    The original flightsuits were white cotton twil (surely mid-weight), made for the Supertrooper character. Then Boba Fett was born and they had to dye the flightsuits to a grey/blue colour. The dye they used is ***** so the colour faded over the years.

    This is what was recommended when I was looking to make a jump suit. Buy two and use the second to makes sleeves, pouches, pockets. The dickies on top left w/ the short sleeves.
