4. Belt and buckle:

Very nice visuals, Patricia! Thank you so much for all that work. Smile It's really wonderful.

I went through the guides Blair put together for the new standards and used that and your draft along with the references to create a new working draft that follows the template and guidelines we are to use now.

That information can be found here:

[/url]http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=96554[url]

I did not include any details for the Draven style jacket because Empathy fabulously volunteered to work on that bit.

It is probably best to avoid complicating things by being too specific about the rank badges, so I left that part a bit more open ended. This is one of those areas where it is possible to give folks a little wiggle room without drastically changing the outward appearance of the costume

The boot description has also been updated to simply be short ankle boots. If the screen used ones were not Chelsea boots, it doesn't seem to right to call for them specifically in the standard. I think the other Yavin Officer standard will need to be changed to reflect that as well when we update it to the new format.

We'll also want to add metric units to the imperial ones already listed, and we'll need clear photos of each individual element.
Here's what I came up with so far:

Senior Officers, Rouge One

1. Jacket/Coat

Version A:
REQUIRED:

•Jacket is khaki or tan and made of a medium weight cotton, poly/cotton blend or similar fabric
•Military BDU-style jacket reaching below the hip
•Mandarin Collar
•Sleeves are plain without elbow patches or cuffs
•Buttons or other closures are hidden
•Saffron or mustard–colored shoulders/yoke
•Two patch pockets with top flaps, located on the upper chest- one on either side of the front opening
•Two gusseted/cargo style patch pockets with top flaps, located approximately even with the hips-one on either side of the front opening

OPTIONAL:

1. Topstiching along the edges of the edges of the pocket flaps

2. Duster Overcoat

•White, cream or natural and made of a medium weight cotton, or similar fabric
•Ankle length duster style coat
•Shawl style lapels that are approximately equal to the width of one shoulder at the top, and taper to a point below the waist
•Double welted pockets approximately 6” long placed over the hips*, pockets are angled upward at approximately a 45 degree angle
•Duster is worn over the Version A jacket

*Pockets should be proportional to the wearer


Version B
Draven style jacket (still needs a good description- Empathy is working on this)


2. PANTS:

REQUIRED:

•Pants are khaki, coyote, or chocolate brown colored and made of a bottom weight cotton, poly cotton blend, or similar fabric
•Utility trousers similar in style to military BDUs
•Two cargo-style pockets with a top flap along the outside of each leg, any closures are hidden
•Pants are worn tucked into the boots at the ankle

OPTIONAL:

•Pants may have rectangular padding approximately 6" by 4" added to the knees- proportional to the wearer

3. Shirt:

REQUIRED:

•Tan, beige or middle brown shirt made of topweight natural fabric such as a broadcloth
•Collar ending in two points
•Front has a rectangular bib with seams on the bottom and both sides
•Long, plain sleeves without cuffs
•Closures are hidden
•Worn tucked into the pants

OPTIONAL:

•Two rows of stitching around bib edges
•Stitching on sides of bib continue to the bottom of the shirt
•Back yoke

4. Belt and Buckle:

REQUIRED:
•Brown (We should specify the color range) leather or leather-like belt
•Belt is approximately 2” wide
•Octagonal silver buckle approximately 2” wide by 3” long

5. Boots:

REQUIRED:
•Ankle high boot in brown or black leather or leather-like material
•No visible laces
•Anklet-style cuffs that match boot color

OPTIONAL:
•2-3 silver signal flares held in the ankle cuff


6. Rank Badge:

REQUIRED:

•Silver metal square or with a metallic appearance
•Red or blue circles arranged in a pattern consistent with the rank of captain or higher, circles may be colored hollows or raised pips
•Worn on the right side of the jacket, just above the breast pocket.

The updated proposal looks very good. There is only a minor thing that might need correction. You wrote, "2-3 silver signal flares held in the ankle cuff". As far as I know, the ankle cuff had no flares at all or two flares. I do not remember seeing any with three flares.

I went back through the references. I think the belt color ranges somewhere between dark tan to medium brown perhaps even dark brown. It is very difficult to name the color due to the fact that every leather or belt manufacturer uses different terms for their products.

Totally agree on the leg flares! Will change that to two. Thank you for the belt color range as well!

What are your thoughts on the belt buckle dimensions? I estimated without one sitting in front of me. (I know the 2" high is correct- not sure of the length measure.)

