    fil5117 reacted to PArmstr in Warrant Officer / Staff Officer / Bridge Crew gloves   
    I am going to post the refences in here.
     
    There were two types of gauntlets used in ANH. The first one was the pilot gauntlets that the TIE-fighter-pilots and X-Wing-pilots used. Thes gauntlets flare out a lot and gave seams on the back of their hands.



     
    The second type of gauntlets was used by the navy troopers in dress uniform and the warrant officer. I call does vintage biker gloves. They do not flare out as much as the pilot gauntlet. They do not have any type of stitching or seams on the back of the hand. Instead they have a closure strap on the wrist.



     
    In the ESB scanner and bridge crew did not wear gloves. The line officers had plain short leather gloves that had no seams or stitching on the back of their hand.  There were no warrant officers in ESB.



     
    The navy troopers in ESB had gauntlets that had a similar form to ANH but they did not have the closure straps.




     
    In ROTJ the line officer, warrant officers and the IN in dress uniform wore leather gloves that went past the wrist and had stitching on the back of the hand. All gauntlets in ROTJ seem to have been pilot gauntlets. They all flare out a lot.

    Here's a picture of mine, loops short so they hug the belt. Silver rivets to secure the loops, molded shape to hug the blaster. Stitching with no rivets.

    fil5117 reacted to Dader ID7021 in Rogue One ISB Officer CRL discussion   
    Hi all, I'd like to propose the following CRL. I've been working on a generic Rogue One ISB Officer based on Bozeden Jeems as seen in the visual guide. Since Jeems is wearing the same costume as Krennic does in his Flashback scene I think generic ISB officers could be added to the reference library just like the ANH ISB officer based on Yularens uniform.
     
    CRL Suggestion
     
    Imperial Hat, black
    For 501st approval:
    Fabric is a medium weight suiting material matching the pants and tunic if applicable. Gabardine style weave is most accurate. Base of the hat is conical, with a crown about 4" (101.6 mm) tall. Front and rear "flaps" overlap on the sides and are about 4" (101.6 mm) high. Front bill extends 3" down, decorated with 6 or 7 concentric stitches. Imperial Code Disk is positioned in the center of the front vertical flap.   
    For level two certification (if applicable): Code Disk has a notch detail on the outermost disk.  
    For level three certification (if applicable): Code disk exactly matches screen-used prop.  
     
    Tunic
    For 501st approval: White wool or wool-like twill weave. Double-breasted with a left over right closure on the tapered yoke. Yoke wraps across the shoulder to the top shoulder seam. The standing collar has square corners and is 2" (5 cm) tall. Collar closes snugly and includes a modesty panel behind closure. Two code cylinder pockets on both outside panels of the jacket located half way between the top and bottom on the arm hole. Wrist length sleeves without decoration, cuffs or buttons.  
    For level two certification (if applicable): There is a dart of about 2" (50.8 mm) in the top center of the yoke. There is a seam running the entire circumference of the tunic, dividing it along a line hidden by the uniform belt. The back of the tunic has princess seams that run vertically and turn outward to intersect the arm-hole seam at the vertical center.  
    For level three certification (if applicable): Tunic must be secured on the right side by snaps or buttons, not Velcro. There is no topstitching visible anywhere and it must have a lining sewn in.  
     
    Rank Bar
    For 501st approval: See the Imperial Rank Bar page for more information. Worn on the left side of the tunic over the heart. Rank consists of colored plastic tiles mounted on metal bar. Each bar is 1.3" (3 cm) height, length is determined by chosen rank Rank tile dimensions are 1/2" (12.7 mm)width x 3/4" (19 mm) height and about 1/8" (3.2 mm). Tiles are mounted with 1/4" (6.4 mm) spaces between them. Rank tiles are translucent.  
    For level two certification (if applicable): Belt box, code cylinder, and rank badge configuration is consistent with film canon officers.  
     
