Mystery solved:

Taylor Hanson: No, this is leather, leather. That right there is a baby cow. That is an entire baby cow. PETA is about to call me; they’re going to come to my house. I am a fan of good leather.

Isaac Hanson: Was that John Cirpess or Lord’s or somebody?

Taylor: It wasn’t Lord’s… It’s terrible, I don’t remember the name of the designer… It was a small boutique downtown. You basically need to have a couple thousand dollars to throw at your look. We had a really good friend who helped us do some styling. She essentially would knock on as many doors as possible and say, “Hey, do you wanna dress these guys?” I love that jacket too — that’s a fantastic jacket. Still have it too.

Zac: I’m not sure if Taylor’s defending himself or attacking me.

Taylor: This is what happened: We were standing there in London, at Trafalgar Square. Zac was standing probably over here and did one of those, “Hey, guys!”

Zac: You may think it’s Taylor grabbing, pulling me, but it’s actually Taylor trying to save himself from falling.

Taylor: I’m being victimized by Zac.

Taylor: The truth is, the stripes, that was such a thing. There are some key style choices. I’m like, “Hey, I’m playing sports here but I’m really loose here.” Isaac’s more like, training in his tracksuit.
