From The Pittsburg Press, 15 February 1954- Glow of Spring.
'A Ben Zuckerman suit of wafer-thin gold wool, with a misty brushed surface of black. A basic slenderness is evident, with a jacket that buttons close to the torso but has a comfortable width through the shoulder.'

From The Southeastern Missourian, 17 March 1961- Straighter, Softer Look Puts Ease into Spring Coats.
'The straight, rounding coat and the fitted coat make up the important silhouettes this spring. There's great variety in styling of the straight coat and even in length. We show the fitted coat in navy worsted with folded shoulder line. This Ben Zuckerman has a horseshoe collar and is single breasted.'

This really lovely Ben Zuckerman jacket, once part of a suit is made of the most amazing material. I am lucky enough to own the matching coat. This coat dates from the mid to late 1960's and is single breasted with decorative pink buttons. The material is embroidered in silk with metallic threads to add detail.

From 1961- 'In 61's Coat Circles'
'This marks the beginning of a great new sweep. The look is much-more-coat but far-less-detail. Its back flows full tide, its front untouched by button or collar, enriched only by crisp, controlled tailoring. Ben Zuckerman does it for us in pale beige or black wool, softened with fur fibre or in a vibrant rose wool. Sizes 6 to 14. $275.'

From The Sunday Daily Herald Magazine, 3 February 1957.

This Ben Zuckerman blouse, almost certainly once part of a suit, is a beauty! In golden yellow, sleeveless with a zip up the back. It is impossible to date accurately as this style was used by Ben Zuckerman many times over his career.
