Battlestar Galactica Uniform Fabric Study

A friend of mine graciously let me borrow an original screen-used Battlestar Galactica uniform tunic from his personal collection. Here, I am comparing fabric I purchased to re-create the Battlestar Galactica uniforms with the original fabric.

*Please note: the collar and trim are NOT original to the uniform. The original collar and trim were removed for use in the TV show "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century". I've miss-placed the information regarding whom did the restoration, but I will post that when I have it.

On to the pictures:
