zoot suit

A man's ensemble for hipsters and other cool dudes. Popular during the 1930s and '40s, a zoot suit featured a long coat with wide lapels and padded shoulders and matching high-waisted, ballooning pants. Fancy shoes and a felt fedora hat completed the hipster “look.” “Zoot” was apparently a variation of the word “suit.”
