* ''ComicBooks/JudgeDredd'': PJ Maybe's parents killed themselves during Necropolis with special pants that sort of serve the same function as a CyanidePill--coat them with water and they release a poison that kills the wearer. He then tricks a neighborhood boy into wearing them so he can take his place.

* In ''Series/CriminalMinds'', the modus operandi of the UnSub in one episode was to sew his victims into nicotine-laced dresses and wait for them to die.

* According to some fan sites, this trope was averted with [[Series/DoctorWho the Fourth Doctor's]] trademark scarf. The original scarf wrapped snugly around Creator/TomBaker's neck. The switch to a loosely-wrapped scarf supposedly happened after the original scarf almost choked Baker.

* In Creator/TimDorsey's first novel, ''Florida Roadkill'', a man is ''murdered'' by fashion. His girlfriend drugs him, slips a pair of tight jeans onto him, and then carefully soaks and dries out the pants until the fabric shrinks to the point where it cuts off all blood circulation below his waist.

* One GoldenAge ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' story had Batman pursuing four escaped killers, sentenced to die by different means of execution in different states. Each dies in a way that mirrors the way they were due to be executed. The one sentenced to hang dies when his tie gets caught in a generator.

* This trope and an urban legend based on it was used in an episode of ''CSINewYork''. The first victim was a bride on her wedding day. It turned out that she had bought her wedding gown used, and it was severely contaminated with formaldehyde. (The gown's original owner had been buried in it, and then dug up so the the gown could be stolen for resale.)

* Putting this solidly into OlderThanFeudalism, we have the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heracles#Death death of Heracles]]. After the centaur Nessus tried to kidnap Deianira, he survived long enough to assure Deianira that if Heracles' attention ever wandered, Nessus' blood would act as a love charm. Different [[Myth/GreekMythology myths]] differ on whether he gave Deianira his bloodstained tunic, or if he told her to save his blood and put it on one of Heracles' tunics. The end result is the same in both versions: because Nessus' blood was poisoned by the still-potent hydra blood that Heracles had used on his arrows, Heracles died an agonizing death upon putting the tunic on.

* It wasn't fatal, but the [[FutureSpandex ridiculously tight]] Starfleet uniforms in ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' had to be significantly redesigned after a couple of seasons because they were threatening to do serious injury to Patrick Stewart's back.

* Many if not all fantasy role-playing games include "cursed" armor/clothing that can be this, but one of the purer examples (in that it's an item that has no reason for existing other than to screw with the players) is the Cloak of Poisonousness (despite the name, any item of clothing could potentially bear the enchantment), from DungeonsAndDragons. In a nod to the Heracles myth, the description of the item in the first edition rulebook noted that [=DMs=] could, at their option, have such a cloak bear a small label reading "Nessus Shirt Company" that would only become visible ''after'' the cloak killed somebody.
