A wonderful mid 1950's Zuckerman suit in grey with pinstripes.

The jacket is double breasted and nipped at the waist, and there is padding at the hip to accentuate the smallness of the waist and the fullness of the hips. There are two 'hidden' pockets at the hip that are highlighted by contrasting the direction of the pinstripes, creating a herringbone design.

The skirt is straight and long with a slit at the back to aid in walking.
This suit takes a masculine idea- the pinstripes and turns it into a super-feminine masterpiece.
