Quotes in article title

"No need for quotes in the name, is there?"

Yes there is; it's how the outfit is referred by the game! I'm willing to accept the ridiculous capitalization policy (even if it clearly goes against the lower case spelling of some of the outfits in GTALCS), but I will not allow anymore alterations that complicate linking to this article and waste my friggin editing time. - ZS (talk|edits) 01:09, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

It is? How bizarre!Is there any reason/explanation for why this one is in quotes in the game? And the Crazy '69' mission? Is it referencing something, or is it because it's a reference? gboyers talk 03:39, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
The best way to deal with things like this is to roll with what was given in the game and leave the guessing elsewhere, regardless of whether the quotation has any reason to be there. Multiple GTA websites repeatedly misname outfits exactly because they take liberties with naming and as a result the names are lost in translation. This wiki had also done the same by augmenting additional words into the names of the outfits (i.e. "Tuxedo Outfit" instead of "tuxedo" and "Lawyer Outfit" instead of "lawyer's suit"), confusing readers into assuming they are the actual names given in the game (Until they were rewritten, both the main articles and their image thumbnails constantly used the name given by the article's title rather than the original names). - ZS (talk|edits) 11:41, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
