The joking comment in response to this original question

Would the Picard Maneuver work in the Star Wars universe?


Sure, tugging on either side of your uniform shirt to straighten it should work for any universe. :)

But would it?

Have we actually seen something approximating a long-sleeved T-shirt in Star Wars?

(Of course the reason this question even makes sense is that for the most part, it appears that Star Wars characters appear in robes, tunics or armor)

  • Shouldn't any of the Imperial Officers uniforms count? or are you calling those jackets and not t-shirts so they do not fit your criteria?

  • @Skooba, most of them look like they are attached to the pants or extend way past the belt, so no need to be pulled down. Oct 28, 2016 at 1:01

Does the base layer of a Storm Trooper's uniform count?

  • assuming this is the same undergarment from his armor, probably not. Stormtrooper armor undergarments are a "new skin, a tough black body glove that seal[s] itself as [the wearer] climbs in" - source: Twilight Company: Battlefront (new canon book). We can likely presume that this same garment is similar or better now w/ the First Order

    Whatever this is, it appears the Picard maneuver could be performed on it, so that gets an upvote. (and adding another picture) Oct 27, 2016 at 16:31

    Playing devil's advocate here, that is tucked in, so for all we know it's a bodysuit. Oct 27, 2016 at 14:43
  • It can't be a bodysuit, they wear them in the future. Oct 27, 2016 at 15:42

    @ThePopMachine - This is a space western. It's far more likely to be long johns.

  • @Valorum- space opera - so it's more likely to be the chambermaid's undergarment

Luke in the Return of the Jedi-his shirt was long-sleeved and all black. From the moment he removes his robe in the rancor pit, all the way to the ending.
