    Well, they got back to me and asked me how much I wanted. I told them about 19 or 20 yards. Still waiting on a reply to see if it will be posable to order it like this. i will keep you all informed.

    How much depends on how big around you are. I would figure on 18-20 braids.

    The metallic gold or bronze would be perfect for that

    I thought that would be perfect for Mango.

    Well,
    they emailed me today and the minimum order on the 6MM ANTQ. DK. BROWN is 1000 yards. So I guess we are out of luck on that unless we want to go in together and do a bulk purchase. But we would need 50 people to buy 20 yards a piece for that to work. So i guess red brown will work just fine for now.

    Sure, but i'm wondering if you fix your belt pouches like Seeker did to keep the two belts together, then how much of this do you really need??? I mean if your belts are connected and not moving up and down, then half of the braided belt is never seen.... get what i'm sayin???

    Yeah I'll pile in on an order with ya

    I'm no Jango SME (Subject Matter Expert) but the red brown looks good and would probably come out more screen accurate if you ran it through some sandwiched fine grain sandpaper. Just a thought.

    I have a question for you short Jangos out there. Do you have the full 18-20 rows of braided leather on your belts or did you make yours with less? Reason I'm asking is that I am going to probably buy some from that site but in calculating how much I need, I'm thinking 20 rows will look too wide on me since I'm 5'2". It might cover practically my whole lower torso.

    I would scale it down so it looks right for your frame. Same thing goes for the ammo belt. A 3" pouch might look better for your height so make a paper template mockup & see if you like the results.

    Yeah, I would agree. I think I currently have 20 braids but need to take a few off. And have had to scale my pouches down some too. Paper mock ups for the pouches are helpful.

    What backs these braids as they go around your waist? I know what the back looks like but is there anything behind them the rest of the way? Or are the braids glued to each other?

    thanks

    That braided rope in the picture above at the mjtrim website is only 3mm wide. That's barely an eighth of an inch. Did anyone actually buy this stuff? I'm asking cuz I'm gearing up to making one.

    Oh duh. One of the links took me to the antique dark brown, which was only available in 3mm. Red Brown is available in 6mm and looks like the closest match. Thanks, Fox. I still remember meeting you at the Comic Con. That was cool. I'll be wearing my Jango at the CIII. I can't believe how far back some of these threads go. I'm a good two years behind!

    What can I glue the braides on? Another leather slab to fit my waist? Also - -what sort of adhesive would you recommend for this?

    ugh, i bought some 1/8" leather lace at Michaels and my braids are coming out thick and not like in the reference pics. I have the correct weave but just too thick. Did anyone else do this? Looks like I may spend more money to buy some of that mjtrim stuff if my wife doesn't first kill me.
