He considered the earrings, but thought it would look too matchy-matchy.

    Looooove the earrings!! I think I had those! How sad!!

  3. The Anti Boop says:

    haha…where are they now???

  4. Ackward says:

    Oh, early ’90s…how cruel you were to the eyes. I bet he drove an Iroc.
    Also, we know that’s not late ’80s because they’re not wearing acid-washed jeans, so that’s something to be thankful for.

  5. Amy says:

    Is this seriously an engagement picture? They’re like, 10.

  6. Penny D. says:

    My goodness, I miss the early 90’s.

    From the lesser known sequel, “Ferris Bueller’s Matching Wardrobe”.

  8. Poetikat says:

    Where are they now? Well, he’s wearing the ear-rings THESE days!

  9. emm says:

    between these two and the denim twins, i dont know which one is more awkward. too bad someone didnt photoshop them all together…

  10. Clucky says:

    bet they met while shopping for those shirts and it was love at first site…love me, love my shirt!

  11. Nick says:

    you those pant legs are tucked and rolled, with slouchy socks and hi top Reeboks on!!!

  12. Bryna says:

    I think they purchased the sweatshirts at the Seaside Heights boardwalk…

  13. Penny says:

    You just gotta love the 80’s!

  14. Lola LB says:

    At least he’s cute and can carry it off . . .

  15. Terry says:

    Check out the matching outfits while the DJ revolves it.

  16. Mat says:

    Hey yo Stop! Hesitate and Listen! Awkward is back with a whole new edition!

  17. Chickadee says:

    I’d like to think that’s a slap bracelet on her right wrist…just to complete the picture of late ’80s-early 90’s fashion faux pas.

  18. Bdiddy says:

    Nothing says true love like matching sweatshirts and hair.

  19. beato says:

    Why? Just why? Can someone answer that simple question?

  20. josie says:

    Ice Ice maybe….. but again, I see a little Dylan and Brenda here. This looks like it could have been taken the first season of 90210. She was kinda dorky then, and Dylan was soooo in love! I am getting soooooooooo old:) Why do I remember such things?

  21. Sarah says:

    Gotta love the 80s. They knew what fun really was! xD

  22. Laura says:

    matching sweatshirts = true love, right? Right???

  23. Julie says:

    I think they’re homemade. Either way, it’s just the way the sleeve pattern piece was laid down on the fabric. They weren’t put in identical places. It’s still creepy, though.

  24. Sara says:

    Word to your mutha!

  25. Riley says:

    So is it a male or female shirt?

  26. It’s so nice to get a picture of the twins together again!

  27. Insanewiches says:

    The ’89 5.0 Rag Top is waiting outside the photo studio!

  28. Cee says:

    I wonder if they bought enough material to have shirts made up for any future kids?

  29. Fanboy Wife says:

    I have a sneaking suspicion that they have matching underwear too…

  30. Don says:

    I suddenly have this overwhelming urge to play Tetris

  31. zonk says:

    ha, my boyfriend in high school refused to get our picture taken together unless we dressed the same. Despite the fact ‘everyone’ did it I could tell it looked dumb.

    • brooke says:

      is there some point in time (the 80s) when this was considered a good idea?
      but in high school!? i thought that didnt happen until well into retirement when its just easier to buy the same souvenior t-shirts

  32. Jules says:

    “Honey, I can’t find my blue shirt with the squares.”
    “That’s OK, sweetie, you can just wear mine.”

  33. binkymae says:

    Very “Saved by the Bell”!

  35. yolinda says:

    hehehehe matchy-matchy…. havn’t heard that one since clothing fights with my sis when we were little… :]

  36. Stellabella says:

    Very attractive couple-I am sure it sounded like a good idea initially…

  37. Julie says:

    Engagement Photo??!! He’s wearing a wedding ring…

    I think someone lost a bet, and had to wear matching clothes… and a hateful aunt picked out the outfits…

    Have you got a better explanation?

  38. Just an observer says:

    Taking on the brangelina’s and benifer’s of the world. If we stand real close together in matching attire, no one will notice we’re 2 separate people…

  39. PJB says:

    I think they are made from a swimming pool liner.

  40. lexi278 says:

    I smell Sadie Hawkins

  41. John D says:

    “We like to call these our ‘Triple-Word-Score’ shirts.”

  42. KatieMB says:

    Aww I remember doing that kind of matchy-match thang with my BF. But I don’t remember doing it with such horrendously awkward shirts.

  43. I feel like these two are Old Navy Mannequins…from 1988.

  44. HansMoleman says:

    Word to your mother.

  45. tillman says:

    Collaborate and listen.

  46. madame ruby says:

    Does the title refer to the ice cube pattern on the sweatshirts…or HIM? I think that really is Vanilla Ice, age 18! Wow, one from the vaults. What a find.

  47. laurie says:

    Their matchy-matchy is killing my brain like a poisonous mushroom.

  48. Jessica says:

    can you believe they were late for this photo after getting their shirts mixed up

  49. Her sweatshirt is different. Look on the sleeve. They both have the line of squares going down, but the line of squares going across are in different places. His is further down, and hers is further up. His must be a bigger size…
