:lol: Cute. His beard is good. :heart:


I think Bret probably couldn't wear his classic shirt and tie during the 2010 Tour, due to all the 'Lady Gaga' type costume changes. Tragic, because I do love to see him in a shirt and tie...cufflinks...pocket square...the whole nine yards...but I reckon the lion spandex was worth it.


And Venus? Your gorgeous, sixy Jem avatar is making me feel like I've done something terribly wrong. It's a bit unnerving, I must say. *gulp*

I'm sorry, Jemaine. I told you I was sorry. :worry:

OMG! The last one is horrible!

Seeing as you didn't open the thread until Friday was technically over here in Norway, and I really should get some sleep, couldn't you keep it open a bit longer? E.g. the amount of hours past since Friday started in Australia until you actually opened the thread? On Sunday I'll be watching the Azzuri showing the All Whites how football is really played :D

:lol: As well as being sixy, it does look as though Jemaine is giving quite a stern look. Maybe that's how he'll look like being a villian in MIB 3? ;)

OK, we'll see biscuit. ;)

I think thet the bag isn't that "Bret style".
They could have chosen one with an animal print :lol:

I think pairing a bag with the hair helmet is a bit much....one or the other would do.

:lol:

The original blurb on Jezebel.com wisely opined that, "Bret McKenzie did it better..." There are more here: Source :shock:

I think they're only available in Kazakhstan though. :wink:




And Stephanie Taylor (@s_taylor14) tweeted this:

Does Bret McKenzie get credit for starting this trend? http://t.co/6y2RFYg

I want some.

:rolls: OMG, no. :lol: I love the pic of the model on the catwalk with the wolf sweater! And the giant German Shepherd head! :rolls: So I guess it's only logical that next will be gloves that look like real hands, or maybe leather suits three sizes too small. :lol:

I was in a pub around the corner from where I live a couple of nights ago and I spotted Brets stripey top going into the mens toilets. As soon as I saw the guy come out I ran over to him and asked where he got the it, hoping it had just come into one of the irish based clothes company's. But alas, he said he had had it for years and bought it in H&M in england. He knew all about it being a 'Bret' top though as he's a big FotC fan, but was adamant that he had it before Bret did!
