** Keep your sleeves down and your tie on, however, and you are a Ruthless Businessman. If your suspenders are ''red'' then you are a City Trader of the [[WallStreet Gordon Gekko]] school. This one's more justifiable, as many of the current hallmarks of this character type were developed in the 1980s, when this was indeed part of standard business fashion.

* A fur coat on a man means he's a pimp, a playa, a badass, or an eccentric like the [[Series/DoctorWho second Doctor]] or an EdwardGorey character. Or some combination of the three.

* In British English, "suspenders" are the sort of stocking garters that encircle the leg above the stocking and are clipped to the stocking by little elastic strips, glimpses of which are still {{Fanservice}} and/or FetishFuel even today when worn around the thigh by women. When worn around the ankle or calf by men, they are usually subject to the same stereotypes as braces/suspenders, except that they make the person look even more old/nerdy/ridiculous.

** Similarly, you often see nurses wearing all-white uniforms and caps, when (in the U.S. at least), nurses haven't worn caps for about 50 years, and rarely wear white uniforms anymore. The cap and uniform is purely FetishFuel if the story in question is not a period piece.

* White Wolf's [[{{MageTheAwakening}} Mage: The Awakening]] has an interesting take on this phenomenon. The Order of the Guardians of the Veil have what they call the "Masque". It is a series of "identities" built around defining virtues paired with defining vices. Characters must train in their use, but can gain distinct in-game benefits... ''and penalties''... when using the "token" for the Masque they happen to be employing at the moment.

** [[MorkAndMindy Mork from Ork]] wears rainbow suspenders (which have reached IconicOutfit status), and can get away with it because he is an alien (and a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} one at that).
