These dudes are...not really matching

Over the weekend, one of our viewers sent in the following pic:
Seems to be a case of the ol' "last night i swear i saw matching dudes," which is found to be a common problem amongst our viewers. So, after you wake up naked in front of Jamba Juice saturday morning, double check the pics you send in because these dudes are definitely not matching. Nice try, Ronrico.

Advice: This wedding sucks. I'm matching all the groomsmen. How can I stand out?

With April just around the corner, we're quickly approaching wedding season.  It's a great time for everyone: the bride and groom enter the happiest 18 months of their lives, lots of acquaintances get very drunk on the bride's daddy's dime, and two total strangers inevitably get their jollies in the coatroom.  Sadly, the marrying couple forces their closest friends/siblings to join the "wedding party," and they usually assign this group uniforms.  Learn how to handle this potentially awful situation, after the jump.

Let's hope this wasnt you on spring break

Not the best quality, but Miller restricts video access on their website. God bless the All-American tradition of bootlegging.

Miller Lite knows that dudes do not want to match.  Wearing a Speedo is embarrassing enough; God forbid a Euro-dude has the same one.  Game over.  While we're on the topic of swimwear: ladies, don't forget to send in your matching bikini pics.  I suspect our latest poll will reveal that this is a very popular thing to do, almost as popular as string cheese. Moral of the story: don't wear Speedos when you're not swimming competitively, and whatever you don't match another dude.

MTV clearly does not understand matching dudes

Apparently MTV noticed that matching dudes were out and about before your humble writers even entered college.  It's tough to look at yourself in the mirror and admit that you are less culturally insightful than the network that brought us "16 and Pregnant" and "Tila Tequila."  Fortunately, their analysis of matching dudes is dumber than Carson Daly and  filled with thinly-veiled pitches for MTV programs.
We will refrain from cheap jokes about homosexuality.
I have never heard of Brody Jenner and Frankie Delgado before, but apparently they are much cooler than me, as they have have their own TV show and I only have poorly made home videos.  MTV titles the article, "Nothing says 'Bromance' quite like matching outfits."  Really?  The way to show how tight you are with your main bro is to wear the same stuff?  The dude on the left stuffed a whistle in his mouth so we wouldn't scream at his bro for rocking the same shirt.  Put the megaphone down and change your clothes!  Shame on Levis jeans for sponsoring this fiasco.  The article goes on to say, "Something about two Hills dudes in matching refs outfits just SCREAMS one-liner, but -- despite our best efforts -- we're just not sure we've come up with the winning punchline."  Perhaps they should check out this website for some comedic inspiration.  One-liners about matching dudes?  We spit those like...never mind.  Refer to the above caption.

Little Matching Dude Awareness Month (LMDAM) comes to a close

Just look at the oppression. They are terrified and ready to cry.

I apologize for posting such a graphic picture, but it's about time that we become aware. Hopefully we raised some awareness this month. To all those little matching dudes who made it through March, we salute you.

We sent out trophies to these little guys so they could hoist some hardware:

MATCHING DUDES OF THE WEEK: Matching dudes spend a night out on the town

Props to one of our viewers for sending in this little gem of a photo montage:
Matching Dudes go shopping. Excuse me, get caught going shopping. (what losers!)

Matching dudes go chugging.

Matching du...WHOA.

These matching dudes may have had a few too many Red Velvet Martinis.

Mugatu's Mother and Her Twin

Merry Christmas from Dorothy Mugatu and her twin sister Gertrude. These ladies have matched for the past 79 Christmases and wanted to share their favorite shot with us, the yellow caps of '05. Although they now pencil on their eyebrows and often forget to brush, these gals always match with style. What do you expect from the mother of a fashion icon?

Friday, March 25, 2011 this the first time you've matched? Why don't you show us on camera?

Here's a pic of some matching dudes living it up on spring break.  Yeah, I know, it's pathetic that this is the best photo we could come up with from one of the craziest places in America.  I promise, there were plenty of better ones, but it's hard to walk up to two cute girls in matching bikinis and ask to take a picture without coming off as some sort of low-rent Girls Gone Wild producer.

Matching dudes from across the pond lose their dignity

A solid all-around match. Props to the guy on the right. It's about time that somebody has been disgusted with the fact that he is matching and caught on camera. Dude on the left: wipe that smile off your face, get a step stool and maybe we'll talk.


Not matching. Not dudes. But this is just way too funny.

Little matching dude gets upset with his matching counterpart

As little Matching Dude Awareness Month comes to a close, it is apparent that the little dudes are fed up with matching. Two Palestinian bros are waiting at a bus stop and one confronts the other about matching. The topic of this video is the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, yet this scene opened up the film. I think the director really wanted to stress the fact that matching another dude flat out sucks, as seen in this clip.
scroll to 4:07. Notice the emphasis on ME!

These dudes are matching from head to toe!

