I would say that these are "inspired by" the film jackets and are by no means screen accurate. In fact their "Han" jacket is actually inspired by the jackets worn by the production crew that filmed the Hoth scenes in Norway, not Han's actual jacket which was brown.

I think in order to be screen accurate, pictures from the movies are more important than the original screen used costumes. If lighting and editing makes the jacket look blue and you can't find any brown fabric that looks blue, blue fabric can be the better choice.
But as Han wears other clothing that can look both brown and blue in different lighting, i always thought the Hoth jacket was also black. Very interesting.

They ARE doing a very limited number of brown Han jackets - I haven't seen images or anything, but apparently they're going to be more accurate than the regular blue ones. For $1,980 each.


I like these as "inspired-by" winter-wear, but probably not enough to fight to get one of the limited number of them for $400. As costume items, I imagine they'd be unsuitable for RL standards.

Luke doesn't wear a jacket, he wears a shirt and a vest

This IS actually a jacket and vest combo. Ended up getting one for casual wear...
