Watching Flight of the Conchords the other night I was struck by just how many comedy retro jumpers Bret McKenzie wears. From ’80s sweatshirts with Arctic wolves and pine trees to snowflake pattern woolly nan jumpers the Kiwi comedian has got his bases covered.
What can we say? We do try our best here on Brandish and every so often an iconic-well-dressed-mega-major-celeb pays attention.
