The creation of the zoot suit can be traced to Harlem in the mid to late 1930s. Initially an African American youth fashion, closely connected to jazz culture, the zoot suit was co-opted by a generation of Mexican American youth. The oversized suit was both an outrageous style and a statement of defiance. Zoot suiters asserted themselves in the face of widespread discrimination. At the dawn of WWII, the suit was condemned by the U.S. government and over time the suit was seen as unpatriotic.
