Added DiffLines:

* French mathematician and politician Cédric Villani always appears in public wearing a massive purple ascot tie and an assorted large spider-shaped amber brooch in addition to his unkept beard and shaggy neck-length hair. He isn't nicknamed "The Lady Gaga of Maths" for nothing.

* [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]] with Caboose from ''Machinima/RedVsBlue''. Since the show was originally filmed in Halo 1, everyone started out with Mark V Armor and an Assault Rifle, and upgraded to the Mark VI 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 V helmet.

*** 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 "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E3TheUnquietDead 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!]]''

* The cravat, and possibly [[BowtiesAreCool the bowtie]] as well. It's now relegated to formal use since most people find it either too old-fashioned or for stodgy teachers/politicians. Bow ties are also perceived as being notoriously difficult to tie (even though the actual knot is the same you use for your shoes). In an age when many men refuse to bother with even an ordinary necktie, a bow tie is simply beyond the pale.

* 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]].
