Mark Hamill (Ep. 5 Fatigues Jacket and Pants) Crisp Khaki Cotton
Your Fatigues Jacket and Pants will look as sharp as ever when made with this fabric! Featured in a Light Cream/ Khaki color this crisp twill is a nearly identical matching fabric to the screen used Jacket and Pants worn by Mark Hamill in the fifth installment. Don’t be mistaken! The original costume was heavily weathered and reference photographs typically make the color appear gray, but before such weathering was applied the actual color was just like what we offer here.
The great thing about this fabric is that with some watered-down acrylic paints you too can achieve a weathered finish after assembling your Jacket and Pants, or you can retain the “as issued” look seen in some of the production photos from the movie. The choice is yours but you can’t go wrong with this excellent material.
This fabric is also a great choice for the padded/ quilted vest worn by Hamill as part of his snow gear in that same film! The last photo shows how well this goes with the other fabrics from the snow suit ensemble.
To our understanding the screen used costume was made from a wool gabardine or wool blend but this Cotton alternative is more readily available and much more affordable while retaining the look of the original.
