China – Wearing matching clothes – ‘Doublers’

While travelling around China we witnessed a very strange phenomena. The practice of couples and sometimes even entire families wearing the same t-shirts, shirts and sometimes even entire outfits. I understand it is meant to be a sign of affection and closeness.

We nicknamed purveyors of this odd practice ‘doublers’ and took great pleasure seeing how many ‘doublers’ we could spot as we were travelling around.

Here’s a few splendid examples of ‘doubling’ in action:
