I meant "custom job" - i.e. bespoke pants with a uniform coat.

Are you sure it's a "uniform"? Looks like a custom jobbie pants with regular uniform coat to me.

comment Any notable battles fought with steel vs. bronze weapons?
However, that said, if you'd be willing to expand on your answer, I'd accept it. Particularly in context of Charles' Aug 31 quote.

Maybe; it's certainly an example where one army had iron/steel, the other bronze. But while it was an intensive (though indecisive) battle, it sounds like it was more of a chariot battle and it's unclear what role if any the weapon metals made.
