    Zoot Suit

    A suit with high-waisted, wide-legged, tight-cuffed, pegged trousers, and a long coat with wide lapels and wide padded shoulders is called a zoot suit. The outfit was usually worn with a very long hanging key chain and a wide-brimmed hat. Popularized during the early 1940s, in England bright-colored zoot suits with velvet lapels, which had a slight resemblance to the Edwardian clothing, were first adopted and worn by the Teddy boys.
