Hey- my hubby didn’t wear a zoot suit, but we rented him this really kickass white suit with black pinstripes and bought him a matching fedora. You can also purchase some chains to complete the look if you choose.

Here’s one of the few pics I have so far!

 

We rented it from Men’s Warehouse tux- and it was awesome! They also carry a zoot suit black tux, in case you want to check that one out.

You’re welcome! I hope that helped. My guy’s not into traditional tuxes, and he REALLY wanted to wear white, so that’s what he picked! I got lucky with a white dress (not offwhite or ivory) so we matched. I’m trying to dig up a pic of our groomsmen, because they wore the zoot suit-ish jacket (it was long). We were planning to get chains, but we didn’t have time. My guy wore suspenders under his vest, but never took off the vest so no one saw them.

I found the pic from the web site…

I second Men’s Wearhouse. My cousin had the same white pinstriped one, and his groomsman had the black Zoot suits. They also rented the hats and bought chains. They all looked great!

You are facing our same challenge.  We wanted a Mandarin collar coat and cannot find it to save our lives.  I think there are some Lindy Hop sites that have some nice zoot suit options.  Also check out fine fashion vintage stores.

Good luck!  It’s fun doing something out of the ordinary:)

MissStellar – could you possibly post a pic of you and the hubs together? I would love to see what you 2 look like in all white. Fiance wants to wear a white suit but I am trying to veto, however if it looks good maybe…

And weren’t you afraid that he would get it dirty???
