* ''The Devils of Langenhagen'', a short story by Australian sci-fi author Sean [=McMullen=]. The protagonist, a German pilot in an Me262 squadron in the last days of UsefulNotes/WW2, realises there's something odd about the two pilots (and their wives) who've turned up with their unusually advanced aircraft (a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horten_Ho_229 Horten 229]] and a Japanese [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyushu_J7W Shinden canard]] fighter) because they're not dead-tired, starving and filthy like the rest of the squadron. They even have cigarettes! It turns out they're time travellers out for some [[HuntingTheMostDangerousGame thrill-seeking]].

* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}''. In "Frontierland" Sam and Dean have to travel back to 1861 Wyoming. Aware that Dean is a [[WrongGenreSavvy massive Western fan]], Sam reluctantly wears the clothes he's picked out for them. Sure enough, not only is it the HollywoodHistory version (Dean dresses up in a serape like [[Film/AFistfulOfDollars The Man With No Name]], only to remove it in embarrassment when someone [[SarcasmMode congratulates him on his nice blanket]]) but one of the locals also comments on how unusually clean their clothes are.

** In "Time After Time", Dean unexpectedly travels back to 1944 where he meets Eliot Ness, who it turns out is also a Hunter. Once Ness establishes Dean's bona fides, the first thing he does is haul Dean off to a tailor to get a proper suit so he doesn't look like a hobo.

* On the rare time-travels of Milligan's ''ShadeTheChangingMan'', it was easily HandWaved by Shade only appearing to personalities known to stay under the influence of substances, sometimes including hallucinogens. In one unique aversion, all of Hotel Shade and everything inside reverted gradually to earlier analogues and fashions, until they finally arrived in colonial Salem. Constantine mused on the fit of various underwear through history.

* In ''LightNovel/OdaNobunaNoYabou'', Sagura Yoshiharu was transported from the present (late 2000s-early 2010s) Japan to [[JidaiGeki the Sengoku era]], some 450 years ago. The light novel and manga averted it by making him, eventually, wear period clothing. The anime plays this straight; he's ''always'' seen either in his [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_school_uniform#Gakuran school uniform]] or a yellow T-shirt, sometimes with period armour on them.

Necessarily averted if you [[CantTakeAnythingWithYou Can't Take Anything With You]] -- which just makes the time traveler stand out ''more''. If time travel allows for multiples of the same person to run around at the same time and they actually do change their jumper, see DifferentlyDressedDuplicates.

* Hitomi in ''VisionOfEscaflowne'' goes gallivanting through the fantasy world with knights, princesses and giant magical robots, wearing her school sailor uniform. She gets some comments about strange clothes in the early episodes, though. At one point they try to get her into a more appropriate dress, but then she had to run down Van and a big, billowy dress really gets in the way of a good runner, so she resorted to an ActionDressRip.
* Averted strongly in ''TsubasaReservoirChronicle'', where nearly every stop (longer than a day or so, anyway), involves the main characters acquiring clothing that would be appropriate in the local culture. More often then not, they are skipping [[TheMultiverse dimensions]], not [[TimeTravel time traveling]], but the concept still applies, since the worlds they visit have a great diversity of historical settings, magical abilities, technology, urban vs rural, or even non-human inhabitants. Fai's fur coat would be out of place anywhere, so he seldom wears it. If they ''are'' wearing their own clothing, someone is likely to comment on how strange it appears. Basically, this gave CLAMP an excuse for [[CostumePorn endless costume changes]].

* ''[[VideoGame/HarukanaruTokiNoNakaDe Harukanaru Toki no Naka de - Hachiyou Shou]]'' (not ''[[TrappedInAnotherWorld quite]]'' a TimeTravel, but [[FantasyCounterpartCulture close enough]]) averts the trope only partially. It's implied that Akane, Tenma and Shimon do look strange in their school uniforms to people in [[JidaiGeki Kyou]]; however, the trio is given a chance to change into local clothing. The result is mixed: Akane in particular ends up trading her jacket for a short big-sleeved... thing... while the rest of her clothes, including short skirt, is left intact, and her short hair is also quite a contrast to the local standards, yet this hardly gets commented on.
