The standards aren't very specific, but it varies from movie to movie. The ANH bandolier has the metal speaker disk that is on Han Solo's gun belt. TESB had them as well I think, but just one end instead of both. Kenny the Elvis Trooper makes them.
ROTJ has what looks to be a WW1 British Calvary button but discussion with experts suggest it is a fake or knock off. I think Wookiee workshop had a real one and might do a casting.

The ROTS and sequel trilogy bandoliers don't have a conch.

How specific must it be for submission... the costume reference library doesn't specify to well plus no potties are provided

well the real question is how much do you care about accuracy? I prefer to always be more accurate than the CRL so this way, nothing I do is ever called into question. As for the ROTJ button, I do have them, and I do cast them. They come in a set aleady done in silver and with a screw cast in for attaching to your belt.

I've always known a conch to be a sea snail. I'm curious as to what a chewbacca conch is?
