This was the original persona of stage magicians when they first appeared in that era. They have since relaxed as the rest of society has, and now a magician in a suit is seen as old hat (no pun intended).

* Tokiomi Tohsaka from ''LightNovel/FateZero'', who combines [[SharpDressedMan a fabulous red suit]], [[MagicStaff a ruby-tipped magic cane]] and [[PlayingWithFire hugely destructive blasts of fire.]] This style is very common among Magi in the {{Nasuverse}}, where magical studies and aristocracy go hand in hand due to how the succession of Magic Crests is traditionally handled.

* Mr. Raven, from ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', fits this once we get to know him better. He's an older man who dresses well (if a bit old fashioned), teaches history at Moperville South High School, has a strong sense of honor and will not allow rogue wizards to attack his school and harm his students. Oh, and he's also an [[OurElvesAreDifferent elf]] and [[Really700YearsOld 150 years old]].

* [[Manga/MahoutsukaiNoYome Elias Ainsworth]] would've fit the trope for a T, if not for his purple skin and an antelope's skull for a head, and the fact that he's some sort of an exiled Fae royalty (he's still on friendly terms with [[Creator/WilliamShakespeare Oberon and Titania]]), as opposed to an [[QuintessentialBritishGentleman actual country gentleman]]. He's still British, though.

If his magic is something which is passed down through blood, then it's possible he's part of a [[TheMagocracy Magocracy]], but he's definitely part of a MagicalSociety, probably with some interesting name that alludes to hermeticism or Myth/GreekMythology.

* Laurent from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' is a handsome, [[{{Megane}} bespectacled]], sharp-tongued young man who travels through the world [[spoiler: and through time and space too]] so he can help save it. He never drops a swearing word, reacts in a rather exasperated and deadpan manner to almost everything around him, and tries to keep his cool even as he can potentially become a walking PersonOfMassDestruction [[spoiler: depending on who his father is, what he inherited from him, and other factors.]]
