This is a brown tweed Ben Zuckerman suit. The jacket is quite striking, with large patch pockets near the hip and two simple black buttons to fasten. The collar is almost a mandarin type.
The skirt is simple with a waistband and a slight flare.
This suit was sold at Doop's, which was a department store in East Orange, NJ. Doop's was well known for its wrought iron spiral staircase. As is so often the case, Doop's is no longer in exsistance.

This is a lovely Ben Zuckerman jacket, once part of a suit, in black boucle wool trimmed in black satin. The jacket has curved seams which nip the waist in. The buttons are covered in the same black satin as the trim.
The jacket was sold at I Magnin.

Here is a cream double breasted Ben Zuckerman coat. The coat has typically fantastic buttons which add drama. The coat is a fit-and-flare style, with a deep pleat in the back. Even though this coat is nearly 50 years old, it looks modern and stylish, as these fantastic photos illustrate.
This coat was sold at Amelia Gray, Beverley Hills, which was a wonderful boutique that catered to Hollywood stars of the 1950's and 60's.
