- Character wears the uniform, but looks uncomfortable in it. Could be a trope if this is a metaphor for not fitting into the group. If so, it's related to 3 and can probably be folded into it.
- Character wears the uniform, but looks bad in it. This is an audience reaction unless someone remarks on it in-universe.
- Character goes to great lengths not to wear the uniform. Again, a trope if it is used to demonstrate something about the character.

Character goes to great lengths not to wear the uniform. This trope is used to demonstrate something about the character, such as a metaphor for not fitting into the group, or having an unusual personality for the group. Additionally, it's not a custom variation of the standard uniform, but a completely different one. Often, it's simply the uniform or dress code of the old position of the character, or it can just be something the character feels comfortable in, without necessarily being a deliberate attempt at subversion or displaying nonconformity. May overlap with Custom Uniform. Somewhat related to Transfer Student Uniforms, Still Wearing the Old Colors. Probably always separate from Non-Uniform Uniform.
