Thanks! Yeah I modified the back quite a bit and added the chest greeblie to the jacket. And of course the rest of the costume, haha. I'm still working on my accurate blaster build, after that I'll be looking at doing a V2 of the shirt and panta now that Ive identified the materials better.

So I know we can't go by the toys with any certainty— but both the new Han and Lando (black series 6") figures seem to have a new style of "smuggler shirt." The big difference is there seems to be only one bib that folds down. The back side is possibly up (Cassian-ish style) but with a diagonal "V" cut that makes it look like the bib is folded down when worn under a jacket.

Looking at the available promo images with this in mind, I am almost now certain this is the case. It was easy to miss with Han wearing a jacket over the shirt—but what's interesting is looking at the shots of Lando it's even more apparent.

Here are some images to support my theory (apologies for the image of the toy—I found it from someone who is customizing the new Solo figure, though I think perhaps the white makes it easier to see).

So what size blood stripes and spacing are yall going with. These look smaller than ANH blood stripes and not embroidered. I was thinking of going with the Iron on red strips from ebay do to the size. Then darken each stripe by hand.

Stick with Indy's jacket. FJackets is low cost knock-off stuff. Indy's will be a wearable set piece.

The FJackets version is probably fine for a casual cosplayer, but it's accuracy definitely leaves much to be desired. Missing lots of details, and that contrast stitching is obscenely over-done.

^^ Ooh, where did that one come from?

Just a note on color: Always be suspicious. Photos go through so much photoshopping and filters that any photo that ends up being released can often bear little resemblance to the original, from a color standpoint, even when it's seemingly clear like this.
