Added DiffLines:

*''VisualNovel/WeKnowTheDevil'': Each character wears a white dress shirt with a cross stitched onto the pocket, but otherwise the camp uniform seems malleable: Jupiter wears a bulky army jacket, the dark haired boy of Group South wears a long sleeved shirt with flame decals underneath the dress shirt, and the apparent Group South leader wears short shorts and has his dress shirt open to reveal a t shirt with his own face on it.

* The late US Chief Justice, William Rehnquist, adorned the sleeves of his black judicial robe with four gold stripes, an idea he got after seeing the Lord Chancellor dressed the same way in a production of Creator/GilbertAndSullivan's ''Theatre/{{Iolanthe}}''. Rehnquist's reasoning was that the Lord Chancellor's role in the British judicial system was historically similar in many ways to that of the Chief Justice in the [[AmericanCourts American one]]. His successor, John Roberts, declined to make a tradition of it. Some of the male Justices took to wearing a skullcap with their robes. Some of the female Justices wear white lace jabots (ruffles) or collar, in honor of the sartorial decisions of the first female Justice, Sandra Day O'Connor. In theory, ''all'' justices of the Supreme Court could modify their actual robes (the only requirement is that you have a robe; the justice has to buy it him/herself). They just don't, keeping to simply accessorizing.

Added DiffLines:

** Other variants might be possible as to the type of clothing, e.g. blazer or sweatshirt (with the school logo emblazoned on both); polo shirt instead of either as optional summer uniform; "ethnic" variants of the uniform to allow for the cultural or religious dress requirements of minorities (especially for girls).

Added DiffLines:

* The soldiers of the various clans in ''Webcomic/{{Drowtales}}'' typically wear uniform armor tailored and colored to whatever group they belong, however the various [[MauveShirt fan-sponsored cameos]] that are added have a tendency to deviate to various levels in this regard.

* Played for fun in ''Film/{{Dodgeball}}''. Before the team's first championship game, their manager tells them he ordered everyone uniforms. However, when he opens the box, he finds BDSM leather-and-chain outfits (the uniforms end up going to a BDSM club). When the team refuses to put them on, the rule-savvy one points out that they're required to wear matching clothes. They end up wearing the leather for the game, much to everyone's shock, but get their real uniforms, when the BDSM club members show up with them.

*** If you think it's bad for Catholic School Girls, all male Catholic School Boys are masters of this trope... Most of the time, the boys don't have uniforms but rather dress codes which require some kind of nice pants (khaki or black) a buttoned down collared shirt (no color specified, though tradition is White or Blue), a sports coat (navy blue or black traditionally), and a Tie, and black or brown shoes.[[note]]The reason most colors are not specified in most schools is because most of the clothing is going to be ditched the way you would expect boys to get rid of clothes and will rarely make it back to the hangers. The schools are aware of this and the fact that a freshman may hit a growth spurt over the course of his career encourage parents to by items second hand rather than buy new[[/note]] While most boys will meet the traditional but there are a few who will come to school in a sports coat that can range from Hotel Bellboy Red, to bright pink, to Green (popular on St. Patricks day). If you are really lucky, you might see a boy in a plaid sports coat in a mix of colors that would make [[DoctorWho the sixth doctor]] seem stylish (bonus points if he's wearing matching pants). How much of them get away with this varies between schools, but most do recognized that AintNoRule says that the dress code has to match or even look good on the student. And this is all before the array of ties that the kid can choose, which can range from sensible colors, to characters and seasonal themes to out and out gag ties. Even Bow Ties count. And that's before the student adds little accessories such as pins or buttons.

* During UsefulNotes/{{WWII}}, Field Marshall Bernard Montgomery was notorious for this, wearing khaki shorts rather than trousers at almost every opportunity, along with the black beret of a tank crewer rather than an officer's hat. He at first wore a slouch hat with a collection of regimental badges he had visited before he switched to a black beret with a Royal Tank Regiment and a general's cap badge side by side. Part of why he became notorious was because at a press conference at the height of the Second Battle of El Alamein he treated his switch from hat to beret as the most important news item.

* Some corporations have tried to introduce this into the workforce as a means of maintaining a 'team' atmosphere with a lean towards personality. Frito-Lay (the chip company) for example, issues employees a yearly voucher to pick up company branded apparel for official functions ranging from the obvious (t-shirts, polo shirts) to the highly specific (sweater vests, skirts, muscle shirts and sweatbands).

** Back in the 90s BestBuy used to require a more formal dress code in it's corporate offices before compromising and allowing corporate staff to wear the same "Blue-Shirt" uniform that store staff were required to wear.

** Significantly downplayed in Series/RessaSentaiToqger, where the costumes were almost all one solid color with an individual number and the same patter. Only the helmets were any different. Justified in that one of the gimicks of the season was that the heroes could swap powers with each other, so the design was to a quick change between the suit actor (in cases where there was an obvious size difference between a male and female team member). If no such change was required, they would simply swap the numbers. A male to female would also have the addition of a skirt to the new female ranger (they loved having the Red and Pink rangers swapping, as the two colors historically are gender exclusive to male and female respectively).
