Here is a stunning Ben Zuckerman coat, in a most interesting shape. From the front it has a lovely shape, with a cape-like effect behind the sleeves. The cape effect is complete when viewed from the back. So unusual and striking!
The coat is made from houndstooth and is trimmed in black mink. Houndstooth (also know as dogstooth) is a duotone textile pattern characterized by broken checks or abstract four-pointed shapes. Houndstooth originated in Scotland but is used around the world today.
