Here at NPR, like many work places, it's not uncommon for two or more staffers to show up at work inadvertently dressed alike. Men in polo shirts and khakis, women in sweater dresses, everyone in checked button-downs and jeans.

"Oh, didn't you get the memo?" they often joke for the rest of the day.

This happens so frequently at NPR West, that I've started to photographing all the accidental twins to show off look-alikes. (Just scroll through the @NPRWest Twitter feed for some examples.)

Since style obviously runs deeper around here than just 'a face for radio,' we wanted to find out if any of the NPR locations have as much style as we do here in Southern California. So we rounded up some NPR T-Shirts for a bureau-to-bureau fashion spread.

Scroll through the slideshow to see how public radio journalists styled their NPR's Threadless T-Shirt, in LA, New York and Washington, D.C.:

Lest you think dress-alike fun is only for big kids, we issued a half-pint style challenge to the same three bureaus with the NPR Get Smarter t-shirt:

Is the small public radio fan in your life more into vintage fashion, or a specific show? Not to worry, the NPR Shop has an assortment of kids' clothes.

Plus, through the end of today, everything in the shop is 15% off (promo code THANKS2013). Fashionable and sensible.
