Hello all, I am new to this forum and I was wondering where I can find Han's brown jacket from Solo if I'm on a budget? I've seen Magnoli has it for around 325$ and at the moment that's beyond my reach. Ebay have several sellers with jackets but I don't know which of those are accurate/legitimate. Any help is appreciated thank you!

Other than Magnoli's, none of them are especially accurate.

That's very unfortunate that Magnoli might be the only legitimate source for the jacket. I found a listing on Etsy and was wondering if this is any good?

It's not an especially good replica...and at that price, you'd be better off saving another $60 and getting the Magnoli one. It's well worth the price, as it's a quality piece tailor-made to fit you.

You can't go wrong with a Magnoli garment. Thumbs up

I echo what others are saying. You don't want to go cheap and inaccurate with the signature jacket...

To add to this. If modified would the this jacket be approved? If yes than what modifications would need to be done. I am also on a budget and the jacket is my last piece.

I bought the licensed product from Her Universe as a cheap stand-in for haloween. Razz
it was only $50. I cut off the zipper.

most likely not legion approved.. but it sure looks the part. LOL
surface stitching looks correct.. it's actually not bad for $50. Razz I was pleasantly surprised.

I've seen the Her Universe jacket, and it's actually pretty nice.

Not sure if it can be modified to get approved, because I am no judge. But not as a costume but just as a jacket it seems like a pretty sweet deal.

I can imagine that it is a disapointment when the Magnoli jacket is outside your reach, but it is very good. Yes, I have also seen this one.

I suppose we should still count ourselves fortunate that this is being produced as a White Label (WL) item to keep the price down.

For instance Han's leather jacket from TFA (That Magnoli also offers) is 725 dollars. Which I personally think is a lot of money.
