I know I've read something about his somewhere... but I simply can't find the thread...

I'm trying to find a suitable fabric for Deckard's blazer (doing a full mannequin display). I believe that it's been well established that the fabric is somekind of wool/tweed (silk?) herringbone. But he color is tricky...

How do you even see the color? Umber? Orange?



What do you think about these options...

Option 1:



Option 2:



Option 3:

Option one looks the obvious choice but nothings obvious with BR costume colours and its harder with in tight pictures but I`d go with option three.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts Very Happy

I'm leaning towards option 1 or 3... 2 is not bright enough I think.... Option 1 is sold as "Orange" Shocked

I would go with option 3...but again, a small surface sample will always look darker than a very large one.

Two votes for 3 I have to take that into consideration when I chose the fabric

Then I would go for #1 and trying to tone-down the color.

Yes, that's the solution I'm leaning towards now... but I'll think that I'll wait to purchase any and search for a fabric similar to no. 3....

Like it. The surface has a texture about it that`s much closer to the original.
