You know which sci-fi film had the best costume design?  Gattaca.

The suits on the 9-5 valids were great - and it picked up the female pantsuit trend perfectly.  But the cops (Alan Arkin, especially) wore hardboiled-detective-era suits.

Period films, whether they depict the past or the future, are virtually always a present-day fashion show.

Storm ditched the normal tropes of the future - no Jetson-style dresses or neoprene jumpsuits - and instead dressed mustachioed technophile Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix) in a slightly disorienting version of Gap clothing you'd buy at a thrift store - natural inspiration for a pricey Opening Ceremony collection.

Since when are these still tropes? What was the last futuristic film or television show or story where such ridiculous clothing was used? This would be akin to ditching the tropes of home-sized computer systems...
