BOWMAN MP Andrew Laming has injected some levity and printed flowers into what was likely to be the final question time in Parliament before the federal election is called.
Striking out in a floral-print shirt, Mr Laming was interrupted over his attire while asking a Dorothy Dixer of Treasurer Josh Frydenberg.
Opposition members called out that Mr Laming's shirt was from 1989 and went with mullet hairstyles.
Speaker Tony Smith told Opposition members that he understood the issue but had recovered from the sight of Mr Laming's attire.
"I think you should have as well," he said.
Mr Frydenberg took up the theme saying that he was glad Mr Laming was wearing a shirt from 1989, the year Labor last delivered a surplus.
"It was 30 years ago," Mr Frydenberg said.
"The Berlin Wall was still standing, The Simpsons had their first episode, and I had a mullet.
"They were the days."
Mr Laming said his choice of attire was taken in good humour, with some people suggesting he auction it to the highest bidder to raise money for a good cause.
"I have heard that parliamentary staff are considering raiding my office to search for similar attire and that people have questioned whether the shirt fits in with the business attire dress code requirement of Parliament," Mr Laming said.
"I think that it is skating fairly close to the edge."
Mr Laming warned that he had an array of similarly loud garments in his closet.
The Bowman MP has made headlines for his antics inside and outside of Parliament.
In 2015 he was kicked out of Parliament for 24 hours for taking in flammable cruise liner fuel and pouring it on his hands during a speech.
The previous year he sculled a beer while doing a handstand at an Australia Day barbecue.
