* 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.

* In-universe this occurs in the film ''The Toll Of The Sea''. Lotus Flower is a young woman living in China during the late 1910s. When she presumes her American husband will take her home with him, she tries to dress her most fashionable. Alas she uses her ''grandmothers'' old fashion book for advice. She looks gorgeous however still painfully out-of-date by several decades.

* Misty Knight still wears a poofy 1970s-era afro (weirdly, though, it's far more exaggerated than her actual style in the '70s). {{Luke Cage|HeroForHire}}, on the other hand, has managed to get his shirt buttoned all the way up.
