I would go regular. For me the length is long enough. The long i have the sleaves are longer too. Too long. They swallow my hands if i don't tighten the cuff adjustment. But yeah, i would go with regular. I think you'll be happy with it. I could wear pants under it if i wanted and be comfortable. But i don't. I just wear basketball shorts.

You're welcome. I was where you at a couple months ago. Getting the right suit, the first time was becoming nerve racking. But now you can get on to even more ridiculous stuff. Like sewing patches and leg hose in the right spot. And dyeing pistol belts the right shade of grey. I'm on 8 now...

No problem. I like talking gear stuff. For a movie patch, get one here on GB fans when you can get one. I got my patches on Ebay. Not movie accurate, but i like them. Yeah, i think you'll be good in 50R.

Ah right so it can be a messed up job quite quick yeh I was looking at the pearl grey Rits looks easier to understand about the patches it cost quite a lot for postage to the U.K for one little thing it’s a bummer though

If you want a really accurate no ghost patch then the best GB1 patch on the market is from Todd Cook Designs. His webstore launches at the end of this month, he has a facebook page too. The best GB1 name patch is probably from GBFans.

There's still loads of debate on the belt colour, personally I like the one GBFans sells the most, rather than a properly grey one.

I have the GBfans one that i like a lot too. But now its become almost an obsession to get the perfect color of grey from dyeing. I know it's just from the dye, but i can't get over the slight purplish and blue hue. The things i get hung up on.

I never intended on buying a flight suit. I have my Spengler wand which I've modded and will continue to mod. The Hasbro pack has been ordered and I bought two patches from the Calgary GB's because they had a sale. If I ever would buy a flight suit, it would have to be a CWU-p27 but getting one to Belgium from the States (new or even second hand) would end up a disaster for my wallet.
But one day I was scrolling through Ebay to see what the prices were on those flight suits and I stumpled upon a seller who was selling a second hand one and in my size! And on the European mainland and at a very good price! So I ordered it and a few days ago it arrived after two weeks of waiting.
I am so happy but then again I am also lucky because the seller I bought it from lives in Kyiv, Ukraine and it was sent out not long before the war over there started... I just hope he's okay.

Usually tan/beige. That's the standard color.

Some go with the dark grey (GB II) and some regional groups have their own colors they use, but any color is acceptable.

I know that Ecto Force (the local Ghost Corps costuming group out of south Florida) goes with black flight suits, because they look nice. But holy hell, it's so hot down here nearly year-round and I'm always roasting in my tan Nomex suit in the air conditioning.

Cheeky idea if you're not 100% sure on size/fit and have Amazon Prime...some items have a try before you buy option...you can get a couple sizes, try them and see which fits you best and return any you dont love the fit on. I may try this on a Propper nomex suit in the near future and they may offer it on the Tru Spec as well.

I ordered the TRU-SPEC Men's 27-P Basic Flight Suit Khaki 2XLL on Amazon, there was no try before you buy in that size available. It arrived and fits. Still a bit bummed about it not having the screen accurate knife and lap pockets.
Still I'm happy with it and found it to be looking great for my first suit!
My measures: Weight 260lbs, Chest 45, Sleeve 33, Waist 45, Inseam 36.

I may use the Spirit Halloween No Ghost logo patch sewn about 3-4" below the shoulder seam on the right arm, centered between the shoulder seam and the elbow pad.

And am looking into the 2"x4" nametag patch sewn next to the left chest pocket of the flight suit, about 3" from the collar almost right on the main on/off zipper.

I'm looking into options for getting the leg hose connector and want to use a detachable option such as a metal plate/magnet so it can be removed for washing or when using the flight suit as coverall for house maintenance.

I use the Tru Spec and truthfully, not having the lower leg and knife pocket doesn't bother me. My hose conector is on Velcro.

Unless you're are going for dead on accuracy, it's entirely up to you. 8)

TRU-SPEC is a great Ghostbusters uniform. It fits very well while still looking close to the ones in the movies. You could always get a tailored-made Magnoli flight suit later down the road when you're ready to get a screen-accurate suit.

I've seen instructions on the Uniforms forum on making a magnet-based hose connector. I haven't done it myself yet but it seems simple enough after a quick trip to a Home Depot or hardware store.

EDIT: Found the thread on how to make the hose connector - viewtopic.php?f=42&t=36691
If you don't have access to tools like a hacksaw or a hardware store, be sure to check out the replies in the thread. Others have shared different techniques on how to achieve a magnet-based hose connector.

Got to the shipping options and the cheapest was $70 to the UK pushing the total to just shy of $300. It was at that point I decided I'll stick with my Tru-spec!

Ectowear is a Seller who is banned from here... So I personally wouldnt buy anything from him/them... But thats just my two cents...

Really hard to tell from a picture, but the Ectowear color looks off.

$300 after shipping is probably the going rate for high end suit. I have a couple of magnoli suits. I think the company has had some issues, but overall I'm happy with them.

I bought three different suits before that, all three are very different colors. I'm tempted to wash them in a little black dye to dull them down

The pockets on the chest are far too low on this suit, they should be orietated around the pectoral region... Rather than the abdominal region.
The second option you linked to is much more accurate, though more expensive.

Ebay would probably be better than a surplus store. I found some good summerweight ones in 40R for a pretty good price with just a quick search using "flyers coveralls summer CWU-27\P desert tan"
