A really lovely 1960's Ben Zuckerman coat in black wool. This coat features large rhinestone buttons and is slightly fitted at the waist. It also has 3/4 length sleeves which was a style often seen on the First Lady, Jacqueline Kennedy. The back of the coat has a half belt with the same buttons as accents.

The coat also features a label from Frances Heffernan -Winnetka. Frances Heffernan is a store, still open to this day, that features higher end labels. It was opened in 1932 and is run today by the niece of the original owner.
