Thought i'd pick up where Caveatscoti left off. Here's a male officer's uniform. The bobby helmet has always worked, so if it ain't broke, don't fix it. I thought that a little colour in the uniform could help...

I guess you guys tell me where he might keep his truncheon?

hehe! 40mins PSCS2

OK, A little bit of a futuristic look with the helmet and built in visor. A little bit old American west with modified duster coat and a little bit dandy with the walking-stick/billy club.

Managed to stay right around the 60 minute mark.
