    IRL, the base color for the SC is a light olive green.

    I also went with olive. Since I didn't find any regimental striped tie with green in it, I thought olive would be the second best choice for military inspired colour scheme. New 3 piece linen suit that I ordered for Pitti, will need a new pressing before I go though.

    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....
