I found this pic that the the Tenzigo Weems actor Eric MacLennan posted on his Twitter account. It shows him with his shirt bib undone, and you can see the closure mechanism that the costume department used.

Is that a whole ton of snaps that I see? It also shows that the bib opens on the left. Not sure if the snaps go all the way around the bib or if it is sewn to the shirt on one side.

I am pretty sure the photo got mirrored. The closure of the shirt should be on the right side. At least it was in the movie and the visual guide. Another indicator for the mirroring of the photo is the orange looking thing on the belt and the fly of his pants. They should be on the other side. If the photo is not mirrored he would be wearing women's clothing. I do not think that he wears woman's clothing.

It looks like they put snaps on a strip of fabric and then sewed it to the shirt. It is probably faster than sewing a bunch of press-studs to the shirt. I think I have seen something similar on a blue vest of Scarif marine.

I think you are correct. The Galactic Strategic Command posted something similar on Facebook at the beginning of September 2nd.

Yes it was mine from GSC, Its was snap on tape (twill tape back) I'm working on a thing to give a rough idea of how to alter a shirt pattern.

Its just down one side, I if you did it across the top it would cause too much bulk, there's just a snap on the other corner on mine.

Looks like I will have to order snap tape from the UK but I definitely what to try it when I make my next RFT and/or officer shirt. Sewing on the snaps by hand is not fun.

Did you have to buy a 50-meter roll? I do not know if I will be buying any patches before I would need the snap tap. Perhaps I could pay you to send me 2 or 3 meters? It would probably still be cheaper than buying the stuff that I can get in Germany.

after wearing my uniform a bit ive been worried about the collar, but I see in the images from themovie that Weems collar moves all over. I was going to put a dot of velcro on or maybe a tiny snap I guess Ill just leave it.
