Classic 1940s Men’s Suits, Zoot Suits

The 1940s were a time for men’s fashion to simplify. The War placed restrictions on 1940s mens suits reducing the exaggerated shoulders, large prints, pant width and accessories down to the basics. Pinstripe suits dominated the decade in navy blue, grey and brown. Other subtle patterns like windowpane or plaid were still popular.  For inner city youth the outlandish Zoot Suit in bright colors, big patterns and oversized features were a fashion rebellion that can still be found in urban men’s styles today.

While vintage 1940s men’s suits are usually too small for modern men these new suits have the patterns, cut and styling of the 1940s for a good enough look for most needs.
