Finished the belt and happy with it. The kid at Tandy Leather said "Hey that's Luke Skywalker's belt from ANH!" It's not perfect, but it's close...

Thanks for bringing this up Saifai! I just found, bid, and won a vintage pair of the CORRECT goggles on eBay.UK. When I was originally searching these were too expensive or in really bad shape. The one's I just won are just perfect for Luke, thanks again! Preview picture from the listing

They arrived and are cooler than I hoped. I'll paint the frames and see what the dark brown leather looks like before I attempt to dye it. The elastic is going to be a bit more of a challenge to replace!

Here's the question - Were they brown leather or black?

I think this is a promotional shot. Shows the goggles great! All black and plain smooth black elastic, no leather trim on the band.
