In one of their post's caption, it was explained that the grandson, Reef Chang, was tired of seeing his grandparents overwhelmingly bored every day, and so he asked them to "reinterpret fashion."

It continued: "[They are] hoping to let everyone know that age is not a barrier to have fun in fashion and even old clothing can [be] transformed into trendy outfits!" 

Chang explained that his grandfather typically likes wearing suits to show professionalism, while his grandmother was quite fashionable when she was younger. These days, she goes for comfort over style.
