* Some Elder Vampires in ''[[TabletopGame/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]].

* ''[[VideoGame/{{Onmyoji}} Onmyōji]]'' inverts this with most of the cast dressed in kimono way ahead of the Heian period the game is set inů except Seimei who actually resembles a government official of the time.

*** Doctors One (Edwardian academic garb), Two (long coat and bowtie), Three (smoking jacket, ascot, and ruffled shirt with lace cuffs), Five (cricketer's costume and Panama hat), Eight (frock coat, vest and cravat) and Eleven (tweed suit with leather elbow patches and a {{bowtie|s are cool}}) Doctors Four, Six and arguably Seven subverted this trope with bohemian outfits that were ''never'' in style. Nine and Ten avert this with, respectively, leather jacket and contemporary suits which become anachronistic to their surroundings. Nine [[ChangedMyJumper dealt with it]] in ''The Unquiet Dead'', and tends to end up in situations where his jacket is very out of style - although its most ill-advised outing was to Blitz-era London, as it is actually a [[PuttingOnTheReich WWII German Kriegsmarine jacket]]. Jack openly mocks him for going around in the Blitz dressing like a ''[[IdiotBall U-Boat Captain!]]''

*** Something of a running joke with Ian and Barbara in the First Doctor's tenure - while being both ordinary humans from modern-day Earth, they would pick up various items from their travels, and the Doctor giving them permission to raid the TARDIS wardrobe is a significant point in his CharacterDevelopment from a total {{Jerkass}} into a much more reasonable EccentricMentor. As a result, they tend to wear incredibly inappropriate clothing everywhere, usually just for fun, with Barbara usually preferring alien clothing and Ian historical clothing. Barbara spends "The Edge Of Destruction" dressed like a male [[InhumanlyBeautifulRace Thal]] (from "The Daleks"), Ian wears an ancient Chinese jacket while running around Marinus, and he selects a silly-looking Victorian greatcoat to wear outside in "Marco Polo", insisting he just fell in love with it. The Doctor [[CommonalityConnection compliments him on his taste]] and tells him he got it from Gilbert and Sullivan.

** And then, when Wil goes to interview for a job at said bar wearing a hilariously outdated suit, he's hired [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1480 on the spot]], and is seen wearing it in every subsequent appearance at work.

* In Wrestling/{{Progress Wrestling}} there's, Jack Gallagher who looks like a circus strongman, wearing leopard-print trunks and a weight-lifting belt and sports a magnificent moustache.

* Bill Kraft in ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' dresses in deliberately archaic 1930s suits. His mannerisms, car and furniture also reflect his fondness for that period. Then it turns out he also likes to dress in a [[KaiserReich WWI-era Prussian uniform]] complete with pickelhaube, because he considers himself not American, but Prussian and a subject of the Kaiser.

*** Scholars have noticed that the barong is only a couple of centuries old and actually dates back to the Spanish colonization: [[HarsherInHindsight The Spanish nobility forced native men to wear transparent shirts so they couldn't hide any weapons.]]

* [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]] with Caboose from ''Series/RedVsBlue''. Since the show was originally filmed in Halo 1, everyone started out with Mark IV Armor and an Assault Rifle, and upgraded to the Mark V and Battle Rifle as the show went on. For whatever reason, Caboose prefers the original setup and doesn't upgrade with everyone else. It's originally implied that he was just too stupid to realize he needed an upgrade, but after being forcibly upgraded he gets excited when he gets to switch back to a Mark IV helmet.
