    Found some at a garage sale. Anyone got good screen caps or photos of them?


    Were there any alterations as I seem to recall?

    thanks

    These are the closest anyone has found.

    They're made by Esprit. They were touted as "the real deal" on BSN but there are some minor differences between the two.

    As for alterations, the zippers on the gauntlets were removed as were the straps. Oh. And if the original gloves had brown suede on them it was dyed. Obviously.

    Cheers.

    This is the one that I have. Not sure if I am the only one who has it. Never seen anybody post any pics beside the one on the BSN. Since then I have modified the gloves - took the straps and zippers out.

    Hey, nice find. You don't come across those gloves very often. I used some close style gloves and modified. You never know what you'll find at a garage sale.

    I have a pair that are similar but without the suede on the fingers and instead of a zipper on the cuff it has a pocket that a mitten type cover comes out of to weatherproof the gloves.
    The cover does have the suede on it.

    It's made by Tour Master.
    Their called Gloves-in-a-bag.

    Just checked their site, looks like they don't carry them anymore.

    Got them about 6 years ago with the intent to do a scout costume.

    From what I understand there was someone that would mod these gloves to be screen accurate but I never had it done.

    No they're not, just because they're not available in North America, doesn't mean you can't get them anywhere else.

    If you've got a source for them, by all means share. I'm planning putting together a set of Biker Scout armor in the next few months.

    Um...okay. So where can you get them then?

    Aside from a zillion web searches and searches on eBay, a few years back I scoured Tourmaster's web site, found nothing, so I contacted them. They replied the gloves were discontinued.

    Contact them yourself if you like:

    http://www.tourmaster.com

    I assume if anyone still has them that it is old stock. I would love to be wrong here.


    Anyway, when do we get to see your gloves DC?

    Cheers.

    I would also like to know if the gloves are still available, as Rabid Ewok say... Let us know where we could find them... ;).

    The tourmaster looks like it can be altered even further to make it virtually identical.


    Id like to take a stab at it.

    I wonder if someone could do a run of BS gloves. I have a pair of esprit I'd be willing to lend out for such a project...

    My tailor sews leather. His prices are great.

    He quoted me 600 bucks on a vader suit which is very good.

    Ive asked about gloves and he said he can do them.

    Want me to ask?

    Very doable. Wants to get a head count.....

    Which begs the following action, lets count heads.

    Shoot me an email.

    E-mail sent. By any chance, was he able to give you an estimate on cost per pair? I know that will affect head count . . . it's easy to say "I'm interested", but then when you give a cost, a lot of people may tend to shy away from it and pick up a $30 pair of gloves somewhere else. Oh, and can you also send me payment info?

    Thank you Durasteel Corporation for taking this on.

    E-mail sent -- any update on this? Will these gloves be replicas from RotJ with all the alterations done, or will they be exact replicas of the Esprit glove without the modifications? I'd opt for the RotJ gloves.

    Have we gotten a price or time frame on these yet? If we don't get anything solid soon, I'm thinking of tackling this myself, but I'd have to charge a fair price if I'm going to do it from scratch. They look time consuming to put together, let alone drafting them in different sizes from reference photos alone.
