    After bringing this vest to top accuracy (thanks again for all your help to make it that accurate), i feel ready to make a run of these.

    The vest comes with all accurate Seams, piping etc.

    The price for the Vest will be

    weathered VEST $US 300 + shipping

    So send me a lot of orders, cause i have a lot of bills laying around me

    For those of you who also ordered the Flight suit, hang on here and save the shipping.

    Hi everybody,

    seems like i have my creative tailoring run at the moment (see my jumpsuit run) and I'm planing to make my own Jango vest.

    I'm not sure what color i should use and i would be very happy for any help to make this as accurate as possible.

    Here are some samples

    choco grey, royal blue, ocean blue, silver grey


    The next question is the template.
    I need a accurate template for the vest and would be very pleased if some of you, who owns one, could send it to me.

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    Mike

    Hi Mike,

    I'm wirting from Italy.
    The right color of Jango's Vest is Grey.

    This is the leather that I'll use...

    ( see number 208 )

    About your images, maybe the Choco grey is the better !

    Re: Jango Vest question

    I haven't started mine yet, but from looking at the reference cd it looks like the vest at one time was the same color as the gloves, with significantly more sun damage. I was thinking of maybe going with a
    Blue and then lightly fading the leather.

    Re: Jango Vest question

    If you were limited to only those colors, I'd go with the second one (the one that's more of a charcoal grey).

    Re: Jango Vest question

    The gloves and the vest on Jango Fett are haven't the same color.

    The Glvoves is Blue/Grey ( similar Royal blue )
    The vest is grey.

    I'm sure of that...

    Re: Jango Vest question

    Hey, thanks for your quick responses.

    Here are some pics that i made in Paris.
    I think royal blue would fit, but not sure.








    Hey


    Cruzer, thank you for providing me so much assistance on the Jango Suit. I'm never limited to anything So if these colors does not match the right one, lets open the next door.)

    Any color samples?

    Re: Jango Vest question

    I was there.... with my colors and leather champion/model ! ( Example : see the pictures when I had verify the suit color )

    I have been able to verify the colors in Milano at the "Star Wars:The show", July 2005 ! As I had say I'm sure of that .. The light blue/green have the prevalence in the pictures : the result are the colors not real....

    P.S.. See the good images of "Seeker's Jango Fett "... is my opinion that the colors of suit, vest and Gloves are perfect !!

    I'm siding with Cruzer on this one. I like the darker gray color. Here's a pic of mine, it's dark gray.

    Re: Jango Vest question

    Based on seeing the vest in person and the ref. pics, I agree the leather looks to have a hint of blue in it. However, I did not get to see it as up close as Darth Steven (wow).

    It also does seem to be misted with a couple earth hues and grey that kinda hides the blue tone.

    I think he's right, the closest that can be bought outside of a custom order, is a charcoal grey color of leather (which is hard to find in itself).

    But I do feel it's made from an analine dyed leather hyed that has minimal texture, and about 2-2.5 oz weight.

    Just my opinion.

    Re: Jango Vest question

    No problem Cruzer ..

    I have seen Jango costume near, too and take vision of many details. ( vest and other... 2 hours with Jango costume ).
    Perhaps the vest has been "aged" with a blue/grey color, and maybe
    to "come outside" it in the photos ... but the based color of the leather was like in the following image.

    I hope to help you, buddies !

    Re: Jango Vest question

    Any progress on this?

    I'm a sucker for research so here are some hides currently being offered by the seller kysonleather on ebay that are advertised as being various shades of dark blue. It says they'll send free samples of specific colors being sought.

    Those are some nice leathers. They all look close.

    Re: Jango Vest question

    I think the blue 11 or blue 9 look close.
    Can someone pm the source for a accurate vest pattern??

    I ordered some samples today.
    Hope to get it soon and will post it then.

    Does some of you know how much useful leather you get out of one hide that kysonleather is offering?



    Thx
