* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration,'' "Ensigns of Command." The Sheliak are hailing the ''Enterprise'', but Picard makes them wait by going over to the dedication plaque and performing the WhiteGloveTest gesture. This confuses Worf but amuses Riker. Remember that the ''Enterprise'' is a contained environment and dust is unlikely to ''ever'' settle on the dedication plaque unless things have gone horribly wrong.

* An UrbanLegend from the army about an officer who liked to do this. Whenever he found dust (and he always did), he would blow it into the face of the poor grunt and ask "Can you still see me?" One day, one of them retaliated by slapping both his hands on the officer's ears and ask back "Can you still hear me?"

* Part of the ritual for the Changing of the Guard Ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington Cemetery is the Relief Commander (who do wear white gloves) ostentatiously checking every part the incoming Guard's rifle.

This doesn't require gloves. A cloth will do. Yet old money characters will use their HighClassGloves for this.
