I'm so down with this! I'd be interested in an ivory shirt for sure, probably XL. I noticed the "X" stitching on the square panels - that sold me!

Has there been any progress?
There has, mostly behind the scenes. This project is coming along very nicely, on several different fronts! I hope to have enough time to work on this so that I would be able to show off significant progress by the end of next week.

I don't want to cut any corners nor take any shortcuts, so just bear with me a little longer :) This is also the reason I did not take a single $ on this project from anyone yet, until I can display a complete finished set. In addition, working out the different sizes, from Small to 2XL while keeping all the elements in correct proportion has been challenging and very time consuming. But again, I feel I am on the right track to delivering a beautiful final product with many different accompanying accessories.

Good to hear. Looking forward to that update in the near future.

ALIEN Nostromo Crew Shirt - Very Accurate Replica
I am in the process of making myself and a few friends some very accurate copies of the buttoned down shirts the crew of the Nostromo wear. It would be a shame not to offer this out and see if anyone else would be interested.

Some details that will set this run apart:
I have been very fortunate to receive indirect access to the original screen used garment that is part of Bob Burns's collection, Thanks to the very generous assistance of Mr Steve Laboyteaux stephen210. This includes accurate measurements of all the elements of this shirt, fabric type and the best estimate, so far, of the original color of the fabric when It was new.

  • Design: This is an extremely accurate copy of the design produced for the film. Shirt pattern, elements and dimensions are all almost 1:1. All based on measurements done on the screen used garment.
  • Buttons: Custom made, never before reproduced, copies of John Mollo’s spring snap button design in brass and a yellow golden finish. Photos and video below...
  • Fabric: 100% linen, Medium weight. Very close to the same type of linen used in production.
  • Color:
    • Seafoam Blue for Ash.
    • Ivory off-white for the rest of the crew.
  • Piping: Very close to the original piping cord material used in production, off-pink Rayon.
  • Wings:
    • Dallas and Kane: Gold and Silver bullion, extremely accurate design. (I make these separately over the past few months)
    • Ash, Ripley And Parker: Blue embroidered wings.
  • Elements:
    • Pen loops
    • Name tag space
    • Full round ended epaulettes
    • Arm pocket.
    • Custom made copies of John Mollo’s spring snap button design in yellow gold.
    • One Nostromo Shoulder patch.

Size Chart:
Is under revision. Will update soon.


Price:
$180-250
per piece, if there is significant interest that would justify out sourcing some elements of the production, the price could go even lower.

If you are interested please comment bellow. Type of shirt, Seafoam Blue or Ivory and SIZE.
This is still very much a work in progress.


Thank you!
Adam

REFERENCE PHOTOS:
On the LEFT is the original, on the RIGHT is my first sample.


Custom made spring snap buttons :
- When new they were yellow golden.
- They develop a patina over time.

Plus a short video to appreciate how beautiful these are, yet they were hardly even noticed on film:
retrogarde assisted with the design. Thank You!

Whole shirt:
Ignore the color of the Olive green fabric, this was made just in order to work out the pattern)
