* [[UsefulNotes/{{Baseball}} Major League Baseball]] once featured zipper-front jerseys. In 1936, Chicago White Sox manager Jimmy Dykes started wearing a zippered jersey so he could change out of it faster (due to having regular post-game commitments). The Cubs saw his jersey and liked the idea enough to give it a try as a team in 1937. This led to several teams experimenting with zippers up until TheSeventies, when double-knit polyester uniforms replaced the old wool flannels, and many teams switched to pullovers or stuck with traditional button-front jerseys. The last team to regularly wear zippered jerseys was the Philadelphia Phillies, who retired the zipper after the 1986 season. Curiously, the Phillies have avoided re-creating their zipper-front jerseys on their 1980s throwbacks, preferring to go with the later button-fronts, while other teams have used zipper-front throwbacks.

* Music/MichaelJackson in the "Bad" music video, also combined with TooManyBelts, proving the trend is OlderThanTheyThink. And considering the popularity of Jackson's work in Japan, possibly one of the main influences on it. The red jacket he wears in the "Beat It" video also counts.
** Music/WeirdAlYankovic took it UpToEleven with his parody album "Even Worse."

** ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'': Sora is the reigning king of this trope and probably the first person to come to most people's minds when this trope is mentioned. Even though his ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' and ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance'' outfits only features zippers on his jacket and zippers on his shoes, which really isn't all that weird when it comes to placement of zippers. Kairi features a pretty zipperific dress as well. In the same game, DonaldDuck has a zipper on his ''hat''.

* ''VideoGame/LethalLeague'''s resident crocodile, Latch, sports a giant zipper pull on the front of his jacket.
* In Lunatea's Veil, ''VideoGame/{{Klonoa}}'' wears a T-shirt with a giant zipper pull on the front. This doesn't appear to be attached to a zipper at all -- the front of his shirt doesn't open.
* ''VideoGame/AHatInTime'''s protagonist Hat Kid sports a giant zipper pull on the front of her coat. She takes the concept halfway between Latch and Klonoa: her coat's zipper only reaches halfway down the front.

* Deconstructed in ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'', of all places. Jon, in an attempt to be "cool", wears a jumpsuit with dozens of zippers on it. Upon the realization that he doesn't remember which pocket contains his keys, Garfield exclaims:
-->"This could take ''months''!"

** It's almost a self-parody, as at the beginning of the first ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'', they said they got their belts-and-zippers outfits in order to blend in to the world full of ''Kingdom Hearts'' original characters.

* Bruno Bucciarati from ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure: Golden Wind'' not only has zippers on his outfit, but his Stand allows him to ''attach'' zippers '''anywhere'''. Bucciarati makes zippers far more badass than they should be.

The cousin trope to this is TooManyBelts. Not to be confused with ZipMeUp which, while involving zippers, is about something else entirely. See also ChainedByFashion. A subtrope of UselessAccessory.
