-->Nice suit. John Phillips, London. (Takagi looks at him with surprise, Hans smiles.) I have two of them myself. Rumor has it Arafat buys his there.

A three-piece-suit (that is, one including a WaistcoatOfStyle) is the usual embodiment of this trope, but more imaginative outfits can qualify as well. Hats, canes, umbrellas, pocket watches, handkerchiefs, and cigars are optional...but in some environments, highly recommended. AwesomeAnachronisticApparel will often overlap.

* Loki likes to dress in nice suits whenever he visits Earth in both ''Film/{{Thor}}'' and ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' movie. Oddly enough, these suits serve no real purpose; the first time he made himself invisible to the humans, and the second time he needed to get to an old scientist in the middle of the fancy party in Stuttgart. Perhaps he just likes Midgardian fashion (or just has to be wearing the best, no matter what style he's dressed in and no matter whether anybody would actually see him...which would be in character), or perhaps the filmmakers just like putting Creator/TomHiddleston [[FanService in nice suits]] for the ladies to enjoy!

* ''Series/{{Angel}}'': Gunn after getting his brain upgrade — he stops wearing the suit after discovering what the upgrade cost him.
* From ''Series/{{Selfie}}'', John Cho's character Henry is well-dressed, and may cross over from this trope into TheDandy at times (he wears bow ties, for one thing.) In one episode he mentions his categorization system for his clothes.

* ''Series/TheWire'' - "The Bunk is strictly a suit-and-tie motherfucker." The one time he's seen in casualwear, it's to make a point about him being outside his usual habitat - and gets Daniels to quip, "I thought you were born in pinstripes."
