Some may think that Chris Evans' dog wears the blue-collared shirt better than the actor does!

Whilst filming scenes for his new Netflix film, The Gray Man, Chris shared a cute picture of his 7-year-old canine, Dodger, on Instagram, wearing a teeny-tiny version of his character's shirt that wouldn't look out of place in our roundup of the best dog coats.

In the film, Chris plays a character named Lloyd, who is described as a villainous specialist. And, as it turns out, Dodger's t-shirt isn't just a clever replica… it is the real shirt from the film!

As Chris explained in the caption: "While filming #thegrayman the wardrobe department accidentally shrunk one of Lloyd's shirts. I obviously kept it for one reason". It, of course, made perfect sense!

Despite the fact that there was a huge tear in the back of the shirt, Dodger wore it very well.

"The way it fits him oh so perfectly. It might have been done on purpose", exclaimed one Instagram user.

Another suggested that Dodger's new outfit meant, "y'all can be twins for Halloween".

However, as any Chris Evans fan will know, this isn't the first time the actor has sported matching looks with his pooch.

Having adopted the Boxer mix back in 2017, Chris gave Dodger a beautiful white cable-knit sweater for Christmas in 2019 that was just like the one he wore in the popular murder mystery film, Knives Out.

Chris shared a picture of Dodger in his sweater on Christmas Day, with a super simple caption of the Christmas tree emoji.

The actor, who is most famous for playing the role of Captain America across multiple Marvel films, has previously described his perfect pup as being "such a good friend".
