* There is a Disney comic that parodies TheLostWorld, set in an AlternateUniverse and featuring Scrooge, Donald and Fethry. The interesting thing is that the three are wearing their "normal" clothes (Scrooge's top hat and frock, Donald's sailor outfit and Fethry's sweater and signature cap) while everybody else is wearing Victorian era fashion. Stories set in some kind of alternate past are common in Disney comics, but basically all others have the main characters appear in the appropriate historical clothes.

* ''CodeGeass'' manages to avert, play straight, and play with this trope in multiple ways. The main cast usually avoids this altogether by wearing either [[SchoolUniformsAreTheNewBlack their school uniforms]] or [[MildlyMilitary their Black Knights outfits]]. In some cases, they can be seen wearing either "modern" (by our standards) or completely original fashions (much like SEED). The problem with that becomes apparent when you remember that the Geass-verse exists in as an AlternateHistory to our own and that the equivalent to 2017/18 A.T.B. is roughly 1963 A.D. Thank you, AlienSpaceBats. This is played with (and possibly straight) ''[[SerialEsclaation even further]]'' when you get a good look at the fashions of the [[BlueBlood nobles and]] [[DeadlyDecadentCourt the Britannian Imperial Court]]: their fashion tastes seem to have not changed since the Golden Age of European Absolutism... which [[FridgeBrilliance is actually very fitting]]... There's no excuse for [[ImprobableHairstyle Charles' epic curls]].

* In an article in the 1970's New York magazine had an article analyzing clothing and fashion styles in movies. They said that you could tell when a movie was ''made'' by those styles, but not really when it was supposed to be set. An example were the hair styles in The Great Gatsby (1974) where Robert Redford and Sam Waterston should have had hair parted in the middle and slicked down, not the 1970's way it was.

* Just about any giant robot anime predating ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' includes disco haircuts and collared jumpsuits.

-->We don't have the generational identifiers previous decades had: we're not hippies, mods, punks or breakdancers like people were in the olden times. Instead, we're all of those things, mixed up and amalgamated: a pair of flares here, some Stan Smiths there, a jaunty trilby way over there in a Milton Keynes singles night.

* Subverted on the NewsRadio episode that takes place in a futuristic spaceship. Everybody else wears "space clothes", but Jimmy comes in wearing the same suit he wears in every other show, and Space Dave mocks his ridiculous clothes. Jimmy defends the suit by saying it was the height of fashion in the late 20th century.

* Anton Corbijn's ''Control'' gets all the changing 1970's fashions right. So the Ian in 1973 goes to see Bowie with guyliner and a fluffy jacket, but by 1979 is wearing the familiar austere JoyDivision outfit.

* Mostly played straight in Feudal Japan. Evidence (including extant garments and paintings/prints) shows that both men's and women's fashions changed very little between the end of the Sengoku period (1600) and the end of the Edo period (1868). Prior to 1600, fashions did change but slowly and mostly with small, subtle changes. For example, late Heian period (1100-1185) court garb looks very different than Momoyama period (1568-1600) garb, but the differences are relatively small compared to comparable western garb.
