Hey everybody!:D What do you guys think is the most accurate jumpsuit available right now? I think I heard a while back that skygunbro's is pretty good, but I'm not completely sure... Thanks everyone!

I think it's either skygunbro or bobamaker. Last I knew skygunbro's suits were awesome and so weren't boba makers. BUT skygunbro takes about a week and a half where bobamaker takes 5-6 weeks plus shipping from the UK

Yes I agree that Bobamakers prices do not work in the favor of them. Personally I have a BM jumpsuit and it is great, I just wish that it wasn't so expensive.

I just got my SGB jumpsuit and it fits like a glove ! It's very well made and accurate in color for a VERY reasonable price.

This is how I would approach this. I have had a BM, a SGB, and a SFP suit so I have a good perspective. GO with SGB if you live in a warm climate (I live in Florida). If you live in a cooler climate or where the seasons are dramatically different (like snow in the winter), go with BM. SGB suits are thinner so better suited to hot climates and BM suits are thicker for temperate areas. If you are thinking about a SFP suit, go hit yourself in the head with a tack hammer because it takes forever to get if you get it at all.

lol, thanks man. I'm probably gonna go with a BM, the weather where I am is so screwy.. when it gets hot, it gets real fricken hot, & same with cold. Plus I'm gonna be ordering a JP from him, so I can just order a jumpsuit while I'm at it:)

i've got a skygunbro suit. i LOVE the pattern, fit, and responsiveness of him. my only complaint is that the fabric is too thin. he's usually willing to make your suit out of fabric you provide, so that's easy to work around.

the thin fabric is comfortable, but i find that the hoses pull the sleeves out too much and that the shin tools bang around a bit.

overall though, i give him 2 big thumgs up!

its a catch 22......I was making them from heavy twill but I was getting complaints about them liking the suit but it being to hot once everything was on...so i went with a medium weight cotton which for the most part fits most needs...I can get twill still but its more per yard which makes the suit a little more price wise. And if you send me your own material i can make one from what is sent as well.

yeah, atleast with SGB, you can put clothes under if its cold out, but then if its hot, with the thickness on BM, you cant do much about it. Besides, SGB you wait a week, BM you wait a month and a half

I love my SGB suit. You supply him your accurate measurements, he makes you a suit that fits like a glove. There is nothing more comfortable than something custom tailored for you. On the other hand I think BM makes them to measurement also and they look awesome as well. Both guys are awesome to deal with, can't go wrong either way

thanks for all the kudos folks.....BM makes a very nice suit and differs from mine..in this hobby its nice to have options.I say look into both and decide which one suits your need better.
Also as a side note I can m,ake them from material that you provide so if you want a heavier suit then send me the material you pick out. I also am ordering some twill for some ESb suits. and looking for ROTJ twill.My standard suits are made of a medium weight pre-shrunk cotton which wear well and once you get all the other fett gear on its about just right temp.wise.
