    does any one have any other good quality sources on Large esb suit makers other than MOW he is out to? Arkady is backed up for months...Preferably here in the states

    I think you'll be waiting at least a few moths with anyone. But BobaMaker makes a really nice one.

    @Arkady ..one of the nicest and most affordable out there. Id recommend her work to ANYONE! The wait your speak of is well worth it, and unfortunately most quality makers will have a wait time. If your in a rush, Fett may not be the best choice of costume lol. Not trying to be a jerk or anything, just letting you know that quality work takes time, and the makers that are booked up for a bit are booked up for a reason, they are the best out there at what they do.

    That said, that jumpsuit you mentioned you picked up is going to need ALOT of work to get it to Fett spec. Not impossible though of course. If you have good sewing skills or a good seamstress you may be able to pull it off pretty well. Looking forward to the final product.

    I feel you. The waiting is killing me but I do want the quality so I have the great Arkady working on my flight suits, but I will want more suits so hopefully you do find a good alternative. I don't need an as accurate one for a Mando Mercs ensemble.

    Do you have access to a sewing machine? If you are doing a custom mando you can always create a similar suit with minimal sewing knowledge. It probably won't be as nice as Arkady or some of the other makers if it is your first time, but I did mine over the course of a weekend.
