ok gang. I have a potential glove maker who works in leather who is interested in fabricating the style of glove worn by Han Solo in the first star wars film.

At this point price is a bit nebulous as the initial main cost is work time to fabricate a pattern for the glove. Once that is done, then any number can be produced.

So right now, I'm looking for a nod from those interested in getting a pair or even multiple pairs of this glove style so he can refine his pricing. payment would be by paypal come the time. shipping costs to be confirmed in the future too.

Those interested then please reply to this thread or PM me so I can gauge interest.

*update* some more information.

the gloves will be in a quality leather not so thick they are useless. we're aiming for a good thin leather so you can wear and use the gloves properly. I think the word 'kidd'? leather has been bandied about in conversation.

initial price indication for a group order would be

$105 -$110 + shipping. that price is dependent on a minimum order of 10 pairs.

I will post some photos shortly of what we are aiming for. in the meantime any photo references to assist making this as accurate as possible would be welcome.

I would be interested... my main concern is the detail, size and quality... not worried about cost so much if they are done well. What materials are they planning on using... and do they have good reference material?

well I've managed to secure some good photos of the topside of the glove plus the extent of the black leather on the underside. the only thing I really lack is at least one clear shot of the palm and a better one of the wrist strap.

but this is the point of being an interest thread. gauge interest and see if anyone can chime in with references to make it more accurate.

you can get a good shot of the gloves wrist strap on the special edition where Jabba mets Han at Doc bay 94.. they are in his pocket, but you can see that they are velcro strapped... Wink There are also a ton of solid shots as well in the cockpit before they make the first jump to light speed. Side note and a funny... someone please tell me how Han managed to take the gloves off so fast just before making the jump to light speed. Nice little easter egg there. Smile

If you need any pics let me know I can email you some.

to make absolutely clear and avoid confusion.

this is a totally different source the previous offering.

f anyone has pictures of the gloves, by all means mail me. I have some,. but could do with any of the palm area or the wrist strap to accurise better,.

well unfortunately, you've caught me about 2 minutes before I was due to post. basically. dead project.

I've had no one apart from yourself express any interest at all and to make it viable. I was needing 10 minimum to make this work. so that throws us back to the other potential lead someone identified.
