The suit is best described by the song:
"A zoot suit with a reat pleat
with a drape shape
and a stuff cuff."
Translated for the ignorant, this means a pair of trousers reaching nearly to the armpits, ballooning to about 32 inches in width at the knee and tapering spectacularly into a cuff barely large enough to insert the foot... The suit's origin is about as obscure as its occupant's vocabulary."
