(ABC NEWS) -- No need to adjust your glasses.

Donald and Nancy Featherstone, of Fitchburg, Mass., are indeed wearing matching outfits in every one of these photos, and have been for the past 35 years. It all started when they began dating and Nancy convinced Donald to loosen up.

“When I met Donald, he had been raised very formally,”

Nancy, 60, told ABCNews.com. “He always wore a suit and tie.” One brutally hot weekend, Nancy suggested he take his tie off and she’d make him a short-sleeved shirt to wear instead.

Over the years, Nancy started making more clothes for Donald, and with the leftover fabric, she’d make matching outfits for herself as well. Now, everything down to their pajamas matches, and it’s been that way since Easter of 1978.

“We have an eight room house with only the two of us in it, and all of the closets are full,” Nancy joked. (Fun fact: Donald Featherstone, 77, is also well-known for creating the original pink lawn flamingo in 1957).
