Kermit, other 'Muppets Most Wanted' stars suit up in Brooks Brothers

If you think Kermit the Frog and his nemesis Constantine look pretty dapper in Disney's  "Muppets Most Wanted," you're right.

The Muppets were dressed in part by Brooks Brothers -- right along with human costars Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell and Stanley Tucci, among others.

Brooks, whose name is synonymous with classic men's clothing, collaborated with costume designer Rahel Afiley to provide more than 200 items for male cast members including the two green ones. Among other things, the frogs were outfitted with bespoke morning suits for one pivotal scene.

"Muppets Most Wanted," which opened Friday, marks the second time Brooks Brothers has teamed with Afiley on a Muppet movie. (The first was "The Muppets" in 2011.) Brooks Brothers also provided the custom tuxedo Kermit wore to the 2013 Academy Awards.

Kermit, for one, was thrilled, according to a Brooks Brothers news release.

 “Like most amphibians, I usually work naked,” said Kermit. “But when I wear clothes, like I do in 'Muppets Most Wanted,' I love these suits. It’s very difficult to buy frog sizes off the rack, so Brooks Brothers really came to my rescue.”

And he means very difficult.  Just like it isn't easy being green, I guess.
