    Apr 28, 2015, 7:11 PM - flight suit question #1

    So I finally saved all the money to build an ESB Fett, I first ordered the two price flight suit from Man of War as it seems super comfy, and I was stoked when I got it. Overall it looks great, but it seems a little loose... Never having had made this before I don't know how loose or snug it should be. I got the medium because in generally everything else I wear... I'm medium. I was just looking to see if that perhaps I should hem it, order a small, or leave it be because after all the gear you want loose. Overall I'm just not sure any advice would help!

    where do you find it is sitting loose? I got the same one, and find it fits me pretty true. I'm losing weight as it is since I ordered it, but honestly, alot of the parts will be covered, at least the upper torso. If it happens to be loose in the crotch remember that you will have the cod and Boba-Thong to help curttail that a bit.

    The shoulders seem to poof out and, the sides of the torso, ultimately I don't think it will be too much if I have to hem it but I was just wondering, the ideal fit.

    The best thing to do is post some pics of how it fits. Most of that sounds like it will be covered by the flak vest.

    precisely what Bounty said. Shoulders and torso will be covered by the flakvest and armors... as well, have you considered getting some shirt keepers?


    Will help to pull the shoulders down probably...

    The exposed areas should not be very loose. Look thru screen pics in the gallery and you'll see that the arms and legs fit with just a little extra room. As Bounty stated, the flak vest should cover up the torso if it's a bit too wide- but you have to have room in the flak vest to handle the excess material. The The flak vest should be a little snug. Pics def speak a thousand words though.
