Default What About Couples Who Dress Alike?

What is your reaction to couples who dress alike?

I watched Superbowl with a group of about 30 people, about evenly divided between the sexes, and all acquainted with each other. It included married as well as dating couples, singles, and attached but unaccompanied individuals. Ages ranged from mid 20's to mid 60's.

One (very) married couple wore matching casual sweaters. Nothing outlandish or gaudy; their appearance would be acceptable in most offices, classrooms, churches, or restaurants in the country. One young lady enthusiastically complimented the look, and the response was "Well, my wife makes me do it so I know which girl I'm supposed to go home with.".

What are your thoughts when you see something like that in a social setting? Is it romantic? Childish? Indifferent? Proves he's hen-pecked? Shows she's his "property"? Merely cute? Stretching the "We're a couple." point too far? Affectionate? Insulting to singles?

As a married couple, have you (or would you) do something similar?

My wife and I groan when we see this in public. Or we point and smirk. The matching outfits are usually in the poorest of taste.
And yes, beside being goofy, it does stretch the "Were a couple" point too far.

I've gone along with this when it was my granddaughter (4 years old). I'd expect a woman to grow up.

I've only seen it in sport situations, such as acouple running together with matching outfit. In this situation it's ok I think, but in a casual/ social outfit I also think it would look goofy and over romantic.

Tried it but couldn't get my wifes clothes on.....
We have twins and over the years have been involved with TAMBA as they were very prem... What I think is worse are Parents who give the twins similar names (if same sex) or names with the same initials and also dress them exactly the same.
As for couples who do it, sports events with the same supporters t-shirt or similar on yes, going out..........

how many layers deep do we want to count?

"honey, you stretched them again"

"yeah sweetie, but they feel so nice"

"get your own, then"

"not as stylish in my size"

"get over it "

My wife has a walk in closet and when she comes out it's funny how many times we have the same colour of this or that on having dressed independently.

OTOH she has suggested we wear similar outfits and I'm not much for that but remember, it's just her way of marking her territory. Better than how guys do it methinks.
