"Arrested Development" cast members David Cross and Portia de Rossi discuss their favorite pieces of clothing from the show -- and hypothesize what a female "never nude" might wear -- in a video posted to YouTube on Monday.

The video, which runs slightly more than five minutes, consists of the actors answering Twitter-submitted fan questions about the show, starts with Jessica Walter, who plays boozy matriarch Lucille Bluth, answering questions about her character's signature one-eye wink, her proclivity for potable breakfasts and whether the "Lucille" name or the "loose seal" jokes came first.

In the second part of the clip, Cross and De Rossi, who play husband and wife Tobias Fünke and Lindsay Bluth Fünke, talk about their favorite outfits (he particularly liked a T-shirt with the word "Shemále" across the front, her favorite was the "slut" tee) and offer a couple of hilarious suggestions in response to the question: "What would a female never nude wear?"

We won't spoil it, but the one brand that gets hilariously name-checked? That would be L.A.-based American Apparel.
