Whenever I see people dressed exactly alike, I try to imagine the logistics of getting dressed in the morning. It must take ages.

Or maybe they're so in sync that when one says “Let's wear our blue hats and green shirts today!”, the other is psyched to do it. Nonetheless, I think it reflects an eerie power dynamic. One of the pair is calling the shots.

what's interesting about this that i sort of got the feeling that they were trying to break out of the social norms yet by imitation just follow into a different or “alt” category…

What I see a lot is parents having (forcing) their poor kids to dress alike, even though they aren't twins.

Here is a flickr link that shows more people who dress alike
