The collapse of the Empire seems to have been especially hard on dress codes, as eagle-eyed fans of “The Mandalorian” spotted someone definitely out of uniform in the latest episode.
As Mando and crew invade an old Imperial base in “Chapter 12: The Siege,” someone can be seen pressed up against a wall decked out in jeans, a T-shirt and a wristwatch.
Not exactly common attire a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.
It was likely a crew member doing a poor job of keeping out of the shot, and it happens at about 18:54 in the episode, which debuted on Disney+ last week:
It brings to mind the infamous “Game of Thrones” scene in which someone left a coffee cup in view of the cameras.
And it didn’t escape fans of “The Mandalorian” on social media:

Got a screen shot of the extra crew member in this week's The #Mandalorian. Didn't realize they wore blue jeans in a galaxy far, far away.
Found at 18:54.https://t.co/yxjNfsxnsb pic.twitter.com/jv1Olgyv0p

What if the crew member in a green shirt & blue jeans became a running gag in the Mandalorian? Just once every episode they're randomly on the edge of the screen. 🤷♂️ https://t.co/EvdjOychdA
