||Zoot Suit Costumes
Zoot suit costumes are a great choice
for Halloween that is useful after the holiday has passed.
Zoot suits became infamous during World War II, when
production of the outfits was suspended due to the excessive
cloth used to make them. Men in the Mexican and African
American communities refused to stop wearing the suits.
The illegal crafting of zoot suits
by tailors led to the "zoot suit riots" in Los Angeles
that started when servicemen attacked a group of men
wearing the suits for not being patriotic. From that
time, the media and some members of law enforcement
equated wearing the style with membership in a gang.
In fact, some members of organized crime embraced this
stereotype and began wearing zoot suit costumes.
For Halloween and other costume parties,
the zoot suit is the perfect costume. In addition to
being a great costume that is sure to be the hit of
the party, zoot suits are useful after you've won first
prize in the costume contest. These suits are a great
choice for a night out on the town, party, prom or wedding
reception. Rather than spending money on a costume you
can never use again, invest in your wardrobe with a
zoot suit costume.
