Speaking to CNN, Anthony explained that the pair haven’t been matching every day of their 52-year marriage – they took up square dancing a few years ago, and decided to coordinate their clothes whenever they danced.

The matching outfits have become their signature, and their friends look forward to seeing what they’re going to wear.
