Original Luke Skywalker Ceremonial Jacket

The costume in the collection of ScienceFictionArchives.com is the original well known ceremonial jacket that Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) wears at the end of Star Wars : Episode IV A New Hope, after destroying the Death Star and saving the Rebel base from a horrific fate. Based on a designed by John Mollo, the production used a famous racing style jacket that can be spotted on other characters in other colors in the movie. The same brand of racing style jackets was also used for Sci-Fi TV series Space 1999, as Moon Base Alpha jackets. It's an iconic object and one of the most important of ScienceFictionArchives.com.

A little known fact about this jacket is that similar jackets were used for the Walrusman and Greedo costumes. The Walrusman costume uses an orange version of this jacket, while Greedo's shirt is made from a version of this jacket with a modified collar and the zipper removed from the front. If you look at a photo of Greedo, you'll see the same ribbing on the sleeves. Also, the jackets worn by the snowspeeder and X-Wing pilots in Empire Strikes Back are the same style as this Luke Ceremony jacket (with a modified collar).
