*** After Corran is [[NeverFoundTheBody declared missing in action and presumed dead]] (''The Krytos Trap''), Rogue Squadron has their flight suits changed from the orange seen in ''ANewHope'' to dark green with black and white trim, after Corran's X-Wing. It's never stated whether they changed back after he reappears.

* 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'' daughter of a High Family who wants to make her own way.

*** Nor, for that matter, did the fact that when he was ordered to meet with President Truman at Midway to discuss how UsefulNotes/TheKoreanWar was going, he met the president in battered fatigues. Supposedly, he was trying to make it clear that he was subordinate to the President by making sure he wasn't as sharply dressed, but it was widely interpreted to be an insult.

** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' has the protagonist subvert this trope as he wears his uniforms properly down to the footwear (in his opinion it's stylish). The party members still play it straight however. Ryuji wears his winter and summer uniform with bright graphic tees replacing the shirts, his pantlegs rolled up, and white sneakers. Ann wears her winter uniform with a white zip-up hoodie underneath her blazer with the sleeves rolled up and red leggings underneath, while her summer uniform is worn properly with a blue jacket tied around her waist. Yusuke wears his winter uniform with the shirt untucked and no blazer or tie, and his summer uniform replaces his school's shirt and vest with a blue shirt that has the sleeves rolled to his elbows. Makoto wears her winter uniform correctly but replaces the winter blazer with a black vest; and her summer uniform is worn with a dress shirt instead of the school polo, a belt around her waist, and black leggings underneath. Haru wears a pink turtleneck cardigan over her winter uniform with floral tights and replaces the polo shirt with a purple turtleneck tank top for her summer uniform.

* It should be noted that the AEUG of ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam'' and ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ'' actually didn't have a dress code (having originated as a rebel group of former Earth Federation and Zeon soldiers, along with whatever civilian volunteers they picked up along the way), so ''everyone'' wore a custom uniform, no matter what it was.

[[TheCaptain Bright Noa]] actually stood out ''because'' he wore his standard EFF uniform, as it happened to be what he was wearing when the ''Argama'' rescued him and he joined up.

* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'', ZAFT uniforms are ColorCodedForYourConvenience to differentiate between their respective wearers' ranks (like, red is for pilot aces, black is for ship captains, white is for squad commanders, etc.). However, ''very'' cool pilots receive a special right to use a uniform of any color, like orange or white without being a commander. Andy "Desert Tiger" Waltfeld takes advantage of this to indulge his preference for a tiger motif.
** More subtle variations appear in the Earth Alliance uniforms. Most of them are white with greyish sides and black or greyish shoulders, but a few officers - most notably the villainous William Sutherland and [[SergeantRock Natarle Badgiruel]] following her promotion to captain of the ''[[CoolShip Archangel]]'''s [[EvilCounterpart opposite number]] - have black shoulders and black sides, and TheCaptain of the ''[[CoolShip Archangel]]'' is the only OMNI officer to have a uniform with red shoulders.
** And in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'', Lunamaria Hawke wears the red ZAFT uniform with a very short skirt ''and'' ZettaiRyouiki instead of trousers. The three Extended pilots wear even further-customized versions of the lowest-rank OMNI uniforms, and Neo Roanoke, as Captain of the 81st Autonomous Mobile Group, wears a version of the OMNI officer's uniform that is dark grey and black instead of white and grey.
** Also nearly every named pilot has a custom pilot suit of some design. Rey wears a white ZAFT pilot suit for despite being a redcoat, and Heine has an Orange suit of the same color as his Prototype GOUF with a Faith emblem on it. Athrun also has a purple flight suit for some reason but it was just given to him when he rejoined Zaft with no hint that he specifically wanted it. Shinn and Luna wear the Elite pilot suits and Shinn later gets a Faith emblem on his. The only named character with a generic suit is Dearka (in ''SEED'' he wore the red "elite" uniform and pilot suit; his now wearing the same uniform as ordinary grunts implies that he was demoted as punishment for having defected during the previous war). On the Orb side Kira, Athrun and Cagalli have a specially colored Orb pilot suit and Mwu gets one with the same markings as his old EA Hawk suit. And Andrew Waltfeld gets a tiger striped pilot suit of undetermined design.



* Unusually for a Gundam series, ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Gundam 00]]'' mostly subverts this trope throughout the first season. Only [[SuperSoldier Soma]] gets a custom pilot suit and that is necessary to stop her Quantum Brainwaves from affecting her in the same way Allelujah's does him.
** It gets a bit looser in the second series with Graham's "Mr. Bushido" attire and the Innovator's colour coded helmets. Celestial Being also get a uniform but each member has a different colour scheme and some further customise their outfits (Ian, Lasse, Mileina, Linda).



** Paptimus Scirocco, TheManBehindTheMan of ''Zeta Gundam'' is not officially a member of the Titans task force, and his uniform shows this off, being the Titans uniform but in white and gold rather than black and red. Two other pilots, PsychoForHire Yazan Gable and artificial SuperSoldier Rosamia Badam, also get their own unique uniforms in yellow/black and purple/red respectively.

Two Federation pilots attached to the Titans, LadyOfWar Lila Milla Rira and ReasonableAuthorityFigure Buran Blutarch, also get custom uniforms (dark red and sleeveless and black/blue respectively) despite not being full-fledged Titans.
** ''ZZ'' starts out with most Neo Zeon forces wearing standard Zeon uniforms, with KnightInShiningArmor Mashymre Cello the only one shown with any embellishments, and CloudCuckooLander Chara Soon foregoing a uniform altogether. Once DragonWithAnAgenda Glemy Toto ditches his plain uniform for a custom armored one prominently featuring his personal crest, though, custom uniforms start spreading across the officer corps like wildfire.
* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack'' trimmed down on the custom uniforms a bit for both factions. Amuro Ray and Kayra Su wear a blue variant of the standard EFF/Londo Bell uniform, as a CallBack to the blue uniforms from the original series, while Chan Agi gets a [[CustomUniformOfSexy miniskirt with her uniform]]. For Neo Zeon, Nanai Miguel eschews the standard military shirt and pants in favor of a collared shirt and tie and a knee-length skirt. {{Ace Pilot}}s Gyunei Guss and Rezin Schneider have the standard uniforms in their personal colors, and Quess Paraya receives a uniform in Char's red. Char himself has a custom dress uniform as well as his standard uniform.
