Interesting concept. Oddly enough, it seems all the Imperial (black flight suit) variations share this trait. Imperial Crewman, TIE-Reserve, TIE-Pilot and Imperial Gunner all end their bling at the belt.It feels like it's a little flat on the bottom half; maybe stuff some items in the thigh pockets?
Definitely something to think about as we evolve the design. Most of this is off the shelf from various sources that I have adapted. For example the flak vest is the standard white one that I used a combination of gunmetal and metallic paint to change the colors. It turned out really well I think and has a very used look to it which I like.I think it would really add to the concept if you had a chest box that was similar to the current design but done in the colors of a TIE chest box (Black, some red buttons, black hose, etc...)
