HAS there ever been an outfit Sacha Baron Cohen balked at wearing? The green thong in “Borat”? The vinyl suit in his new movie, “Brüno”? The naked knit suit (too anatomically correct to reveal here) from the film, which also made an appearance at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin? The question was posed to Jason Alper, who, for the last 12 years, has been designing clothes for Mr. Cohen’s assorted personas, and the answer was no.
