A fantastic Ben Zuckerman suit in a pale pink- truly outstanding! This suit, which probably dates to the early 1960's, is a heavy, thick wool and is tailored to perfection. It features a matching blouse.

An interesting picture is the close up of how the sleeves are set- all done by hand and not on a sewing machine. Also seen are the bound button holes, something seen only in high quality garments.

Sadly, at some point the buttons have been removed, but I would imagine that like all Ben Zuckermans they were of the highest quality and probably quite substantial.

The suit was sold at I Magnin, the wonderful department store that was so fancy 'the bargain basement was on the 6th floor!'
