** At the [[Franchise/AmericanGirlsCollection American Girl]] Place in UsefulNotes/LosAngeles, employees are required to wear black pants, black shoes, and black socks. Shirts can be of any colors so as long it's solid and no logos/patterns, while those working in the cafe have to have white button-down shirts. (Might apply to some of the other stores.)

* This trope was actually the reason why the CommissarCap ever became the regulation cap of the RussiansWithRustingRockets in [[TheNewRussia the 90es]]. Originally it was just TheEighties military chic, where some officers begun competing for [[BlingOfWar having the biggest and highest cap in the unit]]. Then [[SukhomlinovEffect some brass loved the style]] and put it into the regs, which ironically coincided with TheGreatPoliticsMessUp.

* In the ''Literature/TheShipWho'' series, Chria Chance wears an identical uniform - except it's made of genuine animal leather. It's implied that she's allowed to get away with it for the same reason they ignore her patently fake name; she's almost certainly a [[BlackSheep Black Sheep]] daughter of a High Family who wants to make her own way.

*** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', while most of the Turks wear the standard suit, Reno wears his with no tie and with his shirt untucked. Because he's just that {{Badass}}. Or lazy. Whatever. Rude has an extensively pierced ear, and Tseng a bindi.

** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'', each of Emperor Gestahl's three generals (Leo, Celes and Kefka) wears a different outfit, none of which resemble any Imperial uniform then in service. (Leo's comes the closest; at least it's approximately the same shade of green as those of the infantry).

*** Main character Cloud, a former SOLDIER, wears a SOLDIER 1st Class uniform, but his version incorporates FashionableAsymmetry and heavier, more industrial-looking armour and weapons that are covered in cracks and damage, and bandages for cushioning on his armour. This gives him a sort of [[WardrobeFlawOfCharacterization junky, cobbled-together appearance rather than a professional one]]. [[HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic He also foregoes a helmet]], displaying his [[AnimeHair ridiculous hairstyle]].
*** Zack and Angeal wear the correct SOLDIER uniform, with symmetrical pauldrons and wrist armour, but, like Cloud, forego helmets.
*** The 1st Class [=SOLDIERs=] in the world of are allowed to use personal equipment, including custom uniforms, although even the heavily customised versions worn by Sephiroth and Genesis use certain insignias. They're also "unofficially" allowed to refuse orders, presumably on the grounds of: "Hey, do ''you'' want to try and get Sephiroth to do it?"

Even during the field exam, Squall and Zell modify their trainee uniforms slightly, Squall leaving his jacket open and Zell wearing his with the sleeves rolled back; Seifer and his buddies Fujin and Raijin never wear the trainee uniform at all.

** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'', the main characters are supposedly all wearing Crownsguard Fatigues, which all have an uncanny similarity to expensive designer alternative fashion clothing. They are all black and share skull and crossbones motifs, but the designs are totally different for each character, and reflects each character's individual personality and aesthetic.

* In ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', Worf wears a Klingon sash/baldric over his Starfleet uniform and has long hair, quite un-regulation.

** ''Series/UchuSentaiKyuranger'' has a twist on this where custom uniforms are more common than regular ones. Only the characters who are straight-up HumanAliens (Lucky, Spada, and Hamy) have "ordinary" costumes, while everyone else gets touches that nod to their races or homeworlds: WolfMan Garu's suit has fur, androids Balance and Champ have a more mechanical look, scorpion-man Stinger has a [[BewareMyStingerTail stinger tail]], Raptor (who represents Aquila) has [[GoodWingsBadWings little angel wings]] on her back, and Naga (from the Ophiuchus system) has a snakeskin pattern on the sides of his suit. As in past series, the {{Sixth Ranger}}s have their own unique touches: Ryu Commander's suit has a BadassLongcoat aspect (similar to Series/KamenRiderWizard), Koguma Skyblue has a "scarf" with weighted tassels that he can use as a weapon (symbolizing his being a KidHero) and Hou'ou Soldier's suit looks more armored and militarized, complete with a headset and microphone built into the helmet[[note]]Ironically, both Koguma Skyblue and Hou'ou Soldier are Earthlings but still have fancier costumes than some of the alien members of the team[[/note]].

* ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles'': Pretty much all of Squad 7 customises their uniforms in some way. There are reasonable justifications, however. Squad 7 is a Militia unit, not regular Army, so they are pretty much left with whatever uniforms and gear the Regulars aren't using. Welkin is a very self-aware EnsignNewbie, and his relationship with his subordinates is antagonistic enough without him going [[TheNeidermeyer Neidermeyer]] and trying to enforce strict uniform regs in the middle of a shooting war. There is a war on, and it's pretty universal that in a combat zone, uniform regs can be relaxed a little.
** It is quite notable that whenever the Regulars show up, they are always in impeccable uniform, probably to contrast them against the RagTagBunchOfMisfits that is Squad 7.
