Omaha, Nebraska, couple Mel and Joey Schwanke have been married 65 years, and for more than half of that, they’ve been dressing alike. The pair started wearing the same clothes while on a vacation 35 years ago, and decided to make it “their thing.” They credit the success of their incredibly long union to their sartorial sensibilities. The pair have 146 custom-made outfits — Mel’s tie always matches Joey’s dress — and they can often be seen wearing their matching looks at the flower shop they own together.
“We kind of decided early in the game that he would be boss from 8 to 5, and I would be boss from 5 to 8 the next morning,” explained Joey. [Daily Mail]
Tell us: Do you and your partner dress alike? On purpose?
Happy couple Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon keep getting photographed in identical outfits. It’s like they’re going to the senior prom every day. Honestly, what is it with couples that dress alike?

Show the world you both really are a match by wearing different clothes. [DListed] Keep reading »
