Sweater approval for under armor?

Would this be accepted as a under armor worn with white BDUs?  The vest will sit over it of course.  Please LMK.  Thank you.

Possibly,  but you're doing what some call 'reinventing the wheel' with it... It's not a cheap outfit, the sleeves bunch and bag, the collar/snaps aren't the greatest looking for a mando, imho... You could do better with a plain dicke top. Much cheaper too.

TBH, it's not the greatest look for a mando, even with the vest over it. It looks like typical hoodie material, which is not approvable

Roger that!  I was trying to find a 2 piece suit as flight suits are uncomfortable to me and all white ones are hard to find in Medium.  I found white BDU pants, but no tops.  Anyone where I can get the white Dickies coveralls in a Medium?

You can use a regular mock-turtle neck-type shirt, or even a white dress shirt. The thing of it is that a two-piece must be indistinguishable from a flight suit. It all boils down to material.

I wear a two-piece flight suit that consists of crease-less dress pants and two different black shirts. Once all the kit's on, you can't tell that it isn't a flight suit. Plus, think of how shabla warm full mando armor is. You'd never want to wear any fleece or sweatshirt-like material under it.

You could also try searching for 'medic'-style shirt, EMT gear and whatnot. They're usually BDU-type.

If you really need BDU type stuff, go to Galls.  I get any of my paramedic work uniform stuff (that my work doesn't provide already) from them, they have lots of cool stuff for police, fire and ems type clothing...  well that an a whole lot more   ;D lol

The downside is of course they aren't always the cheapest so if money is tight then you may just want to go with the coveralls instead.

"Once upon a time there was a mando in green,
He was short and stocky and a little mean!
He carried a BFG and wore heavy armor vest
He liked to make credits, they were the best!
Blasting and hunting were all in good fun,
Especially when the prey did try to run!
Then one day the hutt called him to do a job,
Get a nasty little genosian thief named Bob!
Found and bound fast as a blink that little bug,
He got kriffed on the creds that big fat slug!
So I shot him.  With a proton torpedo." --Bazii

Should do the trick. The shirt is much like the one I wear, I just tuck the collar inside. Once the vest and gauntlets are on, it's virtually indistinguishable from the top half of a flight suit.

I hope so...I already bought the set today.   ;D  If not, no biggie.  I will grab the coveralls from Dickie's website.

I don't see why there would be problem. The best tricks to disguise the two piece nature of the under suit is either a girth belt right around the waist, or a kama. Or, y'know, both :P. having regular pants also comes in handy; I thread my blaster/cod-piece belt through the pants' belt loops, which are better situated than the belt loops on coveralls or flight suits, in my experience. Then I wear a kama over it, hiding the belt and waist-line where the pants and shirt meet.

Also, if you have any sewing skills, or know anyone that does, you might want to just remove the collar altogether. I still wear my shirt as a dress shirt, so I keep it on, but since yours is specifically for your kit, it'd be more comfortable removed.
