    Apr 28, 2005, 12:39 AM - Neckseal Material #1

    I did a search first on neckseal materials but didn't find anything.

    Looking at Tk409's website, it looks like his is made of some type of vinyl... kinda shiny... Can anyone recommend something to use that won't make me even hotter standing in the sun for 6 hours? =) I believe I can swing the pattern, but the materials, I want to be sure I'm using the right stuff.

    Thanks!

    The neck seal is made from the same fabric as the vest.

    Right, but it's the same fabric. It's just sewn to the jumpsuit.

    Alot of people choose to use the vest material inside out, creating a slightly different sheen than the vest. The MoM pics suggest that these two pieces are made of the same material, but the neckseal material is reversed.

    Oh, and tk409's neck seal is not made of vinyl, it's cotton.

    Actually I thought it had been determined that the original was done up like a Dicky similar to the TK-409 neckeals.

    I don't think that's be determined. In fact, this photo shows quite the opposite

    I don't really have a sewn vest =) (more like an offwhite t-shirt) but just use some cotton? Ok.

    Thanks =)

    Cotton broadcloth is what I made Evil_Benius's out of. I ended up dyeing it with RIT to get the right color. It's inexpensive too which is a plus.

    Thanks Iycis.. I picked some up at Hancocks yesterday and am currently having someone sew it together. I'll post some pictures when it's done... My only concern now is that the vest and neckseal aren't connected. I guess I'll take some kind of velcro to keep it snug and no skin is showing.

    ... the neckseal is supposed to be attached to the Jumpsuit? ... Ok.. i see in the picture above.

    This might not be impossible then. I could sew it to the jumpsuit like an additional collar..

    THANKS Tylerdurden!!!
