Couple crap!

26 12 2009

I’m not sure if we’ve mentioned it before but the Chinese couples are really into wearing matching outfits. I mean, REALLY into. There is a whole genre of store that has t shirts and sweatshirts in multiple sizes so that you and your significant other can get matching ones-
and they’re aren’t cheap! Some of the stores even have small sizes so the whole fan damily can declare that they belong together.

Primo example #1- Sexy couple jackets. Notice that these two are cool, young Chinese people. Nerds might do it too, but it’s hip to have a matching wardrobe.

Jeremiah and I are intrigued by this idea but aren’t ready to go ‘all the way’, if you will. We stuck a toe into the couple clothing abyss a month ago when I found COUPLE MITTENS at the Sanfu (The Forever 21 of China. Their tagline is “Let the youth enjoy their stylish life easily!” is on shopping bags everywhere.)

Primo example #2- They say, “If music be the food of love. play on” Mine are the white ones, Jeremiah’s are a manly brown.

There were many others with subtle messages like a key on the dude’s mitten and a lock on the lady’s. Ew.

People, so far we have spotted couple shirts, couple coats, couple mittens, couple keychains, couple sweaters, and couple hats. I have no doubt there is more that we just haven’t picked up on yet.

For Christmas, Sara, my ‘teaching assistant’/poor lackey gave us couple hats. Holy crap. We wore them on Christmas Eve for our little shindig.

Primo example #Christmas- I’m a panda, Jeremiah is a eared animal with the character for Tiger (next year is the year of the Tiger.) This picture is our only documentation of their existence but I think it won’t be the last!

I like the couple gloves…vote is out on the hats. Reminds me of the baby hats at Halloween for costumes for infants!

Chris just said Wow with increasing volume at each pic. I think this means there will be matching outfits in our near future!
