* MadMen featured a decade long's worth of women in gloves (1960-1970), mostly worn by the conservative, working, adult women. They often take them off when they're at home or the office.

Given its association with wealth and status, it's a very popular prop for the MockMillionaire and the WickedCultured villain. Today, putting a monocle and top hat on ''anything'' is sure to get a laugh just out of the pure absurdity.[[note]]Unless you go by the name of [[Creator/TheCynicalBrit John Bain]][[/note]].

** [[AffablyEvil Gentleman]] [[ProfessionalKiller assassin]] Shelly [=DeKiller=] in ''Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Justice for All''. Curiously enough, when de Killer [[spoiler:testifies in court via transciever, the gadget's button]] mimics his monocle. And ''Ace Attorney Investigations 2'' shows him holding an ice cream cone with a cherry to mimic it. Guy really loves that monocle.