Black V-necks suit these matching dudes

It's saturday afternoon. You want a fresh tee for later that night, so you head to jcrew. The v-neck is "in" so you swipe your plastic and go with the black V. Looks like your friend Bruce had the same nice little saturday. Now you show up to your double date as matching dudes. D'oh! What would any normal dude do? Run and hide. Change. Do something.

But these dudes are embracing the fact that they are matching. Matching in V-necks. Who do you think is buying dinner?

Advice: I just got to a party and I'm matching a dude. What should I do?

Friendly fans, after a week chock-full of matching dude photographs, it's evident that you still do not understand how to avoid a ride on the matching dude train. Its only destination is shame and public humiliation, and with amateur photographers and amoral bloggers on the prowl, that possibility has become all too real. So, in the interest of saving you a whole lot of embarrassment, here's the next installment of Advice for Matching Dudes, after the jump.

Dear God...look at these matching dudes

Look at these shwans. The amount of hair gel used between these 4 is proportional to Kirstie Alley's waistline. These dudes are pumped to have braces, new hollister clothes, and another weekend at the movie theater. Good luck getting your first kiss matching like that, matching dudes.

Wait a minute...these aren't matching dudes

1) These dudes aren't matching
2) But they are partying with the Big East Coach of the Year.
3) That is awesome.

Why are they not matching you ask? First, they aren't lame. Second, its impossible to match a guy who only wears turtlenecks.

Why does he wear a turtleneck? It's obvious. He doesn't want to be matched and is therefore the man. Nobody is sleazy enough/non-fashionable enough/50's enough/anti-matching dude enough to wear turtlenecks on a daily basis.

Since March Matching Dude Madness kicks off tomorrow, we honor all those matching dudes that will be raining 3's and grinding it out in the low post. Here at matchingdudes, we'll be pulling for the Irish matching dudes.

Show off your ties with these matching guys

They definitely planned this. The real question is if they stop for iced caramel macchiatos before or after going to Mens Warehouse together.

Little matching dude awareness month continues

I don't really feel bad for these two because they don't have souls. On the other hand, this was definitely a family vacation pic, so these little dudes were forced to match for the family christmas card. But if you're gonna match, there is no better way to do it than to rep America, because America kicks ass. With that hair part, it looks like the little dude on the right wants to be the next Conan O'Brien.

Conan is a ginger too, right?

Take a whiff of these aussie matching dudes

Check out these clowns. Props on the jean shirts though. G'day matching dudes!

Here is an asian sleeping on some stairs

1) He’s not matching anyone

2) He is an asian passed out on some stairs

3) That is funny

Therefore, this picture deserved to get a shout out. Here at matchingdudes, we like funny. This is, and may possibly lead to a new phenomenon. Keep an eye out for

Make sure to send us pics of matching dudes on spring break!

Whether it's kilts in St. Patrick's Day parade, the coolest board shorts in Cancun, or just your standard accident at the bar, dudes are bound to be wearing the same stuff over spring break.  Whether your vacation has already finished or you're still awaiting the trip to paradise, get the cameras ready.  If some matching dudes are looking pretty stupid, we need you amateur photographers to be there to document it.

Matching dudes console each other

The matching dude on the left must have misplaced his chia pet seeds for his shampoo. I'd have that look on my face too if I got duped into showering with chia seeds. At least he's got a pal to cheer him up. Hang in there, matching dudes.

Wisconsin protesters get matching tats

The capital of America's Cheese Capital is all in a tizzy over collective bargaining rights.  These protesters are not technically matching dudes, but I've never seen this much matching ink outside of a Satanic cult, and I had to share.  Talk about cheese.
They'll regret this when they're sober.

Late night pajama matching dudes

It's late and I'm stuck in the library.  I wish I was prepared for sleep like these dudes.  Let's hope to God this is not a matching couple pic, but who really knows anymore.

Wednesday, March 9, 2011 salutes the troops

March has come, Mardi Gras is over, and spring is almost here.  Today is Ash Wednesday, a rather solemn occasion in many Christian traditions, and although it produces countless matching foreheads (unless your priest's hand was a little wobbly), the day doesn't give us much in the way of matching dudes.  So, to honor the men and women who so bravely defend our nation both in combat and out, check out this picture of matching soldiers observing Ash Wednesday, 2002, at the Kandahar Airbase in Afghanistan:

These folks really do us a great service, and we owe them the utmost respect and support.  If you would like to help the troops, consider donating to the Wounded Warrior Project.  Enjoy your afternoons, and think about giving up matching for Lent.  Whatever you do, though, definitely don't give up  We won't give you up either.

Mardi Gras and Carnaval: parardes bring out the matching dude in all of us

Earlier today, we celebrated International Women's Day.  That kind of holiday is all well and good for the nine-to-five business crowd, and we applaud the advancement of women.  The Dove marketing campaign about how you can be sexy even if your face looks like the aftermath of a fight with a windmill sounds nice, but the true beauties of this world also deserve some recognition.  Because IWD coincides with Fat Tuesday this year, fine honeys from all over are flocking to New Orleans, Rio, and, what do you know, St. Louis, and matching dudes are on the prowl to see some boobies.  So, with nighttime ushering in unthinkable levels of debauchery, let's look at some matching dudes who showed up to Mardi Gras:

These fleur-de-lis dudes bond over the color purple

There used to be a line separating matching dudes and matching girls.  It is now blurred.

