    This is just a constructive comment, but thats way too blue... I know the debate of blue vs. grey ESB suits rages on, but In my opinion, its not that blue. From the research I've done, a mix of RIT Pearl Grey and evening blue will get you the "correct" ESB suit color. The color should be a light to medium grey, but with a cool, bluish tinge for ESB.

    Yeah, I've dyed several flightsuits for people on these boards. I did Grifter's last. I actually got the Evening Blue colour from Ruffkintoy's custom mixture, but I dumbed it down a little because I thought Evening blue was more or less perfect.

    I like the Evening Blue as well (good call, GCN!). I still think I like a little Pearl Grey mixed in as well, just to muddy the mixture a little bit.

    I'll have to try that on my next 'suit.

    My plan was to have a grey jumpsuit already and dye it blue, then dirty the heck out of it.

    Wait, for the suit pictured you said Midnight Blue was just about perfect, then in your next post you said it's the Evening Blue. Which color is it actually?

    I've used and always suggested "midnight blue" with "Pearl grey". After you've added the battle damage and dirt, it will look darker so don't go too dark before you weather.

    here's mine before I sold it.....

    I am going to have to agree with Batninja on this it is a bit way too blue alone.
    I use the same Evening Blue with pearl grey for the ESB.
    I start from white twill and then dye it.
    Midnight blue is to deep of a Blue. Sorry Ben.

    I think Rit royal blue, followed up with rit pearl grey, then some sun bleaching + weathering looks pretty good.
