From the mid 1950's, a Ben Zuckerman suit, left and a Bruno Original suit, right.
'Trim suit, modern as a Stratocaster, are the first choice for the travel-wise woman for speedy trips.
Left, a miron-corded striped worsted, a fabric that sheds wrinkles easily, has a straight, slim skirt,  rounded hipline and wide lapels. Right, another wrinkle-defying suit in Forstmann's tweed that has a belted back, rounded hip and slightly full, gored skirt.'
