    Guys,

    In many pictures of the screen Fett,he seems to have quite a tight jumpsuit on,but many here seem to make them quite baggy.What is the general feeling about how tight/loose the jumpsuit should be? on the legs in particular?

    Comfort is secondary to accuracy!!!

    The flightsuit should be form fitting. Boba had a slender look to him, mostly because of how form-fitting the flightsuit was. Same with the vest...it almost has to hug the wearer.

    I think it should just be fitted to comfort, it doesnt really matter if its tight or loose..

    I went quasi baggy from the thighs to knees, and shoulders to elbows.... everywhere else should be form fitting.

    I used stretch twill for mine so that it is pretty tight but has some give.

    I have an old West Germany tanker jump suit that will probably work perfectly, It's olive drab in color, but I can either dye it darker or keep it as is. At this point I dont think I am going to specifically make a [I]Boba Fett[I] I am going to probably make a different Mandalorian. Because they need to be comfortable (for soldiers to work) and sleek for them to fit into small spaces they arent too baggy. Look into military tanker and mechanic coveralls if you dont mind the limited scope of colors.
