    The real ones were weathered, look at this pic of the right glove, it has some yellow tones on the white. It can also be seen on other pics:

    I didn't really weather mine. After two troops they got so dirty I had to wash them. They look good now with a little wear and tear from trooping.

    Shake hands with a hundred kids and you'll see. Plus there is always food and snacks at troops to get on them as well.

    Shaking hands with kids weathers them enough.

    There isn't a single item on the Fett costume that doesn't look weathered and used. As a point in fact, the whole idea of 'worn and used' was the basis for the aesthetic for Star Wars. Lucas wanted the SW world to look lived-in. That is a complicated way of saying yes -- weather those puppies -- either with chocolate cupcakes like cojake or fuller's earth like ILM-- but, yes, weather them. Weather everything.
