Suits- The Limber Line $225
'As you move, so moves the new suit. This Spring's thinking, outlined here by Ben Zuckerman, calls for the merest suggestion of fit- and the most beautiful suggestion of figure inside. The lines are limber, pliant, eased, especially in the soft wool crepe of our red, navy or black suit. With its own flowered silk gilet, and matching leather belt, in sizes 10-16.'

This is a stylish black wool coat dating from the 1960's.  It has large patch pockets and closes asymetrically with rhinestone 'bars.'
This coat would be considered 'in very good taste', quietly fashionable and very well made.

What a lovely Ben Zuckerman suit. Made of a dark grey knobbly wool,  it is luxurious and incredibly well made. The jacket has an asymetrical closure and is trimmed at the neckline and cuffs in fox fur. All in all it is a beautiful outfit.

This is a gorgeous bright yellow suit by Ben Zuckerman, which dates from the early 1960's. It is made of a nubby wool, trimmed in a matching yellow satin. The jacket is more 'casual' as it is collarless. This suit was probably worn in the spring and summer and is lots of fun!
