** Two-Face plays with this a bit, since he doesn't so much have an iconic ''outfit'' as an iconic ''style''. In pretty much every depiction, to represent his fractured psyche and to match his half-ruined looks he'll usually wear a mismatched suit which is essentially two different suits which have been split down the middle with two halves of each sown together to form one. This might be simply two different colours, such as the ''Film/Scarface1983''-inspired half-white, half-black appearance of the ''[[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries BtAS]]'' version, or two different styles or fashions, such as half-pinstripe, half-checkered, or even half-well maintained, half-damaged such as the ''[[Film/TheDarkKnight Dark Knight]]'' version. In extreme cases, you might get something like the ''Film/BatmanForever'' version, which is half-normal suit, half-WTHCostumingDepartment.

* An in-universe example occurs in ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'' when Sherlock grabs an unusual, completely-outside-of-his-usual-fashion-taste deerstalker hat in order to hide his face from paparazzi, with the result that he's photographed wearing the hat and his in-universe fandom assumes he wears it all the time. His fans routinely talk about it and one of the fake kiss-and-tell stories that his fake {{Honey Trap}}ped girlfriend pulls on him has the headline "He made me wear the hat". And, of course, this particular take on the character actually has an iconic outfit of his own, even if it's not the one he's known for in-universe: the well-fitted shirt, expertly-tailored suit, slipknot blue scarf, and Belstaff greatcoat.

His fans routinely talk about it and one of the fake kiss-and-tell stories that his fake {{Honey Trap}}ped girlfriend pulls on him has the headline "He made me wear the hat". This is, naturally, all spoofing the iconic nature of the deerstalker in adaptations despite it not initially appearing in the original stories.

** For the more dedicated Tull fan, there's John Evan, the band's keyboardist from the 70's era, with his baggy white suits and polka dot ties.

** Katsuya Jounouchi's pair of sneakers which he wears to every outfit. During the introduction chapter of said sneakers, a lot of people were beaten and one person was even poisoned because of those shoes.
