Here we have a really lovely boucle wool suit in emerald green by Ben Zuckerman. This suit probably dates from the mid to late 1950's and is wonderfully tailored, as seen in the close up shots of the jacket. It also features heavy green buttons that match the green of the suit's material.

This suit was sold at De Pinna's, the high end New York department store that closed in 1969. De Pinna's were known for their finely tailored clothing for men and women, and this Zuckerman suit would have been a perfect fit in the store.
