Also on-topic, Nikys and Adelis dressing in matching (if not identical) outfits to be Penric-as-Mira's servants; "Nikys turned and cut up a voluminous old black skirt for two tabards, which, when she draped them over a black shirt and trousers for Adelis and a dark dress for herself, blended well and gave them both an unified air," along with the matching black masks.

But I think there will always be occasions when we're supposed to dress alike.
The online clothing vendor eShakti does this now. Their dresses and skirts also have pockets! www.eshakti.com
