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.

Zoot Suit:  the suits. Others say they were first worn by an African-American bus driver. Eventually the suits became more widely accepted for jitterbugging and african-american musicians. This lead many ethnicities to adopt the style in the 40s. The jacket was long with wide shoulders and long, wide lapels. The trousers were markedly pegged.
