* Comedian Paul F Thompkins. Part of his schtick is fancy, somewhat old-fashioned outfits and mannerisms, like a turn-of-the-century gentleman dropped into the modern age.

* In the BetteMidler song "Big Socks", from her album ''[[GuyOnGuyIsHot Bathhouse]] Betty''. It's a BreakupSong about dumping a {{Narcissist}}ic {{Metrosexual}} man. Like much of ''Bathhouse Betty'', the lyrics apply as well to a [[QueerRomance gay man]] as they do to a straight woman.

** Brummel's fashion sense, and most notably, the dress code he devised for the Almack's Club in London, would go on to inspire the modern business suit/coat-and-tails. Strangely, his fashion sense was much more austere and simpler than the gaudy nobles and fops before and after him, he preferred a simple white on black look and a streamlined silhouette. His style caught on fantastically, especially after the [[RegencyEngland Prince Regent]] (later King George IV) began to follow Brummel's lead (he would spend hours watching Brummel get dressed just to see what he did to look so good). Before Brummel, dressing well for men meant wearing the frilliest, gaudiest, ridiculous-pattern-iest clothing possible, with all kinds of unnecessary accessories (jewels, wigs, etc.) to show off your wealth; after Brummel, it meant wearing the finest cloth, the most elegant cut, and the soberest and most austere accessories (a watch, a hat, and a cravat, all tastefully made) to show off your taste. This was helped along by the changing times: with industrialisation, anyone could get rich and afford gaudy clothes; but no matter how rich you were, you couldn't buy good taste, which suited the traditional British upper crust very well.[[note]]In a way, the Brummel style was a key part of developing the modern habit of elites favouring simple, austere styles as a means of distinguishing themselves--now that any fool could get the money could buy gilded everything and silk clothes in any colour they desired, it became a mark of distinction to wear or own something that was simple, yet demonstrated masterful workmanship. It's this kind of thinking that eventually led to Modernism and the AsceticAesthetic that continues to pop up periodically in modern architecture and design.[[/note]]

* Neal Caffrey from ''WhiteCollar'' is always impeccably dressed in 1950's era suits, and his hair is perfectly coiffed at all times. It's too early in the series to tell if this is to cover up something from his past, but the look does finish off his "charming rogue" persona nicely.

* The [[CampGay very effeminate]] Hair Eater from ''[[VideoGame/{{Onmyoji}} Onmyōji]]'', who gives us this line after the BossBattle against him.
--> '''Hair Eater:''' My hair is ruined, my skin is dirty… and my clothes are ripped. Seriously, what a horrible day.

Added DiffLines:

* Thomas Jefferson and Act 2 Alexander Hamilton of ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}''. The former is introduced in all purple velvet clothing as a way of contrasting the SimpleYetOpulent Lafayette (who is played by the same actor), and generally wears flashy, often velvet clothing. Hamilton, meanwhile, begins to dress more and more elegantly as he gains more wealth and power, which others (especially ''Jefferson'', of all people) begin to notice:
---> Jefferson: "The way he primps and preens and dresses like the pits of fashion!"
