Are you in the groove? Can you “dig a zoot suit with a reet pleat and a drape shape and a stuff cuff to look sharp enough to see your Sunday gal?”

Know what a zoot suit is and what happened in the zoot suit era in WWII? Finding out is a great way to transport yourself to wartime America when the zoot suit was all the rage and Swing was the thing.

Check out the song called Zoot Suit at the page called Zoot Suit. Then explore the era that gave it birth, the suit, the slang called Jive Talk, and the history at the page that follows it.

You may be surprised to learn that the French had a zoot suit culture of their own called Zazou that was  inspired by America. This in the face of Nazi occupation while a war with the United States was going on!.

Can you dig it?
