* ''[[Literature/ChildrenOfDune]]'' featured a fight between [[BadAss Gurney Halleck]] and some mook. Halleck's strategy is to wait until the man lunges at him, then to [[CombatPragmatist throw his cloak over the guy's head and stab him through it]].

* Bullfighters
* [[RoyalRapier Rapier]] and Cloak is (or was anyway) a RealLife discipline, back when people walked around with cloaks and rapiers on a regular basis. It's still used when appropriate in Stage Combat, UsefulNotes/SocietyForCreativeAnachronism, etc.
* One type of eastern hidden weapon is a long-sleeved robe with weights sewn into the cuffs.
* Lee style Tai Chi has an empty-hand form, and a number of weapon styles - duelling sword, broadsword, staff, nunchuks... and silk scarf.
* Judo and Brazilian jiu-jitsu are performed in the gi (traditional martial arts uniform), and practitioners are allowed to grip nearly anywhere on their own or their opponent's gi. This results in a wide variety of creative controlling holds, collar chokes, lapel chokes and arm traps, sleeve chokes, and other techniques that are dependent on the user's, or his opponent's, clothing.

* First three movies in the ''Film/TheTransporter'' series have each at least one fight scene where the main character uses his trademark black suit to beat up or tie up his opponents. It's probably a complete coincidence that this inevitably leads to a Creator/JasonStatham [[FanService shirtless scene]].

* In ''Film/OnceUponATimeInChina'' III, the main character, in one scene, pacifies a street full of fighting ruffians by taking off his outer jacket and whipping it around with characteristic kung fu precision.

** In 3.5e, the ''Oriental Adventures''-derived Wu Jen class gets a spell called Iron Scarf, which turns a thrown scarf into a deadly blade. At higher levels, they also get a spell called Decapitating Scarf, which does pretty much [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin what you think it does]].
