Hi,

i am Chris from Germany and want to start a bith.

I want to ask you, if this jacket and those pants are acceptable?

The jacket of the biths does not close exactly in the middle, does it?

So this jacket should be good? I will add buttons on the jacket and remove the raised sleeves.

And one last question: does the collar have to be closed in the middle or is this ok?

I just found this pic, showing the collar not closed on everyone.

Is it necessary to Close the collar in the front or is it ok, too if it is open?

Yes. Three of the Bith had "Chef's" jackets, that close off-center. Two Bith in the background had jackets that close center... but this is only apparent in a continuity photo. For a consistent look, we recommend the jackets close off-center, on the wearer's right side.

The mandarin-style collar does not need to meet closed at the neck.

So far so good! Can't wait to see you in it!

Use your jacket with the off-center front. That's the jacket we recommend, and you will match other costumers.

We only found that detail out from a non-film reference.


The main part of the instrument is 1.5" to 2" in diameter. If those parts are large enough, it will look great!

My instrument parts arrived.

The mouth piece diameter is a little to small. I try to replace it.

But this way it will look:

i just realized that the original mouth piece is a little smaller, too.

Now i just need to order one more hose connector, because there are 8 x 2 rows.

I just could order 7 from the ebay seller. :-(

now i hope that i can get a smiliar one from somewhere else.
