Every time I see a cotton traders flyer they are full of these couples wearing his n hers clothes. Very Howard and Hilda

My mother used to do that - whole family would have matching outfits

No wonder she is now divorced

TinyGang Tue 16-May-06 13:42:14

The whole family! That's more like 'the sound of music'.

Err - no.

Do occasionally accidentally dress myself the same as DD - eg jeans and pink t-shirt.

We do this all the time, DH and I. It is one of our weekend rules, we must dress identically. We love Cotton Traders, very practical for this.

What's the problem with it?

We do by mistake on ocassion - you know the thing where you realise you're both wearing jeans and a green shirt or something - I always feel mortally embaressed and try to wear my coat!!

i also like to match in bed

The older I get, the more noticably feminine my clothing is becoming. I even wear high-heeled sandals these days. Maybe this is some desperate attempt to fight the ravages of time... dunno. So, no dp not being a transvestite, we don't dress identically.

We did for a bit whilst 'courting'. It was a bonding thing (I think).

Now, definitely not. I think it's moreinevitable the older you get, the identity thing becomes quite blurred - quite cute in a way.

Eww, no!

yumsymumsy Tue 16-May-06 20:26:13

Oh yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Me and my adorable, gorgeous man do this all the time!!!!!!!!! It's a sign of our love and affection for each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We even went to a fancy dress costume dressed the same!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mad???????? Yes we are aren't we!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BudaBabe Tue 16-May-06 20:36:23

Mercy Tue 16-May-06 20:39:23

LucyCampCat Tue 16-May-06 20:54:55

Bozza - I sometimes do that with dd2 as well! must be the mood I'm in when i get dressed, the get her clothes out too, very embarrassing at school it is too!

BettySpaghetti Tue 16-May-06 21:00:17

We've accidently worn similar things -eg blue jeans and black top and argue childishly about who should get changed ..."No, I got dressed first!"

We live in an area that attracts lots of walkers and you often see them in their His 'n Hers waterproof jackets, hiking boots and bobble hats - always pmsl

god no!

we did one time make a huge f up though..
we were at a frinds house in summer, wearing flipflops/sandals , i was in a dress, and we decided to go with them to the solstice gathering at stone henge..
we borrowed some warm clothes to change into when we got there.
then in the rain , freezing cold , at 11pm we got changed and realised we both had purple jumpers, jeans and tan coloured was horrifying!
and we had no option but to wear them..argh!

did anyone see the episode of wife swap with the woman and her dd in matching barbie pink tops and furry boots? hilarious!
