend on a movie, the better it is for them.

EDIT: I see you went back and changed your response, but my points still stand.
