Sorry to be late to the thread! Mrs. TK409 is available to sew neckseals using your fabric for $25 shipped.
paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org
Take your ACTUAL neck measurement (around the adam's apple) she adds a bit for comfort.
I've received questions about fit - these are meant to fit comfortably snug. See photos below.
You can send your material to

Payment sent for 3 yards of the Vest material. Please send materials to Batninja. thanks.
Payment sent! 2.5 yards.
Please sign me up for 2.5 yards. I'll send payment today. Thanks!
Just paid for 1 yard of fabric, could you ship it to Chris Barlet? I PMed you the address and info. Thanks
That's great news Chris. I was going to contact you about making a neckseal out of my left over material.
Will 1/2 a yard be enough? It's estimated that 2 yards is enough to make a vest with 1/2 left for a neckseal. I was just looking to confirm.
1/2 a yard should be more than enough for a neckseal. If anyone is wanting to have their excess material sent to TK409 for neckseals, keep in mind that I have to pay to ship it to him in addition to shipping the rest to batninja. Basically I am saying I can't ship it to both for the same cost as one person. My recommendation is that I send all the fabric to batninja (if that is who you requested that it goes to) and allow him to ship the rest to TK409. That way you can pay him the additional amount for S&H.
Evan4218, no problem shipping your 1/2 yard to Chris for you.

Fellas, I got to see, firsthand, Gator Fett's TK-409 made neck seal today.
It is SWEET!
When Batninja is done doing my vest I'm having Mrs. TK409 do the neckseal!
I already own one and they are very comfy as well
Bump for the last day!
Don't miss the boat or you'll have to wait another year!
Payment sent. (Finally)

