I've never noticed it either, but I know my eyes were drawn elsewhere. :lol:

Neither have I. :shock:
What a detailed... detail to pick up on.
Maybe someone should making him a natty man-bag as a gift, all in the aid of stream-lined limbs. :wink:

Bret's hat - found via Ancient Industries, a purveyor of old-fashioned stuff.

I liked the variety of looks Bret sported during last year's tour. This year, I think they may have been allowed only one carry-on, eh? :? And the Devil Woman garb took up space that could have gone to more suits. Must have more suits, Bret! :hammer: (And animal tees, and...... :P )

That hat Bret wears is a classic Greek fishermen's hat: worn by dormant Libertarians, political science professors, and other eccentrics the world over. And yeah, by Greek fishermen, too.

Heh. Exhibit B is pretty much the very quick view I had of him in the hat. :lol: (sorry Nonch) :worry:

It's OK, indigo. Really. I'll get over it....someday.... probably... :lol: ( :tears: ) :lol: ( :cross: ) :lol:


I LOVE the hat. :whitey: Nice find, bibli. I think a few more examples might be in order, and not at all superfluous.... :wink: ....though I am quite impressed with the large, exquisite exhibits provided by Venus. Didn't you view the hat with your own peepers too, V? (Just like Indigo?... *grumble, grumble* )



I just saw this pic in a magazine and Ms. Blanchett's dress was instantly my favorite at Cannes....then I realized why. :D

Love the hat too :D He wore it in Bergen as well and I agree that it goes well with the curls. (I generally don't approve of too much hat wearing though...It seems to go hand in hand with hair loss :roll: But I don't know whether it's the cause or effect. It's very much a chicken and egg situation :lol: )

Love Cate's dress! :D Maybe I'll get mum to sew me one inspired by one of the other shirts. The mice one maybe. That would be classy 8)

:nod: Yep, I got very close to the hat. ;) Both of the pics I posted were taken at the M&G after their Birmingham gig. Exhibit A is from the pic onlyalways took of me and Bret and Exhibit B is from a pic I took of him during the M&G. Don't worry nonch, I bet the next time you meet Bret will be magical, whether he decides to wear a hat for the occasion or not. ;)

:waggle: I hope you are correct, Venus. And I hope you are incorrect about the hat thing, biscuit. :lol: If your mum makes the mousetrap dress, can I borrow it for dates? When I need to look really cool?

Ooooo Flyday! :yay:

Sure you can, reckon you would score in no time :wink:

ETA: I need the Flyday thread to be open for one reason only, to steal and post one of your Flickr pics, Nonch. It is UNbelievably swoon worthy, even for a non swooner like myself :halo:
