Khaki Brushed Cotton
This style of fabric is perfect to make a replica of the pants worn by Ewan McGregor in the third installment. While the screen used originals were likely store-bought pants, the exact brand and color have long been discontinued. At Thread Lair we don’t want that to stop you from having appropriate slacks to complete your outfit so we sourced this Cotton fabric in a Khaki color that will compliment your ensemble perfectly.

The last shot is of a pair of pants we made from this fabric.
The screen used originals were a very distinct shade leaning more towards the red/ yellow spectrum and have often been described as mustard colored by those who have seen them in person. We went through a lot of swatches to match this description as well as all of the reference material available to us to balance the color and allow enough variation. Certain costumes such as this stand out because the different layers and components contrast with one another yet not so much that they clash tonally with the overall color temperature.
Where many of the costumes in this film series are monochromatic or adhere to a certain color temperature it’s important to us that even the smallest detail, even the ones mostly hidden under layers of other garments, are right. Which is why we don’t settle to buy pants, we insist on making ours!
