    Does the shirt have sweat wicking material over the chest? The image is small and I can't be certain if it's a crye combat shirt or something similar.

    If it doesn't pan out it can be used for other costumes very easily. I kinda wanted to go lightweight on cloth type material because i can do metal fabrication the shoulder armor will be metal and i like a heavy armor look so lightweight cloth would be great.

    The center of the shirt is 50/50 blend of cotton and nylon

    I've always considered using one of my combat shirts for a custom mando design I had awhile back as well. The shirt will definitely help with keeping you cool while your trooping.

    Also any tips on the vest for the armor to attach. Would it be better to make from scratch or if you know a good place to buy i kinda want a leather look
