I looked through his post, but can't find where Boss says what material the name tag was from, but my wife figured it out. Oil lantern wick material. After stenciling it black and fading, that is genius as it seems as it already had the same texture.
So I think we all narrowed down the name tag material until further correction. But I will update after we append it to our coat.
New screenshot of Quints name tag from my 4k copy of the film added. (Sorry, I know it's a 4K, but it was the 70’s)
Yeah, I might not go that route, I have a pet peeve about short sleeves on my arms.
Also, I am using the M-65 Field Jacket that has Velcro and no V-cut down the sleeve.
So it will take a little work to replace the Velcro with the buttons, buttonholes, and that v cut.
Do you know what size those buttons are? Mine might be the same size as the M-65, though they are a different color.
Also, what size lantern wick material was that?
Correction: You said it was Military name tape then? I could have sworn it was wick. Let me know the dimensions if you could.
Thanks so much for your assistance. You have helped a lot of Captains on this island.
