Sorry, I made a mess of this i have to reply to myself. Anyway this is the real colour of the nostromo crew jacket as in the film "ALIEN" its an old pre 1965 RAF MK3 jacket and before NATO standardisation. The colour is purple taupe.

I don't think the wardrobe department dyed any of these jackets but these pictures might help people trying to get the colour including myself, as these jackets are rare.[/img]

Nothing secret here, it's not a "Fight Club" board...

Wait to see the Weylan yutani wing patches Jeff has created for himself... The more screen-accurate ALIEN patches I've ever seen !!! Very cool...