Announcing: Matching Dudes of the Week

We're adding a new weekly feature here at the site: the coronation of a set of matching dudes of the week, every week.  Here's the deal: if you think you have a really solid pic involving matching (at least one of the dudes in the picture should be the person who submits it), email it to us and answer the following questions, and be creative:

When did this match occur?
Was it intentional?
How did you feel when you realized you were matching other dudes?
Did you change your clothing immediately?  Why or why not?
Was this your first time batting for Team Matching Dudes?
Have you ever watched Four Weddings and a Funeral?  I thought so.
What makes this photograph deserving of the Matching Dudes of the Week award?

Advice: How can I avoid becoming a matching dude?

Now that our readers are fully acquainted with the strange subculture of matching dudism, we're going to start offering advice so that you all  can most easily limit your interactions with this group.  If you need help with a matching situation, shoot us an email ( or and we'll do our best to drop some knowledge on you.  We'll try to provide Advice for Matching Dudes every week, but we'll probably forget most weeks.  Read wisely, after the jump. celebrates International Women's Day

Today is International Women's Day.  I'm not sure exactly what takes place on this holiday, but I would imagine that women celebrate their womanhood.  Women are great-they look pretty, they smell nice...wait, I think this post is turning towards objectification, which is not the goal of IWD.  So, in the spirit of the day, to honor empowered and independent women all across the globe, check out these matching women attired in very not provocative outfits:

There's no tenderness anymore when you match these dudes

How long have you two been matching dudes? Oh, I don't know, since...Puberty? Right, puberty

The dude on the right is so skinny, I doubt he's gone through puberty at all. When he is not out at yoga class or in the kitchen, it looks like this guy on the right might have some sort of a social life. Too bad his social life is minimized to matching a dude. But he's too old to experience forced matching by his parents. The fake mustache on his friend lends a bit of maturity, but really, who's ever bought a fake mustache (not from Spencer's)? Obviously, Bieber cannot pull it off, even though he wants to:
Make fun of Justin Bieber and matching dudes with us, after the jump.

Little Matching Dude Awareness Month: Here's Another One

As you all know, March is Little Matching Dude Awareness Month.  There are many noble causes that have their own months: Breast Cancer Awareness has October, Irish-American Heritage has March, and, of course, Radon Action Month takes place in January.  People are hurting out there, and designating a special time to recognize their trials and tribulations can help spread knowledge and even raise money.  Little dudes go through pain too: their parents make them wear matching outfits.  Check it:
At least they've got a slide
Help us spread awareness, after the jump.

Our New Poll

I initially voted for hipsters, but I had a realization that I would much rather talk to a hipster while eating a strawberry laffy taffy than just straight up eating a banana laffy taffy. I think i'll change my vote.

Music, created just for matching dudes

Check out this 'Barbra Streisand' number that friend of the site Ol' Gregg created for us here.  Matching dudes do some weird stuff, like matching each other, and I bet that they start dancing when they listen to this song.  Picture that, a bunch of dudes wearing the same outfits grooving to a catchy tune.  Guaranteed to tear up the dance floor.

Listen to the track, after the jump.

Shiny matching dudes take a break from discussing the scientific implausibility of the Death Star's superlaser attack on Alderaan

The gloves might make these guys super stealthy intergalactic invaders, but even Johnnie Cochran couldn't have faked an alibi if OJ showed up in that outfit.  But these dudes are probably big hits at Comic-Con, and I bet they could give Spock a run for his money on the USS Enterprise.  The matching outfits probably make it hard for them to get dates, but they've got a pretty solid chance with the Hot Chicks from Dude Where's My Car?

Little Matching Dude Awareness Month

Educate yourself by studying the oppression that is faced by little matching dudes. Little dudes are forcefully matched by their mothers nationwide. Please take a moment to honor these little guys during the great month of March.

But in all seriousness, check out these matching dudes.

Matching dudes caught red handed

Check out these Vincent Chase wannabes. Somebody tell these matching dudes that Recker's sells pizza, not GQ magazines.

Creativity and individualism give way to matching in Oscars fashion

Celebrity sobriety has become a big thing lately-with Em, Tiger, and even Charlie Sheen supposedly getting clean-so drug users were pretty excited when James Franco bucked the trend and showed up to host the Oscars with pupils the size of quarters*. Others were not quite as enthused, calling it appalling that the host of such a prestigious event was under the influenced of drugs. Who cares, 90 percent of the guests were too, right? Whatever the case, I think everyone can agree that it's even more appalling for small children to get high. Unfortunately, that's what seems to have happened just before the filming of this video, after the jump.
