Dye another day

Post by Chuck Williams » Thu Jun 27, 2019 4:05 pm

Hi All,

We just received the production sample of our custom dyed batsuit fabric aptly named "WS2 Grey" from the fabric manufacturer!

I could not be more happy with it!
It is similar to the Baltogs Supplex in weight but is smoother, a better stretch and less grabby.

I washed a sample in warm water and high heat dryer and got 0 color loss.

Best of all it is a great match to the samples we had next to an original tunic owned by our friend Mark Hardeman. The fabric with the emblem was matched to the original tunic and the fabric on top is our new fabric...

It's being loaded on the ship this week and will be in the shop in 4-6 weeks!!!

Soon, RIT will be a thing of the past!!! At least in our shop....

Chuck...

Beautiful stuff- as long as we're punning on my least favorite iteration of the Bond series, how about a series of posts on your amazing Serial suit version? The Wool Is Not Enough.

Great stuff, looks fantastic and will make your production much easier!...so how about another movie title... maybe... "Live Free or Dye Hard"

Can't wait Chuck! My previous attempts at matching this color with a mixture of RIT colors have been unsatisfactory. Really looking forward to finally having the correct shade!

Same fabrics but different lighting and camera settings...
I'm liking the range of colors... Looking pretty authentic...

On the plus side, those colors are reading so, so well!

On the down side...I keep ending up with that darn Madonna/Bond song back in my head 😑😂
