Rick is currently the CEO of the opensourceconsortium in the UK.

I'm sure he'll have no problems in giving you details of the tux suit - I can get in contact if you like?

I'll see if I can find out.  I went to a business networking event last 
year and there was a guy in a Tux suit who funnily enough is a big 
supporter of Linux in Devon.

The business was Adaptive IT, I think the director was called Rick 
Timmis, their web site is here: http://www.adaptive-it.co.uk/index.html
