  1. In regards to when luke changed into his fatigues, I think he’s wearing them underneath his x-wing flight suit. See the scene back on hoth where luke is suiting up and making small talk with 21-b, zipping up his flight suit when he says, “well forget the smaller units, there’s still plenty of time…”, You can see for just a moment a tan shirt, presumably his fatigues underneath. This would make sense because it’s so cold on both that it would make sense to dress in layers, and explain his easy change of wardrobe on dagobah.

    I imagine that the fatigues where probably available to luke as alliance issue which they have acquired from some military surplus source. Other rebels may have them but we didn’t get to see them with them on in an environment relevant to wearing them. Or, for all we know, some of the rebels might have been wearing those fatigues under their hoth snow suits. Those hoth suits do feature a lot of tan also..kind of a similiar fashion sense.
