Zoot Clad Cro.


                                                     

After yesterday's posting, I feel I need to offer this.

I have always fancied owning a Zoot Suit. They are just so incredibly stylish.

I'd exchange the wide brimmed hat for my Sunday beret, and maybe do away with the chains, but otherwise I can see myself shopping, eating out, or even taking the dogs for their morning walk, dressed in one of the above suits; preferably the dark one. Oh yes.

  1. The translation of Z.S. into hebrew is so funny that I am so sorry you dont know hebrew.Google also tells me that there were Z.S. riots in 1943.

  2. It's a great look. although they do look like shady drug dealers. A beret would be all wrong though.

  6. Those baggy pants would make a chap look slimmer in the waist...is that why you like them?

  7. I love the idea of this. It appeals to me. I will imagine you somewhere in Perigord wearing the Zoot suit.

  8. My daughter went to her prom back in the late 80's with her boyfriend who bought and wore a zoot suit he found in a vintage store. He looked great (and so did my daughter in her '30's style dress). I wonder if he still has it.

  12. Go for it! Dressing to suit ourselves is one of the pleasures of getting older. With the cyclic nature of fashion, you might even bring the zoot suit back into style.
