Well, I think this is it.
Wedge Antilles from The Rise Of Skywalker.
Suit and Vest by Phil Kellar Spacey-Wacey Wear.
Chest Box (five lights) and Harness by Cospl88 Danny Chen.
Boots are German marching boots (no zipper)
Headset by Chefscreations.co.uk
Hairs a bit messy, windy day outside, lol!
Because Wedge was only seen in the Falcon Turret, there is some gear like gloves, gun and leg flares that are not seen, after reviewing some set pics this was confirmed. The boots were also confirmed as being Original Trilogy as well.

Have you considered the scarf?

I'm going to float a question here too. Are Ep 8 and 9 pilots with the nice flexible hose also supposed to use the hose connector on the upper thigh? Tucking the hose is TFA style, shouldn't TLJ and TROS be using the hose adaptor?

Good to hear back from you!
Yes I did do the scarf, I went for a light look, not too big and binding around the neck. I have a larger one that looked too cumbersome. I could up the smaller one a bit if need be.
Your question is a good one too.
Iíve seen many different ways in which the hose is placed. On Snap, it goes into a pocket just above the left leg pouch. In another I saw the connector mounted visibly above that same pocket. I myself have a metal washer inside my suit which a magnet on the connector holds onto inside the chap.
Iím going to assume that this is just a way the hose connector is stored until the pilot is in the cockpit, like a real fighter pilot. He then takes it out and connects it into cockpit. So, in retrospect, itís really up to the individual pilot where they keep it stored ore tucked.
I was inclined to put the hose into the leg pocket like Snap. Wedge was Snaps stepfather and he was also trained as a pilot by Wedge. Snap would have picked up a lot of Wedges habits, just a thought.
Your thoughts on this?

Leg connector or not, it looks like it came together nicely! Cool! Nice work!

Thank you Tony.
I really appreciate it!
For a simple suit, it was a tough build. Hero characters usually are as they have a lot of small character differences. Iíve got to hand it out to all of those with that sharp eye to detail who helped me out in putting this Wedge together.

I might have a space connector which I can pass on to you. I had not touch my gear over a year or two years now.

Itís me the person who talked to you on messenger on face book the other day

Hey Mary!
Good to hear from you here!
I take it by connector you mean the piece on your suit that connects to the fitting on the hose?
If so, all I do is put a 2Ē metal disc inside my suit. Thereís a magnet on the fitting that clamps onto it. Itís out of sight so no worries.
