Quotes: Badass in a Nice Suit
Better stay away from him
He'll rip your lungs out, Jim
Huh, I'd like to meet his tailor
Warren Zevon - "Werewolves of London"

I will shoot from a distance
It will kill you in an instant
Not a drop of blood on my suit
Vio-Lence - "Kill on Command"

"Promise not to bleed on my suit and I'll kill you quickly."
The Spy, Team Fortress 2

As in life, anyone in a black suit is a professional. Professionals will shoot even at gunpoint. They can also see in the dark, why not.

"What's the well-dressed professional assassin wearing nowadays? Clothes that reflect his own essential traits of cruelty and ugliness, his abberant values and black dead heart - that's what! You might not be a hired killer, but with the Dorcus line of Jackal Jackets you can stride onto the tarmac with a look that says: Women fall at my feet. Granted, they are usually bleeding heavily from the exit wound, but that's your style, tiger.."

(after taking a direct hit from a missile and surviving) "That was my favourite suit you just ruined! RRRRAAAAAARRGGHHH!"
The Gate Guardian, Samurai Jack

Tom Servo: Haggar action slacks!
Crow: Whole actions suit there.
Mystery Science Theater 3000, "Master Ninja"

"Sorry it took me so long. I had to go get my power suit."
Lex Luthor, Justice League

Lorne: Uh, Angel, you should know there's a very tall, well-dressed...[conversation continues until Hamilton arrives]
Angel: Damn. He is well-dressed.
- Angel, "Underneath"

"It's damn-decent of him to fight in a suit coat; kind of adds a touch of class to the proceeding."
