* Shows up in ''Literature/JasonCosmo'' when early on it's noted wizard Mercury Boltblaster looks immaculate (after a day's ride through dust and mud) - despite having very good reasons to restrict his personal spellcasting. It turns out his clothing is top-of-the-line product from the kingdom Raelna's advanced magical textile industry; it self-cleans (and gradually self-repairs) while adjusting color, weave and cut to suit its wearer's immediate preference. After passing through Raelna as guests of the ruler, the same applies to the rest of the party.

* Due to technical limitations, this trope affects most video games in general, as rendering wardrobe damage would require considerably more art assets. Therefore, characters can swim, trudge through mud and muck, get burned, shot, or blown up, and still look pristine. More modern games avert this to varying degrees through blood stains, clothing becoming wet or torn with damage, and the like, as technology advances and makes these visual features more feasible.

* JustifiedTrope in ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles''. Edna, the FABULOUS fashion designer for supers, made the costumes for each superhero bulletproof, rocketproof, fireproof, and adapt to each user's superpower (for example, Violet's costume became invisible when she did).

* Seems to be a trait of Kingsman agents in ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'', the only one to look even slightly dishevelled [[spoiler:is Harry when a HatePlague causes him to get into a brawl with upwards of 70 people. Even then, the result is his hair being a little mussed up]].

In other words, the trope is the [[DistaffCounterpart Spear Counterpart]] of BeautyIsNeverTarnished. Compare ImprobableHairstyle and MagicPants. Such people are often a BadassInANiceSuit.

Not a Real Life example, cleaning up all the natter
* Real Life Example: [[Series/MythBusters Jamie Hyneman]]. The man regularly works with oily, greasy, filthy machines in a white shirt and beret, and ends each episode spotless. ** Episodes are shot over the course of weeks...and there's several instances where he's shown [[ShirtlessScene taking off his shirt to do strenuous work]], like when they were making the tree cannon. ** There's an amusing Adam-rant about this in the DVD of "Jet Taxi". (Presumably in the non-US broadcast versions as well, most of the DVD extra footage is stuff cut in the US for more commercials.) ** Adam once noted how Jamie's hands were completely covered in oil and grease, right up to his rolled-up sleeves, which were completely immaculate. *** Adam also pointed this out during a build when Jamie was painting their ramp black, using a paint roller. (Which, for those who haven't repainted their house recently, tends to splatter.) The shirt was pristine afterwards. ** Averted a few times, like the "when [it] hits the fan" myth. Adam was wearing protective gear; Jamie was in his usual outfit. Both got spattered by the fake fecal matter in the final test.
