After looking at pics from either the Dressing the Galaxy exhibit or one of the celebrations I'm having problems placing the costume labelled as being Luke's. It doesn't fit our CRL (mainly the brown on the under coat shoulders) Nor does the costume match any reference Hoth troopers that I can find. The belt is Lukes and the compad on the glove is his as well. What am I missing?

Looking at your picture, there are three rows of squares on the arm, with the first column being red. The top picture shows two. I would assume that the red ones in the original pictures are hidden by the angle of the pic.

With the perceived color discrepancies between the film and the props, the blue in the original photo might be washed out and seen as gray in your photo.

The jacket is missing the white part on the sleeve with the two blue looking buttons, and the shoulders do look white in your photo. I'm going to have to watch ESB again. Maybe he wore different jackets in different scenes. I don't think that we can pass the color of the sleeves off as coloring mismatches in the film.

click the tauntaun for hi-res pic (1600x1200). Razz it looks like a different jacket

also-- re:vest -- the rank insignia is missing from the manequin-display.
(under the scarf, in the tauntaun pic. on the right shoulder/breast, facing forward.
that white thing with the two metal dots, is missing) Razz it looks like a different vest

Agreed about the rank bar, and it would seem that it is a different under jacket. Shoulders are grey rather than brown (mannequin display) so what hoth trooper had brown shoulders? Or was this outfit made for the tour? THoughts?

Well, here's a picture of some of the rebels in the trenches

The shoulders do appear darker in that picture, but it could just be the contrast from the lighter over jacket. I haven't watched the movie again yet, but it is possible that they mixed and matched the jackets for the display.

Shoulder Patches

Commander Luke Skywalker wore a different pattern. This is the only other pattern confirmed to date. A greater number of the cells are coloured, which may indicate either Skywalker's middle-ranking officer status or his qualification for more diverse fields of duty. It is interesting that the colours of the three columns are consistent with the infantry patch. It is likely that all possible patch configurations have only red or neutral in the left column, blue or neutral in the middle column, and black or neutral in the right column.

Comlink Squares

The three officer insignia studied to date are all different. Interpretation is necessarily tentative and speculative, due to the small observation set. The problem is complicated by the fact that we only know the formal rank of one of the examples: Luke Skywalker, who was a [Wing] Commander. Princess Leia had a high status within the Alliance, but it is unclear whether her political and diplomatic station translates into a military rank higher or lower than that of Skywalker. Solo did not even possess an honorary commission at the time of the Battle of Hoth; his insignia was probably only informally lent in order to give him clearance to enter certain Echo Base facilities. His insignia probably ranks him lower than Skywalker, but there is no way to be certain. The deck officer of Echo Base, named Tigran Jamiro in the SWCCG, is of unknown rank but at least the two leftmost squares are readable; the right squares are unclear but appear to be blue.

I've made a few Hoth trooper jackets and I can tell you that the shoulders should be tan. It's a great debate over tan vs. grey. My feeling is that it is tan. Lighting has a big impact on how something looks. Also, the jacket on the mannequin is not tucked in. Luke must have worn his tucked into his pants, because in the movie you can't see it below the vest. That might be what's throwing you off...?

Here are some new pics I found from the MOM (so the site says) exhibit. Once again this is being claimed as Luke's outfit
