* Captain Peacock of ''Series/AreYouBeingServed'' is always seen wearing [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stroller_(style) semi-formal morning dress]], which had long been abandoned by all but the staunchest businessmen, even in the 1980s. This goes hand in hand with the character, who is [[BritishStuffiness fastidious, pompous and stuffy]].

* In ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartIII'', when Marty returns to the 1880s, Doc Brown from 1955 dresses Marty in what he believes to be appropriate period themed garb. Marty protests the loudly colored faux cowboy clothing, saying "Clint Eastwood never dressed like this". When Marty gets to the past and goes into town, he is quickly mocked for his clothing and nearly gets killed by the bad guys. When 1855 Doc Brown saves him, he asks "What idiot dressed you in this? It could get you shot." Marty then says "Or hanged," then pats Doc on the back and says "You did."

** Every so often in Singapore, you'll spot older SAF reservists wearing the older-style camo pattern uniforms rather than the more recent digital camo patterns, usually because their old uniforms were in such good condition that they didn't draw new uniforms from the unit stores.

ComicBook/{{Blade}} wore some really gaudy outfits back in the 70s, which tended to be red, or yellow coats with green pants. His modern look tends to be much more appreciated.

* Very Conspicuous in {{ComicStrip/AndyCapp}} where every character's outfit ([[Main/RetroUniverse and the whole scenery surrounding them]]) is stuck in the late 50'- early 60'. This doesn't stop them from using smartphones in the more recent strips.

* While not as pronounced as others here, ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'s owner Jon has [[SeventiesHair hair]], a collar shirt and shoes that firmly put his creation in the seventies. Given his DiscoDan tendencies and general social ineptitude, not to mention VagueAge, this actually suits his character quite well.
