h2>Zoot Suit Riots
Suit up in this 40s style formal attire. Be a real Pachuco wearing man this Halloween. A Zoot suit has a high waist, wide cut thighs and tightly pegged cuffed trousers. Sport a long coat with wide lapels and padded shoulders and voila. Malcolm X described this vintage clothing as: "a killer diller coat with a drape shape, reet pleats and shoulders padded like a lunatic's cell". Well said.
Costumes with Character
Zoot suits first gained popularity in Harlem jazz culture in the early 1940s. These then became the street wear of choice for the fashionable Mexicans
immigrants of Los Angeles. Let everybody know that you have a unique dress code too. Look cool in gangster style, like Jim Carrey
in Mask. Top off the night with a date with a sexy cigarette girl
