* During the early [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]], ComicBook/LexLuthor's "costume" was his prison greys, showing that he hadn't even bothered to change his clothes before starting his latest evil scheme (and considering he usually ended up back in prison by the end of any given story, it might be taken as a subconscious admittance of defeat). At some point, it was stated that he wore his prison uniform to remind himself how much he hated Superman for putting him in prison. This gets backwards-referenced in the Comicbook/{{New 52}}, where the first thing he does after getting out of prison is to order his staff to burn the uniform, so he'll never be reminded of his time their again.

->''Who the devil are these guys? The Planaria Gang? Half the city's Municipal Elevator Operators having a club meeting? Those are prison uniforms. Not a wise idea; if they escaped, people would look over their heads, and be unable to give a good description. I -- I can't say! I saw his face for a second, but then my eyes were unaccountably drawn upwards.''

* During the "On the Open Road" number from ''WesternAnimation/AGoofyMovie'', a verse is sung by a prisoner in a paddy wagon wearing the stripes. Goofy looks at him, then at his son Max and imagines him wearing stripes as well (as he is afraid that Max will lead a life of crime if he doesn't spend more time with him).
