* [[Comicbook/CaptainAmerica Steve Rogers]] in ''Film/TheAvengers2012''. His fashion is hopelessly out of date (long-sleeve collared shirts, maybe with the sleeves rolled up and slacks) which makes him look stuffy and formal compared to Tony or Clint. Entirely justified, given that Cap spent the last 70 years as a [[HumanPopsicle Capsicle]]. Cap himself suggests that his old stripes and stars uniform is a bit old-fashioned. Coulson suggests instead that with everything that has happened, people "might need a little old-fashioned."

This noticeably changes as of ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' and beyond where Steve adopts a more modern haircut and wardrobe to symbolize him becoming more acclimated to the present day.

** The original design of the First Doctor's costume was intended to deliberately invoke this trope, as the combination of out-of-fashion clothes and mixed eras effectively gave the impression of an alien traveler from another time who would have only a broad idea of mid-twentieth-century fashion. (This can be viewed as counterpoint to other sci-fi time travelers who turn up dressed spot-on for the moment of broadcast, such as Gary Seven in the ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' episode "Recap/StarTrekS2E26AssignmentEarth".)

* [[CampStraight Ken]] from ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'' is very [[RealMenWearPink into fashion]] and pretty much all of his clothes date from the late 1950s to the early 1980s.

* 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."

** occasionally identifies vampires by their old-style clothes. (One of the more hilarious examples was in the episode that introduced Faith, where Faith is first seen dancing with a ''disco vampire''.) Creator/JossWhedon originally intended all vampires to wear [[FrozenFashionSense clothing matching the time period in which they died]], but realized that the concept was major NightmareRetardant. The first episode had a passing reference to the idea, with Buffy identifying a vampire based on his 80's fashion.
** Spike has been using the same leather jacket since he looted it off of Nikki Wood and has had the same bleached hair since at least before Billy Idol, seeing as it's been mentioned in canon that Billy stole his hair from Spike.

* Just... when does ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' take place anyways? Just look at Miles! The game takes place TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture and he's wearing a ruffled cravat as if it was the victorian era, although this seems to be something common to the Von Karma family he's from, and [[FirstPersonSnarker Phoenix has made snide comments to himself about his ruffles]]. This becomes weird when it's revealed that the reason Miles doesn't wear his badge was because his mentor Manfred Von Karma told him it wasn't fashionable, when nothing they wear is really fashionable.

* Johnny Thunder of the ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica sported a green business suit and bowt ie that would have been in fashion when the character was created in the 1940s, but he kept wearing it for decades afterwards. The narration in one story in the 1980s {lampshades)) this by mentioning that his fashion sense wnet into a permanent stall sometimes in the 1950s.
