    BATNINJA VEST!!!!

    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.

    Re: BATNINJA VEST!!!!

    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.

    Re: BATNINJA VEST!!!!

    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?

    Re: BATNINJA VEST!!!!

    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.

    Re: BATNINJA VEST!!!!

    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.

    Re: BATNINJA VEST!!!!

    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!
