The smart suit is a recurring set of clothing in the Dragon Quest series. It is a fashionable set of formal clothing reserved exclusively for male characters and provides a high amount of defense and style for the wearer.
The suit's design has changed a little over the years but it has consistently included a modern single-breasted jacket worn with a collared dress shirt and necktie. In III and VII, the smart suit was dark purple and also included a pair of trousers. In IX and XI, the jacket is black now and trousers were no longer part of the suit, but a red rose is worn as a boutonniere in the jacket's left pocket. The suit in III included a pink vest worn underneath the jacket and has a handkerchief worn in the jacket's pocket.
In most cases, the smart suit has been more protective than some suits of armor and provides a high bonus to the wearer's Style or Charm. It is one of the few non-joke pieces of equipment reserved for men.
The smart suit has a defence bonus of +42. It can only be equipped by male Thieves and Gadabouts, making it a male counterpart to the party dress. It can be found in Edina. The smart suit can be sold for 9,900 gold, but it is not recommended to do so since only one exists in the game. It only appears in remake versions of the game.
The smart suit has a defence bonus of +40 and a style bonus of +47. It can only be equipped by the Hero and Sir Mervyn. It can be purchased for 13,200 gold at the Premium Bazaar version of the Immigrant Town and sold for 6,600 gold. Smart suits can also be purchased as prizes at the Grand Slum casino for 2,000 tokens. One can be found in Den of the Dwarves in the present.
