    Right you bunch of slack-jawed weeners, I have double checked the quote given to me, if you guys want the Dickies Pyrovatex with the 'Dog Coller' neckline I can get them for £22.50 but they are going to be a special order and it would be a good idea to get them all ordered at the same time, bare in mind that these are top of the line items and I've had to pull some serious strings to get them at this price, all I need is chest and inside leg mesurements in inches. I've been told that they'll take up to a week to arrive so the sooner I order the sooner we get 'em.

    Please copy and complete the following -

    Name:
    Inside Leg:
    Chest:
    Quantity:

    Or for those with the sense they were born with, you can just PM the info, oh and also bare in mind that due to my restricted financial situation ordering 50 pairs is bit out of my league, so if you want two pairs I may need some dosh sooner rather than later.

    If anyone is getting two pairs of coveralls (one for the base, one for the spares parts) - would anyone mind if I scrounged some of the spare material off you...I'm somewhat skint at the moment, and can't afford the second pair. :_|

    It's a bugger...I used to work for a company just like the one we're getting the flightsuits from...If Protec had them in stock, I could have gotten them REALLY, REALLY cheap. :(

    I think a cool idea aswell would be to have our usernames on the uniforms....or maybe on our helmets our titles like for me and mark FF-UK sup-AIR-man n stuff would be cool

    Don't get too attached to those titles guys. Your time with them is up this weekend I'm afraid :(

    What sizes do they go up to on these particular jumpsuits? I ask because I'm a rather "large" gentleman, and as such they might not do my size :D

    I can say from personal experience, I think the height of the coveralls will cover you, mostly, but may be 1" or 2" short. I used to work for a company just like the ones selling the orange coveralls, and was asked this sort of question all the time.

    If you call the company up and ask them if them if they do them in a 34" leg, as it's not listed on the website, you might get a good response. They will most likely have to look into it with their purchasing department, who will look at the specs the company says they can do.

    What the company sells them at is not the same as what they can get them in from the manufacturer. Trust me on this one. Just because it's not on the site, doesn't mean it isn't made. They will have to order them in, and it may take a few more days, possibly weeks, and it may cost a little more - [link=http://www.protecdirect.co.uk/]Protec[/link] used to charge an extra 20%, I think for the tall sizes, so Dickies may have a similar policy. So I'll just warn you now.

    It's pretty easy to make. Follow the instructions posted from our site (echobaserebels) that are posted above and you can't go wrong. ;)

    I have to say, Joe, that looks pretty impressive.

    How long did it take you to get it all together? Did you find the helmet hard to come by?

    Thanks!

    The coveralls are orange workman's coveralls by Dickies. I bought two and used one to can the material needed for the pockets. The boots were purchased at Sportsmansguide.com. The gloves are Damascus motor cycle gloves. The helmet & chestbox are kits I got from Richiesarmor.com

    I hope this helps. :)

    Wait a second, everyone has gone rebel here!?! Is there no Imperials anywhere!?! :_|



    Well since Joe has posted here, he's your best source for any questions I believe. If any of you want to go Imperial, then come talk to me. *Points at title*


    Well being a member of the 501st, at least I'll have lots of targets for practice soon enough. [face_devil]


    Seriously, if any of you have any sewing questions, I might be able to offer some advice/tips.
