These ugly Christmas suits stand out this season

The holiday season is in full effect, and obviously, one of the best parts is celebrating at parties with family and friends. Twitter user @RickyDaPrince1 received an invitation to a holiday gathering with an “Ugly Sweater” theme, but rather than opt for a basic ugly sweater, he picked out a suit in a Christmas pattern instead, to make a special effort. To his surprise, he met his perfect match.

Ricky showed up to the party in his bright green suit printed with red stripes and white Christmas trees and reindeer — which appears to be a Target holiday special, the Fair Isle Print Suit Coat from Suitmeister, retailing for $60. But, as he revealed in a Twitter post, he wasn’t alone in his fashion choice. “Came to an ugly sweater party wearing a suit thinking I’d stand out but I met my twin lol,” the fitness instructor commented.

The woman in the photo wore the exact same suit, with a skirt rather than pants — and they both wore red shoes. The post was a social media hit, with over 40,000 likes and 7,000 retweets.

The Twitterverse was rooting for them to get together, but alas, it seems that the woman in the photo is already married.

It wasn’t long before other shoppers shared their photos, too.

Considering the suits’ wide availability, not only at Target, but in comparable patterns at JC Penney, it shouldn’t be all that surprising for people to see themselves coming and going. As Peter Watts, above, noted, “Yeah man the tarGet special got all of us.”
