What appears to be an original zoot suit, with reet pleat, drape shape and stuff cuff, has been listed on EBay. According to the vendor, this suit was in the wardrobe department of a movie studio. There is no label, unfortunately.
A perfect find for our continuing series. Bidding starts at $19.99.

Well, it sure didn’t belong to Roscoe Arbuckle. Did it?
It’s in great shape. Could it have been from “Zoot Suit” or a similar film, because it looks in too good of a condition to be much older.
@Mary: I wondered the same thing except that it has a button fly instead of a zipper, which strongly indicates a vintage piece.
