Older Japanese couple express their love through coordinating outfits

July 20, 2023

Since 2016, Tsuyoshi and Tomi Seki (also known as bonpon511) have been dressing in chic coordinating outfits and sharing their fashion sense on Instagram, reports My Modern Met.

Married for 43 years, the Sekis demonstrate their deep connection to each other in the way they match shirts to dresses, jackets with sweaters, and much more. Now, their popular Instagram account has amassed over 900,000 followers, who enjoy seeing what ensembles they put together next.

Tsuyoshi and Tomi have distinct fashion tastes, usually wearing outfits with bold prints and pops of color. So it’s unsurprising that the couple actually met when they were at art school in Tokyo. Since then, their relationship has blossomed and they have had one daughter. It was she who helped them start their Instagram account to share their charming matching outfits.

The handle @bonpon511 combines their childhood nicknames with the date of their wedding anniversary on May 11.

Tsuyoshi and Tomi say that they have always had similar leanings when it comes to clothes. What they end up putting on is inspired by each other as well as where they’re going that day. And although they appear extremely polished, the couple promises they only purchase pieces from inexpensive brands like Uniqlo.
