Boot Cuff Calculator for Patterning:
Sam posted this in a thread over in the trooper section, and it's a really great tool to help do the math you need to pattern cuffs that fit your specific measurements. It works really well for the ankle cuffs that can be worn with chelsea boots to mimic the boots we see on many of the officers.
Patricia has some great process pictures of the ones she made in her build thread here:
Tutorials for Modifying Existing Boots:
Ben has put together a really detailed build thread showing how he patterned and modified a pair of Westport boots here:
The base boot he used are Rockport Mens Harrison Side Zip Boots in mocha.
Empathy also has a great tutorial for modifying existing boots. It can be found here:
She used the Chrissy Chelsea boot from Whitestuff.
Some pattern help for those wanting to make a spat to attach can be found here:
The Rockport Travis boot also looks like it would make a good base.
For those wanting to do the Cassian/Jyn style boot, Amelia (Em) has written up a nice tutorial for creating the flap that is added to Frye Sutton style boots. It can be found here:
The Flap pattern is here:

The Falcon Jacket pattern used frequently for Solo costumes, is a good base to start from when making the Cassian/Yavin Operations/Jyn style jacket.
Action Back/Moto Flange Patterns:
This pattern (if you can find it) has the action back/moto flange piece that should let you Frankenpattern the jacket:

There is also a really nice video walking through how to make it- which should help with understanding how the action back works.
Mood also has a really nice free pattern for a moto jacket that includes the back here:
