1959: Matching Family Outfits For Christmas

I’m fairly sure most children would rather die than wear matching family sweaters, such as these advertised in the 1959 Daily Globe by Wolff’s. It’s not that they’re bad, it’s just that you’d be matching your parents, which would probably cause the world to come to an end or something.

Nonetheless, I’m fairly sure these sweaters were worn for lots of family portraits that year.

    My Mom, Dad and two brothers and I all had matching shirts that we wore on vacation. I thought it was the best thing ever. Of course I was in the first grade.

    I never would have minded matching my mom (and in fact, occasionally, we do match) because she’s stylin’.

    My dad, though… well, now that I’m older I appreciate Hawaiian shirts more.

    Also, there’s the issue that my family isn’t all built the same way, so nothing that looks good on one of us will look good on anyone else. I call it the Bridesmaid Effect.
