* On ''Series/HawaiiFive0'', Max's taste in formalwear is decidedly ''not'' 21st century. His various outfits have included a pastel suit with a ruffled front, and a tie-die vest with matching bowtie. As the resident medical examiner, he's more commonly seen in scrubs than anything, and his casual clothes are fairly normal, but when it's time to put on the fancy pants he goes all-out.

* Some Elder Vampires in [[VampireTheMasquerade VtM]] or [[VampireTheRequiem VtR]] are known to prefer their OutdatedOutfit than more contemporary ones, especially in [[TruceZone Elysium]]. It's subjective whether it makes them ridiculous or dignifiedly old-fashioned, but it's well-accepted ''not'' to make fun of them because they're [[StrongerWithAge Elders]].

* The Highlanders wore kilts...and nothing else. (Well, nothing else except for [[ModestyShorts black-colored shorts-style underwear]].) It was justified in {{Kayfabe}} by the explanation that Rory and Robbie [=McAllister=] [[BornInTheWrongCentury really did still think]] it was the ''{{Braveheart}}'' era and didn't understand the concept of civilized clothing.

* Long, over-the-elbow gloves for women; often called "OperaGloves" (no prizes for guessing at what event they were worn), these were standard accessories of ladies' costume for evening wear (and often daytime wear) from the late 1880s through the late 1950s; they also showed up in the [[RegencyEngland Regency era]].

** The fact that no one says anything might just well be justified given his career. He's a drifter that deals with ethereal beings. His clothes are the least interesting character trait he possesses. Not to mention, seeing some of the technology that shows up every now and then, it's not hard to believe Japan has been introduced to western fashion.

* In ''Film/TheAvengers'', Steve's hair and uniform are reminiscent of the 1940s. Justified, since he was frozen in 1944 and thawed out in modern time.

* Original woodcuts in TheRomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms (from the Ming Dynasty, or roughly 14th or 15th century) depict the characters in Tang Dynasty (7th or 8th century) clothes and armor, not those from the 3rd century, when the story is set. Almost all adaptations retain the anachrostic costuming.

* Discussed in Manga/PrincessJellyfish; everyone from Amamizukon gets a makeover except Chieko. Kurako explains that while her traditional Japanese dress style is unfashionable when surrounded by the otaku style of the others, it becomes stylish when surrounded by stylish people.
