** The Third Doctor wore velvet smoking jackets and frilly shirts that the actor himself (Jon Pertwee) had worn precisely because they looked silly. He also wore a ''cape'' most of the time. And his hair, fluffed out with rollers because the actress playing his companion teased him about his bald spot, slowly increased in size as his tenure went on. He also had a tattoo (in the 1970s, before it was cool).

** The Fourth Doctor's first season outfit is a horrible shabby mess - an ugly shirt, a corduroy jacket with patches on the elbows, a tacky brown and yellow argyle cardigan, a crumpled up scarf used as a tie, scuffed shoes and baggy trousers - the aim being to reflect how young he was compared to the previous Doctors, foregoing 'mad professor' in favour of 'starving student'. And there's that scarf; a [[ThrowItIn happy accident]] (they bought too much wool for the old lady who knitted it expecting her to only use what she needed to make a normal scarf, but instead she thought she was supposed to use it all up). As the Doctor's character developed it was decided he should begin to look [[ByronicHero bohemian and byronic]] - he grows his sideburns out longer, ditches the jacket for frock coats, swaps the cardigan for waistcoats, the scuffed shoes for boots with tall heels, and the tacky shirt for a plain ivory shirt with voluminous Victorian-style sleeves, themes he sticks to for the whole of the rest of his tenure. Having established a beautiful and romantic taste in fashion, he then goes on to bury it under huge hair, a big floppy hat and several layers of hideous and ill-matching scarf significantly longer than he is tall, with awesomely disastrous visual results. Certain stories exploit this by having him remove all the mismatched parts of his outfit [[SheCleansUpNicely in order to give him a few moments of looking actually good]], usually when he's supposed to be dashing and romantic, or DarkerAndEdgier ("The Hand of Fear", "The Deadly Assassin", some scenes in "Image of the Fendahl", "[[{{Costumer}} The Talons of Weng-Chiang]]" and the punting scene in "Shada" come to mind). He tends to stick to browns with the occasional dash of dark red or purple - WordOfGod says the colour palette was inspired by the tendency to describe Tom Baker's [[BadassBaritone distinctive voice]] as "[[TastesLikePurple dark brown]]". Early on he also has a habit of doing his buttons up wrong - he buttons up his cardigan so one side is longer than the other, buttons up his frock coat so the double-breast doesn't cross right, and (in "The Masque of Mandragora") does up his waistcoat all the way to the bottom, creating a weird bulge.

** The Sixth Doctor's ridiculous clown suit (to match his ego-inflated personality). At a who-con in Tampa, Colin Baker (The Sixth Doctor) told the audience that he had chosen his garish coat specifically because ''he'' didn't have to look at it.

*** There's also his long-johns which he wore for the majority of "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E12NightmareInSilver Nightmare in Silver]]". ItMakesSenseInContext but especially on Matt Smith's lanky frame, the effect is more than a little silly.

* Anime/DragonBallSuper: [[EvilTwin Goku Black]] wears a gray gi over a black turtleneck, baggy pants, stark white boots, and a piece of red cloth wrapped around his waist like a sash. He also has a single Potara earring on his left ear and a Time Ring on his right hand.

This is typically [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in settings where characters are forced to scavenge and fabricate clothing or armor from whatever scraps they have at hand. It's especially prominent in PostApocalyptic fiction.

* On ''Series/RuPaulsDragRace'', the [[OnceASeason first challenge of every season]] involves creating a whole outfit out of unconventional materials, such as dollar store junk, curtains, throwaway scraps from a Beverly Hills boutique, etc. Since the contestants have varying design skills, the end result ranges from stunningly elegant to...[[http://www.dragofficial.com/uploads/1/9/3/9/19395567/9534860_orig.png this]].
** Season 6 contestant Joslyn Fox has this as her signature look, wearing visually-busy outfits and enough jewelry to open a mall kiosk. Considering she tends to be rather {{stripperiffic}} as well, [=RuPaul=] and the other judges are often baffled by how she can have so much on and still be so naked!
