What is "Zoot Suit" - Definition & Explanation
A severely cut suit consisting of a thigh-length jacket with wide padded shoulders and peg pants with narrow cuffs.
A zoot suit is a man's suit with wide-legged, tight-cuffed, or "pegged," trousers; a long coat with wide lapels, and wide, padded shoulders. It was described by one young fan at the time as "a killer-diller coat with a drape shape, reet pleats and shoulders padded like a lunatic's cell". The trousers sometimes, reputedly, had a special hidden pocket sewn in, the perfect size and shape to contain a billy club for use as a weapon in street violence.
A flashy suit of extreme cut.
