    Idk if they did this on purpose, they must have, but both of their outfits PERFECTLY match their characteristics. Rhett’s shirt is the color of his beard and hair. Link’s shirts are blue and white and it matches his eyes which are very blue and his hair...which is very white lol it’s not a bad thing but🤷🏽‍♂️ just sayin

    Rhett's beard is highly attractive. He looks like could kick your butt but would do it while eating a donut and laughing at his own humor.
