A minor fun discussion, what warrior throughout the ages do you think was the best dressed of all time?
This could mean...they look sexy...or cool...or kickass...or simply that the dress was very efficient.
Preferably choose only one.

Personally I've got to say that the best looking warrior of all time was the Polish winged hussars, with their shiny metal armour, fancy winged helmets, leopard-skin drapery, and those beautiful wings on their back...who can beat that kind of glamour and kickassness?

I thought you meant a specific person. This will be much easier.
The classical Greeks had such awesome helms and armour. I choose them.

best dressed, eh?

late 17th century officers.
these ones are the high class ones.

the second and the first are officers. the third and fourth are just musketeers

Well, I used to like Spartans, I used to like Knights in plate armour....but now, the most kickass and best looking soldiers are late roman ones for me.

The best dressed warriors could be those of the Napoleonic Wars: cuirassiers, hussars, chasseurs. Those uniforms are awesome.

Nope, coolest warriors ever were the vikings
And despite all terrible things they did, SS officers looked pretty cool also
Third on my ladder is roman centurio
And, of course, French musketeer

does "gay fictional paladin" fit into "throughout the ages"? I don't think so.

Well, I can't find any good pics of Paladins, because WoW corrupts my search for anything decent.

No Asians?
Lovely.
To be honest the Asians have absolutely the worst military fashion sense the world has ever seen.
oh really? well, the japanese and the chinese wore some crazy stuff into battle, but to dismiss asia as a whole like this is ridiculous. Again, persians, namely Sassanids wore stuff the norman knights "discovered" centuries later.
