    Really like both of those, @EFV and @Cleav ...

    I just came from the basted fitting of a lovely Minnis fresco suit in RAF blue (@ Cad & The Dandy) that would have been perfect for this...

    Very kind of you mate, you're a charmer :smarmy:. As said elsewhere your fit there and what you are creating with your brand and ethos is very impressive and I'll do what I can to support you!

    It occurs to me that I've worn two other qualifying fits this week. Going with the punching one, because that's more fun.

    I have a very nice olive green suit that would be perfect for this challenge, but is unfortunately still in storage back in Holland....

    Unfourtunately not so much entrants this week so I decide too use the censored spiked-helmet pics:
    I get some bonus points for the jacket (yes I know it´s a orphaned suit jacket), which is bespoke from a London tailor and the former owner was first sea lord of the royal navy.

    I'll help to flesh out the thread a bit with this fit from today, which was not put together for the challenge, but just happens to have blue and green in it.

    I'm not expecting to get many votes as I'm up against some really stellar ensembles from several other members, but at least it ups the total number to choose from.
