A rare example of a Zuckerman & Kraus suit- from 1949. Zuckerman & Kraus was the company that Ben Zuckerman formed in the late 1920's until 1949, when he left the company.

This suit is really wonderful. It has three columns of buttons, with the centre button being functional and the other two decorative. This feature really jazzes up a basic wool suit. As this suit was made in 1949 it was in all probability from the final collection of Zuckerman & Kraus. You can see the excellence in tailoring and design that became hallmarks at Ben Zuckerman.

  1. My mother was BZ's showroom model for 30 years. I wore BZ in my teens and early 20's in the 1960's along with her Chanel bags and KJL jewelry. Such fit, such precision, such fun! Happy to see you are keeping him alive.
