btw - are you guys ordering custom sizes or just standard sizing?
A stranger in a strange land, an englishman in oakland.
They're just the closest thing in terms of design and pocket layout.Ohhhhhh so nomex isn't screen accurate? Well I guess it's good I found that out now before spending $$ on more haha.
The original suits were based off of nomex flight suits but the material was changed to cotton ripstop most likely to put up with the rigours of filming and because the cotton would be breathable.
Where as nomex isn't breathable and would get really warm for the actors and stunt men, especially under studio lighting.
Yeah it's just the closest non custom suit available but it's still not quite accurate.Material wise would tru spec be closer?
any update on these....I would imagine Covid19 might be slowing down the progress?New Zealand (where Magnoli's based) isn't currently on full lockdown as far as I'm aware, but no doubt like mike noted, their suppliers across the world are going to be suffering disruption.
Granted these are still a work in progress but as it stands the GB1 patch is far too idealised for my liking.Gotta say I agree, for how much detail is going into matching the fabric and making an accurate jumpsuit the patch should be spot on too. Thanks for posting this Red!
It seems like they made the age old mistake of using the logo for reference instead of the actual screen used patches.
Without some pretty major changes, I'll be replacing it.
I'm really glad that I nabbed one of Todd Cook's latest patches for that very reason.
That's Todd's latest patch in the last image, for comparison
To me this doesn't bode well...We're saying he's putting a lot of effort into matching the fabric. He's provided one image of Khaki Ripstop which I gurantee you, if you go on Alibaba you'll have no issue finding a similar material.The patches are not an indicator of what the suits will be. The research and development going into these is for the flight suit itself. The patches are an afterthought, I guarantee. Honestly, I'd prefer they weren't included in the first place.
If this patch is the sign of things to come, I'm feeling nervous. I was never going to use his patch as I was always certain I'd end up using other patches, but if the patches aren't going to be a close replica, what does that bode for the flightsuit. Right now, I'm feeling anxious that I have dropped almost $600.
Just serves to remind, that runs should not be financed until a realtive prototype has been provided. I bought blindly on this because I was so hopeful of finally having these suits happen....let's just hope I don't regret it.
