Nancy Featherstone sewed her future husband Donald a short-sleeved shirt about thirty-five years ago. After they were married, she kept making him shirts and began to stitch matching shirts for herself. Soon, she was making her husband and herself complete matching outfits, and they now have four wardrobes of matching, coordinated clothing.
Nancy recently told The Guardian that the outfits have brought them closer together. They wore the matchy-patchy coordinates even when he used to travel for business. In fact, they have an entire closet dedicated to flamingo patterned clothing, because Donald created the pink plastic flamingo in 1957. I suppose that constitutes mixing business with pleasure. You must be the judge of that.
As hokey as this might seem, I think it’s cute and really sweet, though I wouldn’t do it. It works for them. Who am I to judge?
