* Parodied in "Almost...But Not Quite" by Dayton Ward (''{{Star Trek|ExpandedUniverse}}: Strange New Worlds II'') where two Temporal Investigations agents (based on a report of [[Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome Kirk's visit to 20th Century San Francisco]]) disguise themselves as punk rockers (based on the one Spock nerve-pinched on the bus, one assumes) when visiting Griffith Observatory. Needless to say, they stick out a bit.

* Invoked with the "[[http://www.snopes.com/photos/supernatural/hipster.asp Time-travelling hipster]]" photo- a man in a 1941 photo looks normally dressed (t-shirt and shades) by today's standards but out of place among the suited and hat-wearing populace. As Snopes explains, all the out-of-place looking items were available at the time, just not very widespread.

** In "Terror of the Autons", a Time Lord turns up to warn the Doctor about the Master. He's wearing a bowler and three-piece suit in an effort to blend in; "unlike some" he adds sarcastically, in a clear reference to the Doctor and the Master's flamboyant outfits. Though the whole floating-in-mid air thing might have given the game away.

** 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.

** Humorously averted in "Future's End". When the crew of Voyager find themselves in Los Angeles in 1996, they dress to blend in, but one look at the odd outfits on the boardwalk and gang-banger Tuvok comments that they could've worn their Star Fleet uniforms and no one would've noticed.

When the crew of Voyager find themselves in Los Angeles in 1996, they dress to blend in, but one look at the odd outfits on the boardwalk and gang-banger Tuvok comments that they could've worn their Star Fleet uniforms and no one would've noticed. This gets validated when the Doctor (having just gotten his mobile emitter) walks around the city in his uniform and a local girl just thinks it's a bad leisure suit.

* Inverted in ''Film/KateAndLeopold''. Leopold travels to the present and continues wearing his coat. He sees Kate and mentions that "women who wear pants are not to be trusted", but only jokingly.
** Given that he's in [[BigApplesauce New York]], it's not unusual that people don't care how he dresses.



* Totally avoided in the ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}'' series. Nothing dead (unless it's surrounded by living tissue, like the terminators) can be sent through a time machine, so time travelers arrive naked and have to steal contemporary clothing.
** Though the flashforwards ''also'' avoid this trope through the simple expedient of describing the future as a grim and endless theater of war, so that no matter what fashions might have appeared between, say, 1984 and 2004, the humans' clothes are all ripped to shreds, patched with whatever other fabrics and thread (and skill) were available, and covered with layers of dirt interspersed with sweat and cordite.
* ''Film/TheTimeMachine2002''. After the first time jump, the main character is given directions by a friendly woman on a bicycle. Both clearly think the others' mode of dress is unusual, but are too polite to say so.
** Of course, thanks to the movie, this bicycle outfit inspired a RealLife version.

** The title of this entry comes from [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E3TheUnquietDead "The Unquiet Dead"]], in which this trope is played straight by Rose and subverted by the Doctor. In that episode, the Doctor tells Rose to change her 21st century outfit into something more appropriate for the 1860s, otherwise "You'll start a riot, Film/{{Barbarella}}!" The Doctor, however, merely changes his jumper and Charles Dickens duly comments that he looks like a "navvy".

Everyone is shocked to see her in such ridiculous clothes and wonder if it can really be the fashion in "the Punjab". She, hilariously, assumes at first all the strange looks she's getting are due to her race, when she's really getting the looks due to her clothes, and probably only getting away with it because she looks foreign. In the same episode, knowing that she's going back in time, Sarah Jane dresses appropriately for the time period. Apparently "the '50s came back in the '70s". Luke is suitably embarrassed.