Holy cow!!! 90 yards have been ordered. That is going to be one (or two) heavy bolt(s) of fabric. I will post an update when it arrives and when orders have been shipped.
My fingers hurt already.
Folks, I will start another thread for 'vest sewing services' payments.
It's great to see that you guys are getting together and stepping up to do this for people, this IS the way it should be in every Community.
Thanks again Bobafettish and Batninja
I agree, and you're welcome.
THANKS AGAIN to BobaFettish and Batninja for helping make it one step closer to completion Takemetoyourfett
There definitly 2 cool cats!
Yes indeed, thanks all around! Oh and I forgot to tell you, Please do ship my material to batninja. I think Im #13 on your list. Thanks
Yeah, Thanks again! :thumbupBobaFettish said:
****, how did I miss this?
It seems some members got alittle extra, maybe you can sweet-talk them into selling you some.patiam69 said:
Got vest material? I DO, and so does batninja!!!
The bolts of material arrived and the measuring process has begun. I will post updates as each order is shipped out.
Man... I missed this update!BobaFettish said:
However... I see my material has been shipped to BatNinja!
BN's house has to be overflowing with material!!
...like you wouldn't believe....Ripcode said:
I've got the material for the first few cut, and hope to get 'em sewn up this weekend.
batninja said:BATNINJA.. YOU ARE FREAKIN AWESOME!!
I just received my Batninja vest through Ripcode. I can't tell you the unbelievable craftsmanship and great look/feel of this vest. It looks so good, it makes the rest of my suit look bad. I can't hardly bring myself to weather it because it is sooooo perfect! I urge everyone to get a Batninja vest with this material, it is so movie accurate!
You have to. Otherwise Zeever Fett will make fun of you for being too shiny....MandalorFett said:
When will we be getting the material?
Yeah, he might!!!Ripcode said:
I pretty much have it all divided up with what is going where, but my 'real' job hasn't gotten me home early enough this week to get to the post office before it closes. At the latest, I will ship the rest out on Saturday. Watch for your shipping status to change in my first post of this thread, followed by an email with the tracking number. Priority Mail normally takes three days, so hopefully everyone will have theirs by Wednesday.
A big Thank You for doing this my man! :thumbup
YEAH! seriously, thank-youRipcode said:
HERE HERE !!!! and another for Batninjapennywise said:
All I ask is that if we ever run into each other at a convention and you are wearing your Fett, introduce yourself. Of course if you wanted to buy me a drink, too, I wouldn't decline.
You got it!BobaFettish said:
or two?BobaFettish said:
Just wanted to let you know the fabric arrived today. I almost tripped over it on my front porch when I opened the door. LOL
Thanks so much!!!!
You should have seen the original rolls, Christi!
From the looks of the tracking reports, several of you should have received your fabric today. The rest should be arriving soon.
Got my fabric today! Bobafettish, thanks a lot for doing this run!
It looks as though all the orders I sent have been received, including all the material shipped to batninja. I look forward to seeing a lot of kick *** vests at cons this summer.
I'm fairly new here and also inexperienced in building/creating movie quality armor etc-which is the look I'm after btw...I'm not going to be doing a Boba or Jango, I'll be doing a custom Mandalorian and will be mixing and matching armor all over the place. My question is, where would I find black heavy duty fabric that would be suitable for making a vest to hold the extra weight of fiberglass chest/back armor down to the lower back...I also wanted to try something I saw a photo of. The vest had two "shoulder pads" which the shoulder armor snaps onto. It gave the armor a more broad shouldered, more intimidating position and I'd like to try that with my vest also. Any thoughts?
I'm starting a Boba Fett and I would like to order your fabric and have it shipped to "batninja". How much does it cost including the fabric and the service by batninja?
Who should I send my measurements to?
Also do you have the exact measurements for "Jeremy Bulloch" sized accurate Boba Fett?
The "run" for the material is done and gone.x-mart said:
Your best bet would be to put out a Wanted to Buy ad in the Cargo Hold. Maybe someone will have extra material to spare.
Does this material go by a name ? It looks like a good matchup, and knowing what it is called would make it easier to find
It's called tackletwill, used for lettering on sports jerseys. There have several attempts to find retail outlets for the material, with no luck. If you do find one, please share the information! Good luck!
Thanks !!batninja said:
They must sell it somewhere, so it shouldn't be too difficult to find. I'll be sure to let ya all when I find some
Good luckSheriff Roscoe said:
No luck so far, any pointers in the right direction appreceated
Accurate material for sale in this thread! :Sheriff Roscoe said:
Appreciate the thought, thanks but need more than three yards.
A supplyer or manufacturer would be ideal
Well, the problem is that you're a major sports-jersey manufacturer (think Adidas, Nike, Russell), you're not going to find a source willing to sell just a few yards. The minimum order for the bulk sale was FIFTY yards (@ $16 a yard).
So unless you're willing to throw down a few hundred bucks, you're not going to find this stuff on the open market. Like I mentioned, a few of us have already tried the method you're attempting, with no success.
I dont have a problem ordering fifty yards, thats quite close to what I wanted anyway
OOOOOHHHH Big G! Cool, I'm sure you can get a new list going if your serious Like Batninja was sayn they only want volume, but yeah, I have one of these vest and I have to say it is by far the best I've seen yet (and I've seen quite a few) However your new, so what reassurance do people have that your a honest resource? (just a question)Sheriff Roscoe said:
If someone starts a new list for vest material I would be intersted in getting enough for a vest.
Jumping the gun a little there cowboy, Dont have the spare time to sort something like that out.pennywise said:
was a good question though
I did'ent mean that in a "bad" way. I just meant that I'm sure you could definatly get some people together for a run, but there going to want to make sure they get there stuff. I did not mean to offend you if I did.Sheriff Roscoe said:
No offense taken it pays to be careful these days. As for doing a run, Looks like a lot of work is involved and I'm not the world's most organised personpennywise said:
Recieved my vest and extra material from Batninja today. All I can say is WOW the fabric is about as close as your gonna get, I love the color, it's deffinatly alot more grey then what shows up in pic's, This vest is gonna rock once It's all weathered and armor attached.
Thanks alot for providing this bro. I catch you at an event, I'll be buyin
Anyone happen to have extra material?
Post a "Wanted to Buy" ad in the cargo hold. Exatra material may turn up as the vests get finished.DonnieDarko688 said:
Thanks Ripcode.Ripcode said:
Got it Saturday -
looks great - fits great - will have armour attached this week.
(haven't made the choice between snaps or velcro)
