* ''Film/HouseOfTheWolfMan'' emulates the style of Franchise/UniversalHorror MonsterMash films from the fourties.

Added DiffLines:

* The model shots in the 2014 film ''SpaceStation76'' look ''exactly'' like 1970s model shots. You can even see the strings! Likewise, the sets are designed with all the limitations seen in actual science fiction of the period.

** The recent direct-to-dvd films have been using a style heavily inspired by the original series. For example Daphne has SkintoneSclerae.

* ''American Pickers'' did a commercial entirely in 8-bit NES style. Considering the premise of the show, it's quite fitting. Interestingly, the music seems to use the extra channels of the Konami VRC6 chip with Sunsoft's trademark DPCM bass.

** A trend in the NHL (and throughout North American hockey) is to include a cream (off-white) color usually called either "vintage white" or "antique white" to approximate the natural discoloring of an eighty-year-old wool sweater. The first instance in the NHL was with the Minnesota Wild's introduction of their third jersey, and the All-Star Game jerseys from that year (which they hosted), all in a fauxback style, though the off-white was part of Minnesota's official color scheme (called "Minnesota wheat" by the team). The NHL has since only used "antique white" on designs not of genuine NHL vintage, instead using them for mash-ups, original designs, and uniforms throwing back to, or inspired by, non-NHL teams (such as the Calgary Flames' Heritage Classic homage to the Calgary Tigers, or the Vancouver Canucks' Millionaires uniforms). At least one team in each Winter Classic held from 2010 onward has used the cream color in place of white, with the Rangers wearing an all-cream jersey in 2012.

* The National Hockey League created Retraux alternate jerseys, especially among teams too new to have large amounts of history to tap into. As of the 2011-2012 season, a third of the league have jerseys in this style. The Pittsburgh Penguins are the worst offender as they have worn actual vintage jerseys from the 70s in previous years but chose to switch to a made up Retraux design for the 2011-12 season, albeit based off their original 1967 design.

** Almost always a part of a new Winter Classic jersey, especially the away side. Most egregiously the 2013-2014 classic between Toronto and Detroit. Toronto had the usual Blue and White, whilst Detroit got red and vintage white without much reason behind it.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers''. The creators admit a genuine love of fake-aging footage and such, and went through great lengths to get the Season 2 DVD to appear to be (but not actually be) worn and decades old, as if it had been in the trunk of somebody's car for 30 years. And the menu screens are done in the style of an old, old slide-show presentation of what people in TheSixties thought the future would be like. The third season was all shot in high definition in order to make the footage quirkier and grainier, not sharper or more vector-ey.

* ThomasPynchon's novels ''Mason & Dixon'' and ''Against the Day'' are both written in prose styles similar to literature from the eras in which they're set.
* StephenBaxter's ''The Time Ships'' is a sequel to ''Literature/TheTimeMachine'' by Creator/HGWells, and written in a similar late-19th century style.
