I have two flight suits I picked up and I'm trying to decide on which ones color seems more accurate... The one on the left is a heavier material and seems like a better color the one on the right is a very light fabric and has no labels other than made in China the left seems more legit to me but any help/input would be appreciated!

To the left, to the left...
The left is more palatable in my opinion. I do believe the right one is a Rothco - more of a yellowish tone to it. Hope this helps!

Definitely the one on the left. Can you show us the labels? Looks to be a nomex flight suit, heavier material, that's what several people use, looks nicer in my opinion.

Great choice. Looks like you got a nice nomex flightsuit. The other one is mos def a rothco knock off of a nomex.

Working on a belt gizmo, I have an old Viking props one but I wanted to try my hand at a scratch built one, so far it's looking good. I'll post more as I continue. I also have the belt, mt500 with holster, and two key fobs. I'll get a pic of them up soon as well. Right now my attention is on the gizmo build!

A few updates, Its about 90% there! I'm waiting on GB fans elbow pads I'm not satisfied with the color of these, and the first belt gizmo I scratched and started another with a more accurate build plan, it's getting there I'm taking my time on it!

Okay guys, I'm not 100% sold on the gizmo and will likely opt for a pcb kit sooner or later, the boots came it and fit and feel great! I picked up a pack off eBay for a decent price... so the uniform is basically done, I got a few pics today!

What type of suit were you wearing in the pic from 2 years ago?

So quick question guys, would it be frowned upon to wear let's say a GB2 belt gizmo with this GB1 inspired uniform? Has anyone done this before? I guess it's really not a big deal maybe I'm just being crazy lol

Do what makes you happy! It's not like we're as strict as the 501st. Great job on the uniform!

The nomex suit really makes all the difference! I highly recommend them! And thanks for the help early on in the build! This site is full of great information that helped me build a great uniform!

I almost always wear my custom GB2 belt/fobs and gizmo with my GB1 suit, trap, and pack.

I'll be honest, I used to wear it all, loved the life guard. But at a certain point I wanted to just be just the guys I saw in the first movie. And slimmed down on the weight of it all too.

I found perfectly fitting vintage boots ok eBay and a real vintage Flightsuit LTD suit on eBay also (the color is the best match). And I decided to just go GB1. You can do what you want. But it's nice to be streamlined and accurate too.

What was that quote for women going out, look in a mirror and take one thing off before you go out. Lol.

I picked up a new GBII belt gizmo, it's one of spongeface's kits, I just got a holster for it. I'm sourcing out a new leather mt500 holster and fobs as well... this is such a fun and addictive hobby lol I'll get some pics in suit with the new gizmo very soon!
