The creation of the zoot suit can be traced to Harlem in the mid to late 1930s. Initially an African American youth fashion, closely connected to jazz culture, the zoot suit was co-opted by a generation of Mexican American youth. The oversized suit was both an outrageous style and a statement of defiance. Zoot suiters asserted themselves in the face of widespread discrimination. At the dawn of WWII, the suit was condemned by the U.S. government and over time the suit was seen as unpatriotic.

Zoot-suits were worn by lower class Mexican and African Americans. Very loose and long pants with an extremely large jacket. The zoot-suit was a distinctive part of the "Pachuco" culture, and a way for the youth of minority groups to express their individuality and feelings of rebellion. People saw wearing the zoot-suit as a deliberate, public, and obnoxious way of ignoring the rationing/war effort after the War Production  Board nearly banned the production of them.

The zoot suit was epitome of men's fashion during the 1920's. The jacket was designed with shoulder pads and wide lapels. You can see on these two figures an overly long watch chain hangs from the waist. The pants were baggy in cut and then became tighter at the ankle.
