you could try manofwarstudios for a nice 2 piece boba flight suit or if you go to the dented helmet arkady used to make accurate boba flight suits tailored to your measurements boba maker does a really high end flight suit it all depends on your budget. hope this helps. ;)

There are 2 commercial  patterns for coveralls that can be adapted for a Mandalorian Flight Suit, Green Pepper #142 and KwikSew #3389. Both will require a decent amount of modification to be made to work. If you want a screen accurate flight suit, do not even think about using the first pattern start with the Kwik-Sew  and go from there. You can also take a standard shirt and trouser pattern, grade the waist of the shirt to match the trouser waist, then raise the trouser waist by 2-3" and connect them.

Green Pepper #142.
  • Very easy pattern to sew.
  • High collar
  • front closes to neck
  • Uses set in semi-raglan sleeve design without conventional armhole
  • Impossible to make a screen accurate flight suit without re-drafting the pattern

Kwik-Sew #3389
  • Alter collar from lay down to standing. (easy)
  • Alter Lapels to straight placket front (easy)
  • Add Center Back seam (Easy)
  • Remove Back Yoke and transfer yoke ease to center back seam (moderate)
  • Eliminate breast pockets (easy)
  • Raise the Armhole and Reduce sleeve volume (moderate to hard) 
            Option 1 use smaller size armhole transposed to larger size (moderate), taper sleeves
            Option 2 Redraw armhole and draft new sleeve (for the brazen, brave or highly skilled)
  • Add short outer sleeve. (easy or moderate depending on which armhole option you choose)
  • Eliminate slash pockets at hip (easier than you think)
  • Eliminate Back Pockets (easy)
  • Add desired hip pouches, Shin Pockets etc.
