Hello A-wingers!

As I have learned one of the major problems in creating the A-wing costume seems to be the green overall.

So, last week I went to the company that made mine, and asked if they could make copies of my overall, and what the price for it would be.

A copy of my overall would be around €50.

The base for it is this working overall:
http://www.berufskleidung.at/
(look for "Einsatzkleidung"->Latzhosen, Overalls-> Overall "Worker")

They would have to order the correct green fabric and would sew the pilot overalls without all normal pockets and use the saved material for the needed costume pockets.





So, this overall would have:
- the normal colar flipped up with velcro for getting a mandarin style colar
- a pocket with straight flap on right upper arm (the copy would have a slightly larger pocket with a cigarrete box size)
- a "pen" pocket on left upper arm
- a commpad pocket on left lower arm, suiting standard size commpad
- a pocket on each upper leg (the copy would have slightly larger pockets than mine, size DIN A5 (14,5x21cm)
- standard overall size according size table on the company homepage (I am 1,91m and a size 54 fits perfectly)

I know that this overall is NOT a perfect recreation, compared e.g. the X-wing overalls, but as there are no clear pics of this costume availavle, this overall should work perfectly for registration.

Please tell me if you would be interested, then I would go on negotiating with the company...

I received a call from the company yesterday:

The fabric (like my overall is made from) is still available.

They also told me if they could do a run of 10 or more overalls the price would drop to appr. €40 - €45.

Let me assure you that I don´t earn any money out of this! I just want to help if someone needs an overall...

Update:

I had a final talk with the sewing company some days ago.
The price will be €45,- for an overall with pockets as shown:



There will be no other pockets on the overall exept those shown with white paper!
Commpad pocket should fit most available commpads!

My offer to have this overall made for you should officialy start next week in the "Prop&Costume" forum!

Ahh, great minds think alike Smile That's exactly the pocket arrangement I came up with for our Redkap conversions in Mos Espa. You have me thinking about full-on rebuild though.... I'm not 100% happy with the blue-green shade of Redkap, but it's something I will go back and fix later. More important I get all the other bits done!

Shipping cost update:

Today I visited my local post office and asked for the shipping costs - and I was shocked!

So, here is what I was told:

shipping in an official austrian postal service box (€2,59 extra)
- EU: €15,20
- international: €18,50

Total cost estimation:
overall as shown above: €45,- (you will get the original manufacturers bill)
shipping: €15,20
additional: €5,- (this covers the shipping box and a small time/ driving compensation for myself)

TOTAL:
EU: €65,-
International: €68,-

If there still is someone interested I will open the official required and (already by LMO) permitted sales thread.

Thanks for your attention!

And just in case anyone was wondering ...

68.00 EUR = 88.7616 USD
Euro ↔ US Dollar
1 EUR = 1.30532 USD 1 USD = 0.766097 EUR
