    Feb 27, 2006, 9:24 PM - BATNINJA VEST!!!! #1

    I just wanted to give my thanks to BATNINJA for my new vest he did for me!!

    It is truly the best vest I have ever had and the material he used is second to none.

    you may notice he did a custom job on the velcro to fit my MAN of WAR armor.

    The vests were $75 apiece, using the TDH-approved material. I'm currently out of this fabric, and I'm looking for a close match until another run is made.

    The fabric is called 'tackle twill', and is used to put numbers and players' names on sports jerseys. More info can be found here:

    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showt...=vest+material

    Unfortunately, this fabric cannot be bought 'off the shelf', and therefore had to be special-ordered (even the color is considered a 'special' color, I think). I've E-mailed BobaFettish, who has been the contact for fabric orders in the past. Hopefully, he'll put up a new fabric order here soon, as I do not have the contact info.

    Batnija,

    Do you make these in basic sizes or do you take measurements from people?

    I have three basic sizes: M (38-40), L (42-44), and XL (46-48 ). In other words, if you wear a Large T-shirt, then a Large vest should fit you fine. I’m using 1 ½” Velcro for the closure, so there is plenty of ‘wiggle’ room for individual size adjustment.

    I do not add strap-holes or Velcro to the vest, as many people have different preferred attachment methods. These alterations can be done by most any local seamstress or alterations shop.

    HOLY ****E!!!!! That's fantastic!!!!

    Oh Boba Fettish...I think it's time for another run of this material.

    My vest is the only thing I think I need to upgrade to the screen accurate material.

    Congrats on such a stunning peice.

    Batninja, do you make ESB vests also? Because I am pretty sure the vest material for the ESB is quite different from the ROTJ material. The ESB doesn't have that "shine" to it, like the ROTJ. Am I mistaking, or is this true? But anyhow, do you make ESB vests? Thanks.

    I'm not too familiar with the ESB version. Maybe someone with some experience can chime in here, though.

    I've received several PMs from people who either have some TDH material or material of their own, who want a vest. If you would like, I can sew these for you at $50 a vest (shipping included), if you send me your material.

    PM me for details!
