A lovely Ben Zuckerman suit, dating from the mid 1960's and made up of a jacket, skirt and shell.

The suit is ivory with really lovely rhinestone buttons, which are very substantial and well made. The suit jacket is double breasted and features a half belt on the back and some useful pockets at waist level. The skirt and shell are simple but in a classic shape. This suit would be a perfect backdrop for some accessories, perhaps a big broach or showy hat. The 

The material, as seen in the last two photos, is textured and is most likely wool.
