Tom & Katie: a match made in suede

My husband is a huge Tom Cruise fan. He says it's because of Tom's acting abilities, but I think it may have to do with the fact that Tom has the ability to..uhm - get his wife to obey him. (Seriously, what's this thing about men wanting their wives to obey them?) Even William couldn't get Kate to obey him.

Recently, Tom and Katie made the headlines when they were out on the town running some errands and visiting a restaurant. They looked the picture of marital bliss wearing jeans and very similar sunglasses and very similar suede shoes. While Katie's style was admittedly very feminine, there was no mistaking the fact that they were matching.

Tom has told the press before that little Suri is his personal stylist and I was wondering to myself as I looked at the picture whether this was Suri's idea or her parents'? Or did it just happen as it does when people spend a lot of time together?

I had a boss once who fancied himself a metro male and he had a penchant for the same colors that I did. We often ended up wearing the same colors:  jeans with a pink shirt one day, black trousers with a green shirt the next... It turned into something rather messy as you can imagine.

I also wondered how many women would match clothing with their partners and how far they would go. To be honest, in our house we do color-coordinate sometimes, but styles? We are too different!

  1. Interesting post, because yes Tom seems to be the dominant force in his relationships past and present. In my home we occasionally coordinate a bit, but try to keep our styles genuine. xoxo
