Well if Meme's are just assumed to be YMMV for board purposes then that's open and shut.
I still feel either way on that front the article could use a lot of trimming in examples... and just did that to put my money where my mouth was.
I tried retain examples on a basis of either being A)So recognizable even not knowing nothing else about show you know THAT OUTFIT or B)Show (or at least claim) signs of having a life of their own. The latter for things like spawning jokes/discussion/fanworks/etc out of proportion to its initial appearence, or somehow effecting the original material even if it doesn't make a lot of sense.
In general trimming examples where I felt the logic was "I like X character, X character has Limited Wardrobe
/Impossibly Cool Clothes
. MEME!!!" that blurrs out clearer cases like Sherlock's hat becoming visual shorthand to invoke Holmes.
(Also freely admit I largely skipped over certain sections, I don't know say Webcomics well enough and sorting Comicbooks would have taken as long and possibly merits just blanking the section and saying that's the point of comicbook style outfits)
