Whether it's a trip to the Serengeti, a jaunt through time or pulp/steampunk adventures, these are the outfits you want to wear! Worn by the AdventurerArchaeologist, LadyOfAdventure, GreatWhiteHunter, EgomaniacHunter and GentlemanAdventurer, as well as the AcePilot, and, sometimes, the BoldExplorer.

There're three stock ensembles that make up this trope, though it's sometimes mix-and-matched with other StockCostumeTraits:

'''Safari Outfit:''' Beige or tan linens, big brown belt, boots, probably a rifle and binoculars. Also, a safari hat called a Pith Helmet; ([[HighClassGlass monocle]] optional but recommended). Usually, the wearer is book smart but ignorant of what they should actually wear for the expedition. Usually accessorized with a rifle or musket. [[RealityIsUnrealistic Counterintuitively]] most of them needed more coverage in RealLife to avoid sunburns and harmful insects and during [[TheGayNineties the age of African exploration]] the pith helmet was [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Henry_M_Stanley_1872.jpg the narrow-brimmed model]] of [[UsefulNotes/AngloZuluWar Zulu War]] vintage, not the broad-brimmed "Bombay Bowler" of the post-1900 years.

'''Airman:''' Start with a Bomber Jacket (the kind with a large wool collar and lapels), then add a ScarfOfAsskicking, leather gloves and light boots.[[note]]These double as StylishProtectionGear; aircraft cabins can get pretty cold at altitude, and the scarf also prevents neck chaffing because a flyer is constantly turning his head to check his environment (especially in wartime).[[/note]] Usually has goggles (which [[TheGogglesDoNothing may or may not be useful]]) or a flying helmet, or sometimes a peaked cap from whichever Air Force they learned to fly in. When the Airman travels InSpace they'll probably swap out for a LatexSpaceSuit. If armed, it'll be with a pistol.

'''Archaeologist:''' Think Franchise/IndianaJones. NiceHat, typically a wide brim {{fedora| of asskicking}}, PermaStubble if male, leather jacket, long sleeved collared shirt, plain pants and sturdy boots, pistol holster/harness, and AncientArtifact holding satchel. If the character is a trope for trope {{Expy}} of Indy, they'll also have a [[WhipItGood whip.]] More recently, a vest may substitute the jacket, and the pistol harness might become two for DualWielding guns.

All three tend to wear [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jodhpurs jodhpurs]] (pants with extra room around the thighs to aid in horseback riding). A ''Film/MadMax'', post-apocalyptic Wanderer look can be related. A few settings take the Airman outfit, remove the scarf, [[ChainedByFashion adds chains]], lots of belts (though a few shy of TooManyBelts), [[DarkerAndEdgier much more grime]] and a rifle. A [[ABoyAndHisX trusty dog]] is optional, but recommended, but a [[BadassBiker motorcycle]] works as well. To add a {{Steampunk}} flavor to either of the above, add clocks, light metal armoring, a tool belt, and RayGun as needed.


[[folder: Advertising ]]

* Emil Holub is a famous Czech traveller and explorer from the 19th century, and a safari outfit is a staple for his fictional portrayals. A series of adverts for beer company Pilsner Urquell employed the use of Czech patriots and historical figures. Emil Holub's adventure in Africa could not be achieved without this safari outfit and a couple of beers he brought with him. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFdz4Y4nB3I Link to youtube.]]


[[folder: Anime and Manga ]]

* America in ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' has the "airman" look with a leather bomber jacket (sporting a giant "50" on his back) and black leather boots, and occasionally goes all-out with goggles, gloves, and a [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII WWII]] Air Force hat. Of course, all done to complement his overblown LoveFreak attitude, his status as the AcePilot of the [[WeAREStrugglingTogether Allied forces]], and his self-declared role of "[[JumpedAtTheCall the hero]]".
-->'''America''': ''([[TheUnintelligible slurping a milkshake]])'' Allies... good guys... Axis... bad guys... ''(finishes milkshake)'' ...And the hero is ME!


[[folder: Comic Books ]]

* The Time-Traveling parents from ''Comicbook/{{Runaways}}'' are a good generic explorer example, with all the leather and goggles and such.

* Cliff Secord, better known was ''ComicBook/{{The Rocketeer}}'' is another good example of the adventure outfit, albeit with more of a pilot bent. His most common outfit is a pair of classic pilot boots, khaki pants, and a stylish double-breasted jacket. Also his rocket pack, which greatly adds to his adventurous nature by virtue of being a rocket pack.


