** Seems to be something he picked up on his second trip through the 1940's as when he joined up with The Ninth Doctor and Rose, he opted for jeans and t-shirt.

** A particularly egregious case is Shoyō and his post-Awakening HighClassGlass, which is incorrect on ''oh so many levels'' – first for not yet being invented in the first place, second for appearing in pre-Edo Japan despite being strictly Western – but gets accepted anyway due to its adding to his sex appeal.

** The Riddler always had his green bowler hat (which, contrary to what most people think, is from the [[Series/{{Batman}} 1960s TV series]], not the comics).
** The Penguin kept his top hat, bow tie, monocle, and cigarette...although for some reason he let his hair grow a bit longer than you'd expect someone trying to break into high society to do.

* Inverted- Miaka and Yui (and presumably the other two priestesses as well) in ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'' were both dressed in their modern day school uniforms. These wouldn't stand out ordinarily, but when you consider that most of the book is set in ancient China, then you get the picture. At one point, Tamahome plucks at Miaka's bra strap and says 'What's this?' Miaka's reaction is to call him a pervert and give him an upper-cut.

** The Shade and the Gentleman Ghost are both supervillains who dress in old fashioned finery. Justified in that both men were actually alive when these clothes were first being worn. Especially the Gentleman Ghost--being a ghost, he's nothing but a walking set of late-19th century finery, with top hat and [[HighClassGlass monocle]].

** {{Black Knight}}s typically wear [[TheMiddleAges medieval]] type-armor, regardless of the era of their activity. In their case they are {{Legacy Character}}s of an original knight who was active in the court of Myth/KingArthur.
** Comicbook/CaptainAmerica villain and founder of the Thunderbolts, Baron Helmut Zemo occasionally invokes this when he tries to style himself after his father. The mini-series Baron Zemo: Born Better, had him thrust back in time and slowly shifting to each generation of his own family tree. After each temporal jump, he would briefly invoke this trope until he finally had more time appropriate clothing made to replace his current attire.

*** 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) 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 BadassLongcoat, especially as worn in ''Series/{{Firefly}}''. Practically everyone on the show is wearing clothes from either the 1860s or the early 1990s. Or the Roman Empire, for the Companions.). And Jayne, who uses a [[HandCannon Lemat Revolver]], which would be a very anachronistic CoolGun in a show set today, is constantly seen in T-shirts and jeans. The best clothes to imagine having in a Western.

* Anything to do with ninjas or samurai, at any time, anywhere. Especially since ninja outfits were invented by someone other than actual ninjas, who dressed as peasants to blend in.

** JustifiedTrope: the Ottoman Empire once wanted to define its culture more clearly, in opposition to Europe's culture. So they picked a style of hat from Morocco, a territory they did not currently own (so they wouldn't be playing favorites), and decreed that the fez would be the official hat of the Ottoman Empire. Europeans wore them when they wanted to be decadent Orientalists. Then it got {{deconstructed|Trope}} in the early 20th century when Turkey suddenly no longer wanted to be Ottoman, and Ataturk made a famous speech about how rotten the fez was and why Turks wouldn't wear them any more. In short, don't wear a fez if you're in Turkey unless you want to make a very dangerous political statement.

* [[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.