    Code Cylinders
    For 501st approval: Two code cylinders are worn on the uniform, one in each cylinder pocket. Dosimeter style: True radiation dosimeters or exact replicas, with correct clip and blue top.  
    For level two certification (if applicable): Dosimeters have a silver, non-brass, clip  
     
    Belt
    For 501st approval: The belt is constructed from a non-textured leather or leather-like material. It is approximately 2" (50.8mm) tall. The belt is loopless. A single large snap or rivet is visible approximately 1" (25.4 mm) from the buckle. The belt is worn with the snap on the left of the wearer. The buckle is constructed from a horizontally brushed metal or metal-like material. The buckle size is approximately 2 1/2" (65 mm) high and 4" (100 mm) wide with 0.5" (12.7 mm) radius rounded corners. Buckle is adorned with an Imperial Code Disk at the center. Refer to the Imperial Buckle reference page for information on accurate and inaccurate style buckles.   
    For level two certification (if applicable): Belt is made of leather. Between 2" (50.8 mm) and 3" (76.2 mm) tall. Buckle has a slight horizontal curve. Belt has a groove 1/4" from the top and bottom edge along the length of the belt.  
     
     
    Jodhpur Trousers, black
    For 501st approval: Fabric is a medium weight suiting material, the weave matches the tunic material. Flared riding breeches are canon, with semi-stiff flares to the hip/thigh area. Breeches are worn neatly tucked into tall boots. If pockets are included they are not visible with the tunic on.  
    For level two certification (if applicable): Flare is more triangular in shape than other officers Pants are made from a wool twill.  
    Officer Boots
    For 501st approval: Knee-high, black, lace-less, smooth non-textured, leather or leather-like material. Rubber is not acceptable. PVC or synthetic material is allowed as long as it gives the appearance of leather. There are no stretch panels, buckles, snap tabs, or decoration. Boots have conservative heels. If zippers are present, they are hidden on the inner part of the boot shaft. Not visible from the front, side or back. The top of the boots may be flat or Spanish Style, but not Cowboy or Super Hero (pointed at the front) style.   
    For level two certification (if applicable): Boots do not have a zipper.  
    For level three certification (if applicable): Boots are made of leather. Not vinyl or PVC. Exact replicas of English riding (dress) boots or Equestrian boots.  
      Gloves
    For 501st approval: Black, wrist length gloves constructed of a non-textured leather or leather-like material. Gloves have a plain back and no visible adornments  
    For level two certification (if applicable): Gloves have a button on the palm at the wrist Gloves made of leather Gloves end just past the wrist

    Normally I'd agree with the ease things in slowly approach. When the CRL was written the information was good with the knowledge we had to hand at the time, now we know different. I'd say it's more confusing to ease the change in, just do it. As a GML I'd say use a degree of common sense and be flexible with people who had started costumes before the changes were made.

    The officer in that picture is Alan Flyng, he had a unique code cylinder. Which is different to the others, and is a one off. I know this as fact through speaking to him, and the fact he still has it  As a GML I wouldn't allow this it's a non standard Line Officer. At base clearance we're looking for the standard not the exception.

    fil5117 got a reaction from CommanderBaz in ID85421 Requesting ANH Staff Officer Lieutenant Childsen Imperator Status [3.-]   
    Previously we have been lenient (right or wrong) with the top stitching, due to the fact the majority suppliers now offer a uniform without top stitching we are now strictly impose the CRL requirement:


     
    On a personal basis I would also prefer Imperator level ANH Staff Officers to have the 'Fahrenheit 451' style jacket, at the moment this is a request and not a requirement.
     
    Unfortunately, I will have to reject this request, apologies,

    Can you also ensure your photo's include your latest uniform configuration, if you have a new hat that will need to be worn in the photographs.

    If that is the case, then it should be on the Tarkin CRL only, as if it's not visible, why do we require it on other costumes?  Answer = we shouldn't.  I'd love to see this removed as well.
