Star Wars: A New Hope Captain Antilles

My latest commission finished was for a Captain Antilles-style Rebel Commander as seen in Star Wars: A New Hope (Episode 4). I created the jacket and pants and modified the shirt. The shirt originated as two dark brown shirts, but I cut up the second shirt to create the bib-front style that the Rebel Commanders wore in the movie. The jacket and pants are 100% from scratch.

Few who have seen the movie could forget this poor man, even if they didn't know his name was Captain Antilles. (The costume as seen in the movie.)

One of the screen-used Rebel Commander jackets in an auction photo. It was from this photo I realized that the pockets were gusseted.

Here are pictures of my version, finished:
