The grey of the donut is very light. I think it looks like the spray paint color MTN 94 Stardust Grey.

I was able to play the Bespin DLC a couple of weeks ago and collected more references. The jacket is somewhere between light blue and dark blue. It is not a gray-blue. I bought a royal blue hooded sweat jacket for my female Bespin trooper. The belt is a dark brown webbing belt with a black rigger belt buckle. I will be using the one I made for my female desert trooper. The gloves are medium or dark brown leather gloves. I am going to either use the medium brown ones from my rebel vanguard or the dark brown ones from my Tatooine specialist. The shirt looks like a light gray tank top. The pants, soft pack, and gaiters are different shades of gray. The gaiters of the female troopers have black laces. The shoes are either gray or black it is difficult to say. The male and female troopers have different colors for their shoes and gaiters.

I posted the RFT for color comparison. The belt of the RFT is a darker brown than in ANH. The pants are also a darker gray than in the movie. The black west is different than the ANH version and the Rogue One version.

Edit: After seeing the Bespin trooper and RFT side by side I think that the pants of the Bespin trooper might be navy blue or night blue. Another possibility is that the RFT pants are medium gray and the BFT pants are dark gray. It is very difficult to tell what color the pants really are

I honestly wish we would have had these references 4 years ago when I started this topic. The colour references are exceptionally helpful.

I wished that too. I hade to put my project on hold until I had better references. I got the two Battlefront games for Christmas in 2018. It took me over 1.5 years to finally get better reference screencaps in August 2020.

Can you figure out what blue the female and male jackets are? My royal blue jacket might be too dark and the azure might be too greenish. I am also having a difficult time finding a light blue one in unisex 3XL. Blue-gray is impossible to find.

Ill see what I can do. Is there a raster for the colors used in the game? We cross indexed what the game designers provided to known colors (RAL, Federal Standard, hex etc) to help sort out a bunch of colors in SpecOps.

I know your size struggle all too well. Its literally impossible for me to mail order much, so I make almost everything.
The things I have mail ordered just don't fit.

That is a good question that I cannot answer. I have not seen a raster for the colors yet but does not automatically mean that it does not exist.

I have found a regular hooded sweatshirt in light blue that should fit me. I will just modify it. It stays open the whole time so it should not be visible that there is not enough fabric in the center to close it all the way.

I can only order clothing from certain companies. If I ordered something that fits I just reorder when I need a new part of clothing. Unfortunately, companies have the habit of stopping to produce the stuff that I like, and that fits me.

Pam I know that struggle all too well. Back years ago Swat grey was the preferred grey for RFT BDU pants. It was good for the time. It was great if you wore size Medium and Large.

So on the sweatshirt, I went backwards to what we know. We know the sweatshirt is a light blue grey, and i found the image of the original RFT uniform that was sourced from the RAAF utility shirt. Our own USN uniforms suffice but I have three by threee different makers, new in package, and they are different shades. thats why I never made my RFT shirt.
Looking at the sweathshirts in game, clearly they have structure, weight and a loft that lets them lay in round folds, not like twill which will flatten out. The color is that light cornflower blue like the RFT shirt I have added to the image. I found a fabric that looks similar, but you will never now what color it is until you get it in hand.
You mentioned the pants in your post; clearly they are not black, since the DH17 IS black. I would suggest these are LAPD Navy, which you would think is black from TV shows, but its a very dark navy blue. I found these on Ebay. https://www.galls.com/propper-ripstop-bdu-uniform-trousers?PMOPV1=LAPD&PMOPV2=SM&PMOPV3=REG&PMSRCE=GAPLA&msclkid=77c765471c5b170cd45b3a318710aa37&utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=IM-Shopping&utm_term=4577335627146654&utm_content=PLA

Ian can you link us to that grey? ive looked and Im only coming up with household latex in gallons.

I feel after looking at the jacket on four devices that the color is the same chambray as used on the RFT, just in different material

now that I can see a better picture I agree its a brown leather belt.

Palladium makes the boots in a bunch of colors including black

or this for twice the price

I wear palladiums because they go up to size 14 US.

Going back to my discussion points from 2016, we came to the same conclusions earlier.

I never said that the pants are black. The female pants are either dark gray or dark blue, perhaps navy-blue or night-blue. The soft pack is black or a very dark gray. The only thing that really looked black on the females are the ties of their gaiters. The boots could be black or very dark gray. The different shades of gray are very difficult to distinguish from each other.


My light blue hoody came this morning. I will make a color comparison with the two hooded sweat jackets after it was washed.
