    Well, I got a pair of the black with green diamond braces from Albert Thurston and they are just awesome. I thought the same as you and I'm quite certain now that these are the same braces that are worn in the movie. I add a few pictures with different lighting (cellphonecam again, sorry)

    2 to 3 yards should work fine.

    For reference, I paid $75 (with a $15 tip on top of that) to have the dress shirt sewn. Being that I wore it to my company Christmas party, I needed it turned around in a little over a week after getting the fabric. The seamstress works professionally for a major suit store during the day and runs her own business while not there. With that being said, you may be able to find something cheaper by going to your local fabric store and asking for references.

    This is before I put buttons on it but I thought some of you would like to see how this looks as a shirt.
    Due to some issues the shirt isnt 100 percent accurate. This is mainly due to the fact that even though I matched up every hex I could on one side, they didnt match perfectly on the other side (yes... I sat there and matched my hex placement to that of the original shirt. I was concerned with white balance, okay...)

    Wow, sereiana....that's beautiful! I doubt anyone will notice the "alignment" issue!
    I'm glad to see some shirts being produced from this great fabric; I have, as of yet, to find a tailor skilled enough to do it justice....

    So getting back on topic - after all that molding and casting this is is a teaser of the first test of the new scars.

    This is crossposted from superherohype because the shirt was relevant too

    Doing the interrogation scene joker because I wont have the coat and other props ready for Katsucon.

    haha! I just sewed my shirt up last night and I'm the guy that orchestrated this! Hopefully, you get one soon.

    Nice sereiana! Looks great!

    Rob
    I'll try to take some tonight with everything. My vest is completely done and everything else is almost perfect. I have to do some alterations on the overcoat and throw it and the pants in a blue dye bath. This was my first time tackling a collared shirt so I wasn't sure how to alter the neckband to my size. Besides that, im happy with it!

    Ghostsoldier, did you purchase a turnbull and asser tie or know where to find one?? I thought if anyone would know it would be you because after reading over on the superherohype boards, you look like you got this costume covered.

    Kwally...thanks for the kudos; although I have everything I need to finish the costume, I haven't had the time to get it all together, trying to deal with family, jobs, bills, etc. I'm going to use this costume for years to come, so I'm not in any particular hurry...it's a timeless, recognizable treasure, as we all know!

    I don't have a T&A tie...it was way too expensive for my taste, so I did 2 things: I made one using a T&A tie pattern scan and iron-on paper (it doesn't look too bad, after all), and I also bought one of these Stafford ties, when they were available...

    Hope this helps!

    Just got some pics of my costume thus far. The blazer is lighter than the picture makes it seem, but the alterations and lining was custom sewn by ME! The colors seen of the pants and braces also are VERY different from natural lighting. Just gotta finish dying the wool melton I bought and sew up the overcoat!!
