All Dolled Up: Zoot suit riot



Where would you spot a gentleman in a cobalt blue zoot suit, you ask? Stop by a ska show at Royal Oak Music Theatre and you'll run into Toth. We caught this Reel Big Fish fan sporting an eye-catching getup and just had to ask him about his outfit. While Toth was quite a man of mystery — he let the suit speak for itself — he did tell us that he wore this entire ensemble for his wedding.

When Toth isn't sporting such adventurous garb, he's working as a security guard or spending time with his wife, who is expecting a child in June. Toth says he also enjoys listening to music, especially ska.
