A mid 1950's ad for a Ben Zuckerman coat. The coat has the New Look waist, and has what looks like a fur scarf, probably made from mink.

The coat was made from Anglo Fabrics, a mill owned by Paul and Leo Honig. Anglo Fabrics made very high quality material and were at the forefront of American cloth manufacturing. In 1998, after 52 years in business, the mill was closed, citing the inability to compete with oversea manufacturers.
