Naame says there's a connection between juvenile delinquency and wearing zoot suits. "It must be more than just coincidence that a high average of juvenile offenders wear zoot suits with ankle-tight trouser cuffs, long flared coats with plunging lapels and king-sized ties and shirt collars." Zany apparel, he said, gives Juveniles a false sense of courage and self importance that can lead L to delinquency.
