you ain't kiddin....

The supplies of these shirts are drying up...
The Navy has switched to a different shirt...
so these once plentiful chambray shirts are already getting hard to find...
I jumped when I saw these and bought each size.

I am making a RFT shirt/vest combo as one of the prizes for our 501st/RL Team that is part of the Aurora IL Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk...

I give incentive prizes for our team that goes out of their way to raise funds...

one is the RFT shirt/vest combo...

a complete child's Jedi costume (large)...including robe, outer tunic, inner cheater tunic, tabards, obi, and belt..

a small child's Jedi - no robe

and some collectibles...

our team page:

Just a question:

I found this picture on the web, and the website claims it´s the picture of an original, screen used RFT shirt:



Doesn´t this tend to be more of a greyish colour?

Yes, it is.

A screen used shirt, and more grayish in color.

I've seen a few people make a shirt from scratch using a color of fabric closer to that photo.

But most people don't want to go through that trouble, so other colors of blue are deemed acceptable. And the first Standards for this costume were written years before the auction photos of this shirt were ever seen.

I know this is asking a lot but could someone in the US please order me a pair of these shirts.
I will of course pay the cost of purchase and shipping over to the UK.
Thank you in advance.

I think I'll get a set just for future purposes - getting you one too won't be any trouble. Toss me a PM if someone hasn't already handled it for ya.
