Not that I would buy any, but I have a bet with myself on this…
Yea, or Nay?

BTW, it's posted on WW2, because that is when the Zoot Suit Riots took place.
I see no need to crosspost to Flames of War, though.

Yes…but the watch chains are too short.

I could easily be mistaken on this, but I think the old Shockforce range might have included some mutant mafioso in zoot suits.

I was actually looking for a Zoot suited figure several years back for an RPG character. Never found one, so I converted an interwar era mobster (for the main body)

…I like to have my ShadowRun characters wear retro style clothing.

I will listen to Cherry Popp'n Daddies anytime.

Great idea for a riot game. Sailors vs zoot suiters. DeanMoto got it, but not good for gaming. Use Pulp Figure sailors. Bob Murch, how about a pack of zooters?

I would happily buy zoot suited figs from Bob Murch.

We been askin' Bob M to do zoot-suiters but so far no luck. WWII feels a bit past the height of Pulp Fiction which was in the 30's. Just seems the switch to a war footing changed the mood of the country as far as the pulps went. Kind of tough to ignore the war when doing a story for the pulps.

Saw this Luis Tapia figure at the Museum of Latin American Art, and now I want some zoot suit figures:
