    OK, I won't tell you then, but I'll tell everyone else. The chest is FP, but the collar and shoulders are Durasteel.

    Jango's Kid's vest is made out of this material for his ESB Fett.

    Yeah, its a bit too shiny without weathering, but after some misting of greys & blacks with an airbrush, then hitting it with dull coat, it turned out perfectly. Although I do beleive that the ESB vest is slightly more grey than the ROTJ vest, I'm convinced this stuff is the correct fabric to use....just gotta weather it plenty. Below are before & after pics. In the first pic, my vest is only very lightly weathered, in the second pic, it is weathered heavily with an airbrush as I described. My neckseal is the same fabric with very little weathering, so you can see the difference that the weathering makes...takes the shine right out of it. Hope that helps guys BTW: thanx everybody who gave me weathering advice on this

    As already mentioned, it is shiney. But, just like all parts of Boba's suit, it needs to be weathered to give it that worn, aged look. I dulled mine up with misting taupe (dark tan), gray and black spray paint. The real clincher is to then hit it will Dull Cote which knocks a lot of the 'shine' out of it.

    Yes, it is still available. All the details, including the cut-off date to submit payment, is in my first post.

    Two yards should work, but I can't promise there'd be enough extra for a neck seal, too.

    If one were to make a vest with this material, and then COMBINE it with the TK409 Neckseal? Would the neckseal not match and look completely out of place?