I'll update the proposal in just a bit- want to grab metric measures to add.

Empathy and I pm'd a bit on Sunday, and I know she's making progress on the Draven jacket. I think the yoke details are figured out, and the main description- she's working on the pockets now.

Very Happy

It is great to hear that Empathy is making progress on the Draven jacket description. I really appreciate her help.


I measured Colonel Haxen Delto’s belt strap and belt buckle in the visual guide. The belt strap is 3.5mm wide in the photo. The belt buckle is 4.5mm wide and 7.5mm long. I calculated which measurements it should have if the belt strap was 5cm wide (about 2 inches) in reality. The belt buckle should be 6.43cm wide and 10.71cm long. That should be 2.53 inches wide and 4.22 inches long.

Those measurements should be fairly correct. My rectangle RFT belt buckle, which is a tandy leather rectangle buckle blank 2" (51 mm), is 6.7cm wide and 10.3cm long. My octagonal RFT belt buckle, which was made for a German Garrison member who supplies us with holsters, is 7.3cm wide and long 11.6cm long.

Empathy- Real Life always comes first!! When you have a sec- shoot me what ya have on fb, and I'll post it up for you here and add my thoughts. Don't worry about the sewing terms- we can edit that, and the sewing terms will give us a starting spot. I just didn't want to have us both writing the same part. Work smarter-not harder! I'm going to go through our chat from the other day and pull the bits we worked on then. Smile

Excellent, Empathy!! Thank you so much for that hard work!!


Split the difference on the belt buckle measurements. We want them to be approximate, so there's wiggle room. Does that look ok to folks? I left the bottom end as 2" because they look almost flush to belt in some cases, and when we were working on our resistance officers, we found the 2.5" looked huge.

Updated the leg flares to 2 optional.

The more I think about it and look over the model revisions, I think we should stay away from naming weaves. There are sooo many twill variations it could be confusing.

Added description for the RFT Helmet- this needs tweaking I am sure.

Added belt description for this option.

Tweaked the option B jacket bits to have angles etc. Reworded some things for clarity. Empathy, can you look at the bit about the stand with the zipper and clarify?

Empathy thank you very much for the description of the Draven-style jacket. Kristina, I think you did a great job completing the description of the jacket.

I found a small mistake in the belt and belt buckle measurements. You wrote:

4. Belt and Buckle:

REQUIRED:
•Dark tan to dark brown leather or leather-like belt
•Belt is approximately 2” wide (6 cm)
•Octagonal silver buckle approximately 2”-2.5" wide by 4” long (approximately 6-6.5 cm wide by 10.5 cm long)
•May be worn on the pants or over Jacket Option B at the waist


1 inch is 2.54 cm. So 2 inches are 5.08 cm and not 6 cm. It should say:


4. Belt and Buckle:

REQUIRED:
•Dark tan to dark brown leather or leather-like belt
•Belt is approximately 2” wide (5.08 cm)
•Octagonal silver buckle approximately 2”-2.5" wide by 4” long (approximately 5.08-6.35 cm wide by 10.16 cm long)
•May be worn on the pants or over Jacket Option B at the waist


I think we should also permit belt buckles that are slightly larger such as my octagonal RFT belt buckle. It is 7.3 cm (2.87 inches) wide and 11.6 cm (4.57 inches) long. I do not think that it would look too large when I compare it to my rectangle RFT belt buckle. I will try to take a picture of me wearing my signals intelligence technician with my octagonal RFT belt buckle tomorrow.

Kristina is great at turning my rambling into sense Smile. I think its looking really good.

I mean the zip casing/ plaquet/ buttonless button stand.......like the bit the zip sits in up the center front of the jacket, I just had mental block about what to call it.

I think we should also permit belt buckles that are slightly larger such as my octagonal RFT belt buckle. It is 7.3 cm (2.87 inches) wide and 11.6 cm (4.57 inches) long. I do not think that it would look too large when I compare it to my rectangle RFT belt buckle. I will try to take a picture of me wearing my signals intelligence technician with my octagonal RFT belt buckle tomorrow.


I've seen a picture on one of your build threads of your belt I believe, and it looks very nice -so I think we are probably good expanding the measurements.

The cm/in conversion is off slightly because I was trying to keep the measurements no more specific than to 1/2 cm or 1/2 inch. Is it muddying the waters? Should we stick to one set of units?

If we're including the duster as an optional item, the oval belt buckle should be an option as well.
