A zoot suit (occasionally spelled zuit suit) is a suit with high-waisted, wide-legged, tight-cuffed, pegged trousers, and a long coat with wide lapels and wide padded shoulders. This style of clothing was popularized by African Americans, Latino Americans, Italian Americans, and Filipino Americans during the late 1930s and 1940s. In England bright-colored zoot suits with velvet lapels that bore a slight resemblence to Edwardian clothing were worn by Teddy boys.