[[folder: Fan Fiction ]]

* Johanna Smith-Rhodes takes the safari outfit look UpToEleven in ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' fic ''Fanfic/NatureStudies''. But then, she's from [[DarkestAfrica Howondaland]], where ''everyone'' dresses like this, as befits the Discworld expy of [[UsefulNotes/SouthAfrica South Africa]].


[[folder: Film ]]

* [[http://i.imgur.com/bpMoKV8.jpg (Owen Grady)]] in Film/JurassicWorld fits this trope to the T.
* ''Film/HotShots''. Admiral Benson is wearing the traditional airman's jodphurs...while commanding a unit of jet fighter pilots. He explains that it's because his tailor ran short of cloth while halfway up his pants.


[[folder: Literature ]]

* Commander Bradshaw wears a safari outfit in the ''Literature/ThursdayNext'' series. His books were adventure stories that fell out of favour and went out of print after the 1920s, but he had to stay in character in the [=BookWorld=].
* The ComedicHero of ''Literature/{{Scoop}}'', the 1938 satire by Evelyn Waugh, is a country wildlife writer who's accidentally sent overseas as a war correspondent.

* Tails momentarily wears an airman costume in ''Literature/SonicTheHedgehogInRobotniksLaboratory'' before being told by Sonic to take it off.
* Literature/{{Biggles}} and his colleagues usually wear the Airman variant (heck, they and their contemporaries were arguably the TropeCodifier) but on occasion, they'll don Safari Outfits for hot climates.
* ''Between Silk and Cyanide'' by Leo Marks. Marks is assigned to reform the SOE code section in Cairo. His [[JewishMother horrified parents]], aghast at the countless dangers of the tropics, give him a pith helmet and make him swear never to take it off.

[[folder: Tabletop Games ]]

* Plenty of illustrations in ''TabletopGame/{{Space 1889}}'' feature similar outfits. Since the game is set in 1889 and wilderness treks and exploring are important themes, this is perfectly justified.
* For reasons unknown, the "Airman" look has become standard fashion for [[{{Magitek}} Techno-Wizards]] in ''TabletopGame/{{Rifts}}''.
* In ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' flying leathers, dusters and so on count as armour and can grant social bonuses for having the 'right look'.

** ''[[Theatre/CimrmanInMusicDomain Cimrman in the Music Domain]]'', with a sub-title "Educational evening with a one-act opera ''[[ShowWithinAShow The Success of the Czech Engineer in India]]''" . This outfit is worn by a British governor colonel.
** In ''[[Theatre/{{Africa}} Africa, or Czechs among Cannibals]]'', the leader of the expedition, Dr. Emil ába, wears this outfit throughout the play. (Emil ába means Emil 'Frog', which might allude to a real Czech traveller Emil Holub Holub means 'pigeon'.)

* Lara Croft from ''Franchise/TombRaider'' puts a "[[ActionGirl feminine]]" touch to the AdventurerArchaeologist.
** Concept art for the original game show that Lara's iconic aquamarine top isn't a shirt but a one-piece bathing suit. Considering all the swimming she does in the game, pretty practical.
** The [[VideoGame/TombRaider2013 2013 reboot]] features the "Aviatrix" DLC, which unlocks a classic adventurer outfit as gear for Lara.
* ''VideoGame/{{Uncharted}}'' has Drake in archaeologist gear.

* Ezreal in ''Videogame/LeagueOfLegends'' does a steampunk-esque version of the AdventureArchaeologist type -- leather jacket, [[GogglesDoNothing goggles]], TooManyBelts, and heavy boots. In one of his skins, he wears the goggles properly and adds a hard hat, a coil of rope, and a flashlight strapped to one thigh.
* An Archeologist-style outfit is one of the unlockables in ''Dig to China'. According to the description, it "[[GogglesDoNothing does nothing]], [[RuleOfCool looks slick]]".

** Baloo's regular outfit is an aviator outfit. Appropiate, considering his line of work.
* Simon Belmont in ''WesternAnimation/CaptainNTheGameMaster'' wore a pilot's outfit, with goggles and a backpack. The only problem is the Simon Belmont from the ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' franchise that this Simon is ''supposed'' to be based off is a VampireHunter and doesn't dress anything like this.
* The Ventures dress like this in the jungle episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers''
* Major Minor, nemesis of Snagglepuss on ''WesternAnimation/YogiBear'', safari outfit.
