Yep - this is what I think. Cut Kenobi most likely.

Thanks mate, it is on auction it is not mine. Now I will not try to buy it, thanks for the warning. Another buyer will get angry when he learn it is fake.

Here's a pic of one I had a while ago. Hopefully it will give you more of an idea about the correct colour and the cross-hatching.

It's not right and as metioned looks like a cut Kenobi cape, look at how rough the edges are, someone has made a pigs ear of it.

Thanks mate, it does not look like yours. Thanks for the help.

The auction is here and I will not bid on it.

Mark's right about how rough the collar is, must have cut it down to make it look the same shape. Also the blaster doesn't look good although maybe it's a Tri Logo one but I wouldn't trust it. I think it's some very clever posing to make the arm holes look tight as well, I'm thinking this seller can't be trusted at all.
