This is a lovely Ben Zuckerman jacket that would have had a matching skirt at one point. It is made of a heavy corded wool in pale yellow. The jacket is single breasted and the sleeves have wonderful turn back cuffs.

This is a lovely Ben Zuckerman jacket, that was likely paired with a skirt. The jacket is made of very heavy wool in a black and white herringbone pattern, and is trimmed in black braid. The style of the jacket is very Chanel.

This is a stunning Ben Zuckerman jacket, once part of a suit. It is made of a very heavy and substantial wool tweed and is trimmed in fox fur at the cuffs and collar. It is impeccably tailored and would have been a very expensive suit to buy. I believe it dates from the late `50's to early `60's.

Here we have a truly stunning Ben Zuckerman cocktail ensemble. It is made up of a skirt that is knee length, and a blouse that is short sleeved and fastens with buttons up the back.
The standout piece is the jacket, which fastens asymmetrically. It has a tie at the neckline, and can be tied however the wearer would like. This ensemble would be worn to cocktail parties and similar  evening events.

This stunning Ben Zuckerman suit dates from the early to mid 1960's. It's made of navy blue boucle tweed. The skirt is simple in design to allow the jacket to shine. The jacket is perfect, single breasted with a roll collar.
