This set of four standing men depicts one wearing an Inverness cape and deer stalker, one wearing an overcoat with an Astrakhan collar and bowler hat, a gentleman in a suit and bowler, and a police constable. They could quite easily be used to represent Holmes, Watson, Le Strade and a Police Constable. The Inverness cape should be tweed as should be the deer stalker. His trousers too could be tweed, but equally he could wear grey, blue, brown or green. As the dress is informal, brown shoes are recommended. To finish him off, he needs a walking stick, again, because it is informal wear, a brown stick would be appropriate. The man in the coat and bowler is in more formal wear. The coat should be navy blue, the collar black. His scarf would quite possibly be light grey. The trousers would be pinstripe. His gloves and shoes black. The Gladstone bag would be battered brown leather with brass fittings. The man in the suit and bowler, who could be used as Inspector Le Strade, could be painted in a black jacket and pinstripe or in a suit of matching material. For example, brown, grey or dark blue. He could also be portrayed wearing tweeds. His shoes would be black or brown, depending on the colour of the suit. However, if he were to be painted wearing brown, green or tweed, then the bowler should be brown; otherwise black. To complete him, he should have a stick made from wire. This should be ebony if wearing pinstripes and black jacket, or if in a navy blue suit, otherwise it should be wood. He may be painted wearing gloves or not, black for formal wear, brown for informal. The police constable should be entirely navy blue. Buttons, collar numbers, the number in the centre of the helmet plate and the snake clasp on the belt should be silver. His belt should be black leather. It would be a comparatively simple matter to convert him into a PC of an earlier period by carefully removing the back of the helmet, then cutting it down and altering it into a kepi.
