There's also the chance that like Indiana Jones they actually wear a lot of different clothes, but there is one that all the depictions of him have. Brown paints. Off-white shirt. Brown hat. Brown leather jacket optional. No one ever depicts him in a suit even though he wears one at points.

Reality is that, which when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away. -Philip K. Dick
Bump. I found another trope that is pretty much this called Trademark Clothing and it is not thriving at all. It really seems like this should be called Signature Clothing or Signature Outfit and not be a YMMV trope.
nobody knowsWell, if the crowner is ready to be called we can merge them both to Iconic Outfit.
A Wizard boyThis needs a moderator to call the crowner.
I think this should be YMMV or trivia because it's not a trope! A trope is a convention that is intentionally written into a work of fiction. The description basically says that it's not always intentional: "This can happen even if it's not intended to be embarrassing or funny, but simply a strange fashion choice that is never commented on by anyone else... except fans." The description also basically states that it's an audience reaction: "An outfit that, for whatever reason, sticks in the mind of the audience forever."
A Wizard boy"Intentional" is not part of the definition of trope. A pattern in media is not intentional, but is still a trope.
The home page says that tropes are the "tricks of the trade for writing fiction", which implies that they are intentional.
A Wizard boyYeah, the definitions used around the site are as inconsistent as hell. The policy-relevant definition is the one on trope.
At 25:1 I think this can be called.
Memetic Outfit to Iconic Putfit. An objective trope. Also, merge Trademark Clothing into it. It's so un-thriving we'll just do it.
A Wizard boyI did the initial moves and record-making. I'll take the wicks as soon as I am done with chemistry. Someone else will have to do any required description rewriting or example cleanup on Iconic Outfit.
A Wizard boyOK, did all the 405 wicks, except for YMMV.One Piece, which apart from being locked needs some complex treatment. Also, I've found Alternate Costume. An interesting sidenote: I increasingly end up on pages I alreay edited before.

nobody knows[clicks Alternate Costume] ...wow.
How are objective examples supposed to be determined for this cleanup? I can spot a few (and a few that obviously aren't), but I'm at sea with most, particularly in the anime/manga section.
Also, I've found Alternate Costume.On a side note wholly unrelated to this discussion, what's the current count of TRS threads?

A Wizard boyDuring my rename run, I took examples that talked about fan/audience reaction or looked like it to Memetic Mutation and left the others under Iconic Outfit.
Actually, now that I think about it, I can see a few cases where Alternate Costume might be tropable (mainly video games). But it certainly needs a reworking.
A Wizard boyI think that we should cut that page and have anybody YKTTW it if they care. From what I can tell, this repair is done now.
Not on Iconic Outfit itself, I think.
A Wizard boyWhat is still to be repaired?
Like I said, I think the examples still need sorting on Iconic Outfit itself.
A Wizard boyDid that too.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
