Double Trouble

Matching is something I've always had a phobia of. I never AIM instant messaged the girls in high school to make sure we all wore skirts on Tuesday, I was always a little creeped out by the Olsen twins' series in which they solved the mysteries in coordinating outfits, and the main reason I am so attracted to thrifting is because the chances that the other girl at the corner bodega also wearing my shear gold jacket is exponentially less than if I was wearing a graphic tee from Uniqlo.

All that being said, imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon this power duo at Jen Ray's gallery opening in Chelsea and didn't immediately turn to gag.

I noticed the first half on one end of the gallery and couldn't keep my eyes off his studded satchel and medieval garb. When I found a second studded satchel not 10 minutes later, I had to say something. The chances that two men put on studded satchels of similar design out of complete coincidence was too strange. Even in this city. It turns out they are brothers with similar closets and they don't mind it one bit.

While they each have a slightly different style, it's obvious that they are both 100% WeirdoChic.
