Hi All
Please view Vader Original used for full thread

The hooks are from military uniforms in the UK.
I have one on my work uniform.
They are painted balck but are brass and are in fact used to keep the belt level when in Ceremonial uniform.
I feel quite pleased I found this :-)


They have been bent and the brass content was a little higher then as due to cut backs they are slightly lighter today.
Like I said I can get hold of these.
You would need to get hold of a say 1950-1970s Ceremonial Military uniform to be EXACTLY correct.

I found something like this when looking for a means of attaching a rots cape to the armor. The kit I bought was just called a hooks and eyes kit. There are a tone of diff. sizes. What I purchased are size 1, 2, 3. They are pretty small but would have been nice for a cape.

The one in the pick may be a 15 or bigger hard to tell. Not to up on the seamstress stuff....but if your looking for items like this do a search for coat fasteners...hooks and eyes ect. :wink:

Did they use the same hook for ROTJ and the ESB Stunt costume?

Hey Gra30 the pics have gone of the hooks from the dress uniform you posted, nice trooper lids and backpack though....

I looked at some of these hooks you had mentioned and they were a little too long inho, over an inch and maybe 1 1/4, can you repost them with a ruler next to show the scale cheers ?
