    Well, got my new jumpsuit. This isn't good. It's blue. Definitely asked for light gray - got light blue....
    Don't feel too bad. When I ordered mine from PP, I opened the package to find a TAN suit!!!

    I have heard a lot of people being shipping the wrong colors by SFP and it has convinced me not to buy from them. This is like the 3rd or 4th time I have seen this on the boards and although they always say he will ship the right color I have to wonder what is going on there? Why can't they get it right the first time?

    Yeah man, I read ur post a while back - absolute bang-on job correcting the tan issue, in fact when I first got my original ROTJ dark gray & I read ur post I figured I could bleach out the suit - tried a spat & TK409 can back me up on this - the dark gray suits are the most colorfast material I've ever seen! Again, that job u did on urs was outstanding!

    As far as bf669's response re wrong colors being shipped the only thing I can say is Anton has provided good support. My only hope is that the suit makes it here b4 Oct 31!!

    9/15/04:

    Man, you guys are gonna hate me....

    I now officially have in my possession all 3 colors offered by SFP - the original dark gray, the new "TK 409" light gray (which I must add I'm very happy w/), as well as the ESB blue as posted in a comparison pic above w/ the original dark gray.

    But wait - there's a 4th color.

    When I ordered the TK 409 color I requested 2 left pouches, which I rec'd. 'Course, as u read above I got ESB blue instead. With my Tk 409 suit I have rec'd a complimentary R blue pouch to make the blue suit 1 w/ a L & R pouch. I have been instructed to send the blue suit to the west coast.

    Problem (not mine now, whew~!) is the new blue pouch is a different blue. I don't have a camera here @ the office but let's say the above pic describes the suit well - a light gray / blue, which IMHO (& MO only) def is closest to the ESB pics. The new blue pouch is way more blue than gray.

    Hope I haven't ruined anyone's day, just thought a heads-up should be in order especially since a few members have agreed that they thought that the pic above was very close to the ESB color...

    O.k., here we go, the following is a scan of the materials - it really is incredible how the fabrics look entirely different under different lighting - I mean the original dark gray does not look that dark...

    From L-R: Original Dark Gray, New "TK 409" Light Gray, ESB Blue/gray, ESB Blue

    I have had no response and a lot of people need suit for Halloween. Update this in case you need something. My wife is converting one of these for me...

    http://www.automotiveworkwear.com/Me...ategory_Code=C

    They are $27 bucks plus shipping, 100% cotton, and I have a solution to address the double sleeve and shin tool pouches using 1 single suit. The fabric is relativiely easy to match for the pouches and should take dye well (though I am doing Pre-Pro ESB Albino). Order the long inseam, cut the sleeves to mid-arm short, save the long sleeve remnants, hem all edges. Link sleeve remnant with cheap webbing. Put webbing-linked sleeves on first, then put suit on...poof, double sleeve suit. Pant bottoms cut to proper in-seam. Use remnants to make shin tool pockets. Buy a yard or 2 of 100% cotton fabric at Jo-Ann's, Fabric World, etc. Get your mom or wife or girlfriend to sew the stuff, then you have a suit. Only 40 days left to Halloween. Parties are starting early since it is a Sunday Halloween. PM me if you want help on details.
