You could ... but generally you don't and the next guy gets to pick what to run with.
For example, last Monday, PeeJay posted
Match official backing law cap (7)

Which was "FERRULE", a type of cap used at the end of laces and so on.
PKFox then went with
Maybe a bitter top (7)

For "BIRETTA" - "a square cap with three flat projections on top, worn by Roman Catholic clergymen" a different type of "cap", and it stayed with headgear (probably because there is only so far you can go with metal tips of laces as far as a theme goes!)

But thinking about possible themes is a good idea - if you end up with a complicated clue that means "ANTIDISESTABLISHMENTARIANISM" or "FLOCCINAUCINIHILIPILIFICATION" and we don't get it, then you are stuck with trying to theme that on Tuesday ... Laugh | :laugh:
