Technically, the Zoot Suit was more of fashion and attitude statement supposedly, first worn by some African American and Jazz Era Artists in the 20’s and 30’s and was eventually adopted by some men in the Latino, Chicano, Filipino and Italian communities, especially in L.A., which eventually led to the ‘Zoot Suit Riots.’ Meanwhile, in Chicago, Harold C. Fox, a clothier and sometime big-band trumpeter claimed credit for creating and naming the zoot suit with the reet pleat, the reave sleeve, the ripe stripe, the stuff cuff and the drape shape that was the stage rage during the boogie-woogie rhyme time of the early 1940’s. Subsequently, Broadway Productions, Hollywood Movies, the gentleman’s ‘High Fashion,’ and “Church Brothers’ clothing industry have utilized, modified and often exaggerated the Zoot Suit for their own purposes. So have Costume Theme Party Goers. Therefore, we have a ridiculously huge collection of outlandish and wonderful Zoot Suits, Zoot Hats, Men’s Pimpin’ Ties & Pocket Squares, Canes, Zoot Chains and more, all useful for Prom, Homecoming, Fabulous Theme Parties and Sunday-go-to-Meeting Attire.
