These look great. Arguably their most iconic look and how they are likely remembered in the US.

It's a good design.
If you look at all of the magazine covers and promotional photos of PSB in the 80s, these outfits are the sum average out of all of them. The classic Neil curly-on-top hairstyle, an overcoat and tie. And Chris with a cap and shades, complete with his "street" style of dressing.
I was thinking about it a few weeks ago, Neil has to have a microphone and Chris a keyboard.
I was close to making a mock up sketch of what the designs should look like, because I've been looking at PSB photos from magazines and really the one most common image is the outfits I've described above.
I was wondering how they'd do the keyboard though. Smart choice to have a keytar. Chris has obviously performed with one on several occasions.

Also I like how the BOY hat is changed to PSB.
Honestly the design overall is like they took it from my imagination and made it slightly better. I'm happy with the design.
Interesting to me how the box art incorporates Super and Introspective.
I'll post photos of the final product (when they're released obviously) if no one else does first. Who knows how dark Chris' sunglasses look in real life.

If they sell well surely they will make more of them. Other artists have got different eras made?

I don't mind them but I find it very off-putting that Chris looks so alert, and that Neil looks so non-plussed... Obviously it should be the other way around.
