Their nicknames rhyme and their clothes match. Meet Mr. Bon and Mrs. Pon, a couple from Japan who are taking over Instagram with their perfectly coordinated outfits.

"Since we both have gray hair, we thought it'd be funny to match our fashion styles, so we started wearing clothes of the same color and patterns," Mrs. Pon told BuzzFeed.

Even though the couple's account has grown tremendously since our last publication about it (they have 830K followers now), Mrs. Pon said they don't have any strict wardrobe rules. It's just teamwork. "We decide based on how we feel each day. We like monotones, red and blue, so inevitably we decide on colors we both like."

The playful images, taken with an iPhone mounted on a tripod, also portray the pleasure Mr. Bon and Mrs. Pon (otherwise known as Tsuyoshi and Tomi Seki) derive from each other's company, decades after the college sweethearts married.

They have their daughter to thank for their unlikely internet fame, Mrs. Pon told the Guardian from their home in the northeastern city of Sendai. "She took photos of us and posted them on her own Instagram account. She received lots of comments so suggested that we start our own account."

Nice thing to do I guess but having to plan your outfits for each and every day to have matching characteristics must become a drain after all this time. But if they enjoy it, each to your own.

These two have always had similar tastes in clothes but now they are taking it to another level. "It's not just about coordinating our clothes," Mr. Bon explained. "We try to choose outfits that complement our surroundings."

Much of their wardrobe comes from Uniqlo and other high street chains but they believe it's the no-frills approach that has contributed to their popularity. "Of course we're happy to be described as style icons in the media, but that's not really how we see ourselves. We wear simple, inexpensive clothes that anyone can buy," Mrs. Pon said.

Outfits aside, Tsuyoshi and Tomi hope to convince other older couples that retirement should mark the start of a second life.

These outfits are Korean hanbok (traditional clothes during the Joseon dynasty) for anyone who may be curious…
