* In ''Film/MyCousinVinny'', Vinny shows up to court wearing a particularly hideous old maroon tux he had obtained at the last minute from the thrift store. Not like he had much of a choice; the judge had ordered him to wear a suit, and the local dry cleaners were closed due to a flu outbreak, so it was either that or his leather jacket, which he already knew that the judge disapproved of.

* One of Wendy's feuding zombie ex-boyfriends in ''[[Literature/DanShambleZombiePI Death Warmed Over]]'' is dressed in a powder blue tuxedo. Dan marvels that anyone would ''choose'' to be buried, or to lay their late relative to rest, in a prom tux.

It's a disco-style tuxedo JohnTravolta could barely look good in, but the HollywoodNerd usually comes dressed up like this to a fancy event. Usually an over-the-top exaggeration of the schizoid styles used in the RealLife 70s, falling out of fashion as disco music died down[[note]]This in the West. You can easily see ruffled shirts in Asian and Arab countries[[/note]]. Frilly shirts and big ties in particular made a comeback during most of TheNineties and TheOughts until the very early 2010s, although suits had more conventional schemes.
