* ''Film/TrueLies''. When Helen relates how she first met Simon she imagines him being followed by a couple of government-looking types, one in a trenchcoat. Given that Simon is not a suave superspy but actually a fraud trying to get into her pants, it's likely just her imagination working overtime.

* When ''Series/{{Dexter}}'' is training [[spoiler: Miguel]] in how to murder people, he notes that he told him to be inconspicuous. Instead he "turns up looking like the Unabomber" (with baseball cap, black sweater and sunglasses), especially conspicuous since they're in a casino at the time. In contrast, Dexter always wears a beige sweater and pants when on the hunt.

Added DiffLines:

* Discussed in ''Series/RemingtonSteele'', and also inverted, in that the guy actually ''claims'' to be a sleuth but the trenchcoat betrays him for an amateur. He approaches the agency claiming to be an investigative reporter, but they're immediately suspicious, call up his paper and discover he writes their housekeeping advice column under the pseudonym "Helpful Harriet".
